Drastic Plastic Lesson! May 2018

Laura Fairs, Maya and Anya's mum, works as a conservationist.  She came into school to work with all the children to give them information about the plastics crisis that is facing our planet.  She showed us footage from 'The Blue Planet' which looked at the plight of sea creatures who mistakenly eat plastic and can end up dying as a result.  She gave the children a task of finding real 'food' in a box of plastic rubbish wearing swimming goggles to show how tricky it can be for animals to differentiate between the two.  She also showed t

Inspirational Assembly, May 2018

Today, we met Katharine Lowrie, who, along with her husband, followed her dream and ran the entire length of South America from Chile to Venezuela.  The couple planned the run to raise funds for nature charities and, along the way, they visited many schools to give presentations.  Katharine brought in lots of the kit which the couple needed to help them survive on the long, hard journey.  This equipment was pulled in a trailer behind them as they ran the 5,000 miles from the south to the north of the continent.  Katharine also showed us photograp

Dance Showcase, April 2018

The children who have been attending the dance club run by dance teacher Mia over the last 8 weeks, showed their fantastic dancing to an appreciative audience of parents in their Dance Showcase.  They danced in synch with no props, then with pompoms and finally with a parachute - they brought the house down!  It was a fantastic show full of enthusiasm and amazing dancing skills.

Funny Run, April 2018

Today, we held our Funny Run which had been postponed from last term - and what an event it was!  Everyone dressed up in costume and Mr Flint led the whole school in a short warm-up.  Then the KS2 children started the 1 mile circuit, closely followed by the younger children in Acorn Class.  The sunny weather meant that it was a very warm and exhausting race and everyone needed a long drink when they returned to school.  The fastest KS2 girl was Alice with a time of 9 minutes and 50 seconds and the fastest KS2 boy was Samuel with a time of 9 minutes an
