When you walk through the door of Shillingstone School you will know immediately that this is a caring and inclusive school where everybody feels welcome.
With strong staff parent partnerships and a varied and engaging curriculum, children are motivated to achieve their full potential.
When pupils leave the school, it is with happy memories of their primary education and an enthusiasm for future learning.
The children have participated in two sporting events over the past few weeks. Firstly, we held the annual cross-country event. The children did a fantastic job at representing the school despite the very unpleasant weather!
We also attended the Year 5/6 pyramid football tournament at Child Okeford. The team did a brilliant job and really enjoyed playing against lots of other schools. Well done boys!
We have had a fantastic range of activities on offer for the children to celebrate World Book Day!
Last night (Thursday 2nd March 2017), we welcomed over 60 children to the Bedtime Stories. All of the children and staff were dressed in their pyjamas and enjoyed sharing some bedtime stories together. Thank you to the PTA who provided hot chocolate and biscuits!
Today (Friday 3rd March 2017), all the children arrived at school dressed as their favourite book character. The children worked in mixed age groups and attended workshops delivered by staff, linked to story books from different cultures. The children listened to the stories and then carried out a range of art, drama and design activities linked to the stories. We also welcomed an actor into school to deliver a drama workshop to each class linked to 'The Marriage of Ganesh.'
The finale was a whole school assembly this afternoon, when children had the opportunity to share their work. We hope the children thoroughly enjoyed their day!
The votes were counted earlier in the week revealing that Henry, Year 3, had been chosen to be our Prime Minster for the Day!
Henry had chosen for the children (and staff!) to have a comfy day, coming to school in their pyjamas. The children were also allowed to bring in their own toys and electronic games which they played with during their extended golden time. The most exciting part of the day was the lunch disco which was held in our Atrium.
Well done Henry, we all agree you were a fantastic Prime Minister!
