  • ‘100 Something’ for the Captain Tom Moore Foundation

    Fri 30 Apr 2021 J. Langley

    In memory of Captain Tom Moore completing his 100 steps challenge, the Year 5 children in Class 3 organised a ‘100 something’ event. They set a number of challenges around the school field for children to complete including 100 skips, catches, runs and goals. We also wrote 100 word poems thanking Captain Tom and completed a variety of ‘make 100’ number problems. We would like to congratulate the Year 5 children for organising a fantastic event for the rest of the school!

  • Koala Day

    Fri 14 Feb 2020 J. Langley

    As a response to the news about the Australian Bush Fires, on 14th February the School Council organised a fundraising day to make our school ‘koala protectors’ with the World Wildlife Fund.

    During the day children dressed up as an animal native to Australia or in the colours of the Australian flag, too part in koala hand painting and held a second hand toy stall. The School Council also organised a koala art competition. We raised £152.95 which will help us to support 6 koalas. Well done!
