EYFS – Health and Fitness Week

As part of our Health and Fitness week, Reception took part in lots of exciting activities to develop their understanding of different ways to keep fit and healthy! They designed and made healthy fruit kebabs and tried delicious banana smoothies. They also took part in a relaxing yoga session, lots of fun team games and developed their skills using different PE equipment.

EYFS – Hand Washing Session

The school nurse came to visit the infants to teach the children how to wash their hands properly. The children enjoyed washing a special gel off their hands and then placing them under the light box to see if they’d missed any spots!

Sports Update

The school team did us proud on their first outing at The Outwood Academy. They became joint winners and now go through to the finals to be held at Brookfield School on Wednesday 18th October. Good Luck boys!

Girls Soccerfest

We took an enthusiastic group of 12 girls from years 3 and 4 to The Outwood Academy for the girls soccerfest event. There was an inspiring special guest who plays for the England Under 19 squad! The girls had a great afternoon (despite the rain) and all enjoyed learning new football skills. Well done!

Bulb Planting in Holymoorside

On Friday 13th October, our Eco council helped members of our community plant Spring bulbs in the centre of the village.

They worked really hard and are  looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labours in the Spring. Well done to them all.

New School Year 2017/18

Our first assembly was all about how we can grow our brain and how to be the best learner we can.

We invited ‘Professor Ivan Idea’ to our assembly, to help us understand the chemicals in our brain and to explain how they help us learn.

The teachers and teaching assistants also took part in a quiz about the brain. Some were brainier than others!!

Here’s to fantastic year of learning.

Tennis success! Y3 & Y4

Children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a tennis tournament after having coaching lessons in school. They got through the heats and into the final, where they came a brilliant 2nd overall.
A big well done to them all.

Key Stage 2 French Day

We ended our year of learning French in Key stage 2, with a special day to show off our language skills and celebrate all things French.
We had a fantastic assembly where children performed French songs and taught us the phrases and words they had learnt. After the assembly, we enjoyed a French breakfast and spent the day learning more about France and the language.
