GOLDEN TIME

Golden Time for Friday 8th January 2016 - the children produced a poster explaining the causes of World War 2

Miss White invited a couple of friends to come into school and take about their lives growing up and the changes in everyday things.  The children got to look at some artefacts and asked questions about them.

Time Travel - Miss White combined her Time Travel topic with Art and looked to the future!!!!!  Have a look at the self portraits Class Aire produced, half their face is aged and half is still their young, beautiful selves!!!!!!

On Friday 27th Nov Class Aire have been invited to participate in some sports sessions at Brooksbank which will be run by the Sports Leaders.  Children will need to bring an indoor and outdoor kit on Friday.

Class Aire had a fabulous time at Brooksbank on Friday.  They participated in 2 sport sessions - the first one a Sports Hall Athletics based session run by a group of Year 10 students and the in second session the boys and girls were split up, and the Year 11 students took the boys up to the MUGA to work on some football skills whilst the girls stayed in the gym to work on some netball skills.  I would like to thank Mr Crowther and Mr Ragan, along with their students for giving us this oportunity.

As it is the season of Advent our Travelling Cribs are being brought home by the children. 

Please ensure that if it is your child's turn for the Crib that the return it to school the following day so that the next child on the list has the chance to bring the Crib home.

I have included copies of the colouring pages below which have been included along with the booklet and a poster of Mary and Joseph's Journey.  Feel free to print out and colour in as many as you wish.

If you take photos of your famliy around the Crib please send them into school so we can add them to the display in the Library.

The children were fantastic during our Remembrance assembly, some of them wrote their own poems based on war, poppies and remembrance, which they read out. 

Miss Snape's Literacy Group working hard discussing their writing:

Wear bright colours for the day and buy some buns - if you would like to donate some buns for the sale they would be greatly appreciated - why not use Flora Buttery and help with the School Council's 'Tubs 4 Tabs'.

 

Stephanie's Hair Cut for Little Princess Trust

See Stephanie's newspaper article by clicking on our 'In the News' link on the home page.

Stephanie wanted to cut some of her hair and donate it to the Little Princess Trust because in her words, "Every child deserves to smile." 

Stephanie decided she wanted to do something to make a difference after watching a youtube clip of a little girl donating her hair to make a wig for another little girl who had lost her hair due to cancer treatment.  Stephanie set up a page on the 'Just Giving' website where she has explained what she is doing and why and set herself a target of raising £150.  In just a few weeks she has smashed her original target and raised a fantastic £754.  The page is still active if you wish to visit it and make a donation.

We were very lucky to share in Stephanie's experience as she had her hair cut in class this afternoon (2.10.15).  She has truely put our new Mission Statement into action with her thoughtfulness and we are all so very proud of her.
