Our Christian value this term is thankfulness
Our PE lesson this half term will be on Friday mornings where the children will be participating in gymnastics.
Everyday the children participate in outdoor learning where they have the opportunity to discover, experiment, learn about and connect to the natural world, as well as engage in a variety of outdoor and adventure activities. We recommend that the children keep a pair of wellies (or old trainers) and a waterproof jacket in school, as well as a pair of joggers, tracksuit bottoms, leggings or waterproof bottoms which they can slip on before going outside to keep themselves dry and warm. Also the children are more than welcome to keep a spare set of clothes in school in case they become muddy or wet whilst having fun with the capacity activities in the water tray, playing with the mud kitchen or building a bug hotel!
Our stars of the week are: Andrea and Louis
Our dojo winner is: Thomas

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year. The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish). Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices. Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance. The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances! Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you.
