On Monday the whole school flew with Springmead Airways to lots of distant exotic locations. Children travelled to China, The Netherlands, Australia, Hawaii, India, New Zealand and Japan. They took their passports and got lots of different stamps. They came home with some wonderful souvenirs, such as boomerangs, leis, and origami from Japan. They tasted exotic Indian food, learnt to dance in an Indian style and do the Hakka in New Zealand. They made Sydney Harbour bridge from spaghetti and marhsmallows, learnt to make tangram shapes in China and made Japanese fans. At the end of the day the children flew back to Welwyn Garden City very tired and with a little jetlag!
On Friday 5th June, year 5 spend the day trampolining with Rising Stars.
They learnt how to make shapes in the air, how to seat drop, front drop
and how to stop safely. It was a fun packed day with lots of games
involving two to four children on the trampoline at one time! Overall the
children had a great time, especially for those children that had never been
on a trampoline before. Good work everyone!
Nursery designed this colourful Elmer using a variety of textiles.
All of the sports day events were very successful and Digswell won the KS2 event. As usual the sports' days finished with the adults' races and the teachers' race.
