    House Team News

    Last half term saw some fantastic efforts from all of our KS2 children which led to a record number of house points being awarded across our four houses.  Our house captains have continued to work hard to motivate their teams but the end of half term saw our Sports Captains stepping up and devising a strenuous warm-up activity before all of our children participated in a punishing cross-country on the last day of the half-term.

    World Book Day 7th March

    On Thursday 7th March we invited the children to come into school dressed as a book character. They had the opportunity to talk about their character and which story they are a character in. The day was packed with lots of fun activities including a play performed by the staff of Pyrcroft Grange Primary School. In the afternoon there was a book sale in the hall run by the charity Delight. Every child was able to buy two books, using vouchers provided by the school.

Have a read of some of the stories here.

    Enriching Opportunties for pupils

    Delight in Watts Year 4: This year Topaz class have had the amazing opportunity to take part in the Delight in Watts art project. The project aims to support and provide primary aged children with access to immersive and cross-curricular arts experiences, with the aim of broadening their horizons and increasing self-esteem. The project has had a huge impact on the children of Topaz class and as a result they have had benefitted from engaging activities that have extended their cross-curricular learning opportunities. This year, the children were required to sketch, create and paint their own canvas painting of a rainforest animal, linked to our spring term IPC topic Saving the World.  The children worked alongside several professional artists to produce their own bright and vibrant canvas painting. The project culminated in a ‘Topaz Exhibition’ at the Watts Gallery, where parents, family and friends were invited to celebrate their children’s creative achievements and engage in their education over a cup of hot chocolate. It was a wonderful experience that empowered the children to be proud of their learning, whilst sharing in the joy and pride...
