This week the whole school are having fun with a science week. Keep a check on the website to see some of the things we've been up to.
On Tuesday afternoon, four teachers from the Science department came to work with our children. We had a lot of fun making cones, planes, kites and spinners. All the staff and children enjoyed the afternoon and we hope to see them again soon.
All children from classes 3,4,5 and 6 went to Explore @Bristol. A fun time was had by all and we learnt lots about light, shadow, magnetism, forces and much more. Go to Special events to read the children's views
During the week we spent a morning with a group of student teachers. Children from Year 5 and 6 worked through a series of practicals to learn about gravity, electricity, absorption, bubbles and lots more. Look at the pictures to see all the Science going on!
... or was it the great school swim. The heavens opened as we all started the run but the stoic children and their teachers carried on regardless. Well done to everyone.
The threatening skies didn't dampen our spirits when Bishop Tim came to help us celebrate our birthday with Reverend Ringer and Mr Sheppard. We marked the day with a special service and the raising up of our new school flag. Thanks to the parish for donating the flag pole.

Waving Class 5 off to a very exciting week in Lesson House, Langton Matravers. Have a lovely time; wish we were coming with you!
Every child and adult in our school produced a portrait of themselves to create this magnificent Hall display. Aren't we a gorgeous lot - although I am a bit worried by the the"gruffalo" in the top right - can you spot who I mean?
This autumn we visited a Hindu temple in visit to learn all about the Hindu religion. Click on our picture to see what a fantastic day we had.
Inspite of the incredibly inclement weather we had a super Christmas enjoyed by all. The children were treated to a visit by Santa plus a myriad of other activites such as games, chocolate fountain, bouncy castle etc. Thanks to all those who gave up their time to help with this worthwhile event, it was much appreciated. We raised over £1,000 towards our new play trail which is magnificent.
