COTSWOLD WILDLIFE PARK
The pupils of Charter School have had the opportunity to visit Cotswold Wildlife Park on the 2nd October 2014. The trip was funded by the CSFA and will provide a basis for learning throughout the year. All the children had a great time, they saw lots of animals and were lucky enough to take part in workshops that were run by the zookeepers.

Years 1 and 2 visit S.S. Great Britain:
Our pupils of years 1 and 2 recently enjoyed a great day out to visit the S.S. Great Britain. The weather was a bit chilly, but the day was enjoyed by everyone!
One of our Year 2 pupils had this to say:
“It was very smelly in 2nd, 3rd and 4th class. It looked like a Rat was trying to bit a ladies toenail off! It must of been noisy in 3rd class because of the engine.”
Year 4 Residential to Braeside:
Our Year 4’s had a fantastic trip to Braeside. They braved the cold weather and took part in some great activities such a High Ropes and Pond Dipping!
Georgia, one of our year 4 pupils, had this to say about her visit:
“Braeside was really fun, we did loads of fun stuff! My favourite was survival skills because we built a den and it survived!”

Year 5 & 6 visit Stonehenge
The first week of Term 2 saw the year 5 and 6 classes heading for Stonehenge. The visit was part of their study of the local area and provided a hands on experience of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The children were lucky enough to enjoy a tour of local burial mounds as well as visiting the stones under the supervision of knowledgable tour guides. They produced a short piece of music and paraded towards the Henge via a Bronze Aged Avenue. A great time was had by all.
“We really enjoyed our time walking around the stones. They are absolutely massive and have loads of history behind them.” – Year 6 pupil.
Key Stage 1 were due to visit Weston Super-Mare but unfortunately due to the poor weather they had to cancel. Instead the Children enjoyed a seaside themed day, which took place in the classroom and involved fun games and activities and a picnic lunch.
