Y6 Trip to The Globe Theatre
Y6 visited The Globe Theatre in London on 1st February as part of their Shakespeare topic on Macbeth.  They participated in a workshop exploring the play, enjoyed a tour of the theatre and backstage, and were lucky enough to perform a line from 'the Scottish play' on stage!  Well done to the children for their impeccable behaviour and being excellent ambassadors for the school.

Children in Need 2016
We had some fantastic, imaginative hairstyles in school on Friday 18th November in support of the Children in Need Appeal.  Every child bought in £1 and relished the opportunity to dye their hair, wear multi-coloured ribbons, wigs, bottles and even a birds nest in their hair!  Well done to everyone (including the teachers!) who took part and donated to this worthwhile charity.

Y1 visit to Milestones
On 20th January, Y1 went on a trip to Milestones Museum to support their current Toys topic.  The children took part in an ‘I-Spy’ Trail around the museum, a toy sorting exercise and especially enjoyed discovering what old shops looked like. The old fashioned arcade games were also very popular!  Everyone had a great time and the children have lots of new experiences that they will be able to apply to their learning.

A right royal day out!
Y2 enjoyed a day trip to Windsor Castle on Friday 3rd February.  The children visited the State Apartments and St George's Chapel, as well as watching the the Changing of the Guard.  Y2 loved learning more about the Queen, re-enacting the Coronation and being presented with the Order of the Garter!  

A runaway success!
On 27th January 12 of our Y5 and Y6 children competed in the Bracknell Forest schools Indoor Athletics Finals. The children performed brilliantly, finishing  joint first on 350 points!  Well done to all those who participated - we're very proud of you!

Science Week
Miss Hughes kicked off Science Week on Monday 6th February with a whole school assembly.   Our learning objectives and values for the week are to ask questions, understand and make links, discover together and enjoy the week!  The children were buzzing with excitement on hearing the planned activities, and we are looking forward to welcoming guest scientists into school during the week to discuss their work.

Welcome to Binfield C.E. Primary School (VA)

  • Science Week – a huge success!

    Science Week has created a real buzz around the school and the children have been completely engaged by our visiting scientists and the experiments they have undertaken during the week.  The learning objectives and values for the week were: To ask questions, to understand and make links, to discover together and to enjoy the week.  I think we can safely say that the children achieved all these objectives!

    I received a lovely letter from a parent on Thursday, explaining how much her son has enjoyed the week and how he can’t wait to try more experiments at home.  She concluded by saying: ‘Thank you for igniting a love of science this week!’

    In addition to our visitors, we were lucky enough to have Miss Hill talking to the children about what being a member of the Binfield Badger Society involves, and Mrs Slocombe who  shared with the children her love of archaeology and experiences of ‘Big Digs’!

    I would like to thank our visiting Scientists this week:  Mr Weston, Miss Ford, Mr Gough, Dr Boehmer, Mrs Hall and Dr Murphy.  I would also like to give special thanks to Miss Hughes for doing such a brilliant job of organising such a fantastic week of activities for the children.
