CYE November 2019
What a fantastic time so far at CYE! The children have been sailing, rafting and tunnelling as well as a night walk and movie night (it was raining...a lot!!) Great first time experiences for lots of the children. They have shown lots of resilience and have been surprising themselves and impressing the adults with their bravery and 'have a go' attitude. More exciting activities to come!
We woke to another beautiful sunrise and view from the portholes this morning. Kayaking, archery and team work on the assault course have been the order of the day. Everyone worked up an appetite and we finished off with a delicious chicken pie followed by apple crumble and custard. The children had great fun singing along with Joel and his guitar and playing singing and riddle games. Finishing off with our last activities tomorrow, before we make our way home.

10.9.19 Last day at Dell Farm
After a morning of packing, archery and caving, tired but happy children made their way home. They all recieved gifts of teddy bears and keyrings as a memento of their stay, along with praise for their behaviour and 'have a go' attitudes. We hope they had a fab time, we certainly did, and thanked the staff at Dell Farm and Mrs Mitchelmore from Totternhoe for arranging a fun, fab stay for us!
ALL of the photos of our stay are on the Oak class page, be warned, there are a lot!
9.7.19 Dell Farm!!
This morning dawned VERY early for some of the children today. After breakfast, the children groomed and fed the animals on the farm. We were then very busy building shelters and lighting fires, which we had to keep going for half an hour, harder than you think. In the afternoon, the children became foxes and the teachers became the farmers. Whilst the children were running around the farm collecting clues on a treasure hunt about foxes, the farmers were chasing the foxes away with water pistols, lots of fun for everyone! A movie and games night finished off our second day, along with a bit of wellyball.
The first day of Dell Farm has finally arrived! The Year 4 children of Kensworth and Totternhoe have had a great day and are now very tired out. We have hiked the Downs, played in the woodland park, climbed trees, flown kites, thrown frisbees, caught sticky balls, had lunch, made beds, changed shoes...a lot, eaten dinner, been Roman Soldiers, been Iceni soldiers, fought a battle, had a campfire, drunk hot chocolate, eaten biscuits, brushed our teeth and finally gone to bed.
Head over to the Oak class page to see the photos from today.
Kensworth's first music recital was held this afternoon. Attended by many families, the children were able to demonstrate their new musical skills, with thanks to the PTA for providing new recorders and glockenspiels to add to the whole school Charanga music package. I think you will agree they were 'AMAZING!'
Well done everyone!
Well done Mrs Cowell!!
This week we were externally moderated for our Year 2 SATs results. The moderator changed grand total of ZERO of Mrs Cowell's judgements and she said that she could find NO areas for development. Isn't she a super star!!
Yesterday we held our ProKicks challenge in school. Tom K was overall school champion with a speed score of 52mph!! Mrs Harrison was most disappointed that Mrs Cove beat her teachers winning score with the last kick of the day!
CYE are back! Take a moment to have a look at the photos, they all had an amazing time!
No news on the old hall roof at the moment, but in the meantime we are making the most of our warm and comfy new building!
Thank you to everyone that came to parents evenings. Remember if you couldn't make it staff are happy to see you before or after school.
Keep looking at the dates for the diary section as all the Christmas events are being added.
