The Year 6 children  headed off to St Birinus, Didcot on Tuesday for the annual Moon Buggy Challenge, where once again we won the best Moon buggy design – we do have to keep raising our game each year.  Well done to the Year 6 for the time they put in to their designs and the dedication to make the finished product.

 

 

 

It certainly was an exciting start to the week as the school headed off to Cadbury World, a great visit to supplement our Big Write theme of Chocolate.  Everyone had a wonderful time and I was very proud to hear that they were good ambassadors for the school.   Thank you to the staff for organizing the trip and to all the other helpers who gave up their day to join our adventures.Take a look in the gallery to see some photos of the day.

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Squirrel and Fox classes started the week with  taster sessions for All Star Cricket.  Each class was able to work with the coach to develop their cricket skills and it was great to see the children having a fantastic time.

Julia Donaldson, the celebrated author, was a special guest in the KS1 concert at the Oxfordshire Music Centre on Wednesday, which was also attended by Squirrel Class.  The children had been learning the songs and making their mouse masks.  We were able to hear a performed version of the Gruffalo with Julia playing the mouse. 

Yesterday, Owl class had the experience of entering the Sun Dome, which took up residence in the hall, the children were able to look up to the stars and focus on the sun exploring the science around projects that are looking to the sun. Remember to ask someone from Owl Class for an explanation. 

The Spring Fair helped by the wonderful weather and prepared by the brilliant PTA  had a wonderful turnout, it was great to see so many people in the grounds and school.  A big thank you to the PTA, teachers and children who prepared and worked on the stalls – I really enjoyed myself, even with the photo evidence of my attempt at the dressing up game.

Next Friday is our May dancing event at 1.30pm and everyone is very welcome. Please do come along if you can to watch the hard work the children and teachers have put into this event.

     

 

I hope you had a great Easter break and enjoyed eating your Easter eggs and as always the wonderful weather has welcomed us back to school.   We start an important term for our Year 6 children as they approach their SATs week in May.

Our Big Write theme this term is all based around ‘Chocolate’ – this time we are planning a big adventure linked to this theme towards the end of the Summer term, which should be very exciting.  It makes me hungry thinking about the topic.
