Bookfeast visit for Years 3 to 5
On a very rainy Wednesday 17th June, Years 3 to 5 visited St Hugh's College, Oxford to meet the children's author Claire Barker.
We all enjoyed listening to her speak about her inspirations to write (she has always loved reading) and we all enjoyed creating a new Pirate character with her.
She told us that she had been a teaching assistant and was frustrated by the lack of exciting books around. This inspired her to start writing her own stories, the first of which, Wishbone Pepper- Ghost Dog, we have been enjoying at snack and story time. She reminded us that it is never too late to start writing and that it is very, very easy to quickly develop a character and a setting.
So maybe we can all have a go!
RAF Falcons Trip
On Friday 5th May, Year 5 and 6 took a trip to the RAF base to watch the Falcons. Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, the Falcons were unable to parachute down, although I think watching the C-17 fly over, exploring inside the chinook, meeting and receiving utographs from the Falcons and learning how they pack their parachutes more than made up for it! The beautiful weather and ice-cream probably helped too!
What a fantastic time we had at Easter School this year! The children were enthusiastic, hardworking and positively delightful. We designed our own holiday resorts, carried out some percentage work on how much we would have to pay our 'staff', created leaflets based on our resorts and used our fractions knowledge to share lunch out fairly. Oh and we enjoyed a well-deserved Easter egg hunt!
Well done Year 6s for being such a pleasure and thank you parents for encouraging them to come!
Visit from Robert Courts MP
Our new MP, Robert Courts, came to school on 6th April to meet our Key Stage 2 children and explain who he is, what he does, and how they too can become an MP or even Prime Minister one day. He answered all their questions and ended with a photo with our school council (who he described as the equivalent of Parliament).
More triumph for our netball team!
Our amazing netball team came third out of eight teams at the county final in Abingdon. Well done to everyone, and thank you to Mrs Rae and her helpers for organising it.
