Year 6 Leavers Party

This year’s leaver’s party, went outside.  The Year 6’s had decided they wanted an adults V children Kick Runders match.  And so it was organised.  A food list was drawn up, thank you to everyone for providing a banquet fit for a king.  Picnic blankets and chairs were set up in the early evening sun ready for the epic match.  The 3 leg match was closely fought by all.  But the Year 6’s were victorious. 

After some food.  A lot of food.  Each of the children received a personalised award from Miss Jenkin and Miss Prentice, laughs and dances were had. 

Well done to all the Year 6’s on a great year. We have had our ups and downs, but we have never stopped laughing and having fun.



  Pirates of the Curry Bean

 Class 4 put on a hilarious production of Pirates of the Curry Bean.  It was truly enjoyed by everyone, which included a cameo role from Miss J. The children did an excellent performance and thoroughly enjoyed the shows.  It has been lovely to have watched the children grow in confidence over this year to have stop up on stage and performed as they did.  Class 4 have two very proud teachers.



 Year 5 Sports Festival

 The Year 5’s spent the afternoon at Colfox being taught by some of their student’s different games of rounders.  The children were mixed into teams with other local primary schools which gives them a great opportunity to meet peers that they will be with when they move to secondary school.

Class Residential to Southampton

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, Class 4 arrived in Southampton for our overnight city stay.  It was truly a non-stop, fun- packed two days, where we literally did not stop for breath. The first day was spent at the Titanic Exhibition where we completed our learning on the topic of Titanic.  It was a very hot day and all the children did brilliantly keeping focused while learning on one of the hottest days of the year.  From the museum it was a short walk to be met at the Premier Inn, who looked after us fantastically, to put our bags down before heading out to dinner at the Gourmet Burger Company for a truly delicious meal.  From there, it was straight to The Mayflower Theatre to watch Matilda.  We then all finally fell into bed, exhausted, at 11pm.  The next morning we were up at 6.45am raring to go to Go-Ape after a very hearty breakfast.  Here we spent the day team building and swinging from trees.  After two days of full-on, non-stop activities, we think today may be a little quiet in Class 4.    All the photos will be available on the schools website over the next few days.

Thank you to Miss J, Miss Prentice, Mr White and Mrs Norman for accompanying the children.
