A Day To Remember

As we noted on a previous blog post, our new library is now OPEN!

On the 23rd March we held an opening ceremony and invited the Mayor of Rushmoor, Councillor Alan Ferrier, to officially open the new library.

Escorted by Year Two School Council members he visited all our classrooms and enjoyed talking to the staff and children.

A plaque is on the library wall to commemorate this special occasion.

It is a wonderful learning resource for the school and the children are really enjoying using it.

The Activemark Award

We can proudly announce that the school has achieved the Activemark Award from the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
This reward has been given for exceptional delivery of the National School Sport Strategy. We were commended on the commitment we have to high quality regular PE and sports activities.

School Projects!

This term's Home Learning Project is another interesting one - 'Grow a Sunflower!'

Each child in the school has planted a sunflower seed in a pot to grow at home, and there will be an exhibition on the 10th July to see the results! (you don't need to bring in the sunflower, but we're hoping to see some pictures).

A notebook or scrapbook can be used to present the work and some activities include measuring the sunflower as it grows, taking pictures, researching how to grow a sunflower and drawing pictures along the way.

We hope the children enjoy the project and we can't wait to see the results!

What have we been up to recently??

We wanted to take the opportunity to share some pictures of the beautiful work the children have been doing recently.
We have many wonderful displays around the school at the moment and we wanted to share some pictures with you.

As you can see, the children have been working so hard and they are very proud of the displays, and rightly so!
Well done everyone.
