NSPCC Lesson

Today the children have been taking part in a special lesson from the NSPCC. Unfortunately they were unable to come into school to deliver the lesson but we we’re able to get involved with an online video hosted by Ant and Dec and the NSPCC team. The children engaged in lots of good discussion around a number of different topics and completed several different tasks.

Year 3/4 phase assembly!

What a wonderful catch up in year 3 and 4 today. Staff gave shout outs to crew members that had gone above and beyond this week in our HOWLs of ‘working hard, being kind and getting smart’. This week a lot of discussion was around children demonstrating hard work in their assessments. Well done to Crew Mumby this week, you narrowly won this week’s Howl point challenge and spun the wheel to win DOUBLE FUNKY FRIDAY TIME!

The challenge is now on in each crew to work hard, be kind and get smart in all that you do to win a spin of the wheel!

I wonder: Discuss with your crew leaders prizes that you’d like to see on our wheel of fortune! Leave a comment below if you wish.

On Monday, Class 8 enjoyed learning about the Christingle celebration and what the different elements of a Christingle represent. We coloured and labelled pictures of a christingle and we are all looking forward to making our own in the coming weeks.

If you haven’t already, please send in your £1 contribution towards this equipment.

Hot Choc Friday!

Well done to all the boys and girls who have been practising their phonics at home in preparation for their screening tests. We all enjoyed a very special hot chocolate treat to celebrate 🙂

Our kindness calendar

In crew this week, we have introduced our kindness calendar. We spent the session discussing the different random acts of kindness and making pledges for what we are going to try and do this month.

Remember to share pictures of anything that you do at home so we can add them to the blog.


We are scientists!

This week we have been learning all about the water cycle and the technical words we can use for the different stages of the cycle. I wonder if you can tell your grown ups some of the words we have learnt and what they mean.
