The children had a wonderful time today dressed up in their Onesie/PJ’s – they enjoyed fun activities in their house groups. Thank you for your kind donations for Onesie day.
Thank you to all the children who entered our Valentine colouring competition – our Mini Vinnie’s worked hard to choose the winners. It was a difficult choice as there were over 90 entries and every picture was beautifully coloured.
The winners were announced in afternoon assembly. Thank you to all the children who entered.
On Thursday 14th February parents were invited to join us in our “Let there be Love” event. There were 3 prayer stations throughout the school, focusing on different aspects of love. Parents were invited to collect their child from class and attend the stations with their children. After they had visited the prayer stations everyone was invited to gather in the school hall where refreshments were served.
It was a lovely afternoon – thank you to everyone who attended.
We were lucky enough to have Phil Mellons in school today to deliver free cricket coaching sessions to our children (ages 5 to 8). The children had a fantastic time and loved the sessions.

Year 2’s topic this term has been “The Great Fire of London” – they have been learning all about this historical event in class. The children worked hard all day in a special workshop designed especially for the children to learn all about the great Fire of London and perform a “Play in a Day” for the rest of the school.
Children can come to school wearing their favourite onesie and even bring their favourite teddy bear with them. There is no charge for this fun day but if you would like to contribute £1 towards the school fund it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
On Friday 8th February we supported ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ in school. The children were invited to come to school dressed in red to help us think about our theme.
In class we used stories to help develop our understanding. On top of this the children worked with an ex-professional footballer in a variety of workshops to further develop there understanding of diversity and also there understanding of article 19: You have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, in body or mind.
On Friday 8th February we will be supporting ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ in school. The children are invited to come to school dressed in red to help us think about our theme.
