Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) Sports Day
Monday 3rd July 2017
What a wonderful sports day we had! J.
Thank you so much to all of the spectators who came along to watch the children. Your attendance and encouragement was much appreciated by all of the children.
A big thank you also goes to our year 6 children who helped to run the activities. They did a great job and we couldn’t have ran the event without them.
Finally well done to all of the year 1 and 2 children for their effort and behaviour all afternoon. You did a great job! J.
Congratulations to all of the teams and especially to those who went home with the bronze, silver and gold certificates!
Well done everyone!

Mike Bargh and Warren the Rabbit from Mansfield 103FM came to school just before the Easter holidays to interview five children - Evie, Poppy, Kyra, Connor, Danny. They described a secret item, which are clues to a competition that will be posed to listeners of the Breakfast Show week starting 12th June. Keep listening to Mansfield 103FM for the fantastic competition.
Used printer cartridge recycling
As part of our work towards our Eco-Schools award we are committed to reducing waste and recycling more, both in school and in our homes. The Eco-Committee has been looking at ways to do this and have decided to work with a company called ‘Empties Please’. They collect and recycle used ink and toner cartridges and will donate any money raised back to us.
It’s very simple. All we have to do is collect used ink cartridges and toner cartridges and put them into the collection bin, in one of the bags provided, which is situated in the reception area in school. ‘Empties Please’ will collect the bin when it is full and then donate the money raised back to school with a certificate to display showing how much we have raised through our recycling. We may also qualify for their Green Rewards scheme if we collect enough. You can collect cartridges from absolutely anywhere – school, work, home, clubs, friends and family. The more we can collect the better and as it takes up to 1000 years for a printer cartridge to decompose it is an environmentally friendly way for you to dispose of your printer cartridges whilst helping us at the same time!
Toners accepted: original branded Brother, Cannon, Dell and Epson toner cartridges
Ink cartridges accepted: original branded Cannon, HP, Lexmark and Samsung ink cartridges
Please make sure you put all cartridges in one of the bags provided before placing in the collection bin.
Thank you for your help.
A gigantic thank you to everyone who bought in pennies for our Penny Mile! We raised a very impressive £341.72!
Throughout this half term year one children will continue with their topic ‘Good to be Me’. Within the topic children celebrate their strengths, take responsibilities and recognise the qualities of being a good friend. During Art lessons, the children are enjoying painting and sketching self-portraits for our class gallery. We will be learning about the importance of hygiene: following instructions for washing hands and looking at the work of Florence Nightingale. Within Geography the children will begin to find were they live using atlases and globes and create their own maps of our school environment. During Science, the children learn to label parts of the body and identify their five senses. In addition, children learn about seasonal changes and observe and name the trees around school.
We have had a fantastic Roald Dahl Day and look forward to sharing a selection of our photographs on the school website.
What a Dahlicious day!
Well what an exciting few days we have had at school! The children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. All the children looked fantastic in their costumes dressed as a character from their favourite Roald Dahl book.
Photographs coming soon!
