 Meet the Dinosaur

Science Week

Enterprise Day

The children were very enterprising during this week: they worked together to create activities & make things to sell at our grand enterprise day!  Each class was given a small budget and then had to see if they could make a profit.  The money raised was used to enhance their learning, with some donated to a charity of the children’s choice .

Enterprise Day

100 Day in conjunction with 100 years of Remembrance

The children focused on the number 100 day today to highlight the 100 years of remembrance.  They created poppies, worked around the number 100 and also created a living number 100 on the playground.

Community News

The children of the School Council visited the patrons of Kent View Community Centre.  They spent time chatting with the older clients and also enjoyed singing for them too.  Both the clients and children had a wonderful time and we can’t wait to visit with them again.  Click the link below to view the photos:

 KS2 Spelling & Grammar Competition – We were privileged to send four of our pupils to take part in a Key Stage 2 Grammar and spelling competition. They competed as a team against 9 other local primary schools in a bid to reach the grand final. The children were fantastic, achieving the highest scores out of all of the schools in the speed spelling and punctuation rounds. Overall, they finished in 3rd place. A fantastic result!!


Number Day – click here to see some photos of this day’s activity. We invited parents and carers to come into school and share our Number Day with us.  There were lots of quizzing and activities – all number based.  The children and staff also dressed with a number theme.

We held another annual Enterprise Day and it was a resounding success!  As normal the children from each class had a budget and created an activity, or made some crafty items or tasty treats to sell at the Enterprise Day sale.  The idea was to make a profit.  The children had to work out what to spend and then what to charge, to make a reasonable profit. The older children then also helped the younger children to sell and buy some items during the event.  We are always so proud of everyone who takes part and the healthy competition to make the largest profit!  The proceeds are split between chosen charities and other good causes chosen by the children themselves.  Click the image above to view the photos.

The Fabulous Glee Club were invited to sing at the local Vange Community Christmas Extravaganza and despite a slight technical hitch, they were a great hit! Well done to all, we are very proud!

And here  is a thank you letter from the Vange Community Christmas Extravaganza: Good Morning Miss Gilmartin
