Reception and nursery health week

Tuesday, 3 July 2018

 

Today the Reception and Nursery children had the chance to try out two different types of exercise. In the morning Mrs Haines introduced the children to dance classes.

The afternoon was filled with a Kung Fu and boxing session led by Mr and Mrs Checkley.

 

 Many thanks to these parents for giving up their time to help support our Health Week in the EYFS. 

Tomorrow we will be talking all about teeth.

Wellbeing week starts!

Monday, 18 June 2018

All the children and as many staff as possible, took to the field for a 15 minute walk to start the day. This was the first day of our wellbeing week and it looks like they all enjoyed the fresh air, sunshine and chat! Lets hope the weather stays nice for the rest of the week.

Forest School

Monday, 21 May 2018

 

Nursery had a lovely time last week outside by a forest fire. Miss Mary a fully trained forest school teacher made sure that all was safe and secure.

The children were able to whittle sticks to push a marshmallow on to, sing some campfire songs and enjoy a sizzling hot suasage.

The weather was perfect too, not too hot!

Nursery’s Egg Hunt

Thursday, 19 April 2018

“The children took part in an Easter Egg Hunt in nursery today. They were all very excited however it was good to see how their relationships are developing and how they are learning to share and support each other.

They worked together to make sure that everyone found an egg. They were then very patient and waited until they were all found before helping to count the eggs and distribute them fairly.”

Trip to the Gurdwara

Thursday, 22 March 2018

Year two enjoyed their visit to the Gurdwara in Coventry. We were met by Mr Dhaliwal who took us all round the building. The children were able to hear all about the Sikh religion, see the prayer hall with the holy book and the Langar where warm food is available daily. All the children were given a bag of crisps and a drink – the offering of food is very much a part of the Sikh religion.

Langar is the term used in Sikhism for the community kitchen in a Gurdwara where a free meal is served to all the visitors.  Everything we saw was interesting and very beautiful.

Year 5 Art Week

Tuesday, 20 March 2018

Thank you again to parents who came in for the Art afternoon.

Year 5 children began painting their moonscapes.

Parents were a great help and the children were happy to let them work hard on their sculptures (I think they worked harder than the children!).

Year 1 Assembly

Friday, 16 March 2018

Year 1 performed their first class assembly in front of a very big audience of proud parents and carers.

They all spoke well and gave us lots of information about their visit to the post office.

The children spent lots of time building and decorating their houses, its always a topic that the children really enjoy.

 

Thank you to all the family members that were able to attend, it always makes such a difference.

Year 5 Assembly

Monday, 5 March 2018

The assembly was scripted by class teacher Mr Trew and was all about Ancient Greece, the class topic for the term.

It featured a famous story from Ancient Greece once thought to be a myth, the battle of Troy, between the Trojans and the Athenians.  It was a war that went on for 10 years between King Menelaus (The Greeks) and King Priam (The Trojans) and somewhere into the mix – care of Mr Trew’s script Cristiano Ronaldo kept popping up.

There is evidence that Troy was a real place and that it was involved in wars…sadly some of it is lost beneath the waves!
