World Book Day

We had a fantastic day on Thursday, celebrating the world of books. We started with parents joining children in school for our Bookie Breakfast. A fantastic atmosphere! The children made a fantastic effort with their costumes – very creative. Many classes enjoyed a snippet of a Matilda performance written by our very own Mrs Chapman and Mrs Bridle. Our pupils ‘dressed a door’ as a book, too – see our website. Other activities included writing a postcard to Mr Applegate about how their favourite book character demonstrates one our of school values or learning behaviours. A busy – but fantastic – day 🙂

World Book Day Update!

Tomorrow is World Book Day and we are super excited!

Just a quick note about the Big Booky Breakfast – 8.30-9.00…

Your child must go straight to their own classroom to register and order their lunch with their class teacher and you are invited to stay with them to share breakfast and some books together.

If you have more than one child and would like to read with them all together, they must still register with their own class teachers and they will need to take a breakfast item from their own classroom. You can then use one of the classrooms to read together.

If the fire alarm goes off during breakfast, the children need to go and line up on the playground in their usual places to be registered by their class teacher.

Remember, books aren’t just for bedtime! 

Careers Fair 2019

A huge thank you to all of our contributors at our first-ever Careers Fair. The children were magnificent- see the photos and quotes below!

“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit the school and meet the wonderful pupils. Their enthusiasm and curiosity was evident for all to see; there was a great atmosphere throughout the event.”

“All of the children were polite, respectful and keen to learn about our work. It was good to hear that some of the pupils already had an understanding of learning disability and autism and the support that someone may need but it was good to raise that awareness in others too.”

“So many of the children had fantastic aspirations from becoming footballers, dance teachers, doctors, nurses and even Vets. There was a lovely young lady who even said she wanted to work to help people with anxiety and depression which showed great compassion and kindness towards others.”

“The children were very polite, enthusiastic and inquisitive – they asked some very good questions. All of which added to our enjoyment of the morning and we would love to come back again.”

“The buzz of the event in the hall was really good! I liked seeing how the children interacted with all of the adults in a positive and polite manner. So many smiling faces says a lot about the success of the event!”

“My favourite question from one of your year four students was “who was your first inspiration for what you do and why” – a really well thought out question!”

“We all thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and were so impressed with the manners of all of the children who came to see us. They asked relevant questions, listened attentively to our replies and all asked permission before taking any of our freebies.”

“I was really impressed with the questions the children asked, how attentively they listened and their genuine interest in what they could learn about Occupational Therapy.”

“I was impressed with the Christian ethos of the school, from the start. In the Fair the children were showed interest, asked intelligent and relevant questions and listened politely to my replies and narratives, even when I may have droned on a bit. I hope that they were able to appreciate that helping others is rewarding and fun, for all involved.”

Careers Fair – Day 1

We had an excellent first day of our careers fair today. Thank you to our pupils who were impeccably behaved and asked great questions, our parents for supporting their children, and of course the volunteers who ran the stands. We look forward to tomorrow!
