  • World Book Day

    Published 29/03/22

    This year the theme was ‘Our favourite Bedtime Stories’. The children came into school dressed in their pyjamas with a teddy, ready for an eventful day. We enjoyed seeing pictures of the children enjoying their bedtime stories from home.


    The day started with an ‘all star’ production of ‘Once upon a dream’ acted by our wonderful team at Shirley.  This was about a boy who had a dream about his bedtime story and got transported to a world of book characters. The children loved seeing their teachers dressed up as different book characters and were inspired to act out scenes in their classrooms.

    Back in the classroom, the children continued their acting skills and they acted out scenes from the popular children’s book ‘Where the wild things are. They created pieces of artwork from the story and wrote their very own versions.

    The children took part in a Story Spoon competition where they decorated wooden spoons inspired by their favourite book characters. Congratulations to the winners below:

    Rabbits: Norman

    Moles: Catlyn

    Owls: Lucy

    Year group winner: Areesha from Rabbits

  • School Council

    Published 11/09/18

    School Council have been working hard on planning our new PE warm up circuit this year.  We talked with the school council at the beginning of the year about what they felt needed to be improved in the school.  They felt the playground needed to help them improve their independence, perseverance and co-operation skills more.  We have been looking at how to keep ourselves safe but perseverance with new risks too.  

    School council were instrumental in planning the apparatus we chose for our Circuit on our playground.  They thought carefully about what they would do on the apparatus and what skills they would help or challenge their friends.  

    School Council are very proud of our new apparatus and belive it has made a big difference to playtimes, PE sessions and encouraging more physical activity throughout the school day.
