We’ve arrived at Harry Potter Studios!

The children have arrived safely at the Harry Potter Studios and are just enjoying their lunch before starting the tour. We will update the website and Twitter with an estimated time of arrival at school once the children have departed.

Harry Potter trip!

Our trip to Warner Brothers’ Studios is on Thursday and we are all very excited! A few last minute pointers:

All children are to wear their school tracksuit. A packed lunch is required for lunch time along with a drink. Children will be having their evening meal at the studios (please ensure that you have paid for this on Sims Agora). Maximum spending money on the day is £10, if you have pre-ordered a gift for more than this, that is fine (please ensure that gifts have been paid for on Sims Agora before the day).

We are expected back at 8.45pm- we will update the school website and Twitter account as we return. Please check on there for any changes to our arrival time.

Please read again the letter with all of the information about the trip for a recap- it’s attached below.

*If you know that your child suffers from travel sickness, please provide travel sickness tablets for the coach trip to and from Warner Brother Studios*

We are hoping that this will be a memorable experience for our children to finish off the hard work they have put in on Harry Potter.

Many thanks for your support.

 

Mrs McDevitt & Mr Rolison.

The most wonderful time of the year

A fantastic week to end a long, busy and very successful term. The end of term Mass and carol service followed by our trip to Ash End Farm was a wonderful way to start our week.

We then completed our week with a beautiful prayer service led by the chaplaincy team to remind the children what Christmas is really about.

As a treat for the children we settled in our PJs and watched The Polar Express (chosen by them). We had popcorn, sweets and hot chocolate.

The children were understandably excited so we finished our day by ready our special book that had been delivered by a very special guest, “The night before Christmas”

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your generous gifts and cards, they are very much appreciated. Also to wish you and your families a blessed Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

See you in 2019

Last week of term!

Year 4 have enjoyed an eventful couple of days to end the term! Yesterday, we had ‘No Rules Day’ for the morning- everybody had to stay safe and have fun. Everbody enjoyed spending time in different classrooms and various locations around school, and lots of popcorn and squash was had!

A frantic clean up of the whole school took 12 minutes. This was followed by a debate where Year 4 decided that having no rules was the best idea- it was not a unanimous decision!

Today was spent watching movies, drinking hot chocolate, dancing, singing and playing games!Thank you all for your presents, cards and kind wishes. We wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas; enjoy the holidays together.

Merry Christmas from Mrs McDevitt & Miss Piercy x

Advent Prayer Service

Year 4 led an Advent prayer service this week for the children in Year 2. The children thought about all of the things that bring joy to their lives and offered these up in prayer. Well done to both classes who were beautifully reverent during the afternoon service.

No Rules Day

In order to carry out a true debate, Years 3, 4 and 5 took part in a No Rules Day this week to see what life is like without any rules.

Children were free to explore classrooms as they pleased and were responsible for solving their own questions and problems.

Once 9 o’clock was reached, children surged across the school to decide their own timetable for the day.

After the morning of No Rules, the afternoon began with dealing with the consequences of freedom – clean up. The children worked extremely well to have the whole school back and tidy within 15 minutes.

 

In the afternoon, KS2 began their debate as to whether school rules should be kept. Both For  and Against

were determined their side would be victorious!

In Year 5, we fiercely debated and defended our points of view before coming to an overall consensus that a relaxed ‘no rules’ or ‘fewer rules’ day would be welcome around once a term.

 

 

Well done to the children for staying safe and responsible through the day and for tidying up in such an efficient manner.

Merry Christmas!

Year 6 have had a lazy PJ day whilst getting into the festive spirit by making Christmas cards and calendars for the new year!

They then spent the afternoon eating donuts and watching How the Grinch stole Christmas!

A perfect end to a busy term 🙂

Thank you for all of the cards, presents and Christmas wishes we’ve received. We look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Eve Mass and hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
