Today we welcomed 4 staff from the NSPCC to our school. As well as leading a whole school assembly about staying safe, these volunteers also provided active workshops for our Year 5 and 6 pupils. All other pupils had a special session centred around ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ within their classes.
Our School Council had already agreed to set up and run a huge obstacle course for the children to be sponsored to complete. We’re happy to say that every child completed this course during the day so the children can start to claim their sponsorship money before handing it in to their class teacher. All proceeds go directly to the charity.
Today’s assembly centred on optimism, one of the character traits from our QPA character scheme. Can we do it? Yes we can!
Many thanks to all of the parents who joined in with our children to make thumb pots this afternoon. The results were really impressive!

Year 5 used chalks skilfully to create images of the Northern Lights, using a variety of techniques.
Today our Windsor House Captains held an assembly for their house. Although the theme of working together and of how to demonstrate character was provided, the pupils prepared their own activities and content. Their delivery was excellent and they demonstrated courage and discernment throughout.
There have been a lot of science experiments taking place this week. Year 3 are finding out what happens to flowers and plants when placed into coloured water whilst Year 5 have dissected tulips. In Year 6, the children have taken apart owl pellets in order to investigate the diet of owls. Great hands on learning!
