Charleigh recently took her guitar exam and passed with a distinction. It was lovely to hear that this was announced as a surprise on the open mic night she is part of each month. Charleigh is also a regular singer on the open mic nights with her brother (and occasionally other members of the family too!). A true star in the making.

Well done Charleigh

Her is a video clip of Charleigh completing part of her music exam, she also completes lessons weekly in school with our guitar teacher John Guest. Lessons will resume for all students after Easter – look out for further information or ask your crew leader if you’re interested in learning how to play the guitar!



During February these girls have taken part in a daily running challenge with their family to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer research.

The challenge was 28 miles throughout Feb.

As a family they have completed 438 miles and raised £1241! Wow!

The Buck children raised £149 on their own just on loom band orders alone!

Above is a breakdown of the challenge and some pictures of Chaz and Ron!

They have done really well! They finished their challenge with an 8mile bike ride ton Sunday – we are extremely proud of them both!!!


The Masked Reader – Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of our Masked Reader!

Coming 4th March …

Castles Project.

What a fantastic Design and Technology case study we have enjoyed in our Castle Walls expedition in year 2. The children have designed and built authentic castles with working drawbridges as you have seen in our blog posts this week. This afternoon the children participated in a silent gallery where they evaluated their friends work and then used their comments to produce thoughtful and helpful critiques.

Please enjoy this video which showcases their efforts.

Super proud of you guys!

Throughout March, as a school we are planning to walk from John o Groats to Lands end and back! That’s 1,748 miles!

If my calculations are correct as a school we only need to do 110,505 steps a day! Easy!

So charge up your fit bits and smart watches and get your walking shoes ready!

At the end of the week complete the google form that I have attached to this blog and we will record your steps. There will be weekly prizes in school for most steps in a week and all school staff will be getting involved too.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy the challenge
