Sports Day 2015

PLEASE SEE THE  INFORMATION LEAFLET IN THS NEWSLETTER SECTION ABOUT CHANGES TO THE FORMAT FOR THIS YEARS SPORTS DAY.

 

In order for sports day to run smoothly and safely for all children we ask that you stick to the following guidelines:

  • All children need to have appropriate PE kit, trainers or well-fitting plimsolls and a sun hat or cap.
  • If you wish your child to wear sunscreen, please apply this before school in the morning. You will not have access to your child during the event.
  • All children should have a bottle of water to take up to the field with them. Cartons or bottles of juice, snacks etc are not permitted during the sports day.
  • The school building will be locked while everyone is up on the field so there will be no access for parents to use the toilet facilities. 
  • When sports day is finished the children will all walk back to school with their classes and you may collect them from the usual places. We would also really appreciate help to clear equipment from the field after the event!

Thank you for your cooperation. A reminder also that the PTA will be selling refreshments up at the field and ice lollies near the school gates at home time. There will be NO AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS on this day.

FOR SAFETY REASONS PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE LANE OR LAYBY NEAR THE FIELD AT ANY POINT DURING SPORTS DAY

 

We hope you can make it!

Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the children’s Bring & Buy Sale today!

 

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our school community, through donations of items to sell, baking cakes and of course buying things too. We raised a fantastic £355.06 which will be donated through the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee).

 

We are so proud of how our Young Worship group were galvanised into action to support the people of Nepal following the earthquake and how the rest of the school supported their efforts; it is particularly appropriate as this half term’s value is compassion. You can find out more about the appeal by visiting www.dec.org.uk/appeals/nepal-earthquake-appeal

 

There are some photographs in the gallery of today's sale. We still have some 'stock' left over and this will be sold at the Class 2 Cake Day on Friday; items will cost 10p, 20p or 50p.

A fabulous time was had by all at the end of term PTA Easter Disco with 'Kool Kids' on Friday. There was a lot of energetic dancing, competitions, crazy hair, nail painting, tattoos and of course the popular tuck shop!

Handling our chicks

Our ten chicks came out to play for the first time today and the children have had a lovely time learning how to hold them safely and watching them run around. Some of the chicks have very loud voices too! There are a selection of photographs in the gallery for you to see.

 

If any parents and pre-schoolers would like to come in and see the chicks, after school on Thursday would be a good time.

100% Hatching Success!

All of our eggs are now hatched and we have ten fluffy chicks running about in the brooder box. They will often be seen huddled under the light bulb which is the warmest spot.  There are some photographs in the gallery and the chick cam will continue to be online.

Over the next few days the chicks will begin eating and growing lots and hopefully next week we will be able to handle them.

Living Eggs - hatching!

As part of our Science Week we once again have the Living Eggs project in school. Today has been very exciting as several of our eggs have hatched. The chicks don't need any food or water initially as they have all their nutrients from the yolk they absorbed before hatching, but later in the week they will be moved into the brooder box when they will be able to run around and have chick feed to eat and water to drink.

 

Next week when the chicks are a bit bigger, parents will be able to come in to see them and bring any younger siblings; we will text to let you know when it is a good time to come. 

 

There are some photographs in the gallery and remember you can also view the live 'Chick Cam' 24 hours a day. You can also find out more by visiting www.livingeggs.co.uk 

 

Thank you to the PTA who have once again funded this fantastic project!

Science Week 2015

What a fantastic time we are having - investigating, experimenting and discovering, all as part of our Science Week.

 

Yesterday started with an amazing assembly led by Vicky from 'Mad Science' (www.madscience.org) and since then all the children have been on a journey of discovery through all manner of science investigations and challenges. There are too many to list so take a look at the photos in the gallery to see what we have been up to!

 

Thank you to all the parents who came along to help us, in particular Mr Box and Mr Foster who led some of our fantastic workshops today.

 

A big thank you also to the PTA for funding our Mad Science visit and to Mrs Hoar for planning and organising the activities - it's been wonderful and the children have learned so much! We definitely have some future scientists in our midst!

Chinese Arts Days January 2015

Chinese Arts Days 2015

 

We have had a FANTASTIC two days in school this week for our annual arts days, this year on the theme of China. The children have taken part in so many different activities and have produced some beautiful work whilst learning all about the history, culture and traditions of this amazing country.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered to help – your extra pairs of hands are invaluable to us. Thank you also to the staff for their ideas and enthusiasm, without which there would be no arts days at all; their creativity never ceases to amaze!

 

We would also like to extend an especially big thank you to the PTA for funding the dragon/lion dancing and martial arts workshops which have been a big hit and thoroughly enjoyed by the children. To read more about these workshops visit www.nama.co.uk

 

Our Arts Days have also been greatly enhanced by the beautiful Chinese artefacts loaned to us from various families; thank you so much, they have really helped to bring the children’s learning to life.

 

The children's work will now be put on display for you all to see at the forthcoming Open Session on Monday 2nd February, do try and get along to see it!

 

There are some photographs of the arts days in the photo gallery.

Carol Service in Church 2014

Our Carol Service this afternoon was beautiful. Thank you to all the parents and families who came along to join with us for this very special part of Christmas.

Class 2 acted out the Nativity brilliantly and the Young Worship group told the story of the first Christmas through Biblical readings. All the other classes sang and recited poems to create a really special act of worship. This year's service even had a European flavour, with Silent Night sung in German and Away in a Manger in French!

Well done children!

There are some photographs in the gallery of our rehearsal on Monday.

Class 1's Fabulous Nativity!

What an amazing afternoon! Class 1 gave a wonderful peformance of 'The Sleepy Shepherd' today to a hall packed full of parents and families, a wonderful start to Christmas!

The children may be small but they had huge voices up on the big stage and looked fantastic in their costumes. They had a lot of songs to learn too and we could hear every word. We are so proud of them all and know that parents and families must be too, there are definitely some stars in the making in Class 1!

Thank you to everyone who came along to watch their performance and we hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you especially to all the adults who work in Class 1, but especially to the lovely Miss Ingle who has worked so hard to ensure that the children could feel prepared and confident up on stage.

There are some photographs in the gallery, taken when Class 1 did their dress rehearsal yesterday for the rest of school and visitors from Wymondley and Sloe Hill Nursing Homes.

Well done Class 1!

Remembrance Day 2014

This year's Remembrance Day worship was extra special to mark the first world war centenary. We started by gathering in the hall and sharing in a short Collective Worship led by the children in our Young Worship group; we were glad that so many parents could come along.

 

Then we led over to Church with Revd Ann to join with members of the local community for a ceremony at the war memorial. Each class had made and laid a poppy wreath at the war memorial.

 

To end, the school choir sang a beautiful song called 'We Will Remember Them', a piece that had been written by musician Will Todd especially for the Hertfordshire Music Gala at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year. We have a video of the choir singing the song in the hall which we will put on the website soon so keep an eye out.

 

There are some photographs in the gallery for you  to see.
