First Photos of the Year

We have uploaded a selection of photos from our first week to show the different things we have been learning about into the Learning in Pictures section of the website.

All our classes have had an exciting start to their new Cornerstones Projects. The curriculum newsletters will be coming home today so you can see what’s in store for the rest of the term.

Getting ready for our Leavers & Joiners Service

Our lovely wooden tree has been transported to the church. This can mean only one thing: it’s our Leavers and Joiners Service. We have been rehearsing this afternoon in preparation for tomorrow morning’s service: we look forward to welcoming you at 10.00am on Thursday. Don’t forget to bring your tissues – it’s always an emotional one!

Shakespeare does in fact rock!

Our Key Stage 2 children put on two performances of ‘Shakespeare Rocks!’ this week and both performances were amazing. The audiences thoroughly enjoyed the story of William Shakespeare’s life told through a variety of different and highly entertaining characters. Both acting and singing were of such high quality – it made everyone very proud.

As usual lots of thank yous: to the staff team for staging a wonderful production, our Friends of School for providing refreshments and to the audiences for their generous donations to cover the cost of the performance licence, scripts and props with the remaining being donated to Julia’s House Children’s Hospice.

A very sporting afternoon

We had a fantastic sports afternoon today. Everyone participated in their events to the best of their ability and all our school values were clearly shown throughout the afternoon. Well done to everyone and especially Blue Team who were awarded the Sports Cup!

Thanks go to Miss Young and Grassroots Sports who organised and ran the afternoon so smoothly. Also, to our helpers who held the finishing tape, gave out the place cards or stickers. And finally, to our Friends of School for providing much-needed ice lollies at the end of a very warm event.

Our Reception and Key Stage 1 children enjoyed an afternoon drumming session led by Joe from Rhythm Instinct to enhance their learning about African culture. Thank you to our Friends of School for providing the funding for this to happen.

We are so proud of Year 6!

The Year 6 pupils involved in this week’s SATs showed great courage and determination in completing the tests to the best of their ability. They all maintained a positive attitude throughout the week and were a great support to one another. Another example of our School values in action. We are really proud of you – you have worked so hard!
