Children's thoughts from the day: "I found the pumpkins in the Great Hall amazing, I've never seen it dressed with pumpkins before." "It was so much fun, I'll definitely come again!" "Just standing next to the Hogwarts Express, even though it wasn't the real thing, was incredible." "Best school trip ever!" "The spiders [...]
Budding artists from Year 6 visited Lord William School today. They are taking part in The Big Draw at Thame Museum, their work will be displayed in the window of Glynswood, Thame later this month.
After a day of themed activities, Years 5 and 6 rounded off their Autumn term topic by performing their Greek dances and a version of the Hercules story which they had written in rhyme!

Years 5 and 6 had a magical time at the Warner Brother's Harry Potter Studio Tour. Plenty of inspiration for their 'Heroes & Villains' topic and especially their writing. All children returned in one piece and avoided any transfiguratons!
Many congratulations and a huge thank you to Year 6 who are leaving us this term. We wish them all the very best in their new schools and hope they will come and visit soon. They have been extremely generous with their parting gifts of a table tennis table and new Sports Day Cup; a [...]
