We launched our new currency this week and our bank and shop are now open for business!
Children in years 1 to 6 have been given the opportunity to earn 'Durrington Dosh' for showing consistent green behaviour in school (Reception children will start this after Christmas).
Any money earned can be saved in the bank or spent in the Durrington Allsorts Shop, where prices start from 3dd.
Lots of children have already opened bank accounts and we cannot wait to see who will be the first customer in the shop.
Today the children took part in our Race for Life and either walked, hopped, skipped, rolled or ran the 1km course around the school field in aid of Cancer Research UK!
Today children from Nursery all the way up to Year 6 have been taking part in our Sponsored Dance-a-thon!
Today is Red Nose Day. The children all look great in their mufti clothes and there have been some fantastic Red Nose Day outfits.
We had collection buckets on the playground this morning. We will let you know the total once we have finished counting.
Here are a few of our amazing looks today
Science week has got off to an awesome start! Sublime Science arrived ready to rock with five amazing workshops. In the photos Graphite class are making slime and sherbet (not mixed). Teia's face speaks a thousand words about the effectiveness of the sherbet!
Heron and Swan class got busy in the wildlife area this afternoon. They took part in pond dipping, bug hunting and tree identification. They found a frog and a smooth newt in the pond as well as many other insects both in and out of the pond. Willow class have been making salt crystal snowflakes, whilst Oak class made a non-Newtonian fluid by mixing cornflour and water. Many other scientific activities have been taking place across the school and by the end of the week, all children from year 1 to year 6 will have met the Sublime scientists.
