Saxon wow day!

Wednesday 16 November 2016
The children in Oak Class enjoyed a wonderful Saxon wow day. During the day they dressed up as Saxons; developed their archaeology skills; explored textiles; learned about weapons and enacted a battle. For more pictures of the day, please visit the gallery.




We will remember them

Friday 11 November 2016
Today, at 11 o'clock, the children and staff stopped to remember all those who have died in wars around the world. Eleven chimes were sounded, the poem "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon was recited and everyone stood in a circle for a period of silence.

 




Plans afoot in our nature reserve

Wednesday 2 November 2016
At the last Nature Reserve Group meeting, the representatives from each class decided that the following meeting should take place in the nature reserve itself so that they can make plans for the academic year. The children had lots of ideas for the reserve including re-development of the "learning lounge" area and the creation of a brand new "butterfly garden". Watch this space as the children may soon be asking for some help from parents and members of the local community!




Our harvest festival

Tuesday 18 October 2016
Our harvest festival took place today at St Mary's Church. During the service, the children in Maple Class performed a "Little Red Hen" rap, the children in Chestnut Class sang "Big Red Combine Harvester", Willow Class read some of their harvest poetry and the children in Oak Class shared their harvest anagrams and enlightened us as to who does all the work at harvest time! Thank you to all of the parents and carers for the generous donations of food that will be taken to the Nomad Trust, a charity for the homeless.




People who help us

Tuesday 11 October 2016
The children in Chestnut Class enjoyed a brilliant "wow day". They spent the day learning about people who help us. Some children dressed up as doctors and nurses, some as fire-fighters and police officers and others as teachers. During the day, they explored a real police van and listened to its siren, they learned about first aid and how to sign using British Sign Language.




Beautiful stones

Monday 3 October 2016
The new children in our school laid a special stone on our cairn today. Some of the stones had been decorated whilst others had been chosen for their natural beauty. Some were found on the beach whilst others were collected from the garden. All of them were special and were laid on our cairn to represent a sense of belonging to the school.




Unstoppable!

Tuesday 27 September 2016
Children in years 5 and 6 represented the school in the JB's Sports inter-school league football tournament. Our team won all of their matches and ran out winners of the tournament overall. This qualifies them for a place in the regional finals!

Oak Class have been learning about how land use has changed in the local area and on Thursday they visited Woodhall Spa Sand and Gravel to find out about it first hand. Please visit the picture galleries to see more photographs.
