Alice

 

An enormous well done to all the children who took part in this year’s production of Alice. All the cast performed brilliantly, they all worked extremely hard to learn their lines and songs. The choir sounded wonderful throughout the performances and the back stage crew helped to organise the show. Last but not least, a big thank you to the audiences who joined in with the performances as well. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part and we are all very proud of them.

Key Stage 2 Sports Day Friday 24th June 2016

Thank you to all of the children for a brilliant sports day at the Berry Hill Park Athletics Track.

Congratulations to this year’s winners…green team!

The results were as follows:

  1. Green Team
  2. Blue Team

Well done Green Team, the Key Stage 2 Sports Day trophy will be wearing the green ribbons until we do it all again next year! J

Thank you to all of the spectators who came along to support the children, it was great to see so many of you there!

A BIG thank you to our volunteers who gave up their own time to help run the event; Mr Ian Clark, Mrs Sutcliffe, Mrs Hardy-Griffiths, Mrs Smith’s two daughters, Mrs Ellis and Mrs White.

Finally, well done to Mrs Kendall for organising another fantastic Sports Day.

Thank you for your support.

As part of World Book Day, we held a competition where the children had to design a new book mark for their year group. We had some fantastic entries. We would like to thank school council for deciding the winners. A big well done to all of our winners:

Year 3 – Oliver

Year 4 – Isla

Year 5 – Evie

Year 6 – Rebecca

Keep checking for any more competitions.

After a relaxing Easter break, we are raring to go in Year 5! We are kicking off the Summer term with our ‘Meet the Greeks’ topic where we will be learning all about Ancient Greece and its mythical history. We will also be enjoying our topic work within our English lessons as we follow the Adventures of Odysseus and his encounters with the humanoid giant - Cyclopes - and the enchanting Circa amongst many other unusual mythical creatures. 

 

Towards the end of the Summer term, we will be giving Richard Branson a run for his money as we take part in our Enterprise project. We will be planning, creating and selling to raise money for a cause of our choice.

Sports Relief 2016

 

A big congratulations to all the children who helped raise money for sports relief this year. Sports Relief is part of the Comic Relief Charity and raises money for worthy causes both within and outside of the UK.

For our fundraising activities we decided to do a sponsored mile. The children could run or walk for a mile around the school’s playground. Also, we had a sporty dress up day where all the children looked fantastic.

 

This year we raised an amazing £2223.50!

 

We would like to thank everyone for your continued support. We couldn’t have done it without you.

What a sporty bunch! We have helped to raise money for sports relief.

Spring 2016

The Spring term sees Year 5 blasting off to start their Space topic, "Out of this World!".  We'll be looking at the Earth in Space and the forces which keep us in place.  We will also be studying hydraulics and pneumatics by making space vehicles.  Wish us luck!

Our Class Targets

Every half term every class decides upon a target. They have to work together to achieve their target 100 times. If they complete this they will have a reward afternoon. The reward is also decided by the class.

 

Mr Carter's class target: To show manners by not speaking when others are talking.

Mrs Gibson's class target: To be assertive. 

 

Good luck to both classes smiley

Autumn 2015

We're off to a great start with our 'Going Underground' mining topic.  Thank you so much for supporting your children to research and represent their local heritage so creatively!

Festive Fun! Christmas Jumper Day!

 

Year 5

Take a Bow!

The children of Key Stage 2 have been busy singing songs, making costumes and learning lines ready for our Christmas production the ‘Children of the World’. This year, the children have been learning about Christmas traditions from all across the world! We were taken on a journey of Christmas by some very interesting angels.

 

Have a look through our pictures to see if you can guess which country we were!
