In Year 2, we are all getting ready for the celebrations at the end of, what has been, a very busy term. The children in Stourhead and Wardour have learned so much about Antarctica, that they feel confident in putting all their learning into practice when we have a joint explorer’s day on Wednesday 19th December. The children have also been working hard on their Nativity and look forward to seeing everyone there to celebrate their efforts.
An amazing array of dinosaurs (big and small, spotty and sparkly, fierce or friendly!) have been coming into school to join the year 1 children of Silbury and Wylye. These fantastic models were part of a holiday project. Parents, Grandparents, friends and family have supported their children’s learning by helping them create a wonderful range of dinosaurs. The pupils keenly talked about what they made with their adult. These are only a few of the brilliant models.
A big thank you to everyone who gave their time supporting their child’s learning.
We received a visit today from the Little Red Hen. She had left us the ingredients to make bread and asked if we could help her. We really enjoyed making it and I hope you’ve enjoyed tasting it at home.
Well done to all the year 6s who created an amazing bake-off event to help support Wiltshire Air Ambulance. With the help of Mr.Cooper and Mrs Griffin, they helped to raise an astonishing £144.13 from their patisserie prowess. Also thank you to parents and students of Westbury who helped support by buying every last crumb of confectionery on offer.

Silbury and Wylye children have had an exciting start to their new classes. An amazing dinosaur egg has been found and this led to lots of wonderful speculation from the children about where it came from and how it got there. Children were eager to give their ideas – “A Pterodactyl dropped it”, “A dinosaur has lost it and will be really sad”, “I think its from a T-rex because it is the same colour as a T-rex – all spotty!”
