Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”


The Sky's the Limit!

As part of our Outdoor Adventurous Activities (OAA) PE curriculum, pupils in Years 2, 3 and 4 set off for an exciting afternoon at Clip 'n Climb in Cambridge.  Our children were adventurous indeed; showing huge leaps in bravery as they challenged themselves throughout the session.  



The Big Burn!

As part of their Great Fire of London topic, Duckpuddle Class worked together to recreate a  cardboard version of Pudding Lane.  With the help of Royston Fire Service, Pudding Lane was set on fire!  



Den Building

In mixed-aged groups, the whole school took part in a den building challenge.  Each group worked collaboratively to erect a den/shelter using the same set of equipment.  The children were very resourceful and worked together brilliantly to achieve the goal.  Go Therfield!



The Fairy Garden - Ssssssh, you might wake them!  

Throughout the summer holidays and autumn term, we have been developing our outside forest school areas for children to enjoy during outside play and lunch times.  Take a peek below at our finished fairy garden area.  How magical!



Harvest Gift-of-Giving 2021-22

This year, we made Afternoon Tea gift packages for over 175 houses in the village.  Each gift bag contained two scones, two butter portions, two jam portions and two tea bags.  The children had so much fun making the scones, writing personalised tags, creating the packages and delivering them to the houses.  Roll on Harvest 2022!



Wellbeing in Nature - developing our outside spaces

Throughout the summer holidays, we were very busy developing additional 'awe and wonder' spaces for our children to use during their outside play and lunch times.  These have included digging sites, fairy garden, den building stations, hideaways, bird hide, treasure island sand pit, wooden train and ticket station.  Happy children make happy learners!



The Big Day In Festival

In the summer of 2021, due to Covid restrictions, we were unable to take the whole school out on our annual trip.  So, we set up 'The Big Day In Fest' and brought the fun to the school field instead!  Children had to remain in their 'class bubbles' but that did not stop our rotation of festival activities for everyone to experience across the afternoon.  Groovy!



Go Ape Adventures

In the summer of 2021, our Year 3 and 4 pupils spent a wonderful day at Go Ape.  Children challenged themselves out of their comfort zones and took part in many team building, problem solving and adventurous activities.  The treetop challenge was VERY high!
