Week Ending 15th February 2019


It’s been a very scientific week this week in school…young scientists everywhere! Thank you to Mrs Clarke for organising such an event.

During British Science Week, every year group were exposed to scientific enquiry and learning. There was an array of different science activities and today the science showcase in the hall was just fabulous. We took views from the children about the learning they had been engaged with and children were confidently discussing science on their stalls. The grid below shows the types of activities that the children have been involved with and the learning that has taken place through texts, reading and scientific investigations:

Rainbow Rewards was ‘different’ today with a sea of red noses looking at me. What a lovely assembly and many great accounts and rewards shared and celebrated.


Red nose day continued with a ‘joke-off’ and ‘selfies’ and the assembly in the afternoon was entertaining for everyone. Heidi from Blue 2 won the joke-off. The children were happy and having fun, whilst also considering the charity and what they support. £215.90 was raised today for Comic Relief so thank you very much.Thanks again to another member of staff, Miss Marvin, for arranging the day.


Class pages will be sharing photos from throughout the week, so take a look and read about what the children have been up to in individual classes.


Have a great weekend everyone and I look forward already to another super week next week.


Warm regards,
