Christmas Fair 2018
Our Christmas Fair was held on December 19th. Everyone had a lot of fun enjoying many different activities, from basketball to biscuit decorating. We had Christmas stories by the fire, a raffle with some amazing prizes and we even had the chance to visit Santa in his grotto. Thank you to everyone for coming.
Art Day 2
This was our second art day of the year, and once it again it was a great success throughout the school. All year groups participated in their own way with children exploring art through a variety of different mediums. This art day saw the Year 1s create an ambitious desert island, the Year 2s make 3D thatched houses, the Year 3s use local artist Pete McKee as inspiration, the Year 4s using monochromatic painting to create landscapes and everyday objects, and the Year 5s using pastels to create desert landscapes. Once again, dedicating the entire day to art allowed the children to fully immerse themselves in their projects and produce something they were very proud of.
Book Review Competition
To encourage children to engage with reading we held a Book Review competition which the children had to complete at home. We had some excellent entries and the best book reviews were chosen as winners. The winners won a book of their choice by David Walliams, the author of the month for November 2018. Well done to everyone that entered the competition!
Congratulations to the winners!
The theme of Anti Bullying Week this year was ‘Choose Respect’. We all wore odd socks on Monday to mark the start of the week. Children had many opportunities to discuss the theme of ‘Respect’ in Art, P4C and PHSE. We then took part in a poster competition which was judged by the school council. It was great to see so many children taking part in Blue Friday – there was a real buzz throughout the school.
Y3s have been doing Road Safety training over the last few weeks. They learned skills such as: finding safe places to cross, always crossing in a straight line instead of a diagonal line and about the importance of paying attention when crossing roads. We hope they enjoy practising these new skills with their parents and carers.
