Yarty Class were busy decorating their ‘Great Fire of London’ houses. They have been using real money to purchase paint, glue and other materials. They have had to budget which has been fascinating: Seeing 7 and 8 year olds updating their bank statement, running a shop, dealing with supply and demand issues and even giving each other cut-price deals on second hand supplies has been fascinating. So much learning engagement!

Our Summer Term Forest School sessions take place offsite once a week for five weeks. The whole day takes place outdoors, and the children take part in a range of making, creating, and exploring tasks. The sessions will form the stimulus for most of our learning back at school, hopefully giving the children a rich and challenging experience to reflect on.
Once again thank all the children of the school who have done us proud and given us a production to be proud of. It takes a lot of hard work from the children and the school staff to assemble these productions and produce a piece of such fine quality that includes every single child in the school.
For the fourth year running we have achieved the Gold Award for school games – a fabulous achievement for a small village school. We are so proud to be able to nurture children with the enthusiasm for an active lifestyle.
Another triumph in our Sporting Events – we have won the Year 5/6 swimming gala again and I believe that our school is the only one to be on the shield so far! Congratulations to all those children and thanks to Mrs Quick for training the children for the event. To achieve such continued success takes dedication from all involved and a commitment to advocating a healthy lifestyle. In the news recently were statistics regarding increasing levels of obesity in children. If we can encourage healthy lifestyles – being active and eating sensibly – we are on our way to sending children out into the world with the knowledge and attitude to live long and healthy lives.
