What We've Been Up To

Hello and welcome to our second blog.

On Wednesday and Thursday (the 21st and the 22nd of February) years 5 and 6 had their ESB exam 📃. Year 6 went first, and we were all very nervous but the examiner (Emma) made us all feel comfortable and after that, we were ready and raring to go! Year 5 had their exam in the afternoon and also all day on Thursday. We were all very happy to find out that every single one of us got a distinction which is the highest mark you can get!


Years 3 and 4 are having their poetry vanguard exam📃 towards the end of March and everybody wishes them the best of luck.

Year 4 also had a very intense football ⚽ match and a very muddy one too. Despite the circumstances, our school won 9-4! In Junior Games Club we were working on our speed-stacking, which involves special cups stacked in a specific order, and it was really hard but after lots of practice and hard work, we all got really good scores.

Year 3 also presented a wonderful assembly on the British Values and now everybody knows what they mean and how they keep us safe!


We also have a new polytunnel for the whole school to use in their forest school lessons. This is very exciting for all of us.


All throughout this week - 4th until 8th of March - we are selling Wonka Bars🍫. In five of them, there is a golden ticket which when you return it to the office you get a prize. All donations go to the PTA fund. Also on Thursday we dressed up as our favourite book characters.🧙 There was one winner from each class. Well done to everybody who took part.
