• Fire Service Visit to CFPS

    As part of Year 2's history topic about 'The Great Fire of London', our Year 2s were visited by firefighters from Northfield Fire Station. During this visit, they had the opportunity to talk to the firefighters about their jobs and they were also able to have a close look at their fire engine. This involved the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat, to use the siren and flashing lights, to find out about the different pieces of equipment on the fire engine and the best part... to use the fire engine's hose on the playground.

  • Reception Trip to Little Owl Farm Park

    Reception had a fantastic time on their recent visit to Little Owl Farm Park, with it also supporting their learning for our Summer term theme of Ticket to Ride. After a very exciting bus journey, our children had lots of opportunities to meet different animals and to explore the outdoors. The highlights of our trip were holding some of the animals and feeding the piglets, watching the sheep race and going on a tractor trailer ride where our children had to spot different animals hiding. We also made sure there was plenty of time for a well deserved ice lolly before our journey back :).

  • Year 6 at the Big Bang Event

    Year 6 had an absolutely great time at The Big Bang Fair at the NEC. This event is the biggest celebration of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) for young people in the UK. It was a fantastic opportunity to see these subjects in action, opening an understanding of how large and important a part of our society this subject is. The industrial sectors were out in all force: from HS2 to Specsavers, to Nissan's all Electric Car and Boston Dynamics' Spot Robot Dog - which was something quite awe-inspiring to showcase how science works in real life.

  • Writing Week at CFPS

    This week has been our writing week at our school. We have based this year’s writing week around a book called Journey by Aaron Becker. This is a fabulous story about the self-determination and unexpected friendships that a little girl makes after she draws a magic door on her bedroom wall, through which she visits a new world. The wonderful thing about this book is that it is a picture book, with no words, which means that every child could access this to different depths.
