Cultural Capital Experiences 2021-22

Commonwealth Games 2022 Whole School Trip

On Wednesday 3rd August 2022, using the Government's PE and Sport Grant, all our children at Everton Primary School were given the opportunity to attend the Commonwealth Games 2022 being held in Birmingham.

Reception and KS1 Austerfield Field Trip

The children in Reception and Key Stage 1 spent the day in Austerfield on a field trip. The children got to touch and hold a variety of insects and reptiles whilst learning all about them; run through a dramatised version of the Three Little Pigs and den building; and had the chance to combat the outdoor adventure assault course. 

Archaeology Day has been absolutely brilliant. The language and knowledge that the children have acquired as they have moved around each station has been wonderful. I have been particularly impressed by the children's use of language and new found knowledge to explain their findings. A big 'thank you' to Mr Scott for organising the day, the Bassetlaw Museum for bringing their personal knowledge and resources and parent helpers for their support.

Year 6 had a wonderful time with Mr Alexander and a couple of his cadets from The Elizabethan Academy. The children learnt about basic first aid, survival in the outdoors and den building. They even had a hot chocolate made on the stove!

Race for Life

All classes took part in 'Race for Life'. The children ran to support this important charity and it was lovely to have so many parents and carers join us to cheer them on and encourage them.
Thank you for all your donations to date. If you feel able to donate then please follow this link:
Let's see if we can smash last year's amazing total of £1251.25! Thank you for your support.
