The day started with a wonderful, moving assembly performed by our Year 6 children to commemorate Remembrance Day. During the day pupils took part in many different activities which taught them what life would have been like during the Great War, while also learning about the significance of the day.
Class 3 produced some excellent pieces of work on remembrance day. They enjoyed writing their own poems and making their own poppy wreaths and biscuits.
Class 5 have enjoyed a range of activities for Armistice Day. They have written some superb emotive letters from soldiers, made trench cake and completed a range of art activities.
Reception had a lovely time celebrating Remembrance day. We pretended to be soldiers marching, we used pastels to create pictures of Flanders field and we designed medals for people we thought deserved them.
Children in Early Years had a fantastic time for Pirate Day. They went on a treasure hunt, walked the plank and even had a swim in the paddling pool.
Two of our young computer whizzes head off to the DIGIs awards. Both had created a beautiful piece of art using iPads.
A wonderful afternoon was had by all who attended our Father's Day celebration on Friday 15th June.
We had board games, sports and doughnuts!
Year 5 and 6 were really lucky on Wednesday 6th June , to have an assembly ran by the schools PCSO Trudie. They also took part in a workshop in the classrooms looking at personal safety, criminal responsibility and the consequences of their actions as they get older. At the end of the workshop the children had the chance to ask any questions.
Year 1 were taken back in time and visited a Victorian school where they were taught by a Victorian teacher, in a Victorian classroom, whilst wearing Victorian clothes. They were given a short Maths and English lesson and were even required to write on a slate board. The children were then able to explore the Victorian town and experience what life was like for a Victorian child.
On Friday 18th May we celebrated the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.
To mark this very special occasion, the children took part in lots of activities, from afternoon tea parties to art activities looking at British Values. In addition to this, all children took part in a competition to design a commemorative plate. The winners from each class will be given the opportunity to turn their design into a real commemorative plate which will then be displayed in school!
Here are a few photos from the day.
On Thursday 3rd May the Animal Man came into school. We had a fantastic time looking at lots of different animals and learning about their diet, habitat and how to classify them with in the animal kingdom.
To help raise awareness of autism we all wore our brightest, silliest socks.
