A Prayer for Christmas by Ella, Year 5, Owl Class
Thank you for Your wonderful Son who came down to earth and
Thank you for gifting us Your wonderful creations.
Please help those who think Christmas is all about the gifts when it is really about
the Saviour, Jesus Christ, being born to Mary and Joseph.
Sorry for those people who do not have gifts like us at Christmas time.
A Wonderful Operatic Experience
Many of our children and parents will recall the visit we received from the professional opera singers and the fantastic workshop and performance that followed. After this most successful visit we were then fortunate enough to receive a second visit, please see below.
Released: 19th November 2019
Guess what happens when professional opera singers spring a surprise visit to our school? This!!
"This is the best day of my life"
(pupil aged 6)
Organised by Wiltshire Music Connect
Badger Class and Hedgehog Class took part in Beep Beep Day.
Badger Class took turns to be cars or pedestrians. The pedestrians then crossed our road, choosing the safest place to cross which was the zebra crossing. We knew we needed to 'stop, look and listen' and held hands to stay safe. We discussed the importance of holding an adults hand when crossing roads or walking next to roads.
Year 5/6 Netball
A team of nine (six girls and three boys) went to Wyvern St Edmunds learning campus to play netball.
Some of the things we enjoyed were how the teachers, our team and even the other teams were so supportive. One of the schools gave us three cheers! We are proud of getting our first goal and winning that match. We are grateful that the teams didn’t get boastful even if they won by a lot.
We are disappointed that we didn’t get to the semi-finals as we didn’t get much practice but we loved our experience playing netball. We hope that next time we get a little bit further.
We want to say a thank you to all the staff including the staff from Wyvern St Edmunds for organising this event and giving us this opportunity. We also want to say a BIG thank you to Mr Waddington and Mrs Irwin for supporting us through this event. Over all we really enjoyed our time there.
On Friday 15th March we held a Red Nose Non-Uniform Day to raise funds for Comic Relief. Some of our older children also organised a cake sale; making posters, wrote letters to parents asking for donations and manning the cake stall.
Not only did everyone have a lovely day but we also raised an amazing £284.62 for a very worth while charity.
We have been learning about road safety and where possible walking,cycling and car sharing are all good for us and the environment.
The children in Badger Class used their road track to practise crossing the road safely, they also played some of the games provided during Road Safety Week.
On the 6th December the children in Owl Class visited Salisbury Cathedral to take part in the Christingle Service. This was organised by the Children's Society as part of their 50th Anniversary and along with the Bishop, Arch Deacons and other local officials was attended by HRH The Duchess of Gloucester in her role as Patron.
Six of our children had the special privilege of being asked to meet and talk to HRH about the Christingle service.
Thank you to Dominic Parkes for providing us with copies of the official photographs.
