St Albans Fun Run 2016

Verulamium park was such an exciting place to be on Sunday 12th June as lots of us got ready for the St Albans Fun Run! We were overwhelmed by the crowd of red t-shirts from Bernards Heath Infant and Junior School families.  We met by our school flag and even duck came along to help us remember to keep going and not give up! After we had finished the Fun Run we got some exciting news that our school had won the Primary School Challenge for the largest number of runners!                  In assembly Councillor Annie Brewster came to present us with our trophy and congratulate those who ran this year and ask who would like to run next year. We feel so proud of children and adults who tried their best and ran in the fun run, it’s great to be part of such a big team!                 ...

Maths Week – Bernards Heath Business School!

It was Maths Week in school and the children learnt all about shops, coins, buying and selling. A visit to Londis for Verulam class helped them with their market research.  What types of ice lollies do they sell? How much do they cost?  What should we put into our ice lollies?  The grown-ups were invited in to buy their lollies and visit their class shop. Heartwood Class worked in teams to create their own biscuit designs ready to sell to their customers, whilst Clarence Class were busy designing, making and selling jewellery!  What a successful week jam packed with learning.  Thank you for your donations; altogether Maths Week raised over £130 to spend on maths resources.

A visit from a Member of Parliament

Last Friday Oliver Dowden, the MP for Hertsmere, visited us.  In our Proud Assembly he explained what an MP does and how he became an MP. He gave the children pointers as to the important things they had to learn if they wanted to be an MP too. We need to remember to: speak clearly and loudly listen to people’s ideas and problems think of what we need to do to make our community an even better place. Mr Dowden then led a School Council Meeting all about parking safely outside our school. The Councillors discussed the problems and suggested solutions which we voted on. The School Council will now meet with Mrs Rimmer to decide what to do next. Thank you to Mr Dowden for a very interesting visit. Gill Fenner .  ...

Ranger Paul visits Bernards Heath

Today we had a special visitor at school; Ranger Paul and his collection of insects, arachnids and snakes. Ranger Paul set up camp in Morpurgo class and our Year 1 and Year 2 classes came to visit him throughout the day. Children learnt lots of interesting facts about his rainforest creatures including; how they are adapted to their environment, how they avoid predators, and how they catch their prey. One particular favourite was the Orchid Mantis which disguises itself as a flower and then pounces on bees when they arrive looking for nectar. At the end of the day Ranger Paul hosted an assembly for the Foundation Stage children so they could enjoy meeting some of his...

Bring your parent to school…

On Saturday morning children from across the school became tour guides! They arrived at school with mums, dads, grandmas and grandads and proudly took them on a tour of our school. It was a really special event that was very well attended. Children enjoyed sharing their learning with adults and showing them all the places they like to learn. Thank you very much to the teachers for setting up their classrooms and coming to school on a...
