Going for Gold

We are very excited to be continuing our work with the Art of Brilliance and children across the school are still benefiting from workshops aimed at building resilience and self belief. We have already earned ourselves the status of being an "Outstandingly Happy School" by taking part in this programme.

In addition, we have signed up to working towards Brilliant School’ certification. This involves practically implementing a plan to spread the positive ripple-effect across the wider school community by completing a series of tasks and activities that could earn us bronze, silver or gold status. 

Our CARE Ambassadors have launched this by asking the children to complete a photo collage that sets out how they would like their life to be positive. We are looking forward to seeing pictures of all the exciting things the children would like to do/see/become.

Throughout the year teachers will set further tasks that will count towards our going for gold status so watch this space!

Bella and Charlotte have started their own baking business during their spare time! They have put together a presentation of things they need to do, created a logo and have started to think about the maths involved with making a profit! What a fabulous idea - well done!

Emmet Update

Emmet, our Educational Assistance Dog in training has been working very hard on his training this term and is making great progress.

He is learning to refine some tricks with one of the children taking over the lead with the training and another child is helping him in his quest to respond to children reading to him, which is going really well. We are being supported by a local trainer as well. 

Emmet has also been going on walks with small groups of children every week, which everyone involved has enjoyed immensely. Today he went around the classes to say Merry Christmas and to show off some tricks. 

The War of the Worlds - Year/6

In Year 5/6 we have been studying the War of the Worlds, while the teachers have had their planning time. Mrs McSweeney & I have been so amazed by their poems and sketches!

Here is a small selection!

Year 3/4 Tapestry

 Over the last two weeks, the three Year 3/4 classes have been very busy sewing a class tapestry. 

Their collaborative piece has been inspired by The Bayeux Tapestry that we have been looking at to finish our topic on the Anglo-Saxons. 

Each class came up with the overall design and then individually sewed their own contribution using cross stitch. We are so impressed with their finished products.

Here are the Honeybees:

And the Turtles:

And finally Giraffes:
