Art, Nature and Air Balloons

There has been a great deal of art going on in the classrooms and at home this week. Woodpeckers are using watercolour paints to paint rainforest wildlife, and Eagles are also using watercolours to paint landscapes of Jesus Green, following their sketching outdoors last week. As inspiration for their work in Art and English, Flamingo Class have been using the book ‘Flight for Freedom’, about a family’s escape from East Germany in a hot air balloon. The children in school are making hot air balloons from papier-mache.

Some children from Eagle Class helped me with Collective Worship this week, by recording a play about ‘Perseverance’.

As a school we seek to be child-led. When the Governing Body asked the pupils across the entire school to discuss what our core values are, this is what they said:

Prospective Parents

Learn about life at our unique ‘village’ school situated at the heart of Cambridge.

With only 120 pupils, relationships are at the heart of the school, where every member of staff knows our children and families well.
