Walk to School Week, by Mrs Walters
Date: 25th May 2018 @ 10:32am
Walk to School Week came to a successful end today with our Mini Police petitioning people at both sites to ask for St George’s Road and Claremount Road to become 20 mph zones.
Many people were surprised the roads aren’t already 20mph and everyone was happy to sign including our fabulous lollipop man and the bin men!
Community police were there to lend a hand and we got more then 200 signatures at both sites - not a bad mornings’s work!
The children who walked, rode or scooted to school also enjoyed a free breakfast served from 8.30am thanks to our catering teams at both sites.
We hope to be out with the petitions again after half term - thank you to everyone who signed today.
Help for Heroes, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 25th May 2018 @ 4:49pm
Help for Heroes
Yesterday, children in Year 1 took part in an outdoor assault course in order to raise money for the charity Help for Heroes. We were incredibly proud of how well the children did, going round the course. They ran in and out of cones, jumped over some hurdles, walked across the benches and finally army crawlled underneath some cargo netting. The children raced against one another in teams and both teams did incredibly well, especially considering the heat! A huge well done to all children for completing the course and for fundraising for a fantastic charity. Also, a big thank you to parents for supporting their children in fundraising at home.

Year 4 fun in school, by Mrs Walters
Date: 10th May 2018 @ 11:06am
Some of the children in year 4 stayed in school this week and had a great time learning about oceans, having art sessions and running an orienteering session for year 3!
The children learnt about artist Andy Goldsworthy and spent a morning planning their pictures before heading out into the centenary garden to collect materials from nature.
They researched oceans on the iPads and made pictures with scrunched up tissue or in a mosaic style.
They wrote their favourite jokes in chalk on the playground to entertain year 3 and then yesterday organised an orienteering style session with clues for some year 3 children to find letters which spelled out RESPECT.
The children said they really enjoyed themselves.
