Tuesday 9th July saw Years R, 1 and 2 on their trip around the village. They all had a wonderful time exploring their surroundings. Years R and 1 saw Percy the park keeper, who had caught a fish. Year 2 found an old coin, which they were very excited about. They all said how they really enjoyed their team work activities, especially with the parachute. All classes enjoyed some time in the park on the zip wire, the trampoline where they found some frogs and playing on all the other equipment.
On Wednesday 10th July Year 6 had a fantastic time at Play2Day for their last trip in primary school. The trip was full of energy, playing tag and man hunt at the soft play centre.
Year 5 also had a lovely trip around Manea on Thursday 11th July. They took maps and compasses and applied their geography skills and knowledge to find the physical and human features of the local area. They finished off by enjoying a picnic at the pit.
This week the children from KS1 enjoyed a coaching session from Simon Millward and Scott MacNeil. Scott and Simon are coaches of a local football team.
The children had an amazing time!
Year one had brilliantly performed their assembly this week. They told the story of 'How to Catch a Star' Oliver Jeffers.
They have been working over the past couple of weeks to perform this story and have been writing all about it in their literacy lessons.
The children enjoyed sharing their story and all of their hard work with their visitors.
Miss Froggatt, led a whole school celebration assembly on Monday 28th January to share a cheque presented by Mr Buttriss of Metalcraft Ltd in Chatteris who donated £250 to the school towards books for the library.
As part of their work on developing vocabulary, we have been raising money for our library to increase the variety of books to encourage reluctant readers to develop a keen interest in reading.
‘The Metalcraft Community Fund was set up to support projects such as this therefore we are delighted to have been able to provide some funding. Given that more than 50% of our employees are from our local area it’s vital we invest in our potential employees of the future.’
A governor of the school has contacted many local businesses to ask for their support for this project and would also like to thank
City 1st Truck tyre
Fengrain Ltd Marketing
The governing body would also like to inform any other company that would like to donate to the school for this valuable cause to please contact the school office on 01354 680293.
