Our week in class:

Isabelle and Rebecca did a great job as playground leaders today organising activities for key stage 1. Well done girls!

After only two full lessons the handbell group are doing an amazing job! It takes a lot of concentration and a huge amount of cooperation too.

And what an incredibly busy week it has been….

Our enterprise event was a roaring success! Well done to everyone for your hard work in planning, preparing and  running your stalls. We will calculate profit on Tuesday. A special thank you to Mrs Bigg for organising the event.

.

Well done to Owen, Red and Elle for achieving the highest three results in Elder class in the Primary Maths Challenge. Great job!

In maths, ELder class were solving a fraction jigsaw puzzle. There was great cooperation and stickability evident.

Elder class, you were amazing! We are all so proud of you all for getting up there and nailing it! Your words were clearly spoken and your acting fantastic – you should feel very proud of yourselves.

Annie emailed me after the performance:

It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with you and your lovely Elders! I shall miss them but hope we can keep in touch. I have to say I had a little tear in my eye at the end of that performance tonight. Young people never cease to amaze me! 
Thank YOU for all your support.

Our dress rehearsal is complete and Elder were fabulous! Not long now…..

Our tech run through was amazing!

In PE Elder class had the apparatus out and made great use of it. They showed their courage and skill at climbing and balances; some could even balance upside down at a height! From now until Christmas, PE on Tuesday and Wednesday will be outside so please ensure your child has their full outdoor PE kit in school on those days.
