Memorable Experiences

In the ‘Engage’ stage of our Curriculum our children get an exciting introduction to their new project. They gain memorable first-hand experiences, such as going on a visit or inviting a special visitor into school.


Evacuee Day

"We'll meet again, don't know where don't know when..."


Cedar Class were transported back in time to launch their project 'Britain at War' during their evacuee day!

To start our day, we said a tearful goodbye to our grownups, before going with our billeting officer to to the "village hall." Here, to the tune of 1940's music, we were evacuated and registers were taken to ensure that the children could be traced. Did you know that siblings were not always placed together?

After break, we were surprised to find letters from our grownups at home. We wrote responses detailing our new lives before putting these into envelopes ready tp "post" home. Some children detailed how they had never even seen cows before!

Following this, we learned more about the evacuation process as well as the Blitz. As part fo this we completed a mock airraid - this was terrifying!

In the afternoon, we were thrilled to try some ration recipes icluding carrot cookies (delicious) and Lord Woolton pie (bland but filling). These were so popular that some pupils even took these recipes home and made the recipes for their families to try out!

To finish the day, we completed some charleston dancing before we discussed our favourite aspect of the memorable experience. The day was fantastic as were the costumes. The children really got into the spirit of the day.

Cogges Farm

Cherry Class had the most wonderful day at Cogges Farm to launch their project 'Sunshine and Sunflowers'. The children explored the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, milked a model cow, hunted for eggs, baked, and looked at seeds and plants. What an amazing adventure!

Pupil Voice;

"My favourite part was meeting the working dog, Barney. He was very cute when we met him and he was only one year old but he was a big dog! We got to walk him and feed him treats."

"My favourite part was meeting the pigs and the piglets. They are my favourite animal at Cornbury park. I liked how cute the piglets were and how massive the Mummy was."

"I really enjoyed catching the butterflies. We caught a horse butterfly; it was really hard to catch them"
