Autumn Fayre - Enterprise

posted 26 Sept 2016, 03:17 by Mrs Bradwell   [ updated 26 Sept 2016, 03:17 ]

Friday 23rd September saw our first Autumn Fayre. All the children in school have spent the last 3 weeks developing Enterprise products that were on sale last Friday. 

Potty about Pots? Y3 designed and hand-painted individual plant pots. There was a hug array of creativity on show, ranging from watermelons to rabbits!

Are you at one with nature? Y4 created outstanding outdoor artwork from a variety of natural materials. Their stunning designs were beautifully framed for parents to purchase and added extras of bookmarks were also available.

Fancy a lick? Y5 tempted family and friends with a delicious array of chocolate products. Lollies, truffles, stirrers and tiffin looked fabulous in their packaging...although they didn't stay there for very long after they were purchased!

Roll-up Roll-up! Y6 developed their own games and had a roaring trade. Hook-a-duck, tombola, penalty shoot out, coin roll, bottle flip and splat-the-teacher all had lots of customers. 

Chocolate Trip

What a superb way to start the year...a trip to see the story of chocolate...and taste a few samples!! Y5 had an amazing day to the York Chocolate Story on Tuesday 20th. The trip combined Y5's current Enterprise focus with their Autumn topic of the Mayan civilization.

The children in Y5 have been designing their own chocolate delights, including flavourings, shapes and sizes, packaging and a Mayan product name. These were all on sale last week at the Autumn Fayre to raise money for Monifque and Alice and Dominic. 

Book Fair

Image result for book fairWe had the travelling book fair in school last week and we sold lots of books to keen readers. Well done everyone who came to purchase a new book.

Reading is such an important part of the curriculum and it is essential that children read regularly at home. It has been great to see a positive start to the children's reading records this academic year and we hope that all children will regularly read at home. 

Welcome to 2016 - 2017!!

Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a round of Frisbee Golf for their reading reward this afternoon.

Well done to all the children across school who have been regularly reading at home and showing their reading records this year! 

The Oakes - Y4

posted 24 Jun 2016, 08:20 by Mrs Stewart

Year 4 have just returned from a fun-filled three days at The Oakes Holiday Centre in Sheffield. 

The children chose from a range of activities which included rafting, zorbing, crafts, ropes, remote controlled cars, mini mudder and archery

In between activities, they participated in team games, had free time and went along to meetings where they found out more about the Christian faith. 

We had fantastic weather whilst we were there which also allowed us to have fun on the water slide

The children are looking forward to telling parents more about the holiday during our joint Year 4 assembly on Wednesday 6th July.

Year 3 Summer Camp

posted 20 Jun 2016, 08:41 by Mrs Bell   [ updated 20 Jun 2016, 08:42 ]

Despite the rain, Year 3 had a fantastic time last week on their residential! The children spent the day down at Underbank reservoir taking part in a variety of outdoor activities. They took part in orienteering, bush craft, climbing, zip line and archery. It was wonderful to see many of the children supporting and nurturing each other during the day. 

After that, the children returned back to school to camp in tents for the evening. There was a buzz of excitement as the children arrived back at school and saw their tent for the first time. They were very eager to take a closer look inside! Sadly, the bat hunt had to be cancelled due to the rain. Fortunately, the children were able to take part in the evenings activities in the hall. These consisted of: games, zumba, singing and enjoying a delicious hot chocolate with marshmallows.  

On the Friday, the children spent the day taking part in other outdoor activities which included: golf frisbee, making bird feeders and making parachutes

The children thoroughly enjoyed the residential, as did the staff! 



Eco Warriors

posted 3 Jun 2016, 06:57 by Mrs Bell   [ updated 3 Jun 2016, 06:57 ]

At the beginning of the term, Mrs Bell told the children about a new and exciting award which the school is going to be working towards...the Eco School Award!

As a school, we look after our school environment and are constantly finding ways to try to improve it for our wildlife and for us. However, there is much more that we can do! A team of 'Eco Warriors' have been chosen to help lead this project. One child from each class was chosen and since then they have been hammering away with making some improvements. 

Eco Warriors

Our first project is to improve the environment for birds and bats. We have been building bird and bat boxes which will then be place in trees around school. The task was rather tricky and required some help from Mrs Stewart, Mrs Haywood and Mr Horner. Hopefully, over the coming years we will see some new residents in and around school!

Year 6 London Residential!

posted 25 May 2016, 09:21 by Mrs Riley

We had a brilliant time on our recent residential to London. It was fantastic to see all the sites whilst touring on the coach, stopping off in Covent Garden to watch some street theatre and watching The Lion King on stage. Despite being tired the next day, we had fun exploring HMS Belfast and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
