WOW! What an incredible turnout this morning! It was so nice to see so many families up and ready to begin their weekend in the great outdoors. We were thrilled that the rain held off and allowed us to complete the orienteering course without any obstacles. The children loved it and so did the adults! Thank you so much for coming along and joining us. Your feedback would be really appreciated so please comment on here and let us know what you thought! Here’s to another successful well-being event, for all the family!
Welcome back Year Two, Mrs Cafferty and I hope you had a fabulous half term break. This half term our focus in English is going to be all about Traditional Tales. To start off our learning, we would like to know, what is your favourite Traditional Tale?
Well done to all of our football teams for competing in the Bolton School Tournament this week. You played incredibly well and should be so proud of yourselves! Year 3 and 4 boys were both undefeated in their friendly festival. The ‘B’ team played in the group stages, the ‘A’ team won their group, but unfortunately were knocked out in penalties in the last 16.
A special mention to our girls team who reached the quarter finals. We are especially proud of you as our team is mostly made up of Year 4/5 and it was a Year 5/6 competition!
The forest was filled with bugs on Tuesday so don’t forget to ask your grown up to squirt you with some insect repellent this Tuesday.
Also, the forest may be very wet on Tuesday, after a dramatic change in weather, so make sure you have waterproof shoes (wellies are fine!).
What did you enjoy in our first session?
In our English lessons we are planning our own story from another culture based on the story we read “The three magicians”. We have written our setting descriptions and we are going to be thinking about our story plot next week. What ideas have you got? What will the three magicians be fighting over… what will they foolishly create… what will they say as they cast their spells?
Share your ideas with each other on here!
Year 6 were visited by the fire service this morning and Miss Venner couldn’t resist asking if Reception could have a sneaky look at the fire engine whilst it was at school. Unfortunately, the firefighters were called out on an emergency and therefore had to leave earlier than expected but hopefully they will come back soon if Miss Venner has anything to do about it 🙂 When they drove off, their siren’s and blue flashing lights were on and the children were all very very excited about this. Fingers crossed they come back soon 🙂
