School and Grounds
The school is set in beautiful , spacious grounds. There are two large fields, a playgound and an outdoor swimming pool. The swimming pool has just been refurbished and we are indebted to The Bedford Charity who contributed £4500 to the project.
There is also a large nature reserve, which includes a pond. We are very grateful to the working party of parents and volunteers who help keep the nature reserve under control.
A school garden was started in April 2005 at the request of the children. This has been a huge success and has provided lots of excellent learning opportunities. The children have had a wonderful time preparing the ground, planting different seeds, making a scarecrow and harvesting some of the crops.
The children planted potatoes, broad beans and runner beans, onions, lettuces, carrots, peas, tomatoes and pumpkins.We are very proud of our first harvest. The potatoes, lettuces and radishes were very tasty. We are hoping to harvest the rest very soon.
The playground is divided into two sections. There are markings on the playground to stimulate play and there is also a 'friendship bench'.
The PTFA have kindly erected 3 gazebos on the small field. These provide seating and shade.
There is a trim tram on the large field.
Pupils developing their gymnastic skills.
The school is lucky to have a large hall as it is joint provision with the village hall.

Curriculum Days
As part of our work on the local area, the whole school walked to Chellington Church. The children sketched the church and the spectacular view. They particularly enjoyed the bug hunt and finding facts from the gravestones. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were able to eat our picnic outside.
The whole school took part in an outdoor day, which the School Council helped organise. During the morning activities included orienteering, field sports events, sketching and collage work in the nature reserve, designing a totem pole, and making stencils for the paving slabs.
The afternoon included a kwik cricket competition and swimming. Everyone participated fully and a fantastic time was had by all!
We had a whole day visit from Umbanda Drumming. The day consisted of a mixture of performances and workshops. Everyone participated and had a wonderful time. Following this, in May, we had a very successful Umbanda Drumming Evening for parents, governors, pupils and staff.
Music is highly valued at Carlton Lower School. All pupils have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Pupils in year 2 and above are able to learn the recorder. We have visiting peripatetic teachers for the piano, guitar, cello and violin.
Pupils and staff dressed up for a Victorian School Day.
