Sarah Holt is a British athlete who specializes in the hammer throw. She visited our school and lead some energetic fitness circuits with the children. She also hosted an assembly with a Q&A session to help inspire the children to participate in more sport and exercise.
We have asked the school community to help by sponsoring the children to complete the fitness circuits in order to raise money to buy more sports equipment.
Children In Need was very successful - the children looked wonderful dressed as superheroes! Thank you very much for your generosity for this worthwhile cause, we raised £900.00!
Throughout the day School Council organised a range of fundraising activities which included:
Guess the name of the bear
Design an outfit for Pudsey competition
School council decided to raise money for Comic Relief by keeping in with the theme 'making faces funny for money'. All children had the opportunity to visit the 'photo booth' and have a funny photograph taken using a prop. The children had great fun wearing hats, glasses, feather boas and using props such as inflatable guitars! We raised £287.00 for this worthwhile cause.
The whole school celebrated 'World Book Week' during the week commencing Monday 2nd March. Each year group chose a book written by the author Anthony Browne. During the week the chosen text was built into lessons where possible. The week culminated in a special assembly when children were able to share their learning with other year groups. Children also had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character on the Friday. Book Fair also visited the school during the week. The week was great fun and lots of learning took place!
In recognition of our recent 'Outstanding' judgement all children from Reception to Year 6 visited the cinema on Thursday 12th February. This was followed by a picnic lunch and a disco back at school in the afternoon. Our children as always were exceptionally well behaved and the experience was enjoyed by all! The day was a huge success and we were very proud of our children.
On Friday 6th February we participated in the ‘WEAR IT BEAT IT’ day. The British Heart Foundation held the national event in order to support vital lifesaving research.
Children were allowed to come to school wearing something red for a donation of 50p.
During the day the children participated in a fitness session with Mrs Matthews to encourage them to think about keeping a healthy heart. This fun session certainly got their hearts pumping.
All the children had a great 'onesie' day raising money for Children In Need. The children and staff looked great in their pyjamas or onesies, even Mr Grayson was spotted in a very fetching Father Christmas onesie!
Thank you very much for your kind donations, we raised almost £750. for this worthwhile cause. School council organised a toy sale to raise money which was a great success.
Healthy School's Week was a great success, with all Year groups participating. Lots of activities took place during the week, such as: designing and making healthy pizzas, making healthy soup, making healthy smoothies, making fruit kebebs. Throughout the week children also learnt about healthy eating and the importance of handwashing. Year 4 even made a video about how to wash hands thoroughly and shared it with the rest of the school!
As part of Healthy School's Week all children participated in 30 minutes of jumping or skipping activities to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Despite having an intense workout with Mrs Matthews they had lots of fun!
On March 21st we celebrated 'Sport Relief' by walking or jogging 1 mile around the school grounds.
School Council suggested children make a 20p donation to this worthwhile cause.
We raised just short of £150.00 for the charity! Thank you for your support.
It was wonderful to open our newly reburished library on Monday 3rd March. After it was badly damaged by a fire, staff have worked very hard to restore it to working order!
We were lucky to have professsional story teller, John Edgar to do the honours!
Each class thoroughly enjoyed listening to a story in the library told by John Edgar.
Children had the opportunity to interact with animals from all over the world when the animal man came to visit!
Brave children held the Chilean Rose Spider, called Miss Fluffy, and were fascinated to learn that she eats her own young!
Amongst his array of animals, there was a beautiful barn owl, a bearded dragon, a gecko, a one eyed honey bear and two snakes!
