With only two weeks left of our trampoline club for the Year 5 and 6 children, most of them are building up to landing their first front somersault! Many of the children are doing a great job of their ‘hands and knees’ turnovers and are looking forward to progressing to standing starts!
On Friday, the winners of our ‘Extreme Reading’ Competition were announced. There were many fantastic entries for each of the categories, making it very difficult for the judges to decide who should win. We think you’ll agree though; there has been some very extreme reading going on!
Our three winners received a £10 book voucher to find another book to enjoy, whether extreme-ly or not.
Pupil Winner: Poppy
Parent Winner: (Finley’s Mum)
Staff Winner: Mrs Hext
World Book Day was celebrated in style by the whole school on Thursday 2nd March 2017. Everyone arrived in a huge range of wonderful costumes, dressed as their favourite book character. I’m sure you will agree, there are some very creative people in our school!
The morning’s procession of book characters saw four Foundation/KS1 children being shortlisted for the ‘Best Dressed’ award as well as five KS2 children. Our winners were Charlie aka Flat Stanley and Jake aka The Demon Dentist!
We took part in many book related activities throughout the day including; buddy reading, DEAR moments (Drop Everything And Read) and book reviews. Check out the gallery above to enjoy some of the best moments of the day!
Today was the entry deadline for the ‘Extreme Reading’ competition. We have had lots of fantastic (and some scary looking) entries and we look forward to announcing the winners in our celebration assembly on Friday!
On Monday morning, Dahl and Morpurgo Classes had a visit from two Police Officers to discuss internet safety. We listened very carefully to the dangers we can find whilst online and how we can protect ourselves against them. We asked and answered lots of questions and the officers were really impressed with how much we knew and the things we do to stay safe when online.
This week we have been learning front landings as well as perfecting our shaped jumps and seat landings; with and without twists.
