As part of their homework project, Year 4 had to create a Viking Longboat using any materials of their choice. Mrs Shedden and Mrs Whiteley were overwhelmed with the effort that the children (and their parents) had put into these creations. They are now displayed around school for the rest of the children to enjoy.
Today the whole school had special visitors into their assembly, author Jess Hiles and her mum Jo Allmond. Jess’ books all follow a similar theme ‘It’s ok to be different’. They followed up the assembly with a question and answer session with years 4, 5 and 6.
Dear parents and carers,
Thank you so much for once again supporting our school book fair! In total, the school sold £1165 worth of books which means that we will be given £700 worth of FREE books for your children to enjoy! As a school we are so grateful for such overwhelming support…happy reading!
As part of our Anglo Saxon topic we have used the forest school area to gather natural materials and make our own Anglo Saxon art work. We based our work on Anglo Saxon jewellery.
We had a great time at the church performing our Easter play. The children really enjoyed themselves singing the songs and retelling the Easter story. Here are a couple of pictures of us performing.
Today we have had a great french horn lesson. We have been practcing the notes E and F and been playing some songs that include these notes. We talked about musical terms and how the origin of a lot of musical terminology is Italian.
We have had a great day in class today celebrating World Book Day!
The children all looked great in their costumes and we loved hearing all about their favourite book characters.
We hope you look forward to spending your World Book Day £1 vouchers!
The Eco Council’s current topic is Health and Well-Being.
During today’s Eco Council meeting we were joined by Louise, School Canteen Nutritionist. The children participated in an Eatwell Guide workshop. By the end of the session the children were able to use the Eatwell Guide to help them to understand how to get a balance of healthier and more sustainable food.
Here are photos of children in years 2 – 6 participating in the Eatwell workshop.
What is Bikeability?
Bikeability is a national standard cycle training programme designed to give cyclists the skills and confidence to cycle safely, in modern road conditions.
Congratulations to the children in year’s 3 and 4 that took part in Bikeability over the last two weeks. They have successfully completed Level 1. Well done!
Here you can see some photos of the children taking part.
Why not start cycling together?
Riding bikes is a great family activity and you can help
support your child with their Bikeability training at the same time.
Choose a quiet place away from traffic –
the park is perfect, and start by practicing looking back over your shoulder and giving hand
signals whilst maintaining control of the bike. You could also help by showing them how to select the correct gear and use the brakes with control. Simply getting out and about on 2 wheels will improve your child’s confidence.
