‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

The whole school took part in watching the live book read this morning and were treated to the book ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’ which was read by Father Christmas himself! Over a thousand schools had joined in the festive fun which was followed by a live quiz.

Children in Need

The children had a great time raising money for Children in Need on Friday. Everyone took part in the Joe Wicks workout in the morning – the staff found it more of a challenge than the children! In the afternoon, our ‘bring-and-buy’ sale was a bit hit. Thank you all for supporting Children in Need.

Odd Socks Day

Everyone was sporting odd socks as part of Anti-Bullying Week today. Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

Healthy Cooking

As part of our healthy school week, Year 4 made healthy wraps and had a picnic in the afternoon to enjoy them. Everyone said they were delicious!

Dogs Trust

Anthea Holloway from The Dogs Trust popped into school on Thursday to teach us all about safety around dogs. The children really enjoyed the assembly and individual class workshops.

Sew much fun!

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed designing, making and testing purses this half-term. We’ve learned how to:

  • thread a needle,
  • tie knots,
  • sew on buttons,
  • over stitch,
  • running stitch, and
  • blanket stitch.

These are our creations…

We’re Internet Legends!

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 had a special assembly from Parent Zone, where the children travelled to Interland and learned how to be Google Internet Legends:

  • Be Internet Sharp:
    • think before sharing,
    • evaluate whether a piece of information is private or not,
    • and think who will be able to see what is shared.
  • Be Internet Alert:
    • if an offer is too good to be true, is it a phishing scam?
    • think what is real and what is fake,
    • and think critically about information found online, is is true and is it from a trusted website?
  • Be Internet Secure:
    • keep personal information safe by creating unique passwords, combining characters, numbers and symbols.
  • Be Internet Kind:
    • spread positivity online,
    • speak up against and report bullying,
    • identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Be Internet Brave:
    • when witnessing something inappropriate online, speak to a trusted adult about any concerns.

Fishy Fun!

Year 4 have dived into their new topic being both scientists and artists. They investigated the anatomy of different classes of sea creatures before practising their sketching and shading skills.

National Handwriting Day

The children were keen to show off their best handwriting today as part of National Handwriting Day. Both the staff and children have been working hard to think of creative methods to develop handwriting.


Children in Need

What a day! Everyone looked amazing in their bright colours today – special mention to Mr Kelley for that shirt! Thanks to the generosity of our parents and families, the bring-n-buy sale was a great success! Our School Council, led did a brilliant job in organising the event. Be prepared for some creative Christmas gifts from the children this year.
