Head Teachers blog w/c 24th Feb

What a fantastic first week back after a eventful half term in the village. It was great to welcome all the children back and be thankful that the flooding wasn't as bad as had been forecast. We launched our #Livelent campaign thinking about making promises for how we can take care of God's world and make our school more sustainable. This week we were focusing on light and saving energy. I hope the children have been making an effort at home too!


Next week we are looking forward to welcoming a Storyteller into school on Monday as part of our world book week. Hopefully you will have seen the flyer full of information about what is happening all week including the stay and read and book swap. Please note the official world book day is on Thursday however as Junior 2 are on a trip we will be dressing up as a book character of your choice on the Friday.


A big well done to the Lacrosse team who, before half term, won all 4 games they won at a tournament. The standard of Lacrosse was fantastic and all 6 children worked so well as a team and all scored at least 1 goal. An amazing achievment!


On to our brilliant book...


Infant 1- Super sentence writer- Eleanor- for trying really hard to write and sound out words on her won. Well done!

Marcel- for a fantastic start in Infant 1, making lots of new friends and trying lots of new activities.


Infant 2- Writer of the week- Rhys- for an excellent character description of Katie Morag with great presentation. Miss Bottrell was blown away by the standard (a picture is below for you to see!)

Georgie- for showing great determination in maths to explain her working out. You didn't give up and really impressed all your teachers this week.

Lissie and Ella J- for taking great care of your spellings  and taking time to get all your writing accurate. Miss Bottrell couldn't choose between you. Well done girls!


Junior 1- Frances- for the massive improvement in your reading. Mrs Palethorpe has heard you read so fluently and with such expression she was amazed how good you are now!

Harrison- for your determination and hard work persevering with reading. This will really help you when you become a journalist or author. (Just don't forget us!)

Pollyanna and Lyla P- for their excellent headings for the paragraphs that they read. Great word choices and efficient use of the themes.


Junior 2- Evie B and Erica- Super maths work calculating missing angles.

Riley, Ben and Ali (work shown below)- super maths work with a protractor measuring and drawing angles accurately.
