Dress Down Friday and Coffee Morning

This is to remind you all that we are having a dress down day this Friday 24th Feb with a £1 donation to help raise funds for the Friends. Year 6 are also showing initiative and running a coffee morning and cake sale to help raise funds towards their Cambridge trip in few weeks. Parents and family members are welcome from 9:15-10:45 am. Children will also have the opportunity to buy cakes at 20p each during break time.

IT in Year 6 Microbits. 

Mrs Gray from Fakenham Academy is taking the Year 6’s understanding of programming one step further today. . The children have been using a Microbit with their Chromebook to program a racing game. The Microbit has been programmed as a dice and changes numbers when gently shaken. 

It is all very clever and as I’ve heard the children saying “It’s cool!”

Kindness in Year 6

We have started to look at Kindness in Year 6. We began by thinking about the acts of kindness the children have shown over half term. I have decided that my children are very kind! There were some great acts of kindness ranging from hoovering the house, letting mum sleep in, looking after younger children, cleaning up after a puppy, making Get Well cards and helping strangers in shops. Have a look at the photos and see if you can guess who is doing what. 

Swimming 

Year 3 will be swimming tomorrow (Tuesday 21st February).We have asked each child to bring labelled swimming trunks or costume in dark colours (preferably navy or black), a swimming hat, a towel and goggles if possible. A brush or comb would also be useful too, especially if your child has long hair. 

We have also sent parent consultation letters home to be returned as soon as possible, please. If the times are not convenient then by all means get in touch with Mrs Niven or me and we will do our best to find a time that suits you better.

Cross Country Final

I was so proud of this little bunch today. The weather was against us – it was freezing! They all ran their absolute best in sometimes blizzard conditions, but still kept smiling. They represented the school with a perfect attitude, a huge well done to  you all, and many thanks to Sophie Thornley for transporting and helping on the day. Now time to thaw out!
