Christmas Production photos!

Thanks to Louise Shaddick, we have some great photos of our Christmas Productions! Fancy downloading one of these for yourself? I think this link will take you to the Dropbox folder where you can download these, and many more. Louise and I (and some other parents) thought you'd like to donate to FROGS for the photos you download (50p each [...]

Solar School Totaliser…

Getting ready for our Solar School Launch night next Monday (10th November at 6pm) Class 3 have designed the Totaliser and in true Blue-Peter style, well without cardboard boxes and egg cartons, I have made it over half term! Millie, Maia, Jessica, Isabel and Rudi all designed their Totaliser with the beach at the bottom and the sky at the [...]

Our Solar Totaliser…

Class 3 had lots of ideas for our Solar Totaliser. They knew it should contain some sort of scale; that zero should be at the bottom and £15,000 should be at the top. They also had to plan how it would look; what it should be made from, what it should be decorated with and how to show the movement [...]

Great attitudes to work…

I send Well Done postcards quite often (I have a weekly reminder on my diary but I may not be that frequent!) and unlike Star of The Week nominations and Awards, they are quiet surprises that just turn up on the doorstep. Yesterday, I was really quite taken by the attitude to work shown by two children. Not only did [...]

Walking Proficiency Test…

What we learnt on the way to the village hall: Walk, scooter or cycle on the left but not in the middle or on the right. That you shouldn't walk on the zig and zags because it puts you in the middle of the road. People park their cars badly and it forces people like us to walk round them, [...]

New Beginnings…

Welcome back everyone! In assembly this morning I introduced the first of our half-termly Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) topics, entitled New Beginnings. We have several new children at school, but even those who've been here for a long time have the new experiences of a new classroom, a new teacher, a new seat, a new table partner, [...]

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 [...]
