Year 3 greatly enjoyed their Roman Day on 30th March. Children arrived to school wearing superb costumes (thank you parents) and they all looked fantastic. We started the day by making and painting shields, followed by learning the roman numerals. In the afternoon the children went to battle and then made laurel wreaths. All staff and children had an excellent day and it was a wonderful way to end this topic. Please click on the photo to see more pictures.
Today The Musical Theatre group performed to the whole school in assembly. They were brilliant and really enjoyed performing in front of such a large audience. I would like to thank them for all their hard work this term and hope to have made some stars of the future.
The Key Stage 1 classes were invited to enter the Hobby Craft Easter Bonnet competition. Mrs Newington-Growns kindly delivered the kits and the children in each class set to designing and creating their masterpieces with a range of craft accessories. All the bonnets looked amazing and were sent off to Hobby Craft where they were displayed and the public could vote on the winning entry. We look forward to hearing the results.

On Tuesday 28th March at 10am, Joe Wicks, Fitness Coach led a nationwide campaign to get children across all primary schools in the U.K to get active! We decided we wanted to be a part of this as we know that being healthy and exercising supports our well being.
He streamed his video live on You Tube and the Foundation and year 1 classes went into the hall for their fitness session, joining other schools all across the country.
Just before lunch, 4GW also took part in the session and really enjoyed it.
All the children were very hot and sweaty by the end of their 20 minute class but certainly seemed to have fun!
This term EYFS have looked at “People Who Help Us”. We have been very lucky as they have gone on a trip to the Post Office where they posted a letter home that they had written when looking at Postal Workers. They had a visit from Firefighter Archie who talked about his job and how we should never play with matches. Inspector Ames and PC Ames also came to talk about their roles as Police Officers and also brought their car which the children were able to sit in. We also looked at dentists and doctors. The children have loved dressing up as all the people in our community.
We would especially like to thank Firefighter Archie and Amelie’s parents, PC and Inspector Ames and of course PC Isaac for their visit. The children thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thank you to everyone that took part and donated to our Red Nose Day event. All the children looked fabulous in their red tops. We have raised a total of £399.40 for Comic Relief.
