Governor Activities

Our governors are in school on a regular basis. Lots of their work is behind the scenes, but they also find time to take part in a variety of visits and activities with the staff and children.

Here are a few of the things that governors have taken part in:

Cosmos Planetarium


Year 5 have had the most fabulous, amazing and OUT OF THIS WORLD experience today. We have been visited by Steve from Cosmos Planetarium who brought a mobile, inflatable planetarium dome with him. It was so big we had to put it in the Parish Hall!!! Were also joined by two of our governors, Mr Goulding and Mr Starkey.

Once inside the dome, we visited the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn's Rings, Mars and explored the constellations of the night sky. This took our breath away!!

Next, we designed and made a Mars Egg Drop Lander- our challenge was to design a lander which would land slowly, safely and not smash the egg!!

Finally, we visited the planetarium again and journeyed to the International Space Station.

Thank you to Steve- we've had an awesome experience!

Lego Workshops


All the children from Reception to Year 6 took part in Lego building workshops and governors called in during the day to see the fun!

Year 4 - Vindolanda & The Roman Army Museum


Mr Goulding joined the Year 4 class visit to Vindolanda and the Roman Army museum. 

The Year 1 class went on a walk around our local area and were joined by Foundation Governor Billy Starkey. The children took their maps and              Mr Starkey was able to show them lots of interesting places around the school.
