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.
A group of key stage two children recently attended a pyramid tag-rugby tournament at Hazelbury Bryan Primary School. They played four matches against the other schools showing great determination and teamwork as they did so. Well done to all of the children involved.
Throughout the school we are practising our spelling in lots of exciting and fun ways. This is helping us to learn our spellings each week. In Desert class, our favourite activities so far are: writing in shaving foam; using chalk outside; threading letter beads; tracing in crazy ways; using alphabet spaghetti (although very stinky!) and also stamping magnetic letters in playdough.
Our Year 6 children visited Sturminster Newton High School for the open evening this week. The children took part in a maths challenge and these children succeeded in answering the mathematical sentence challenge successfully. Well done!
Meet our new Year 5 Change for Life ambassadors! They attended the training day this week at Shaftesbury and are now ready to lead a lunchtime club for the younger children in our school.
