KS1 have been learning about Stickman. A couple of weeks ago Hargreaves shared a brief outline of the story in their assembly and this week Butterworth retold the story, beautifully, using their talk for writing phrases and actions.

Both classes, along with Potter, have written their own versions of the story. Hopefully, as you look through your school books this weekend, you will be able to read your version to your family. I am sure they will enjoy the changes.

We also watched the trailer for the theatre show and saw how someone else had interpreted the story. It has a very catchy tune which children (and staff) could be heard singing at various random moments over the last 3 weeks!

Rules for a happy playground


Today, our house captains prepared an assembly to share our new 'Rules for a happy playground' display boards. These rules were generated during family forum by the children and then refined and shortlisted by the house captains. 

To celebrate the new display boards the house captains demonstrated how to follow each of these rules.



The process
  1. A family forum was held, asking the children for their ideas on rules for a happy playground.
  2. These rules were then refined and shortlisted by the house captains.
  3. The rules were selected and the display boards ordered.
  4. The house captains presented the rules and the boards to the school in an assembly.
  5. The boards will be displayed on the front and back playgrounds.

Mrs Devine would like to thank all the children involved for their help.

In Hargreaves class, we have been learning to tell the time. We have looked at how to tell when it is o'clock or half past. Please help us to continue our learning at home by asking ask to read these times from an analogue clock. Thank you.

Winter walks over the past week in Nursery.

We have been enjoying the wintery weather over the last week, investigating our environment and discovering that some creatures hibernate during the winter time. BloggerImage BloggerImage BloggerImage BloggerImage BloggerImage BloggerImage BloggerImage
