School News from Miss Travis

This week

admin on: School News from Miss Travis

Well what a week we have had.  Earlier in the week class 3 held their Stone Age day.  During the day they designed and made outfits as well as building Stonehenge out of biscuits!  They had a wonderful time. 

A massive thank you to FODS who have bought us some new playground equipment and 6 new mini ipads.  This is really valuable and will mean that when the children are working on ipads in class the whole class will have one each.  Have a look at the FODS page for pictures of the children opening the present.  They were very very excited. 

We finished the week by planting our poppies.  Every child in school had made a poppy this week and discussed what it means.  We all then planted them, just inside the school grounds. It looks amazing. Pictures to follow.   Hopefully the weekend weather will not be too bad and the poppies will remain in tact over the weekend.

Have a wonderful weekend.

End of First Half Term

admin on: School News from Miss Travis

I cannot believe that we are already at the end of the first half term (and therefore half way to Christmas!).  We have had a wonderful first term which was rounded off today by Class 5 who performed beautifully in our Assembly.  They taught use all about the Ancient Egyptians.  

Well done also to Isaac and Noah who were the first winners of the FODS Above and Beyond award for their work sponsoring Guide Dogs.  

A big thank you to all those who attended the FODS AGM.  It is always very humbling to see how hard this small group of parents work on behalf of all the children here and I am very grateful for that.  The work they have put into all the fundraisers has ensured that the children here have the best possible school experience.  Look at the FODS page for information on how you can get involved or events that are coming up.

Have a wonderful and restful holiday and I will see everyone back again on Monday 5th November.

New extension

admin on: School News from Miss Travis

We have had a lovely week in school which has included the opening of our extension.  The Year 2 children have been very excited using their new facilities today.  During the next few months we will be replacing the carpet and moving the furniture around in class 2 to make the most of all the new space. 

Open Day has taken place today (Friday).  I was very proud of our Year 5 children who showed all the visitors around.  They were polite, articulate and a real credit to the school.  Well done children.

Well done to all the children who participated in our Harvest service it was a wonderful experience and I was very proud of all of our performers.  Thank you for all your donations of food and wateraid money. 

Well done also to the Nursery and Reception children who also celebrated Harvest by singing some lovely songs and celebrating the harvest.  Thank you for all your donations.  

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Building work

admin on: School News from Miss Travis

This summer we have had lots of building work in school.  Our Year 6 classroom has a new cloakroom and toilet and a door that goes directly into school.  The entrance area has been updated with a new diabled toilet and a Deputy office.   Nursery have also had new toilets and this includes an adult/disabled toilet. 

The new cloakroom and toilets block at the back of year 2 is progressing well and should be finished by October half term. 

And finally, much to Mr Wood's pleasure, the hall floor has been stripped back and re-varnished.  It is looking lovely.
