Blue Peter Badge Winner

Congratulations to ‘A’ in Class 4 for becoming a double Blue Peter badge winner!
‘A’ received her first blue badge for sending in a model of the mud run that had been shown on the programme. A few weeks later she sent in a copy of a Van Gogh painting she had drawn and was awarded a rare silver badge.
Well done ‘A’ on your artistic achievements and your well deserved reward.

Fruit and Veg

As part of a government healthy eating scheme, all children in KS1 are offered a free piece of fruit or vegetable every day.
When children move up to KS2 the free fruit is no longer available to them but as a healthy school we gladly encourage them to bring a piece of fresh fruit from home to eat at play time. This is a healthy option for those children who might be feeling a little hungry mid morning or mid afternoon, as well as benefiting from the obvious recommendation of eating at least ‘5-a-day’.
Children in KS2 can bring in any  of the following fresh items – apple, pear, banana, carrot, seedless grapes, easy peel citrus (satsumas, clementines), strawberries or mange tout peas (no dried fruit or fruit chews/bars). Due to the risk of allergies please do not send any kiwi fruits into school.
If you would like your child to eat more fruit please give them one item to pop in their book bag ready for play time.

Thank you

Show and Tell

Show and tell is an important part of school life. It encourages children to be confident in front of an ‘audience’ and to be able to talk about something that is important to them. Everybody loves to learn something about their friends, whether it is about their hobby, a pet, a holiday, art work or something else.
Class 4 had their first show and tell session this week with three very different topics. ‘N’ brought in a photo of herself and her sister with their unusual pet rabbits, Amber (a continental giant) and Arnold (a French Lop). ‘A’ brought her souvenir photo album which she received when she went on a family tour of Old Trafford, the Manchester United ground. ‘H’ brought in a bottle of ‘potion’ he had made and was very specific in explaining exactly what it contained.
After talking about their items all three children answered lots of questions from their interested class mates.
