Deep Sea Diving

Borrowers were incredibly lucky to be visited by Mr. Hartley who fascinated us all with his knowledge of diving. The children had the opportunity to try on some of the diving equipment and learned how to talk underwater. They asked lots of thoughtful questions. Parents have also told me that their children shared the things that they'd learned. A huge thank you to Mr. Hartley for sharing his experiences with us.


A huge thank you to Mrs Shah-Evans for inviting the Borrowers to join her for Diwali celebrations.

The children had a brilliant morning making Diwali cards, tasting Indian food and making samosas. Quite a few children surprised themselves by eating and enjoying food that they hadn't tried before.

Thanks also to Mrs Thompson and Mrs Watson who assisted.

The Deep

The Borrowers had a fabulous time at the Deep yesterday exploring predatory marine animals. It was a great end to our Predator topic and the perfect introduction to our Blue Abyss topic.


After closely observing our favourite predator's skin, we made a fabric collage of it using tactile materials. Some of the cutting out was tricky but children all acted safely and sensibly with the scissors. We can't wait for you to see our creations at our Golden Moment on Thursday afternoon.

Bonjour ma famille!

This term in Borrowers we have been looking at how we'd address our family and friends in French. The children are developing beautiful accents and this morning they had the opportunity to use the computers to complete some French activities.
