We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Well done to all of our Achievement Assembly winners this week at our first special assembly of the new year.

Courage Fri TB - Woodland Badges

We discussed jobs and some safety rules before searching for the badge-disks that Poppy had left for us.

We then came up with woodland names and an action to go with them. The felt-tips came out next and we made our badges - we had to learn the over-hand and larks-foot knots.

Team Courage Spellings and homework

Thank you for all the support you have shown me and your child over the past two weeks.  The engagement with the homework planners has been encouraging to see too.  Next week, I will hand out our spelling lists and number Bonds cards. 

Below, I have attached the spelling lists and a link to some games and activities that will help to support your child whilst they learn their spellings.  Please note that your child's first spelling test will be on Monday 23rd September.

On Monday, your child will receive a set of cards to help them learn their number bonds.  Stay tuned for a video showing you how to use the cards.  In the meantime, here is a link to 'Hit the Button'.  Your child has played 'Hit the Button' in class and we have found this a fun and engaging way to learn number bonds.

Hit The Button

On a final note, your child should have been set a reading task.  This will be due back at school on Friday.  If you have any queries regarding homework or the homework planner, please don't hesitate to contact me at school.  

Kind regards, Mr Gordon.

Equality TB - Observational Art

After allocating jobs, we headed out on a forage...and what great foragers they were; we had quite a few locate all 16 varieties. 

After this, we got out pastels, wax crayons and pencil crayons before finding a peaceful spot and sketching the things we had found - there was some beautiful work!

Endurance TB - Helping Trees

We started by allocating jobs before undertaking the foraging challenge. We then helped the saplings by clearing the grass from their bases. 

To finish, we had a grass battle, cup race and game of hide and seek - Jacob was the winner of H and S.

Discovery TB - Mapping Food-Stuffs

The children followed the theme from this morning, mapping where different Munchkin provions could be found on the school field. 

After, we discussed ideas for next week and finished with a game of hide and seek.

Endeavour TB - Foraging

After an urgent request from Poppy to help with locating winter provisions, the children undertook a search for fruit, berries and nuts on the school site - they found at least 16 varieties! 

After this, they had time to pursue their own interests.

Resilience TB - The Rain Eases

We got ready, allocated jobs and headed down to the wood.

After a warm drink by the fire, we learned a couple of knots and made our woodland badges.

Before heading home, we discussed our clothing choices - some of the children were a little chilly so decided they were going to bring some extra layers next week.

Thanks to parents for helping children with quality gear for this week's session!

Courage TB - What's all this then

We started with a kit check before allocating everyone a TB job. 

In the wood, we were greeted by a warm fire in TBHQ, and from here we discussed some of the safety rules in the wood. 

We then had a look round the site, and chatted about some of the things that we found along the way. 

Back in TBHQ, we had a hot chocky whilst listening to a story. We finished by making our woodland ID badges - essential in ensuring Poppy, Queen of the Munchkins, knows who we all are. 

Big thanks to parents for ensuring children had all the right gear!
