During Adventure School this week, the children were introduced into the challenging world of knots.
If, like me, you can never quite remember the correct knot for the specific occasion then pay close attention! The reef or box knot was first to be attempted. The basic use is to extend the length of a rope by attaching a second rope securely.
The second knot was a taut line hitch. If I were to suggest one knot that everyone should be able to tie then this is the one. This knot can be used as a line between two trees for a shelter or to secure objects. As you can see from the images below, the children did really rather well. The next step is to use the taut line hitch to make their own shelter using tarpaulin.
The children in Years 3 and 4 have been exploring the fascinating world of volcanoes and had a rather enjoyable time merging Science with Geography and making their own eruptions.

We are in the process of developing a new website. We are hoping to reveal our new site in February 2018.
The grid calendar is back up and running, although we are still trying to publish 2018-2019 term dates and remove the 2016-2017, however they are in the grid calendar.
Please help us maintain the very best relationships with our neighbours by not blocking or parking in their drives when dropping off or collecting your children.
Please do not park on the yellow chevrons directly in front of the school or across driveways for the safety of all of our children.
Could I ask that you ensure that waterproof trousers, Wellington boots and coats are brought into school on the relevant day (regardless of the forecast) so that we maximise our use of Richmond Park.
