Year 1 and 2 Visit to the Iver Environmental Centre

 

On Tuesday this week, pupils in Years 1 and 2 had a marvellous day out of school visiting the Environmental Centre in Iver.  

In year 1 pupils had great fun pond dipping and looking intently to see what they had found before returning it all back into the water. They also spent part of their morning on a mini-beast hunt, which caused great excitement. In the afternoon they had a fun session using natural resources to make bug hotels which is always a very popular activity.

Year 2 pupils had a different itinerary for their day at Iver.  Taking the theme ‘Seed to Supermaket’ they explored how seeds, fruits and animal foods make their journey to the supermarkets and ultimately onto our plates. In the afternoon they took part in milling grains into flour and churning creamy milk into butter.  It was then very exciting when they were then able to taste their butter on crackers.

We are very thrilled and very proud to say that, following a comprehensive inspection we have ‘met the exacting standards required to be awarded the School of Character’ Kitemark.’ This is a very prestigious award which recognises that we teach the children sound values which enable them to make good choices. There were rigorous interviews with staff and Governors and two children, Ivie and Eshan from Year 2, were splendid ambassadors for our school. The report is very glowing and here is an excerpt: ‘The two pupils who showed me around the school were confident and well-informed regarding the values which the school reinforce at every turn. It is also clear that learning experiences at the school afford them the ability to grow and develop in a nurturing environment, which does not shy away from providing both challenge and personal care in equal measure.’
