Something fishy in Year 6…

This half term, Year 6 have been getting creative with clay in their DT lessons with Mr Johnston, learning a variety of techniques while making different kinds of pottery fish. We think the final results should be decorative enough to earn a place on a display shelf at home!

World Book Day is coming!

World Book Day 2018 is Thursday 1st March and we are planning some great activities around it, such as story time with different teachers, a book trail and book swapping sessions.  Pupils in Nursery and Prep were given a letter on Friday with a voucher to choose one of the special £1 Book Day titles – keep it safe!

Here is what we plan:

  • Pupils can come to school on March 1st dressed as a favourite book character – there will be a parade during assembly and prizes for the best, most creative ones! Why not start planning your costume over half term?
  • The wonderful Ketts Books, Wymondham’s community-run bookshop, will have a book fair in The Barn on Weds 28th  February, from 3.00pm for Lower Prep and from 4.00pm for Upper Prep. Pupils can use their World Book Day voucher to claim one of the special titles on offer. We will also get one free Usborne book for our school library for every two sold on the day, so do have a look at the special Usborne display for some great information books!
  • You can find out more about World Book Day here.

adversity.

Player of the Match is awarded to Alice for her agility and stamina.

Mini donkeys in The Barn!

In assembly this morning we welcomed two beautiful little visitors, Pixie and Pippin from Mini Donks,  the local charity chosen by our senior girls for our fundraising this year.  We heard from  Mini Donks’ founder Sarah all about the wonderful work these gentle, friendly little creatures do to improve the wellbeing of people in care homes, with dementia or in any other situation where a smile is needed (you can’t help smiling when you meet them!). Sarah explained that it costs £30,000 a year to keep the donkeys on the road and travelling to the places they are needed: they earn £20000 of that in visit fees but need to make up the £10000 shortfall. Miss Mann, who organised the visit, said that each form in our school will be thinking about what fundraising activity they can arrange, to help meet this target. You can read more and see videos on the Mini Donks website.

When assembly finished, the children had an opportunity to get up close and touch the donkeys in the courtyard.
