Mount Cook update...

Wow - what an amazing time we’re all having at Mount Cook! We’ve taken part in a range of activities including sensory trail, climbing, fencing, Jacob’s ladder and the amazing zip wire that stretches from the roof of the building right across the site. Lots of us have fought our fears and tried something new, whether that is climbing higher than we thought we could, singing a silly song or trying something new for dinner. Behaviour has been superb and everyone got some sleep, including the teachers! 

We’ll see you all back at school tomorrow!

Young Citizens’ Day

On Wednesday 11th October Kestrels attended the Daventry and South Northants Young Citizens’ Day at Northampton Saints Rugby Ground. During the day they learnt all about how to keep themselves safe, and that the most important and influential people in their lives are themselves. They took part in workshops about online safety, calling 999, looking after their property, spotting hazards around the home and safety around trucks on the road. Our year 6s demonstrated exceptional behaviour, participated enthusiastically in all the activities, and learnt a lot too! Well done year 6 - you are excellent Young Citizens!
