House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Water! Well done Water!
Donation to Buy Microphones
I wanted to donate £50 to buy the school microphone because I really like singing and acting which both use microphones. I also just felt like it and I didn't know what to spend my pocket money on so I decided to give some to the school.
Maisie - Class 5W
Wow thanks Maisie - this is going above and beyond! We are truly thankful for your very generous donation.
Year 1 Pyjama Day
Well done to Year 1 for earning 100 marbles again for their amazing behaviour and enthusiasm in learning.
They chose to wear their pyjamas into school on Tuesday as a treat.
Year 6 Christmas Coordinates!
Year 6 have been getting in the Christmas spirit in Maths through plotting coordinates on the four quadrants. We started with Rudolf, Holly and Frosty the snowman in the 1st quadrant and are moving on to completing the Elf challenge across 4 quadrants. Would you like a Christmas challenge completing Santa?
Have you been watching the Advent videos from Reverends Jon and Terry (and Ralph)? Children from Years 5 and 6 have done a great job with the readings. See Reverend Jon's Youtube channel here to catch up.
