We were not able to do our usual Christmas performance this year… but we hope you like this instead!

Rock Stars and Numbotters of the week (11 December 2020)

Posted on Friday 11 December 2020 by Mr Gathercole

Even though we’re getting extremely close to Christmas, our band have been working as hard as ever! Congratulations to this week’s winners – all very well deserved.

Next week will be our final Hall of Fame of 2020. Let’s end the year with a bang!

Goldilocks pantomime

Posted on Friday 11 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

Thank you to Friends of Scholes Primary (FOSP) for paying for us to watch a panto. We really enjoyed it and there were lots of important messages for us to take away too:

  • be kind
  • listen to other people
  • we can all be friends
  • laugh and have fun

Living and learning : emotions

Posted on Friday 11 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have been talking about our emotions in our living and learning lessons. It is important to recognise our own emotions and well as other people’s emotions. Even if we feel a certain way, this feeling will not last forever and that is okay.

Fiery finale to our history topic – The Great Fire of London

Posted on Friday 11 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have really enjoyed our history topic – The Great Fire of London.

We have learned so much and saw how London might’ve burned today. We made some houses out of tissue boxes. Two houses were close together and 2 were spaced apart (with a firebreak in between). We then set fire to them. Ask your child what happened!

Rock Stars and Numbotters of the week (04 December 2020)

Posted on Friday 04 December 2020 by Mr Gathercole

The band is on fire! They keep on producing the goods, week in, week out.

This week’s stars have earned their places in the band because of their hard work and dedication. Keep on rocking, everyone.

To be in with a chance of making it onto the hall of fame, your task is simple. Keep practising your skills on Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars.  You might not be the most confident mathematician but becoming a member of the band is about giving it your best shot.

We’ll catch up next week and find out about the latest new recruits.

Christmas recording day – Tuesday 08 December

Posted on Thursday 03 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

The Key Stage 1 team are preparing a short compilation video of each class doing something Christmas related.

The video will be posted on the website on Monday 14 December. So we have time to record and edit the videos, please could your child come to school dressed in a Christmas or party-type outfit on Tuesday 08 December.

You do not need to buy anything new – a cheerful or festive outfit that they can be comfortable in all day (playing out and eating lunch in too) will be fine. If you have a Santa hat or reindeer antlers, for example, they can also wear those.

We will use the photo consent that the school office hold. If this is different, or you do not want your child to be recorded, please contact your child’s class teacher by 07 December.

Living and Learning : NSPCC PANTS rule

Posted on Wednesday 02 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have been talking about pants again! Children love talking about pants and find them funny but we use it in school to deliver a serious safeguarding message. The NSPCC have created some fab resources for us, and you, to use when teaching our children how to keep themselves safe. Ask your child about the PANTS rule and sing along to the catchy song!


Virtual after school clubs

Posted on Tuesday 01 December 2020 by Mrs Latham

We know you are missing attending after-school clubs at the moment (in and out of school) so here is some information about a virtual after-school club that can be done at home.
The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network. These will run until 18 December.

Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club – Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday.

Children in Need

Posted on Tuesday 01 December 2020 by Mrs Hogarth

A Big Thank You!

The children came to school in non-uniform and we asked for voluntary contribution to support this cause. We’ve been completely blown away by your generosity as you’ve raised £566.35. Well done and a massive thank you.
