This week we are looking at supporting our friends and class mates, Anti-Bullying and how to work as a team.
We started the week with an assembly led by School Council and using the book “We all saw a Cat”. Reception and Year 1 then made their own class cat!
On Wednesday, Reception had fun with the parachute, learning to work as a team. Later in the afternoon Reception to Year 5 shared story books together.
We welcomed Olympic swimmer Joanne Jackson and hammer thrower Sarah Holt to school this afternoon to deliver our athlete workshops.
All pupils enjoyed the 4 exercises, spotty dogs, press up, leg slides and star jumps.
Year 4 had a wonderful visit to the Celtic Harmony site on Friday 19th October, experiencing life in the Stone Age using a bow and arrow and learning to weave baskets.
Reception class have been busy this morning making friendship biscuits for their buddy.
We enjoyed a really fantastic Sports Day at OMA
The weather stayed dry and the sun even shone during the afternoon. Once again, the day was organised extremely impressively by our PE lead Mrs Davis. I am also very grateful to all my other colleagues for playing their part in ensuring that everything ran so smoothly. These include everyone who was running an event as well as Mrs Moore, who did a sterling job doing the announcements.
We are also very grateful to all of our parents who attended and those who took part. There was a definite competitive edge to the races in the afternoon especially the adult ones!
The children and staff created a wonderful sense of House loyalty and pride. We had lots of fun and good humour as well as the serious competition.
The day was marked by some remarkable individual performances of excellence but also by many pupils who, whilst not natural athletes, did their best for their House. We are very proud of them all. In the end the overall winners were Excellence (Blue House with 83 points), narrowly followed by Resilience Yellow Hose) with 79%, closely followed by Respect (Green. House) with 78 points day and Self-worth (Red House) with 59 points.
Reception class have been making the most of the lovely weather this term, playing outside with the water and sand. They have also been exploring Autumn, looking at leaves and conkers.
Year 6 have enjoyed a visit to the Science department at Ormiston Bushfield Academy as part of their Cornerstone topic, Bloodheart.
They had the opportunity to dissect a heart and learn about how it works.
Not a dry eye in the house for our Year 6 leavers assembly! Good luck as you move on to Year 7, we’ll miss you all!
