Whole School News

As we progress throughout the school year, we will add photos of whole school events to this page. Individual class photographs and news can be found on their class page.

Spring Term 2018

TT Rockstars:  At the beginning of February all year groups enjoyed a morning off our usual time table to explore multiplication.   The morning saw the children and teachers dressing as rockstars to link with the launch of Times Tables Rockstars in Key Stage 1 and 2.  The children work in mixed age groups to complete 3 workshops that included learning the tables and solving multiplication based problems.  Of course the children in reception did not want to miss out on all the fun so they spent the morning focusing on number.  Everyone looked great and worked hard.  Ask your child about their rockstars account - we would like children in years 1 to 4 to play for 5 mins a day at home. 

Chinese New Year: In February, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 spent two days celebrating Chinese New Year. We read the story about the Great Race and how the Zodiac calendar was created and then we completed various craft activities based on Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dog! We made paper dragons and went on a dragon dance around the playground. We learnt how to use chop stick and how to write the numerals to 10 in Chinese. We loved creating our sparkly lanterns and our origami dogs too!

World Book Day: We were incredibly lucky this year to celebrate World Book Day on two different days (all because of the snow!). On the first day, we all brought in our favourite books and shared them with our class and then we had special visitors to read us stories. Year 3 and 4 learnt how to do story massage and designed their own reading rivers. On the second afternoon, we had a visit from local author, Caroline Green, and she shared some of her wonderful stories with us and demonstrated how she draws her illustrations. We loved getting a signed book from Caroline!

Sports Relief: On Wednesday 14th March, we raised money for Sports Relief by coming to school dressed in our sports outfits and spending the afternoon completing sports activities, designed and ran by Year 4 pupils.
