  • PACT Art Competition in the Press!

    Published 07/03/19

    The School Council decided it would be fabulous to have an art competition linked to animals as our school charity this year is PACT Animal Sanctuary. The children could use any medium, 2D or 3D. We invited three judges, who had the unenviable task of selecting a winner in each year group from Reception to Year Six. Our judges were Sarah Hickling (a local vet), Canon Nairn and Sophie Keeney.

  • Art Competition

    Published 01/03/19

    Our School Charity for the year 2018/19 is PACT, an animal charity based in Norfolk.  Each term we hold a fundraiser, our latest being an art competition. Children were asked to create an animal using any medium they wished. It was lovely to see a large amount of entries and we are pleased to say that a total of £47.21 was raised.

    The children were very imaginative. We had a pig made from a plastic bottle, a dinosaur made from Lego, a papier-mache fish and another decorated from sweet wrappers to name but a few. Well done everyone!

  • Global Citizenship Launch 27.2.19

    Published 01/03/19

    Our current improvement focus is Global Citizenship. Building upon what the children already know, we are looking at how the children can gain a better understanding of the people and communities beyond their immediate experience.

    It was lovely to see so many parents attend our Launch Assembly on Wednesday morning. Children from each of our classes spoke clearly to explain what they have been doing in class so far. Rowan spoke about water, Whitebeam about festivals around the world and Oak shared some startling statistics regarding child poverty.

    Thank you to everyone who attended or have contacted school regarding this subject, we are grateful for all the supportive comments.

  • Whitebeam's Writing Cafe

    Published 23/01/19

    Whitebeam Class had a cafe focusing on writing. We read a book, Arctic Song, and then tried to make our sentences longer and more interesting. We also tried to make them as descriptive as possible.

    First we had a page out of the book we were focusing on and with the parents help we highlighted verbs, adjectives, nouns and adverbs.

    Next we drew a picture of an arctic animal and decorated it. After that we cut out special templates and tried to describe the animal we chose, making the sentence a little bit longer by adding more words each time.

    Finally, we joined all the pieces together to make a mobile.

    Soon the parents needed a coffee while the children were tidying up.

    Whitebeam say a big thank you to all the parents who came in to help.
