Last week the children learnt all about St George’s Day, the Queen and British Values. We finished this special week with a 90th birthday party for the Queen. All of the children made an English flag and were given party food which they ate out on the school field. After this the children played traditional British games such as duck duck goose, cricket and hopscotch. Everyone had an amazing afternoon – one that would have made the Queen proud!

Sport Relief 2016

On Friday the children spent a majority of the day raising money for both Sport Relief and our home charity Help for Heroes. They came to school dressed in sports gear and then performed in a number of sporting activities including a run and a circuit. As is normal the most fun event for the children was the ‘sponge the teacher’ activity but they also raised money in teacher friendly ways such as a cake and biscuit sale.

It was a great day all round and we managed to raise £1039.39 for our charities. Well done everyone.

The storyteller Ian Douglas came to visit our school to tell the children some stories as part of Writing Week 2016. He explained the traditions of story telling and the purpose of stories. In his opinion the best stories contained a mix of truth, meaning and morality.

Everyone really enjoyed his performance.
