Summer Wall Displays at The Orchard
On Friday 27th March, 10 schools from Surrey Heath took part in a Multi-Skills Competition, held at Collingwood College in collaboration with Brunel University. We entered a team of fifteen Year 2 children from The Orchard and Tall Trees Campus. There were 8 activity stations requiring skills in agility, balance, coordination and speed. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and showed real passion and skill at each activity and worked together as a team. They really did us proud!

Parents came along to a coffee afternoon at Tall Trees to meet the new Head of Campus and enjoyed chatting with her.
On Wednesday 4th March, several schools from Surrey Heath joined together to compete in the Building Challenge, which was hosted at Redwood Campus.
We entered a team of Year 5 contestants and a team of Year 6 contestants to represent our school this year. The children competed in a task designed for students in Year 9 using skills essential to the construction industry, including design and budgeting.
The children had a fantastic morning and we are incredibly proud of the way in which our children conducted themselves as superb ambassadors for our school.
World Book Day 2015
The whole school took part in World Book Day by dressing up as a character from a book/a super hero. We were very impressed with the costumes and the enthusiasm from the children.
Here are just a few photos to enjoy!

Fun in the Snow
The children at The Orchard had a lot of fun in the snow! We built snowmen, made snow angels, had a go in sledges and even threw snowballs at the teachers!
Cooking Club at Redwood Campus Autumn 2014
Cooking club is a 10 week course of basic cooking skills. The children begin with cutting and chopping to produce a Ratatouille, moving through to Bread and Pizza and finally producing a delicious Cheesy Muffin.
The club is open to all but can only accommodate a few children at a time as proper kitchen equipment is used, including very sharp chef knives, and close supervision is required.
As recipes are used to make our food, the children learn to accurately use scales and measuring jugs to weigh and measure quantities and follow instructions carefully. The children work in pairs so cooperation with others is essential. The only requirement for participation in cooking club is that each child brings a container every week to take their food home in.
‘’Cooking club was great fun and working with a partner was really nice because we had a laugh and I made a new friend whilst working together and making brilliant food”
Ellie, Year 4.
