On Thursday 19th December, we celebrated VE day, as a conclusion to our whole school topic of World War Two. Each class made sandwiches, including spam. We enjoyed rock cakes using World War Two recipes. Children showed their dancing skills. We all sang ‘We’ll meet again’ and ‘Pack up your troubles’.
It was a wonderful party atmosphere with the whole school in the hall.
On Thursday 17th October, Reception and Year 1 spent a lovely sunny morning at Lea Wood. They found some interesting creatures in the pond and made some dens of all sizes, big dens and small dens, one for hedgehogs and even a large den for the Gruffalo! The children also found some perfect logs to make into see saws.
On Monday 1st July, the whole school visited the neighbouring village of Quenington for Fresh Air 2013, the biennial sculpture exhibition. We enjoyed a walk across the fields to see the stunning sculptures. Children had a great time, engaging with the varied sculptures. The theme was ‘Texture’ so there were some sculptures which children could touch. There were fantastic conversations about how sculptures were made, what materials they were made of and what they thought of them as well as what they felt like. The sun shone and we were complimented numerous times about the children’s superb behaviour.
On Thursday 21st March, we hosted the Fairtrade Small Schools Football Competition. It was a great event with many of our local small schools competing.
Both the Year 5/6 team and the Year 3/4 team won their groups and went through to the finals. The Y5/6 team had a nail-biting final against Sapperton. After full time, neither team had scored. It was decided to play on and Sapperton scored first so they won. All Year 5/6 teams played very well. The Year 3/4 team won their final and are photographed here with their shield. All teams and the referees from Farmor’s returned to the school hall for delicious Fairtrade cakes. There was a super atmosphere.
