Refugee Week 2017

Redwoood Tree Class taught everyone all about refugees in their learner led Collective Worship. We found out what a refugee is and the reasons people may end up as refugees. Redwood told us about some famous refugees, who have gone on to accomplish amazing things, such as Rita Ora, David and Ed Milliband and Bob Marley. We all learnt that refugees aren't really any different to us and that we all just want to feel happy and safe. To find out more about Refugee Week please click here.
Father's Day 2017

On Friday 16th June the children invited their dads in to a special collective worship. We read poems, sang songs and shared special memories. You can see a video of our collective worship here.
Bikeability Workshop Y5

Year 5 recently completed a 'Bikeability' course to make them more skilled and more confident when riding their bike on the road. The training is underpinned by national standards and is the only government-recognised cycle training scheme. We are pleased to know that our children will be safer as a direct result of the training they have received in school. More information can be found on the Bikeability website.
Inspire+ Assembly and Workshop

We recently had a visit from an Olympic swimmer, Sophie Allen, who represented Great Britain in at the Olympics and European Championships; She also competed for England at the Commonwealth Games. Sophie spoke to us all about what it means to be successful and how we could set SMART targets for ourselves in order to achieve our goals. Both Year 4 classes had a workshop with Sophie to discuss psychology in sport and the children came up with different ways they could apply these new skills to life as school, at home and in the wider community.
Grandparents Afternoon

A big thank you to all our wonderful Grandparents who came along to support us as part of our reading afternoon at the end of September.

What a wonderful turnout and what wonderful stories you shared with your grandchildren and their classmates!

Cakes and hot drinks were appreciated by all  and we even managed to recruit some of our lovely grandparents as potential volunteers who might give up their free time to come into school and read with some of our children.

Once again a big thank you to all.
