    End of Term Good Marks

    An exciting morning was had today as the Houses battled for the winning place.

    Good-marks were read out to the children. One from the week and another for the term.  Seven children were given a £5 book token for gaining the highest number of points. Two children from each house in KS1, and two from KS2.

    These are the winning children with the highest good marks of the term! Well done to all!

    Then the totals were read to the children – what an incredible amount of marks given!

    One child was awarded his Entry Level award in Drums. A huge well done to him!


    It was then time to celebrate and award the children from Year 1 – Year 6 that had 100% attendance up until last Friday. The following children were awarded with a certificate!

    Ms Fourie then announced all the winners from last week’s Sport Relief extravaganza! The children were very excited listening to all the winners!

    Good Marks Assembly

    Lots of awards and celebrations today in assembly. With our new value of ‘confidence’ some children were chosen as showing this value over the past week.

    Others were given a ‘wild-card’ merit for showing another value over the past week. Well done to all children!

    Four children received commendations. Two for great ‘Victorian London’ projects, one for touch typing skills and the other for a precise and well written essay.

    With three of the commendations coming from the Brown house (worth 5 points each) it was a breathtaking moment when the final scores were revealed!

    Blues managed to hold onto their place by 3 points!

    Well done Blues, a great weeks work!

    The football team were also given certificates for their hard work in the U11 Football Tournament recently – click here to head to our news page for more information.

  • World Book Day

    Mr Manning started the day off with World Book Day assembly. After reading some of George’s Marvelous Medicine to the children, Year 6 performed parts of stories to the children. The children then had to guess which book it was from! A great to start to our cold but fun day!

    Good Marks Assembly

    Ms Fourie welcomed the children into assembly on this bright but cold winters morning!

    The marks were read out clearly by three Year 6 children who were excited to hear the final results.

    It was a win this week to the BROWN house for all their hard work. Big congratulations were given to all children for their efforts this week.

    It was then time to ask staff and children to stand up if they were wearing their school house badge. Points were awarded to the houses that were wearing a badge. It was a win for browns!

    Ms Fourie reminded us that we should be wearing our badges every day!

    All the teachers from Year 6 down to Year 1 awarded one child in their class a special merit badge for ‘Enjoyment’ – our value of the week.

    Teachers spoke about why this badge should be awarded. It was lovely to hear that Ayami always has a smile on her face and thoroughly enjoys school. Isaac was awarded the badge for enjoying his Dance lesson and Charles was awarded the badge for not only his sewing skills in his DT project but the fact that he was enjoying the task and helping others.

    Also in his DT lesson, Hal was getting ‘immense enjoyment’ from designing his vehicle. Lily was awarded the badge for her enjoyment to school life.

    Finally Year 3 were awarded a class merit for their enjoyment of the ‘crime task’ this week. More details of this on our Facebook page. Click here.

    French Assembly

    Today began with an assembly led by Mrs Douglass. Speaking about ‘Enjoyment’ as our new value. she led us through a variety of French playground songs and games, that children not only in France sing. Did you know there are 29 other countries that also speak French?

    Amazing! ……………yes, we were all surprised too!

    Mrs Douglass demonstrated the songs to the children with some Year 4 helpers and encouraged the children to sing them at playtime.

    At playtime many of the children were playing and singing the French songs!

    Great job Mrs Douglass!

    Communication Assembly

    Mr Savage came in today to deliver our assembly. He discussed with the children different ways of communicating. The children (and staff!) were amazed at some of the facts!

    • In 1914, in Scotland 2000 messages were put into bottles and into the sea. A bottle was found 98 years later bobbing around!
    • In 2005 84 million letters were sent EVERY day!
    • YouTube has 300 hrs of video uploaded every minute, every day!

    Mr Savage asked, are there more people than mobile phones in the world or more mobile phones than people?

    Image result for mobile phones or people

    ANSWER………….more mobile phones than people…..7.4 billion people and 8.4 billion phones! WOW!

    Mr Savage went onto compare the messages we write or send to praying. Praying can be a friendly chat to God.

    Jesus taught his people the ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ and we said this prayer together today.
