Easter Worship

All children and staff attended our Easter Worship yesterday some Governors also visiting too. Our recorder club started our worship by performing Peace Perfect Peace. Despite their stage fright they impressed everyone with their first performance.

We sang a number of songs including Servant King and Hurray for Jesus. Everyone was given their palm cross and held them carefully during our Easter prayers. Some of our Year 6 children had prepared their own video version to accompany the hymn See What a Morning.

As the children left the hall they were also given an Easter Egg treat!


School Council litter pick

This morning, just after assembly, eight School Councillors from KS1 and KS2 worked with Mr Woodcock and Mr Knight to tidy up the entrance to our school. The small patch of ground just outside of our school had been identified as untidy by a child in KS2. They had suggested to Callum and Rose, our Head Boy and Head Girl, that some school councillors could tidy it up. Not wanting to disappoint, the school council leapt into action and took some direct action.

Have a look at the before and after photos to see the difference they have made!

Reception go APE!

Last week Lucia from Scrap Magic brought a huge range of recycled materials for Reception to use imaginatively.

Working in the Pod, the children had the chance to create whatever they wanted. They could work in pairs, small groups or individually and came up with some very creative ideas.

The children really did have an ‘APE’ (adventurous play experience) afternoon!

Reception PE

​Reception started their PE lessons just after Christmas and are working super hard so far. This half term we have been doing gymnastics.

The children are enjoying taking risks, trying new things and improving on what they could do the week before!

Take a look at the pictures to see our gymnastics fun…

Reception visit Stockeld Park

Reception had another very exciting trip this week! This time we visited the Enchanted Forest at Stockeld Park.

The weather was beautiful and we had a wonderful time exploring the forest to search for characters from some of our favourite stories.

In the words of Ollie in Acorn, “It was just such a great day!”
