Beach Party

Posted on Thursday 21 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

What a day! We’ve had a fantastic fun-filled day at our beach themed party. There were games, inflatables, dancing, bubbles, chalking and a water fight. There was not much sun, but we didn’t care, we had so much fun!

WUSU Crew 2022

Posted on Thursday 14 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

The two Wake Up Shake Up (WUSU) after school clubs have been running this year, after a break during the pandemic. It is great fun keeping active through dance and we have enjoyed making new routines to teach the rest of school. The whole school takes an active break at 10 o clock each day; dancing, running or skipping to contribute towards the NHS guidelines of 60 active minutes each day.

Scholes in Bloom – winning design

Posted on Wednesday 13 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

A group of children went out to meet the Britain in Bloom judges today. The winning designer of the Scholes in Bloom competition was there and everyone admired the planted design in the flowerbed outside school. It looks fabulous!

Design Technology – perfect puppets

Posted on Wednesday 13 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

We have absolutely loved our design technology topic this half term. Sewing has turned into a new-found favourite past time for so many children! The finale of the topic was comparing and evaluating our designs to our finished products. I’m sure you are as impressed as we were with our puppets. The children can’t wait to bring them home to play with and show their families.

Living and Learning : drug education from D:Side

Posted on Tuesday 12 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

We had a visitor from D:Side this week telling us all about how to keep our bodies healthy and safe, as part of our Living and Learning lessons. The children (and adults) were all transfixed by the excellent workshop. Ask your child what they learnt.

Living and learning : Drug education

Posted on Thursday 07 July 2022 by Mrs Latham

We have been talking about drugs this week – a substance that changes the way the body or mind works.
The children were very good at discussing different substances and whether they are helpful or harmful – lots can actually be both, in different situations.

We also looked at different scenarios and talked about what we would do in that situation.

Skipping School

Posted on Wednesday 29 June 2022 by Mrs Latham

We had a fabulous time with Jodi and Katie from Skipping School this week. Promoting fitness through fun is always high on our agenda and skipping is the perfect way to do this. We are committed to promote the NHS recommendations that children and young people aged 5 to 18 should:
  • aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous intensity physical activity a day across the week
  • take part in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week to develop movement skills, muscles and bones
If you would like a skipping rope, we have some for sale in the office.
