Years 1 and 2 took part in a castle room competition. The children made their castle rooms out of recycled materials as a homework project. We were very impressed with the results. Representatives from Henry Adams came to judge and present the children with trophies and rosettes. The children were excited about their rooms and loved sharing them in class.
The children recently took part in a skipathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. This charity is literally close to many people’s heart as we probably all know someone who has suffered from heart problems.
Each child skipped for one minute and the number of skips they managed was recorded. Some children managed well over 100 skips in that time! It was very well supported and we managed to raise the magnificent total of £866.10!
Thank you to Mrs Edge for organising this very successful event.
On Monday 10th November Year 5 had an amazing morning building bridges as part of an architectural workshop. They started small, building pyramids, then beams and finally had to work as a team to construct a bridge using only wooden rods and elastic bands! The whole class agreed that it was an exciting yet educational activity.
My name is Maisie and I am in year 5. In August, I went on holiday to Devon and entered a talent contest singing ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry. I was lucky enough to win, and the prize was to come back and compete in the final in half term. I practised lots and lots and with the help Ms Wilkinson gave me, I won the final and have a lovely shiny trophy to prove it! I also won a free holiday for next year and £50. My family and Junior Choir say they are all proud of me! I wonder what will happen next?
Reception class outside area now has a new roof and bi-folding doors, allowing for much greater flexibility of use all year round
Work on our new school roof is now complete and the children have the full use of the
playground once again. We are continuing to update and improve the school.
