  • Professor McGinty Visit to Year 5

    On Wednesday the children in Year 5 took part in an Ancient Greek workshop with Professor McGinty as part of their new topic. They had a fantastic time and learnt lots about what life was like in Ancient Greece. We got to handle lots of artefacts and even had a go at writing on an ancient tablet made from wood and beeswax that children used in school. Some children had a go at dressing up in traditional Ancient Greek clothing.

  • Year 5 and 6 residential

    This week, 48 pupils from Years 5 and 6 and 5 intrepid members of staff went on Colmers Farm Primary School's first ever residential to Boundless Outdoors Bell Heath Centre. Residential experiences are something we are passionate about at Colmers Farm School and this forms part of our Colmers Farm Primary Guarantee (click for more details regarding this). We believe that this is something that as many of our pupils as possible should experience and this will now hopefully be an annual event on our school calendar. The memories from this experience our pupils will always carry with them.

  • Year 3 Zoolab Visit

    On Monday, Year 3 had an amazing experience, as part of their Amazon Rainforest topic, when some rainforest creatures came to visit our school. The children recalled facts about the layers of the rainforest and its climate before getting close to a tarantula. A giant millipede crawled its way across some of our hands whilst a snake slithered across others. A giant land snail left its mark before we met some friendly rats.

  • Year 2 Fire Engine Visit

    On Friday, we had a fire engine visit Colmers Farm Primary School to check they can access our site. At Colmers Farm, we are always looking to utilise every possible learning opportunity, and this was an opportunity that was too good to pass up. We therefore rather cheekily asked whether our Year 2s (who are currently learning about the Great Fire of London) could have a tour of the engine. The fire service very kindly obliged.
