MK Dons Move and Learn Project Summer 2021

Children in Year 4 and Year 5 have enjoyed being part of the six-week MK Dons Move and Learn Programme which has been delivered by Kevin.


The six-week programme comprises of a combination of physical and theory elements. Firstly, the physical aspects of the programme includes various different warm-up games and activities to develop the children’s ABC’s. All activity is derived around the National Curriculum for PE, with some being sport-specific (football, handball, dodgeball). All activities are differentiated to ensure challenges and opportunities for success are provided for all pupils.


Secondly, the theory elements delve into various different areas of physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Starting with the benefits and effects of physical activity on the body and mind, pupils have explored the Eatwell Guide and have used this knowledge to investigate meal planning for a healthy, balanced diet. The final two weeks consist of the importance of hydration and the Joy of Moving, leading into each pupil making a personal pledge about physical activity and exercise.

Grandparents Afternoon Tea to celebrate Harvest - October 2019

Y5 had a lovely morning in October with the Year 1/2 class. It was all about 'shape'!

Year 6 had a great time at Woburn Safari Park in June.

All our lovely new books bought with the money from the sponsored read - well done to everyone who took part

To begin the last half term of the year we had a 'science week' in Y6 - all about the human body.

The Year 6s celebrated the end of SATs week by donning our wellies and trampling overgrown grasses, as a result of the recent rain in, in our conservation area.

Today we said, 'Goodbye' to our much loved LSA, Mrs Stevens, who has been with us for three years. We wish her every success in her new venture.

Thank you to students from Sir Thomas Freemantle School who came in and did a workshop with Year 3 and 4, then sang to and with us!

Taking our inspiration from the artist, Andy Goldsworthy, we created our own Easter Experience sculptures outside.

Fun outside as the weather starts to improve... thanks to the new 'all-weather surface' on the trim trail!

Congratulations to our two wonderful choirs who entered the Milton Keynes Festival in March. The KS1 choir scored a Commendation and the KS2 choir scored an amazing Distinction!

Thank you for all your cake contributions. We made a whopping £105! It was a delicious morning.

Welcome to the gallery! Please enjoy browsing our photographs.

In October the Year 2 children from Whaddon First School joined us for 'Muddy Feet Friday'!

We had great fun doing some Egyptian Belly Dancing on Languages Day in September. We are told it's very good for toning the tummy!

Acorns and Conkers love to sing. They were in good voice singing campfire songs last summer!


Look at the fabulous cake that Callum's auntie baked for Year 6 leavers. We enjoyed it in the staff-room too!
