Science Day

Today we held a science day with the theme of WATER.

 

We started the day with a whole school assembly where we thought about where our water comes from, what we use it for and why we need it. We talked about how precious and important it is.

Then we saw a short video clip of Tim Peake drinking water in space, and explored why scientists are always looking for water on other planets.

After that we thought about what it must be like for people in countries where water is scarce and how lucky we are to have a constant supply of clean water to drink every day.

 

After assembly we all went back to our classrooms where did lots of activities and investigations, including such things as solids, liquids and gases; solutions and dissolving; floating, sinking and density; condensation, evaporation and the water cycle.

 

Science Day - Water

It's pantomime time! Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it is!

Today we had a visit from the Rainbow Theatre Company who brought us their version of Sleeping Beauty. Lots of the children were invited to participate in the story telling and a wonderful time was had by all.

Oh yes it was!

Christmas Parties!

Great excitment throughout the school today as the children prepared for our Christmas parties. Before lunch we all divide into our houses to  design and make our party hats. After lunch we then split into KS1 and KS2 for the parties. Following lots of traditional party games, a communal party tea in the hall and a visit from Santa ...........

lots of very tired and excited children went home!

Good Luck Tim!

Christmas Shopping afternoon.

This is another event organised by the PTA to raise funds - thank you to all parents who help out!

The children have a chance to buy presents for their immediate family, and wrap and label them - so everyone has a surprise under the tree!

Class 5 then helps Class 1 with their wrapping and Class 4 helps Class 2.

What a great way to learn about handling money, practise handwriting and promote collaborative learning.

Christmas Coffee Evening.

Our Christmas coffee evening is an annual event organised by the PTA to raise funds for the school. Parents are invited to visit all the classrooms and see the wonderful decorations the children have been making, visit the craft stalls and enjoy a hot mince pie and coffee. This year our new kitchen was open and A Star Catering provided us with wonderful hot food. Parents are entertained by the recorder groups, the school choir and the ukulele players.

Hey Ewe!

 

This year our Nativity was called Hey Ewe! and was all about a curious sheep who would not go to sleep. Whilst awake she sees a man leading a donkey with a lady on his back, and she wants to follow them and see what is happening. Meanwhile Kings arrive looking for a new Baby King. It has taken them some time to get there as they had the map the wrong way up!  Angels wake the sleepy sheep and shepherds and they all go to a stable in Bethlehem.

The Antara Duo

A visit from Bridgwater Fire Brigade.

On the 9th September  2015 Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning monarch. To mark this milestone we re-enacted the coronation and the children held a procession around the school. The children in Class 1 made crowns and Class 2 pupils dressed as the royal party and foreign dignitaries. Classes 3, 4 and 5 made flags, learnt the national anthem and made crowns and commonwealth bunting. In lessons the children have learnt about the Queen, her family, and her role in Britain and beyond.  

The royal procession!
