Science and Engineering Challenge at King's School


On Saturday 25th March, a team of 4 pupils went to King's School to represent Picklenash in the Science and Engineering Challenge. Their challenge was to create a marble run using a range of objects provided to them but the marble had to take the longest possible time to reach the table. It was an exciting  morning and I was very impressed with their collaboration, communication and team spirit.  

Bedtime Stories!

Thank you to all the children from Glebe that came back to join us for an evening of bedtime stories on Friday! We started with a few games to tire us out. Then we had a yummy biscuit and a cup of milk. We finished with some lovely stories read by Mrs Pratley.

Glebe Art Exhibition - 14th March 2017


All the children in Glebe created some lovely art work that explored different art techniques.  Reception classes focused their art work around 'Daffodils' and created different pieces of work.  Some children used iPads to create edited photographs of daffodils, some did collage work or used oil pastels and some children used ink wash.

In years 1 and 2, the children focused on 'Dawn over the Lake' and created beautiful mirrored work and wrote fantastic poems.  Well done everyone!


Some of the children's art work is being judged in an Art Competition.  We will post on the website when we know the winners and runners up.

Year 1 and 2 have a visit from the Wilson Museum!

On Tuesday 21st February, The Wilson Museum came to tell as all about the famous explorer Edward Wilson because

this term our topic is 'Into the Great Unknown'. Sophie and Bethany told us lots of information about Edward Wilson and then we did a workshop in our classes. We got to draw stuffed animals, this was because Wilson's favourite hobby was drawing animals and he also liked to stuff them! We got to play with old toys and we also had lots of fun dressing up in some of the clothes they would have worn during the expeditions in Antarctica. We are excited to learn more about explorers now!
