Visit to Frankie & Benny's

Year 2 visited Frankie and Benny's as part of this term’s topic ‘The Scented Garden’. The children had great fun designing and making their own pizzas. The icing on the cake, or the pepperoni on the pizza, was that they got to take their wonderful creations home to eat and share with their families.

The children were enthusiastic about their pizza making skills and described the trip as ‘awesome, delicious and exciting’.  One child commented, ‘The pizza was delicious.  I had ham, cheese and tomato sauce on mine.’  While Harrison was enthusiastic about the range of ingredients that he got to add to his pizza.

Our thanks to our parent volunteers for escorting our children to the pizza parlour.

Mobile Planetarium Visit

Year 1 have been studying space as part of their topic this term, ‘Moon Zoom’. And surely, (except for a St. Mary’s rocket trip!) there could be no better way of experiencing the galaxy than by journeying into the sky and seeing the stars close up which we did with a visit to a mobile planetarium.
