During anti-bullying week each class produced something different. Class 3 and 4 produced raps etc. Some were shared in school and one in particular was VERY popular! We have been asked over and over for this video to appear on the internet. Here is our very own Y1 rap star in her first ever single. We hope you enjoy it!

Ronnie – anti-bullying
Today we had a special production of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. It was fantastic! The cast used amazing scenery and lighting effects to create a stunning performance. The children laughed, clapped and cheered along to a thoroughly entertaining experience.
“The best part was when Mrs Taylor and Mrs McClaire had to get up on stage. They were so good … like professional dancers.” Ethan
“I loved Buttercup the cow costume and all of the dance routines.” Charlie.
We all loved how the cast had linked in modern songs and dance moves to make the show original. The whole experience really got us in a Christmas spirit as it was a real pantomime! Thanks to Mrs Walpole for organising this event.
Remember, remember the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, Treason and plot!
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
On Monday Year 1 were surprised by an amazing visitor. Guy Fawkes came to school in order to help the children learn about the ‘Gunpowder Plot’. It was an enjoyable and exciting morning.
“I could not believe all of the interesting artefacts that Guy brought with him for the children to learn about.” Declared Miss Jordan.
Overall it was a super start to the unit of learning!
This term Family learning ran a short course for Foundation 2 and Key Stage 1 parents and carers to work with their children to make a story bag. We had 44 adults who worked really hard with their children to make some fantastic bags to go with a traditional story. In Year 2 we read traditional tales with a twist, Jack and the Bean Pie, Little Bad Riding Hood, The Three Frilly Goats Fluff and The New Neighbour (a twist on The Three Little Pigs). Foundation Stage and Year 1 children read the more traditional versions of the well known stories. Everyone decorated a bag, made puppets for the characters in their story, made a game to practise reading tricky words and wrote part of the story to match with a picture sequence.
Some children even managed to collect lots of objects to match with their story, such as a pack of turnip seeds and a pair of gardening gloves for The Enormous Turnip or a Gingerbread Man cutter and recipe card for The Gingerbread Man. The course ended with a celebration of all the hard work and the bags were on display to share with class teachers and Mrs Dobbin and Mrs Watson our Chair of Governors. The children were presented with certificates and they in turn presented their adult partner with a certificate too. We enjoyed cakes and drinks and some parents in Year 2 baked with their children for the event. Well done to everyone who came along and worked so hard whilst having fun!
