Latest updates from our school
It's that time of week again when I publish our weekly spelling post. Let's see if we can end the year on a high by learning our spellings every night! I have attached our spelling lists and a handy link to some fun activities and games to support you and your child whilst you learn this week's spellings. Our spelling test will be on Friday (14th December). Please post any comments or questions about our spellings or the activities in the comments section below. Have fun! Mr Gordon.

Quality day in the snow.
The children took on the Trailblazer Assault Course (TAC) and each team nailed it. All children were encouraging, supportive, determined and resilient. They showed great teamwork and ability to problem solve.
There was a winning team, but only by a couple of seconds, however, because of their positive attitude throughout, they were all winners!
After the event, we had a bit of fun with the dog-sled, before returning inside and selecting words to describe our personal performance; again, these children constantly amaze me with their ability to self reflect and offer praise to their peers. Great job.
We started with reflections on the attributes needed to be a top TBer; we then took on a problem solving / team building assault course!
One team completed the challenge in under 30 minutes, and throughout they showed all of the attributes identified at the start of the session.
Other groups found themselves struggling to find determination and give encouragement when things became challenging; they discovered that the greatest challenges are often in the mind.
However...after thinking about their personal performance and reflecting on other ways of facing adversity, they all pulled together and defeated the rest of the course; in the end, they all showed true grit and determination and came out winners!
What a beautiful morning! We followed fox tracks in the snow and then made our own trails.
After this, some took winter landscape photos while others thought about the personal attributes that made for quality TBers; with these thoughts in mind, we undertook problem solving challenges and focused on being supportive and encouraging to our fellow team members.
To finish, we made a dog sled, caught some huskies and went for rides round the field - mush, mush!
Well done to our pupils for winning the Mathematics Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in Mathematics. Also, a big congratulations to Talia who won the Headteacher's Special Award for her positive and determined attitude to learning which helps her to stand out each time Mr Hull visits Team Resilience.
As we near Christmas, some of the children have been learning Christmas songs during their music lessons.
Phoebe is showing off her talent, playing a Jingle Bells duet with her teacher Elissa.
I'm you'll agree she sounds great.

Fun team building challenges were the order of the day today.
The children rose to the occasion and supported each other wonderfully; the theme of the afternoon was Self Control, and the majority of the children rose to the challenge, having fun and showing buckets of enthusiasm, while remaining in control, ensuring their behaviour did not negatively impact on others within their group.
As with Y3 TBers, it was great to see certain members of the group beginning to show real leadership qualities, thinking of others before themselves and helping other groups to achieve!
Great work everyone, thanks for a lovely afternoon.
