This term the whole school have been looking at the works of Roald Dahl. All the classes have been up to all sorts of things across the whole curriculum.
Reception have been making dream jars from The BFG.
Year 1 have made lollipops from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Year 2 have also been creating their own dream jars.
In Design and Technology year 4 have made puppets of their favourite characters.
Year 5 have also been sewing scenes from their favourite Roald Dahl books.
Year 6 have made customised wooden chairs for the characters from James and The Giant Peach. They also sewed some of their favourite characters, and have made a Roly Poly bird from The Enourmous Crocodile.
In Computing for the last couple of weeks of term Year 6 started looking at creating their own Christmas themed stop motion animations. Although they only had a couple of hours I think they have turned out really well!
The Christmas Fayre was a huge success again this year. There was lots going on from face painting to crafts to games to shopping and much more. Well done to the Year 6’s who designed and built all the games in the games room. I hear it was very busy! Santa in his Winter Wonderland was fantastic and incredibly popular. And Kingsley joined us from Reading FC to promote the amazing prize, ‘Be an RFC mascot for the day’. Congratulations to Isla and Travis who won that! Hope you’ll have an amazing time!
Everyone had a fantastic day on Friday raising money for #CiN Around £850 was raised altogether so well done everyone!
There have been sales of wristbands after school, £1 donations for wearing non uniform and of course the usual inter class competition. This year the class who bought in the most loose change won an early lunch served by Princess Gallagher! The lucky winners were year 4!
And the winner is……
As part of our Dinosaurs and Birds of Prey topic we arranged a visit from a local falconry company.
The children met Wiggy the Barn Owl and were able to stroke her, hold Bourneville the Kestrel on their hand and watch Echo the Harris Hawk fly between the adults.
It was an amazing visit and the children loved it!
This year the whole school took part in a sponsored mile around the playground. They could walk, run, jog, skip or hop! Many children did a lot more than 1 mile! In total the school raised £1786 for the Sport Relief Charity. Well done everyone. #sr16
