The children enjoyed some ‘old-fashioned’ games and entertainment with Mr. Summerfield and Mr. Wattam; a keepy-up contest with Mr. Froggatt; pizzas supplied by Mrs. Birch and Mrs. Sutton; a teddy contest with Mr. Sandwith and, films before bedtime. Plenty of fun (but not much sleep) was had by all!

Andrew, the scientist, came in and amazed us all with a scientific spectacle. The children learned about materials and their properties, about sublimation and about air vortexes. The children were really engaged and could not wait to learn more in their science lessons!

A Sunny Friday Afternoon and Diggers! 

 

 

These boys decided to spend their half hour of choosing time playing creatively. How refreshing to see a plant pot of dirt and some construction vehicles inspiring so many positive social and language skills.

Brilliant Birdwatching

KS2 Gardening Club had a fantastic time recording the number of garden birds in the school grounds for the RSPB Big Schools’ Birdwatch. Using binoculars, they were lucky enough to see robins, starlings, blackbirds and blue tits.

  • In Gardening Club this week, we have been learning the names of lots of garden birds in preparation for the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Bird watch.  We then coloured in our favourite bird, making sure we matched the colour of the feathers perfectly. Beautiful work everyone!

What a fantastic Christmas Fair! We had brilliant stalls, exciting games, and even the chance to sit on Santa’s lap!

Thank you to Mrs. White for organising this excellent event, to our staff, children and governing body for their help, and to our #incrediblecommunity for their ongoing support.
