Our Year 5 children are visiting Green Park for two days. There will be lots of fun, adventure and activity as well as some sleep (we hope!) We'll try and post some updates here to keep you in touch with our journey!
What a fantastic couple of days with a super bunch of young people! We had great fun and we also learned a great deal about working together as a team. We've passed on our thanks to the fab team at Green Park for such an exciting adventure.
Day 2 Lunch
A great morning. We've completed another round of activities and we've had a mega-euro-champions-super-interteam-football-league in the sports hall.
Lunch is happening right now - a choice of delicious freshly made sandwiches with crisps, fruit and Kit-Kat.
This afternoon we'll be completing the third of our four activites and then we'll be ready to go home and sleep, or watch England v Fiji in the Rugby World Cup, or go to Film Night at school!
We even managed to squeeze in some birthday cake time...!
Day 2 Breakfast
We all had a good night's sleep and we're up and raring to go (some more 'raring' than others!)
We are celebrating a birthday today, in amongst all our other fun activities, so it was a rendition of 'Happy birthday to you...' this morning and some cake later.
Breakfast was delicious. Bacon or egg rolls, cereal or toast. A perfect start to the day.
It's a bit drizzly at Green Park this morning but it won't stop us getting out and enjoying the 87 acres of park and woodland.
Day 1 Evening
Great activities this afternoon and lots of fun out in the woodland. Delicious tea - breaded fish or pizza with chips, beans and salad followed by apple sponge or fruit - mmmmmmm!
Evening 'quiz' is messy and loud but great fun...
Day 1 Lunchtime
Everyone arrived in excited moods and we have had a fabulous first morning. We've explored Green Park, collected conkers, searched for wildlife and kept a lookout for 'Drop Bears' (!)
We're now enjoying our lunch before setting out for some fun sports and then our first round of instructor led activities.

You save money and time!
Your child gets a tasty, nutritious meal!
Our school gets £1320 for every registered pupil!
Your child may be entitled to receive free school meals if you are entitled to receive one of the following:
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190
Applying is really easy - and totally confidential. Just complete the form below and return it to the school office.
If your child is in reception, year 1 or year 2 it is still important to complete this form because registering for free school meals could also raise extra funding from central government which can be used in the school to raise the attainment of pupils from lower income families and close the gap between them and their peers.
Even if you don’t want your child to receive a free meal we would still encourage you to register for free school meals so that the school receives as much funding as possible. To register for free school meals, including Pupil Premium, please complete the application form below and return it to the school office as soon as possible to avoid delay.
If you have any questions, just pop in and ask us!
Look what we found! Back in 2012, a small group of Reception pupils visited the Coach House at Waddesdon Manor to sing one fo our Christmas songs for ITV's Daybreak.
I'm sure our Year 3 children will have fun spotting some familiar faces! Here it is...
