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.
All the staff from Crowle First School would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful new year. We have all had a fantastic first term - and look forward to seeing you in 2020!
As a whole school, we all shared our Christmas lunch together. It is a really special time to all come together and share a special meal. What a wonderful Christmas week we are having!!
Family Service - December 2019
Each half term we have a Family Service at Crowle Church. This is an informal service, for parents and children alike to share a special moment in God's church. Rev Morris always leads the service, and this month the "Open the Book" team (along with children from Year 3/4) portrayed the Christmas story for us. Children also read prayers of thanks to the congregation. We would like to thank all those who are involved for giving us these special moments to share as a whole school together.
Crowle Carol Service
The children of Crowle performed at the Crowle Carol Service at the local church. They displayed their commitment to learning songs, practising their musical instruments and working hard to put on a super show. They sang so clearly and beautifully - they stole the show! We are so proud of the wonderful children at Crowle, and how hard they all work in everything they do. Well done!!
Crowle Christmas Tree Competition
Each year Crowle Church have a Christmas Tree Competition. This year, the "Friends of Crowle" decided to use our School Development Plan focus of "Reading for Pleasure" to create a book themed Christmas tree. Children then decorated the stars that were positioned around the tree. I am pleased to announce that Crowle First School's tree won in the "children's category"! Hurrah! Thank you so much to all those families that donated books for the tree, and to the Friends of Crowle for creating a winning tree! Congratulations to all involved.
Rock the Baby
In December 2019 the children did a wonderful performance of "Rock the Baby" at Crowle Church. Every pupil demonstrated their confidence to perform in front of a group of people, and their commitment to learning their lines and practising their songs. We were so proud of every child - you were all wonderful!!!
Decorating the Christmas Tree
The children and staff are delighted with their new Christmas tree. The tree, along with all its decorations and a nativity scene, was as a result of the kind thoughts of Mr Cooper nominating school to be in his company's Christmas Advent Calendar. The children and all the staff would like to say a big thank you to Mr Cooper and Prologis for their generous gift. I am sure you will agree that it looks fabulous, especially as every child across the school was involved in its decoration.
Children In Need 2019
Due to the rain and subsequent flooding closing our school on Friday the 15th November, we had to postpone our fundraiser in support of Children in Need. So a week later, we came to school in our pyjamas, onsies and dressing gowns for a fun packed morning of activities.
We kick started the day with celebration assembly, it felt strange to be collecting our certificates in our nightclothes. We split into 4 mixed age groups. This was the first opportunity for the children in reception to take part in a timetable of activities with their friends from years 1 to 4. Abigail, Olivia, Lily-May and Isla-Grace (year 4 pupils) did a brilliant job of leading the groups. Over the morning the groups were involved in 4 activities; Mrs Roberts planned a selection of Pudsy themed crafts, Miss Morris taught us to sign our names, useful greetings and the song - Old MacDonald, Mr Martin set up an obstacle course in the year 3 and 4 classroom and Miss Simpson organised some team games.
We finished the morning with a whole school work out with Joe Wicks and Pudsy.
We hope that your enjoy looking at the photographs of all the fun we had. Thank you for the donations we received which at first count totaled approximately £100
