Maths Week

We had a special visitor as part of Maths week. One of our parents came into school to talk about how he uses Maths in his job as an architect. We were all amazed by the houses he built and want to be architects when we grow up. 

School Attendance

We are working very hard with our pupils and families to improve school attendance. We are now monitoring which classes have the best attendance. This week year 4 won with 98% - well done superstars!

Well done to everyone who completed the 2022 TCS Mini London Marathon. Pupils in each class could run, jog or walk the 2.6 miles. They have received a commemorative pin badge as a well done! 

MATHS and ART! Maths Week England 2022!

For Maths Week England, each child from every class produced a piece of Maths related artwork.  These ranged from Repeated Patterns in Reception to Geometric Patterns in Year 6 and the children really enjoyed creating their masterpieces!  Today, they had the opportunity to visit the Art Gallery and view the fantastic pieces of artwork on display in the Hall.  They had some interesting discussions about their favourite works of art! 

Anti-bullying assembly

Gary and Simon from Holy Trinity visited our school and spoke about how bullying wasn't the right thing to do. They spoke about Jesus and how he would do the right thing. We shared an important message:

Do to others as you would have them do to you!
