A DAY AT THE ZOO







THE YEAR TWO CHILDREN HAD A FUN DAY OUT AT CHESTER ZOO


OUT AND ABOUT


THE RECEPTION CHILDREN HAVE BEEN HAVING GREAT FUN DURING THEIR FOREST SCHOOLS SESSIONS THIS TERM. HER ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE MUD FACES THEY MADE.

LITTLE VISITORS



Some ducklings came to visit us. It was such a hot day that some of them decided to go for a swim in the water tray!





 SPRING TERM 2017

COMIC RELIEF



The children donned red noses and red outfits for Comic Relief. Mrs Fairclough presented a special assembly with the help of some of the children in Year One and Year Two to tell everyone about the causes their fund raising would help to support.



AHOY THERE!





The Year One children really enjoyed their "Pirates" topic this term. At the end of the topic they presented an assembly about what they had been learning for their relatives and enjoyed a fun packed "Pirate Day", when they all dressed the part.

WORLD BOOK DAY



The children had an amazing day on World Book Day. They shared their favourite stories and used them to inspire some artwork. Some of the children from Wellfield Juniors read stories to them too.

   

There were some fantastic costumes to be seen - and some rather strange ones too!

 


To end the week with a treat we were thrilled to invite the illustrator Penny Neville Lee into school to do some masterclasses for our Key Stage One pupils and to present an assembly. Penny showed the children some of her illustrations and demonstrated how she draws some of her characters. The children all loved watching how Penny's drawings were transformed and they created some rather good ones of their own too.



 
 
 
 
 


ON BEHALF OF THE STAFF AND CHILDREN WE WOULD LIKE TO SAY A HUGE THANK YOU TO PENNY FOR OFFERING UP HER TIME TO US AND GIVING THE CHILDREN SUCH A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY.



 

NEW NURSERY BUILDING

 
We are thrilled to announce that we have received funding from the Education Funding Authority to build a second Nursery classroom. The new classroom will be an extension to the current Nursery building and is expected to be ready for September 2017. This will allow us to double our number of spaces available for three to four year olds from 26 to 52 children.

Please see the pictures of the plans below:-






 


AUTUMN TERM 2016


£8000 GRANT FROM TESCO!



Great news! Our joint bid with Wellfield Junior School for funding from TESCO's "Bags of Help" scheme has been successful and we are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded £8000. The funds will be used to establish a growing area on the school field. This will house an allotment with raised beds and a poly tunnel. The children from the infant school and the junior school will be using this area to grow food which will be used in the school kitchens.


UPDATES FROM NEPAL


Mrs Preston came to school to share the latest news from Nawa Asha Griha, (The Home of New Hopes), in Nepal. She gave us an update on Mukti, the little girl we sponsor, and showed us a video of the children celebrating Teacher's Day in Mukti's school.




On Friday, 18th November the children and staff came to school wearing spotty clothes and accessories and brought in donations for Children in Need. The children enjoyed lots of fun activities in their classrooms and we managed to raise over £200.






OVER £750 RAISED!








OUR MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING WAS A HUGE SUCCESS - WE MANAGED TO RAISE OVER £750 FOR THIS WONDERFUL CHARITY.

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO GOT INVOLVED.




Our shoe collection for the charity Sal's Shoes was a great success. We have collected over 14 boxes of shoes for them. These shoes will be passed on to children who have no shoes of their own in other countries.






KEEPING BUSY



It is really lovely to see how well our youngest pupils are settling in. To find out more about what is going on in school go to the year group pages in the Children's section of this site - or follow us on facebook and twitter.

What do children and young people say to look out for:

 

35% of the children and young people we asked think Minecraft can be risky. The top 3 concerns were:

  • hacking
  • strangers talking to you
  • bullying. 

 

Why kids like it:

 

The top 3 reasons why children and young people liked Minecraft were:

  • it's fun
  • creative
  • challenging
 
 
Our advice to parents and carers - 
Some parents and carers think that as long as they tell their child to only link up with people they know their child is safe. The reality is that strangers can still contact your child and they are likely to use a false identity. In addition to this it is unlikely that children this young are able to make well informed decisions about how to manage their interactions online.

The best way to deal with this is to not allow your child to engage in any online activities that allow them to interact with others over the internet.
