We are very proud of Mrs Henley, who has completed her Thrive training. The Thrive approach focusses on children’s mental health and wellbeing, with the knowledge, insights and resources needed to develop relationships that help children and young people flourish and learn.
This week Year 2 were all very brave when they welcomed Axe Valley Wildlife Park. Giant stick insects; a Chinese water dragon; bearded dragons; a giant millipede; a corn snake and a royal python were amongst the visitors! The children very much enjoyed learning about how they survive and adapt to their habitat.
Congratulations to the Year 3/4 ‘A’ team who took part in a Hockey Tournament at Holyrood on 26 November and returned overall winners. Well done everyone!
Members of the community joined the children to be creative. The focus was on the oak tree and local artists were available to help and inspire.
Year 5 had great fun during their residential trip to Pixies Holt, where they undertook team building and outside activities.
Five teams took part in the tournament, each playing each other. We did not concede a game, even though some of our team had never played cricket before! Well done girls!
Having successfully completed two stages, our hockey team went to the finals at Millfield School and returned triumphant for the second year running! It was a most enjoyable day when skill, teamwork and determination came to the fore. Out of all of the games played only 3 goals were conceded.
