Y6 making us proud…again!

A huge well done to all those who took part in Wednesday evening’s football tournament. It was our first official outing in our new kit and not only did the children look the part, they played equally as well. The boys played as a team and put in some excellent performances. On behalf of Mr Amber and I, thank you children and parents for an enjoyable evening of sport in our local area!

A special thanks to King Edward for hosting and Mr Heath for organising.

Good luck to Y3/4 children in your football tournament tomorrow night!


Thorne rocks

Class 10 have been getting involved with Thorne rocks and linking it to our theme WWII. We will be placing our finished rocks as part of the memorial poppy in Thorne park on rememberance weekend.

Super Bench ballers!

I couldn’t be any prouder of these superstars who played at the bench ball tournament tonight. They have never played as a team before and they showed so much determination and enthusiasm whilst playing. They didn’t win the overall tournament but won lots of games! Well done to you all! Also a huge thank you to all parents and carers who showed heir support. It really is appreciated. I can’t wait for the re-match at Green Top next half-term.

More photos will be available on the year 3/4 classes blogs very soon.


Book hook

class 5 have found out their new book today for English. They watched part of the film of the princess and the frog and then they had a go at drawing a book cover for the story. Well done class 5 great work this afternoon. We are really proud of you all!

Conker fun!

This week in nursery the children were set a maths challenge! To create a number line collaboratively as they come into school! It was great to hear the maths language the children used to discuss where their conker should go and some children were even reading the number to their friends and parents. The problem solving and excitement was great to hear and see. Well done nursery!

The Little Red Hen

This week in nursery we explored the story of The Little Red Hen. Lots of book talk about the characters and the events of the story helped the children make predictions and retell the story to each other. Children made bread and muffins in the homecorner and sang along to the Little Red Hen Song!

Fun with phonics

This week in phonics we have had lots of nursery rhyme fun! Our challenge this week is to share our favourite nursery rhyme with our family. Don’t forget to tell Miss Carter for your reward!
