Lots of the children are achieving certificates on Mathletics. These are the achievements just from this last week! Well done to you all and keep it up.
Congratulations to all the children from the Winter Wiggles Club, who put on a fantastic performance this afternoon! Your dance moves were fantastic! Thank you to Mrs Stewart and Mrs Strowger who supported the children. Well done!
The children were very excited to receive a visit from Ben Rushgrove this week. All of the children took part in some exercise ciruits before listening to Ben talk about his achievements; they even got to hold his Olympic medals! Ben then answered lots of questions from the children and really enjoyed listening to his aspirational answers. Maybe one day we will see one of the children winning their own Olympic medal!
We are so pleased with our new clay totum poles that have been erected outside the front of our school!
During our last Arts Week, with a Native American theme, all the children were involved in developing a clay face from sketches they had made. Local artist, Des Alner, ran workshops during the week and then took away our clay faces to be fired. Well done to all our pupils, they did a fantastic job!
A big thank you to parents, Mr Caldwell and Mr Stanley, who spent one Saturday morning helping to put the totum poles securely in the ground. We are very lucky to have had Des Alner working with us on this project, not only because of his expertise in the arts but also for his enthusiasm and creativity.
We also need to thank the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Society' for funding this project.
