Reverend Andrew visited to lead a collective worship. He told us about the story of Saint Telemachus and we thought about how it is sometimes difficult but always right to stand up for what we believe in.
We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Thompson from Filby Post Office for their very kind donation of £500 from the proceeds of their Charity Shed for our outdoor play equipment and reflection area. This will really help us to quickly purchase all we need.
A team of eager KS1 pupils showed off their teamwork and passing and dribbling techniques this week by taking part in our cluster’s KS1 Football event. Everyone thought it was good fun and even though they felt a bit nervous to begin with, all announced trying the different skills was great.
We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day. We took part in different activities and enjoyed sharing stories with our circles groups.
They have been matching digital, analogue and written times.
In English we have been learning about rhyming words. As a class we followed the story Zog by Julia Donaldson and filled in the missing rhyming words to complete the sentences.
We have been learning about poetry in English. During our forest school session we used natural objects found in the garden as inspiration for a poem. Everyone chose their favourite object and contributed to our shared poems. We hope you enjoy reading them.
