KEEPING SAFE AT THE SCHOOL GATES

We recently placed some reminders on the school fence to prevent drivers stopping in an unsafe zig-zag zone outside school. School Council worked hard to identify the issues,  find and  then buy banners.

Imagine their horror when faced with this .....

We are so disappointed that some thoughtless people have decide to destroy something designed to keep us safe 

 

 

outdoor week June 2017

Despite the rain, children enjoyed a range of explorer linked outdoor activities (although some had to be moved inside!). They packed a rucksack for an expedition, made a wooden medal, cooked on the fire pit and built shelters from sticks and fabric. They explored the use of boats by famous historical explorers and designed and made their own boat. They had to ‘buy’ materials and think about how their boat could travel by wind power. The winning boat managed to carry 1.3kg of cargo! 

Each child also painted a story stone to show their learning experience over the week. These will be used to make a permanent display in the school grounds – watch this space!

A whole school sing-song on Friday afternoon rounded off the week and the sun even made an appearance!

 

 

 

EID-AL-FITR CELEBRATIONS

We celebrated the end of Ramadan by having our very own Eid-al-Fitr celebration. Each class attended a party in the hall where Miss Mohammed and Miss Arshad taught us some Bollywood dancing. We also played some games and received a special Eid biscuit. 

We all had fun!
