whole_schoolWe currently run four classes, but sometimes we work together as a whole school, or in our house groups, Dahl, Inkpen, McKee and Rowling.

Children can earn house gems for their house, by working hard, good manners and for demonstrating our school values. Each week we award the House cup to the house earning the most gems that week.

Break the Rules for Comic Relief!

Before Comic Relief day we brought in lots of ‘copper’ coins so that we could make a ‘red nose’. We brought in so many coins that we were allowed to ‘break the rules’ on Comic Relief day. The rules we could break were- having crazy hair, wearing face paint, not wearing school trousers or skirt, not wearing school shoes or wearing a red top.

We worked in our ‘house groups’ to make a ‘red nose’ using the copper coins-it was great fun!

Look at all the ‘noses’ we made

Year 6 counted the money.

We raised a fantastic  £109   for Comic Relief.

Well done everyone!

Remembrance Day

We learnt about why we have remembrance day, why we wear poppies and about the end of world war one a hundred years ago.

Class Stream made a poppy wreath. Here it is next to the sheep visiting us from the diocese as part of the ‘ Good Shepherd Project’.

            

We made poppies. We made a book about special times we can remember and played a game where we had to remember different objects associated with the Remembrance day.

Class River wrote letters to the children who had helped during world war one.

Class Estuary painted pictures of the war and wrote poems. They made purple poppies which are used to remember animals that died in the war.

 

Class Ocean did some performance poetry written by poets during world war one and then wrote their own sonnets.

World Book Day

We had a great time celebrating World Book Day. Everyone made a fantastic effort dressing up as their favourite book character. In all Classes we enjoyed exploring reading in different ways; creating character profiles and new book covers. Class Stream had a fun morning exploring the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’  through lots of different activities.
