Infant's sports day.
The winning teams are Red 11 and Blue 11. Well done.
Thank you to everybody who turned up to support the school's summer fair. There was a wonderful choice of stalls, activities and entertainment to keep everyone happy despite the cloudy weather. Well done to year six for organising some excellent activities. Look out for updates from the PTFA to see how much was raised in total.
The Friendship Tree
And finally...the tree has been built!
This tree was designed by children at the school. The school council announced that they felt the Junior playground needed a Friendship area as they missed the Friendship bench in the Infant playground. The children specifically asked for a tree-but they wanted it to be unique. Every child in the school was invited to design a tree and the winning designs were put together to create the final design. The children have been working hard to raise the money for the tree including doing a sponsored spell, sponsoring a leaf and organising a fund-raising day. We also had a generous donation from an anonymous grand-parent meaning that we had enough money to build the tree. the children are very excited about this new addition to the playground.
Funding Raising for the Friendship Tree
The children came up with some wonderful ideas to raise money for the Friendship Tree that they wanted to build in the Junior Playground. These included 'Guess the Sweets in the Jar', 'Decorate the baldified teacher!', 'Splat a Governor and man more...
Thank you to everyone who helped with the day. A special thanks to our very brave governors who allowed themselves to be battered with wet sponges.
The day raised a grand total of £888.14. The money from the sponsored spellings has also gone towards the tree along with money from everyone who sponsored a leaf.
Here are some of the activities below:

Book week kicked off with an amazing dress-up day- well done to all the children for their incredible outfits and to everyone who helped piece them together.
Thinking of Others
Our school is proud to host a variety of fund-raising events for charity throughout the school year. These events are chosen by the children and range from non-uniform days to cake bakes.
Every year we support Operation Christmas Child and encourage pupils to pack a shoebox full of goodies which is delivered to children in countries less fortunate than ours.
Supporting Operation Christmas Child
Our pupils were keen to help in the refugee crisis so we requested donations of clothes and shoes to send off to help others.
Supporting the Refugee Crisis
Every year we ask for donations from the parents to share with the elderly in the local community. Accompanying the Harvest parcels we send out invitations to invite the local community to the school to join us for a special Remembrance Service.
Members of the community joining us for tea, cake and a chat after the service:
Saving the Rainforests
Children in year 4 study the Rainforests. they decided they wanted to help save the Rainforests by raising money to pay to sponsor an acre of land. They decided to have a cake bake which was extremely successful!
Children In Need
Every year the pupils like to dress up to support Children in Need. The hero theme proved very popular but some preferred to opt for spots and stripes:
