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.

Trailblazers Y3/4 - creativity and communication

We started with the Creepy Glove Game - Edward did an excellent job and showed great maturity when sharing his experiences with the group.

We then split up, with some building dens or constructing trenches; others followed an art theme, with final groups undertaking communication challenges or making bows.

The children are really blossoming, showing excellent levels of communication, creativity and independence, whilst supporting each other to keep safe.

Emily's Skilful Synonyms

Emily amazed Team Equality this week when she completed her homework.

She was asked to list five alternative words (synonyms) for the word 'said' but managed to list a whopping 192.

Well done Emily, your challenge now is to apply them to your written work this year.

Trailblazers Y5 - bit o' this and that

We started with the Sniper Game, with our 4 assistant adults being the snipers...the children and I stood no chance, with 20 of us being mowed down in the first 3 minutes of battle! In the end, we got 3 of the snipers, but Mrs Scott proved too effective, capably seeing off the final assault from her tree-top hide.

After this, some took artistic inspiration from Andy Goldsworthy and Giuseppe Penone, others honed fire making skills or made models of WW1 battlefields with a final group continuing work on their round-house.

Trailblazers Y6 - team challenges

6 captains were chosen, and each randomly selected a challenge...captains then had to think of the skills needed to fulfil their challenge, and pick team members they though had these.

Teams then discussed how they were going to tackle their challenge, breaking it down into steps and allocating roles to individuals. Equipment was selected and we then headed into the wood.

The children were collaborative, supportive and creative, showing good problem solving skills, with many selecting and using a range of tools appropriately and safely. 

At the end, we had a lovely cup of hot chocolate and identified and discussed the attributes we had shown.

Equality: Autumn 2, Week 2 homework

Your child has received their CGP book today. We will be using this throughout the year in class and to support learning at home. 

This week, I would like the children to look at 'Using commas in lists' on page 40/41 for their homework. We have discussed the task as a class so the children should know what they need to do. The CGP books will need to be back in school on Monday please. 20181114_162551
If there are any issues or if there is anything you wish to discuss, please let me know. 

Thanks for your ongoing support,

Miss J
