Class 4 were looking very Greek yesterday when we all dressed up for a a history workshop day on Ancient Greece. It was a great opportunity to find out more about our topic from Phillipa, an expert, and to handle some replica artefacts. We made a range of objects from a pendent decorated with Athena's owl to Greek [...]
Class 2's entrance and cloakroom has just got brighter thanks to FROGS funding, resulting in more space to display some of the children's excellent work. Thank you very much! And what's also quite handy, is we've now got a spare blue board for Class 3's room, which just so happens to have a blue theme... Brilliant! In planning for FROGS' [...]
We had another fantastic Summer fete this year. There were all the usual favourites of Splat the Rat, the raffle, Tin Can Alley and the BBQ but this year we introduced a Glastonbury feel with our very own Festival Tent that housed nail art, henna tattoos and flower creations. During the fete, the children showed their talents with an exceptional [...]

The results for the fastest boats were [...]
Last week Class 4 designed and built their own motor powered boats. There were some creative (and original!) ideas, and yesterday was the moment of truth when we raced the boats down a 3m trough... Today is the 'best design' competition...results to be announced soon... A massive thanks to all the paents who helped: Mick, Darrin, Steve, Matt, [...]
Tonight was the FROGS Christmas event and everyone was invited to watch Elf. On entry each child was presented with some jazzy Christmas headgear and offered chilli, nachos, hot dogs and chilli dogs. In the interval there were ice creams and there was even a competition for the best Festive jumper. Wow, what a great night! :-) Thank you to the [...]
Another summer, another fantastic Summer Fair! We all enjoyed the regular stalls such as The BBQ, Wine or Water, Teddy Tombola, Lucky Dip, nail art, tin-can alley, face painting and tattoos. This year we also had a new addition with the Sumo Suits and the return of an old favourite in BRUM. Some of class 4 set up their own [...]
