Martial Arts Assembly – October 2018

Today we were lucky enough to be joined in our assembly by Steve and Alex from the British Military Martial Arts Academy. They demonstrated lots of amazing techniques and even invited some of the children to have a go!
The children were all very excited!
Your child should have brought a leaflet home with information about the two local sessions in Oulton and Woodlesford.

Autumn Term 2018/19   Anti-Bullying Week

We have been very busy since the start of the year doing lots of learning. For anti-bullying week we made a recipe for a good friend and mixed our ingredients into a bowl. We’ve been listening to lots of fairy tales with big bad wolves in and have done lots of lovely writing. In Maths we have been working hard to develop our place value knowledge! We have enjoyed making houses for the 3 Little Pigs for our topic ‘Who’s afraid of the Big bad Wolf?’.

Fairtrade Week – Spring term 2 2018
Here are some pictures from Fairtrade week! The children loved being involved in the café, as you can see from their happy faces. We had Fairtrade banana porridge and toast, including some Fairtrade tea and coffee. KS1 made menus, artwork and posters for the event. They enjoyed helping to make, serve and eat the food. We love knowing that the money we spend on Fairtrade goes to a great cause!

Tennis coach – Spring 1
A tennis coach visited key stage one for our PE session. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and learned new skills.
