3SU have been joined by a mischief making elf this week. He has caused havoc throughout our classroom. We think he likes the hand roll! What mischief will he get up to next?
Despite the cold conditions and frost hanging on everything in sight, 5B loved their Daily Mile today; melting frost, looking at ice crystals and watching the mist float through the trees.
Attendance in school this week was 93.7% – please remember we are aiming for 96% to put our school in line with primary school attendance nationally and at the moment are not reaching this.
There were fewer late arrivals to school this week, with 94 late arrivals between Monday and Friday.
It’s Pantomime time this week! All of the children will be enjoying the show ‘Sleeping Beauty’ on Wednesday morning in our school hall. There is no charge for the show this year, we are using our school fund to pay for the show. School fund is always spent directly on the children to benefit them in some way. Thank you for supporting our events where we raise money for the school fund. We are currently collecting 5 pence pieces!
Can we ask for a donation on Friday next week to help towards our Christmas Fair on the 10th December? Could Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and 2 bring in cakes for our café please? Could KS2 bring in any kind of bottle please? This could be a bottle of –
- Washing up liquid
- Any other bottle you can think of!
Thanks in advance!
Instead of sending Christmas cards to each other, each year the staff donate what they would have spent on cards to ‘Save the Children’ and wear their Christmas Jumpers on Friday 13th December. Would you like to join us? Would your children? Everyone is welcome to join in Christmas Jumper Day – donations collected in the bucket kept at the office.
Finally a reminder that school is closed to children on Thursday 12th December as we are open to the public all day from early morning til late at night as a Polling Station for the General Election.

Miss Webb has worked out how to reach the target number. Can you? Year six have been trying, but they haven’t managed it yet!
As part of #History, Year One have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We had a visit from firefighters who told us about their job and showed us around a fire engine.
On Friday 22nd November Key Stage Two enjoyed a Firehorse Productions performance of ‘Just Joshing’.
We found out about the impact of bullying on all involved and explored the idea of ‘I was just joking’ as a defense for deliberately unkind, repeated behaviour towards another.
The key anti-bullying messages were delivered in an upbeat, funny and thought provoking way – balancing humour with reflection.
