Nearly back to school…

Went in to school today and for the third time this summer I tried to clear the pile of paperwork that certainly went back just before January.  And I'm normally so organised! Mrs Mortimer was in.  Obviously an early start for her as she'd done a lot of work in the room and had just tidied the veg patch, probably [...]

Mr Thomas claims he is not completely wet…

After having a water fight with 19 very enthusiastic year 6s Mr Thomas initially claimed he had been wetter last year... 1v19 - He survived but got a little damp However we think photographic evidence supports his later admission that there wasn't a single square millimetre of him that wasn't completely soaked! Well done year 6 - a very [...]

Star of The Week…

Well done Beau Dooley! “He has worked so hard at his maths and now loves grid method! He was very kind and supportive to Molly S. in maths this week and he always tries his best in lessons.” “He is really kind, he is remarkable at art and a kind friend.” “He is awesome at maths and thought of some great [...]

Code Club…

We've started a Code Club! You'll find lots of software out there that gives children the ability to play about with coding and programming - one of the better ones (apart from Kodu... which is possibly slightly more complicated) is Scratch. Through Code Club (.org.uk) we found Chris who offered his services to help run a club at school using [...]

Year 6 Life Skills…

Year 6 are learning lots about things that are important and could save lives! Learning about how to stay safe on our beaches... Got to say that this was a speciality for our kids! This was the Dogs Trust's part where we discussed how to make sure we were safe. Of course, after all out work on dog poo we [...]

Sean’s Day…

It's another Sean's Day! Thanks very much for bringing in any donations for Challenge Ministry Swaziland.  Some of you have brought in some cash (we'll let you know how much as soon as we've counted it up) and some of you have brought in specific items for the box in our hallway.  Mrs Mortimer has recently requested that we consider [...]

Poo Paragraphs…

Year 5 have tried hard to write a single paragraph for their information leaflet about dog poo. Dog poo is a huge problem.  It's a problem because dog owners, in general, allow their dogs to poo in our community and they don't pick it up or dispose of it properly.  It ends up being everywhere! Not disposing it in an [...]

School photos…

Lots of beautifying, hair brushing, collar straightening - you won't believe how seriously some of our children take this - quite funny indeed!  Equally some of the comments from those who just can't be bothered (their words) about doing themselves up! "She called me 'trouble,'" said one boy. "Oh no, I had to hug my sister,"  was one of the [...]

Year 5 on Lundy…

We'll have to caption the photos and write something here... but I thought you'd like to see them with the children before they leave for school tomorrow morning! (You're welcome... they were a lovely bunch.) Night, Mr T. Blog update-  Year 5 rushed into class 4 today full of stories about their adventures on Lundy, it sounds like all the [...]

Getting ready for Lundy…

We've very nearly everything boxed up and ready for loading on the ferry on Tuesday morning.  Met James this afternoon and he was looking forward to it too... Wonder how excited the kids will be tomorrow? Crossing my fingers that the weather is slightly cooler than the weekend but certainly drier than what the Met Office is forecasting!  [...]
