What a Christmas filled week it has been! On Wednesday we had a very successful seniors sing-a-long with over 25 members of the community coming to join us for some very moving singing. Well done to all the children who took part and sang so beautifully we have had some lovely feedback from those who came.

On Thursday we held our Christmas Fayre selling products all the children had been hard at work making all week. Here are Infant 1, Infant 2 and Junior 2’s adverts…

Junior 1 produced a fantastic powerpoint presentation all about their products and the reason for producing them here Our First Christmas to Save Our Planet

The final results for the amount of profit made was:
Infant 1- £61
Infant 2- £33.05
Junior 1- £38.86
Junior 2- £43.17
GOSH (donated to Gardening club) £26.60
Making a total of £202.68!!!

Onto our Brilliant book…

Infant 1- Ben – for fantastic reading this week. Ben is not only blending really well but recognising some red words in his book as well.
Lillie-Mae- has been brilliant in our nativity play rehearsals.  She can always be heard singing out really well and joining in all the actions.

Infant 2- Lyla and Seth- for consistently being amazing in their delivery of their lines during the nativity rehearsals. 
Scarlett- Writer of the week this week for some stand out writing about the twits.

Junior 1- Krishan- for his well written complex sentences using subordinate conjunctions. They were well thought out, totally independent and beautifully presented.
Evie H- for a range of different types of sentences included in her paragraph of independent writing. She used questions and exclamations in a very effective manner. Keep it up!

Junior 2- the whole class were in the brilliant book this week for really impressing Mr Gething and Mr Tyler so much during Enterprise week, working brilliantly as a team.

The lacrosse team also deserve a special mention for great determination and never giving up despite not winning a goal. There was some fantastic defending and goal scoring but their team work shone through throughout.

Headteacher blog w/c 8th Oct

Last week was possibly my favourite week of the term so far! Wednesday after school a group of year 5 students formed our Lacross team and took part in their first tournament. They did so well and Mr Tyler was particularly impressed with their attitude.  They played 4 games, winning 1, drawing 2 and losing 1.

On Thursday morning we had our harvest festival celebration and the hall was full to bursting with all the children and their parents. Every class did themselves proud and Rev Simon Jones spoke to us about how when we all contribute a little bit what a big difference it can make.  A big thank you to all those parents who made a donation for The Friary drop in centre who were incredibly grateful for the items of food. They were also delighted to receive a large vat of soup made by our gardening club from vegetables grown right here in school. Well done to all involved and we hope those of you who joined us enjoyed it.

On to our brilliant book…

Infant 1- Dylan and Anders- for some fantastic turn taking and mathematics.  Both boys worked together to create a car park number line from 1-20.
Frankie- for trying really hard with dressing and undressing for PE. Frankie managed to put his socks on this week by himself- no excuses at home now Frankie!

Infant 2- Toby and Ella J – for fantastic enthusiasm, determination and healthy competition seeing who could collect the most green cards in one day. They assured me it was a draw!
Writer of the week was Hudson Butlin- for his Owl Babies story, watch this space to be able to read it soon!

Junior 1- Riley H- for outstanding reading progress. Great pace, comprehension, decoding and focus.
Melissa- for outstanding homework on maths mastery, Excellent attitude and effort. She is just a great mathematician!

Junior 2- Orla and Harriet- for a great piece of reading comprehension on UFOs
Archie- super maths work this week on written addition.

I look forward to finding out how we can top this week. A big thank you to all parents who are filling in the values slips to let us know how your children are demonstrating these at home. If you do want any more copies I have passed these onto class teachers. Our hall display is already looking fantastic.
