World Book Day - March 2018
This year's Work Book Day was our best yet! The children and staff all put in 100% effort with their costumes and the school was transformed into a fictional world, full of Oopma-Loompas, Harry Potter, Mrs Twit, Cat in the Hat...you name the character....we had them here!
To make the day extra special, we split the children in to mixed age groups (Y3-Y6) to participate in a variety of creative activities, inspired by books! Throughout the day, the children; created nonsense rhymes after reading Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose by Julia Donaldson, practised performance poetry inspired by The Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson, invented their own robots after reading Robot Stop! by Adam Bestwick, illustrated The Book with No Pictures by B.J.Novak and much, much more!
It was a pleasure to see the children working so well together, with Year 6 supporting the younger ones during the activities. There was a really creative 'buzz' around the school and the staff successfully inspired the children, introducing them to eight new texts to develop their imagination.

Construction Day February 2018
We welcomed into school dads/granddads/uncles/brothers for a construction day in Year 5. It was a fantastic turnout with over 30 adults coming in to build bridges for a toy car made out of all different kinds of materials. The teamwork, planning, preparation and advice given out by both the adults and the children was fantastic and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
A big thank you has to go to those adults who took the time out of school to come and share this special day. It was also lovely to see the children having lunch together too.
