Weekly Roundup

10th February 2017

Doesn’t time fly?  We are now half way through the school year!  The children are doing brilliantly and the weeks continue to be crammed full of exciting events. 

The end of last week saw the Foundation Stage pupils have a real treat.  Each of the children were able to use a real firefighter’s hose and see how a fire engine worked.  The children were all really excited and had a great time.

On Sunday we managed to use every lane of the Meres swimming pool as staff, children and Parents/Carers from each year group took part in the Rotary Club Swim Marathon.  It was an epic effort from all involved in which we expect to raise around £1800 in sponsor money.  We would like to say a huge thank you to all involved, the Rotary Club are extremely grateful for our efforts.  Can all participants please collect their money and return it to school as soon as possible.

On Monday the Year 5 pupils visited Rutland Water were they had a great day that fitted brilliantly with their topic about “Watery Worlds”.  They completed team-building activities, learned all about the dam/reservoir, filtered dirty water and even got to use a real bird hide to have a look at the different types of bird that visit the area.

On Wednesday the Year 2 gymnastics team took part in the local cluster competition. They were on wonderful form and managed to win the whole event!

The school disco was a real treat last night with the children form the Juniors having a great time.  Thank you to all of the staff who volunteered to help out.  Well done to all of the children who behaved brilliantly whilst dancing the evening away.

Finally, have a great half term break.  We are looking forward to seeing you again on 20th February for another action packed half term!
