World book day 2019

This week we celebrated World Book Day across school. Lots of children, and teachers too, got dressed up as their favourite characters and came to school for a day of reading and fun!

A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers for putting in so much effort into everyone’s costumes! Everyone looked amazing!

We had to decorate our classroom door as our favourite book. The children in Topaz class took a vote and we decided that our favourite book at the moment is The Pigs Knickers!

Take a look at our door.

We went on a walk around school to look at some of the other doors. Here are some of our favourites.

Next week, everyone will receive a £1 book token that they can spend on a special World Book Day book or use it towards a book when the Book Fair comes to school soon!


Pancake day!!

The children in Topaz class loved trying pancakes for pancake day!

Fairtrade baking

We have been learning all about fairtrade. We discussed what fairtrade was and why it is important. We also discussed how it can affect people.

Can you find anything at home that has the fairtrade logo on? If you can bring it into school because we would love to see what you have found.

Writer of the week

Our super write this week has tried so hard. He is writing all the time now and becoming more confident with his sounding out. He comes in everyday with an A4 piece of paper covered in amazing writing. He can write about anything!


Y1 had their first session with the football coaches this week. We practiced dribbling the ball and controlling it with only our feet. It was very tricky! But we had so much fun!

Healthy living week 2018

Across school, we have been thinking about how to keep ourselves healthy. We have had lots of visitors in school and activities to complete to promote a healthy lifestyle.

We did:

– yoga – yoga is good way to exercise both your body and minds.

– mission active session – we loved our active session with Errol! It was so much fun getting to try different activities to get our heart rate up!

– exercise bikes – we got to use exercise bikes with smoothie makers on the front to make delicious smoothies. We had to pedal as fast as we could to blend the fruit. Our favourite bit was tasting the fruit it was yummy!

PANTS- Mrs Murch spent some time talking to us about PANTS. If you would like to find out more go to the NCPCC website.

Here is some of our favourite photos!

Ice skating

We were very lucky today when an ice skating rink came to our school. Some of us were a little worried about going on the ice while some of us were really excited. Everyone went on the ice even Miss Breeze and Miss Bibby! Some of us fell over a few times but we always got back up and tried again.


This half term we are going to be learning all about plants and trees. To start off our topic we planted some seeds and then went up onto the field to look at the different flowers and trees that we have at school. We are looking forward to learning all about plants. If you find a plant that you like take a picture or bring it in, Topaz class would love to see all of your photos!
