Savvy Dance Experience for Year 4

Classes 9 and 10 had the privilege of a free Savvy Dance session at the wonderful Savvy Dance Studios in Foundry Square.  Each Class got to experience a session of Commercial dancing , which incorporated a bouncy and poppy dance routine.  Claire was fantastic at getting all sorts of contortions and body shapes from the students!

 

Upstairs, Charlotte led an upbeat yoga-style dance routine, which had the children showing off their flexibility and capacity to travel across the dance floor.

 

The afternoon was amazingly fun! Jay, Class 9

This was a brilliant opportunity for the children to draw upon the expert tutoring from Savvy Dance Studios and the students were incredibly grateful for this wonderful opportunity.  Thank you Savvy!!

 

Welcome Back Year 2!

What an exciting first day it has been in year two for both children and teachers.  All children have had a great first day back and from the smiles on their faces you could tell  that they were all thrilled to be back at school playing and interacting with their friends.

The children were also very delighted with the new play equipment and refurbished fire pit.

Class 6 have been learning in the great outdoors

Class 6 have enjoyed learning outdoors.

Class 6 have had a great start to the new term. They are really enjoying taking their learning outside where they have been able to calculate a variety of number problems and then discuss their reasoning.

The children have also been busy collecting and recording facts about polar bears and discovering who built the first castles in the U.K.

Well done Class 6, I am very proud of you all for making a great start to the new term

Sports Day 2020

2020 brought around a slightly different kind of sports day. Over 100 of our pupils took part in first ever Rainbow games, both at home and in school.

The day consisted of children competing in for their houses in a range of throwing, jumping and running activities alongside some cross-curricular olympic themed activities such as designing/cooking a healthy meal; researching one of the continents; creating banner and posters to show their support for their house.

A brilliant event with many children engaging in the activities. Over 18000 points were shared between the 4 houses with less than 100 separating first and second.

Results are announced in the below video!
