  Hello Visitor,

Cross Country 

Our Key Stage 2 cross country team did the school proud in their recent competition. Braving some rather unpleasant weather but somehow avoiding the rain, the children ran their hearts out. As a team, they performed brilliantly and there were exceptional individual performances from Yogi, Arlo and Zoe.

Collective Worship - Advent

Year 5/6 led our whole school collective worship in church a week last Friday to introduce Advent to the other pupils, using multi media presentations, role play, music and prayer!  

The church has very kindly made the school an Advent wreath which is now back in school for the remainder of Advent, with a new candle being lit each week in the build up to Christmas. Many thanks to Rev Paula for spending time in school to support the children's learning.

Christmas Theme Day

Thank you to the volunteers, parents, staff and children for making Christmas Theme Day such a success. The pupils had a fantastic festive day and the kind donations will make some brilliant hampers for FOGS raffle (to be drawn next week at the performance of Bah Humbug!)
