Another great year comes to a close!
It has been a busy end to the summer term here at Pilgrims, with our children enjoying another bumper year packed full of fun and engaging activities. Here, Pilgrims’ Headteacher Mrs Webster looks back at a brilliant 2021/22.
It was great to have all our children back in the classroom this year, with all year groups diving head-first into the term-time fun.
From superhero days to canal boat tours, the children enjoyed a fantastic year and embraced every minute of their learning.
An awesome autumn
The packed-out calendar kicked off with a bang for our Year 2 children, who learnt about the super powers held by animals and even had a chance to dress up as their favourite superheroes during a visit from five-time skipping world record holder Peter Thompson.
Year 1 learnt about the oceans and the amazing creatures that live in them. They had a visit from a scuba-diver and took a trip to The Sea Life Centre to enhance their learning experiences in the autumn term.
Our reception children also learnt about the world around them and discussed their dream jobs – from Formula 1 racing engineers to firefighters and vets.
The school received a festive freshen-up for Christmas, with the children enjoying a visit from Father Christmas alongside a lunch with all the trimmings and a round of carol singing.
A summer to remember!
As the world ‘opened up’, our children were able to go on their much-awaited school trips: a trip to Woburn Safari Park for the reception children as part of their “Animal Tales” topic, the Year 1 children enjoyed a canal boat ride in Stoke Bruerne as part of their visit to the canal museum and Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their three-day residential trip to Hindleap Warren, jumping into muddy pools and taking part in teambuilding tasks like den building.
We have all enjoyed a lovely year, topped off with sunshine to round off a super summer term. We can’t wait to see you back in school in September and wish you a very happy summer holiday.
