Silly Socks!

Friday 31st March is 'Silly sock day' to raise money for Down Syndrome Awareness. We had lots of fun wearing our 'silly socks'.

Purbeck Music Festival 2017

We were incredibly proud of our Key Stage 2 children as they performed at the Purbeck Music Festival. We joined with other schools to sing tunes from 'The Button Box', and also enjoyed watching the Upper Schools perform during the first half. Thank you so much to all the parents, carers, friends and family who came to support us last night. The biggest thank you, though, should go to our amazing children who really shone on stage! You were all fabulous! PS A few children could be found celebrating their performance at a nearby ice-cream parlour after the show!!

Negative Symmetry Art

Some members of Key Stage 2 have been exploring negative symmetry art this morning. The children discussed some examples first and then created their own design. I am sure you will agree that the final pieces are pretty impressive!

Learning fun with trains..toot, toot!!

We have had lots of fun learning with the help of trains. We have been making trains stop at the station to collect passengers learning about arrays, we have been doing 'train track writing', number train maths and using the trains to make our phonics great fun!

The Easter Story

Over the last few weeks, we have been exploring the accounts of the Easter Story in the Bible. We have considered how different people might have felt at various points, and discussed the aspects of joy, despair and hope. This afternoon, the children in Eagles Class have started painting their own design of a stained glass that reflects the Easter Story.

Terrific Tennis

We loved starting off our week this week with a special tennis session led by a sports coach. It was a really fun time and the children enjoyed learning some new racquet and ball skills. Every child has brought home a letter today that outlines some of the additional tennis tuition you can pay for outside of school if you would like to.

Artist in School

As we prepare for Purbeck Arts Week and celebrate all things creative, we were thrilled to welcome Nicki Hall into our school as an 'artist in residence'. Throughout the day she has worked with a group of children from every class. She has taught the children how to work with metal and they have designed and decorated a metal leaf. Each leaf will now be taken away to become part of a tree sculpture that we will feel very proud of!

Tickled Pink!

In our school, children are always striving to improve their writing. When a member of staff sees a brilliant example of description, they will highlight the word or phrase in pink. As you can see from the examples below, some of the children in Eagles Class have been working really hard and are very proud of their descriptions.

Kingston Maurward

Eagles Class have had a fantastic day of learning outside our classroom today! The children thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kingston Maurward Animal Park, and got to feed some sheep and goats. There was also a very hungry alpaca who kept coming up to meet us! One of our favourite parts of the day was meeting Skye, the owl.

World Book Day

We were all looking forward to coming into school in our PJs and slippers today! To celebrate World Book Day, we have taken part in activities to do with the theme of 'Bedtime Stories'. Throughout the day, we have listened out for a special bell and have followed D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read). We also spent some time with children from different classes and enjoyed sharing our favourite books. Enjoy looking at the photos of the day!

Eagles Maths Cafe

Thank you so much everyone for coming to our French Maths Cafe. It was fantastic to see you all and the children loved taking your orders. We hope you were impressed with our maths skills and the way we calculated your total bill and the change you needed.
