The first half term of 2016 culminated with a Valentine's themed non-uniform day to raise funds for children to take part in professional cooking experiences with our School Chef, Mrs Quick.
During the last few weeks, each class has continued to enjoy some exciting and innovative learning experiences:
Foundation Class have enjoyed their "Bear Theme" with a bear cave role-play area and some fabulous writing about polar bears. The Teddy Bears' Picnic saw some tasty cakes being shared too!
Class 1's Victorian topic saw some excellent costumes being worn to the Lincolnshire Life Museum whilst Class 2 finished the half term with a performance of their very own musical scores and compositions to the school.
Class 3's enjoyed meeting each others' pets - thank you to the parents who enabled this. The class are getting to know animals inside and out with skeletons on loan from the Museum Service having taken up residence in the classroom too.
In Class 4, a round the world tour of food on Thursday was enjoyed by children wearing many different examples of traditional national dress. The energy was definitely needed for their sumo competition!
Class 5's learning about the Civil War was enhanced by a fantastic visit to the Civil War Centre in Newark - adults and children alike were really impressed by the learning on offer at this new attraction on our doorstep.
Class 6 are continuing to work hard towards the very high standards of the new National Tests, but continue to have time for their topic work on Japan too. Next time you are in school, look out for their beautiful Japanese inspired paintings which are on display outside the Year 6 classroom.
Congratulations also go to our sporting teams.
The Football "A" Team won their match at home against Lovers Lane Primary in the Newark League last week, whilst the "B" Team fought through the rain, hail and wind to win their away match against Sutton-On-Trent Primary in the Tuxford League.
Our newly formed basketball team played a match against the Collingham team, recording a spectacular win. Special notice must be given to Dan C and Thomas H who have been successful in the County Youth Trials this term and now represent Nottinghamshire as well as their Newark club and our school - very impressive indeed!
