Beautiful Birds of Prey 
Thursday 19th May 2016 

What have we been learning about?

In KS1 we have been learning about Birds of Prey. On Wednesday we had some visitors in school. They showed us their birds of prey and told us all about them.

Evie-Mae said, “The best part was when I held one of the birds. It was heavy.”

“My favourite thing was feeling the soft, fluffy feathers,” added Lily-Grace.

“Seeing the birds fly was my favourite part,” said Lilly-Jo.

Kelsie liked the snowy owl most of all and Whitney liked the long-eared owl.

We have read about owls in stories too. We like the owl in The Gruffalo and the story Owl Babies.

The Great Fire of London 
Thursday 12th May 2016

What have we been learning about?

We have been using the internet to learn about the Great Fire of London. The children in Year 1 made and painted some houses just like those found in London long ago. 

What did we do next?

We took our houses outside and lined them up. We put straw all around all them. We invited the whole school to come and watch because they were all excited about seeing the Great Fire of London. All the children had to sit in a safe place and only trained adults were allowed to go near the fire.

Lily-Grace said, "It was fabulous!" We all thought this was the best way to see what the fire would be like in real life.

Fabulous Forest Schools
Thursday 5th May 2016

What do we do in Forest schools?

In Year 1 and Year 2 we have been making a fence by using and weaving sticks. The fence will protect our tremendous allotment. When we have finished our digging, we are going to plant potatoes, carrots and strawberries in our fantastic allotment. Everyone from Year 1 to Year 6 will be involved in taking care of our plants or they will die.

What do we like?

We also like to explore and find exciting things. We enjoy sharing stories outside and some of us love to get muddy.

We have been learning so much and having lots of fun during Forest Schools. We take care of our environment all of the time because it is so important.

We are growing herbs.

This is our allotment.

St George and the Dragon 
Thursday 28th April 2016

We have been learning about St George’s Day in Key Stage 1.

Who was St George?

He is the patron saint of England and he killed a terrifying dragon. St George bravely fought and slayed the vicious beast. Did you know that he was a brave Roman soldier? Also did you know that he lived in Turkey?

What have we been doing in School?

In Year 1 we have read a poem all about a dreadful dragon. In Year 2 we have written commands about how to train a dragon and we have designed our own dragon. Today in our singing assembly we have started to learn a song about St George and the dragon.

We are busy learning our new song.

This is another report from the KS1 Roving Reporter Team.

Caldi Tea Party for the Queen!

We have been celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s birthday at school today. We have put on our posh party clothes and we have made fancy crowns too. Then we joined the rest of the school to play games outside in the glorious sunshine. We played Royal Corners and the Hoop Game. In Key Stage 1 our favourite game was Royal Corners. Everyone enjoyed the games because we had so much fun. Afterwards we headed to the dinner hall to collect our tea party food. We ate out in the gorgeous, warm sunshine. Mrs Steele said, “I had a lovely time in the sunshine with everyone in their party clothes.”

We all had an exciting day and we each have a special coin to take home. Mrs Steele added, “This is a special coin to keep forever.”

New for September 2014 - Enrichment Fayre & Enrichment Celebration Assembly

posted 22 Nov 2014, 11:58 by Tom Kentfield-Wells

From September 2014, we have looked to provide the after-hours enrichment opportunities in a new way! 
After consulting with the children via the Academy Forum during the Summer term, Mrs Thompson has devised a programme of clubs to take place across the year from the suggestions put forward by the Academy Forum. The clubs will enable all our pupils, from Reception to Y6, to take part in learning beyond the classroom and meet the Caldicotes Pledge 1. 
Each term the children will be able to listen to the presentation for each club at the Enrichment Fayre, then make their choice.
Pupils will be expected to attend every week of the 10 week club. At the end of the 10 week block, all pupils will be expected to share their learning from the activities that they have taken part in, at the 'Enrichment Celebration Assembly.'
(A refundable £2 deposit per child is required to secure their place on the club. The £2 deposit is returned upon full attendance to the activity for the 10 week block.)
