We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be.

KS1 Seaside Workshop

Seaside Workshop   Seaside Workshop

What a fantastic day we've had! The children in Year 1 and Year 2 have enjoyed a wonderful seaside workshop, learning all about the history of the seaside as well as taking part in lots of creative activities. A particular highlight was a traditional Punch and Judy show which gave us a behind the scenes sneak peek into how the puppets work. To top it off, we all had a deliciously refreshing ice lolly in the summer sunshine.

A big thank you to Ron from 'Jolly Good Workshops for Schools' for taking us on our fabulous trip back in time.

Year 3/4 Football Tournament

Football tournament

On Thursday we went to Baysgarth School to compete in a football tournament. Unfortunately, the other school couldn't make it so it was just our school. We split into three teams: orange, yellow and pink, and had a tournament. First we played some games. We did one where we had to pull someone else's bib that is what we call tails and the other game was steal the egg. It's like where you had to get as many balls as you could in a minute and when the leader said 'steal, steal, steal' we had to get other balls from other teams. The next thing that we did was a practice to do our football tournament and try and beat our score and then after that it was the real tournament. We were all shy to begin with but we all tried our best. First it was the pink and the yellows then it was the pink and the oranges then it was yellows and oranges. We all played two matches and the final score was pinks came last and then the oranges came second so that means that the yellows came first.
