Christmas Parties

Yesterday, the children enjoyed their class Christmas parties. They played games in the hall, decorated their tables and enjoyed their party food. Father Christmas even found time to pop in and give each child a book for Christmas.


‘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!

Year 5’s Homework has been out of this world.

Mrs, Aston, Mrs Reihill and Miss Cleveland would like to say a huge thank you to all of our Year 5 parents for their help and support with the children’s Space Homework, and are looking forward to welcoming you this afternoon to share the amazing range and creativity of projects. Sadly, there won’t be any cake left by then!

Year 5’s trip to the stars

Year 5 had a visit this week from The Black Hole Planetarium. Everyone stepped into the darkness, inside the huge dome, to explore the wonders of space. We learnt all about the planets and stars and saw the constellations as they appear in the night sky. It was a wonderful experience, which the children won’t forget.

Heartwarming Haikus

Year 5 have really enjoyed thinking carefully about descriptive language and word choice to create Haiku poems about our school chicks and stick insects this week.

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.

Making Smoothies

This afternoon, Year 5 worked with Aspens staff to create fruit smoothies using their pedal power! Healthy School Week has started with a bang!

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.
