Bedtime Story Challenge

Today the children in the Infant School had a special assembly to celebrate our Bedtime Story Challenge.

Over 60 children handed in their completed challenge sheets after having a bedtime story every day during March.  We are so proud of all of them and want to say a big 'thank you' to all of the mums, dads, nannies, grandads, brothers, sisters and everyone else who shared stories over the month.

Mrs Jones, our English Subject Leader, presented a certificate and book to everyone who had handed in their sheet. As part of the challenge, the children could write about their favourite book and draw their favourite character.  Alex in year 2 won a special prize for making Mrs Jones laugh with his work.  

Well done to everyone who shared a story in March.  Books are brilliant - keep on reading!

Easter Colouring Competition

The winners of the Easter colouring competition were announced in assemblies today. Congratulations to our overall winners - Phoebe from Giraffe class and Chloe from Venus class.  They both put a lot of work into their designs and Chloe's egg even included a game - can you find all the hidden eggs?

We were  very proud of our five runners up in each school, who also received a prize.  Mrs Ensor and Mrs Wilby loved looking at all of the entries - they said it was very hard to choose the winners and they wished that everyone could have won! 

Here are the winning eggs:

No more straws!

We are very proud of Sophia in year 5 and her brother Alex in year 2.  They were so moved by a news report they saw about the harm that plastic can do to sea creatures, that they wrote a letter to Mrs Ensor and Mrs Wilby, asking for the school to stop using plastic straws.

A lot of children in the infant school have milk every day, and this used to come in individual cartons, each with a plastic straw that was thrown away after use.

Since Sophia and Alex raised this issue, our milk is now delivered in large, recyclable bottles and the children drink out of reusable beakers.

Sophia is very happy about the change that we have made. She says 'I watched a video of a turtle who was hurt by a straw and I felt upset.  Now I want to get rid of other kinds of plastic - I am still thinking of how.'

Here they are with the new beakers.
