Year 1

The children have had lots of fun this week: counting dinosaurs; making up number sentences and using the dinosaurs to help find the answer;  designing and building lego models and creating labels for them; writing story books in the writing area; table top graffiti and labelling pictures, plus much more! The children are in the   process of creating a dinosaur museum after an exciting letter was received from a palaeontologist in America about a delivery of dinosaur fossils.

Meet the teacher Evening

It was wonderful to have such a good turn-out for the ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening and to have your feedback on how valuable you find these presentations. We will ensure we act upon the feedback from the evening by ensuring there is a longer time allocation next year, in order to allow more time for the question and answer session at the end. Thank you so much for this valuable feedback and your commitment in supporting your children in school.

 


Day 2 – Isle of Wight – Year 5/6

We have had a really good day. The teachers were hoping for a 6 am start, but it kicked off 20 minutes earlier. We walked from Freshwater Bay to The Needles. A beautifully idyllic 7 miles. We managed to dodge the rain and were able to sit amongst the grass writing poetry. Next stop was sand filling, plenty of money spending opportunities and an ice cream. A steep descent to the beach was followed by a trip around the Needles on a boat. The day is going to be finished with a film. We can’t wait for tomorrow’s excitement- a rocky shore exploration and a fun packed afternoon of water sports.


Day 1 – Isle of Wight – Year 5/6

All going is going well in the Isle of Wight.  The children had a great afternoon orienteering. The food is fantastic too!  The children finished the evening with a treasure hunt around the centre which was great fun. They had to find Mr Bullock in the hedge, wet their hair, make up songs and make human words! More news will follow tomorrow…

 


Sports Day

We were so lucky with the weather, an overcast sky meant it wasn’t too hot for the children at the start of the morning.   Thank you to all the parents who came to watch and cheer the children on. There was a wonderful atmosphere and it was great to see so many families enjoying their picnics together after all the races. The children all displayed fantastic sportsmanship during the event and were all incredibly supportive of one another.   Thank you to Mrs Willimont for organising another successful sports day and all the staff that helped on the day.


Hereford Primary Schools Maths Championship

We are delighted to share with you that the school took part in the ‘Hereford Primary Schools’ Maths Championship’ challenge yesterday and came third out of twelve schools.  Congratulations to the children who took part.  They demonstrated fantastic team skills and their subject knowledge was outstanding.


GB Paralympic Footballer Jack Rutter

 

We were very excited to welcome GB Paralympic Footballer Jack Rutter to the school on Tuesday, 13 June. Jack was a premier league footballer when an incident left him with brain damage that severely affected his balance and hearing. He is now the captain of the England Cerebral Palsy Football Team.

Jack led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.  The children all had a fantastic time and were all inspired by Jack’s story.
