Our topic this half term is 'Music.'! If you have any books or resources that you think may be useful, please send them in. Also please look at the topic web on the notice board outside the Nursery to see what great activities we will be doing.
Just a reminder to continue to use the 'Wow Wall' the information you tell us about your child allows us to inform our assessments.
A busy term ahead
This term is full of key events in every school such as SATs in Year 2 and Year 6 but there are key assessments taking place in every year group so good attendance and punctuality are essential. Please see the diary dates below and your child’s phase group newsletter for our latest list of key dates for you diary.
Everyone should now have received their copy of our Ofsted report. If you haven’t received your copy please call at the school office. The report is due to be available on the Ofsted website for public viewing from next Monda
Thank you to all those parents and families who have supported events this half term. It is sometimes frustrating that three key events are held so closely to each other but we don't want to miss out on sharing in the nationwide celebrations of Maths, books and Science in schools, as well as enjoying the fun of Red Nose Day and raising almost £300.
It was also lovely to see so many of our Foundation Stage families joining their children in egg decorating and well done to all our children who have produced some fantastic creations this year.
Yesterday afternoon the children in Reception had a fantastic trip to Seven Stories. We have been learning about Julia Donaldson and read lots of her books so we decided to go and see the exhibition she has on at Seven stories. We listened to some of her stories, dressed up as characters from her books and....met The Gruffalo! He was very big! Afterwards we went down to the basement and took part in a lovely workshop, where we made finger puppets, played musical instruments and used small nets to fish for sea creatures! Have a look through the photographs to see all the fun we had.[gallery oRead More »
The children in Reception have had a brilliant day dressed as Scientists for Science day and Comic Relief. We have had great fun conducting different experiments. We put Mentos mints into a cola bottle and watched as it shot out of the bottle all over the grass! It made some of us jump! We made our Dinosaur volcano erupt with green food colouring and also did a melting experiment. Half of the class had a piece of milk chocolate and half the class had a piece of white chocolate, we had to let the chocolate melt on our tongues and not chew it (this was very hard!) and then put our hand up oncRead More »
World Maths Day was on the 6th March and in school we celebrated in style! All of the children had their SUMDOG logins and our 5 top scorers received certificates in assembly today. Well done to Damien, Jack Joe, Jack, Harry and John. What a great achievement for our school. The SUMDOG logins still work now that the event has finished and children can log in at www.sumdog.com
On the day of World Maths day, every class explored a maths story and got involved in literacy and maths activities all morning linked to the book. During the afternoon, many parents c
Yesterday the children in Reception came to school dressed as Pirates for a Pirate Party! We have been busy all week making treasure maps, writing messages in bottles, counting gold coins, making Pirate hats and many other things so we thought we would round the week off with a party! We had a Pirate disco, played musical Pirates and we even had to walk the plank at the end! Take a look through the photographs to see if you can spot your little Pirate.
Thank you to all parents who came to see their child’s teacher this week. The attendance at such evenings has really increased over the last few years and this really helps to ensure parents are kept informed and provides the opportunity for information to be shared about home as well as school.
Thank you also for the responses to our school meals survey. The school council will be sharing these with the local authority’s catering services managers and once we get their responses we will share all the information with you. We were very grateful fo
Yesterday we had a visit from a mad scientist! Kinetic Katie visited the whole school to show us some amazing science. We all enjoyed the show and learnt a lot about the athletes in the Olympics and how scientists can help them perform better. It was a really fun afternoon. Have a look at what we were doing below.
