1/04/2020Yesterday, our Euro 2020 TT Rockstars Matches went the same way as many ‘live’ sporting fixtures recently - they didn’t happen! We apologise for the glitch but we will be back up and running today.
So, to make up for yesterday’s lack of play, we will run Round 2 today. The planned ‘day of rest’ on Thursday will now be replaced with Round 3 and then the knockout matches on Friday to Sunday as planned.
On Monday we had some stand out performances from Kate Winter, Christine Wiley and Bobbie Bonds (for GDPR reasons we are using their Rockstar names!) but there is still lots to play for, so join in today for Round 2, 1-3pm. ⚽️✖️🎸
31/03/2020Don’t forget there are only 2 more days to get your Easter egg entries in to us. There are prizes to be won and the Easter Bunny is still delivering! Here’s one of the most topical entries received so far. 💛
30/03/2020⚽️ Times Tables Rockstars Euro 2020 ⚽️

29/03/2020Wondering what to do today? Why not get the whole family involved in this fun English puzzle?
There are 27 figures of speech depicted in this image. Can you find them all?
Mrs Pope has the answers... Well, almost all of them!
Let us know how you get on.
27/03/2020⭐️ Miss Fry's Feel Good Friday ⭐️
So it's Friday, the first week of home learning is nearly complete, we are hopefully feeling happy and positive and to reward us Miss Fry has agreed to share the recipe for her famous Glitter Jars!
So easy, so quick and so sparkly - have a great weekend everyone!
• Small jar or bottle (make sure it will hold liquid tightly)
• Clear glue
• Glitter (any colours you like)
• A few drops of food colouring
• Hot water
• Whisk or a stick
1. Pour glue and hot water (tap water is okay) into the jar and mix with a whisk or stick. The glue gives the liquid a different thickness and makes impressive swirls of glitter.
2. Add some glitter. You can start with 1-2 tablespoons of glitter.
3. Add a drop or two of food colouring to give it more excitement. Don’t put too much in otherwise the water can turn very dark!
4. When everything is blended, put the lid on and give it a good shake so the glitter is dispersed throughout.
5. Then let it cool without the lid.
6. You can secure the lid with super glue if you wish.
26/03/2020We hope you are all now set up in your home learning environments and are getting to grips with the new ‘routine’. Mr Clayton has put together a ‘go to guide’ which was sent out via email last night so if you are struggling to find your rhythm or motivation this might be a good place to start. We will be publishing some of his hints and tips, as well as those from other teachers, throughout the coming weeks to keep you going so, as they say, watch this space!
For now, if you find yourself with time in between school work, please think about entering our Easter Egg challenge (details below). As some of you may be conserving eggs for eating, we have extended the challenge to include drawings of Easter eggs too so please do send over your entries!
Lastly, we want to say how proud we are of our students. These are challenging times for us all but despite this when they have been struggling or facing adversity their emails to their teachers have remained polite, courteous and well written. So from us to you, thank you! 😊
23/03/2020We are excited to announce our Easter competition ...
Get creative whilst you are at home ... see details of our Easter competition below ....
22/03/2020Please remember - any child that can stay at home tomorrow must do so.
This is all about protecting yourselves, protecting our school staff and protecting the wider community.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
20/03/2020It has been a very strange week, and very sad and emotional saying 'goodbye' to our wonderful students today. We probably won't see most of them for quite a while. We will really miss them all!
We also said a sad farewell to Year 11 today. This was not when, or how, we imagined this would be, but we are so proud of how they have handled this situation and wish them all the very best. We will see them all again as soon as we are able and we will arrange a celebration at some point in the not too distant future.
For the small number of students in school next week, please note the school day will run from 9:30am to 2.30pm and we have just heard that the school buses are running and will pick up in the usual places but an hour later than normal. Wear normal school uniform and bring PE kit please.
We would like to send our best wishes to each of our students and families, please look after each other, follow all the advice given, and we look forward to seeing you all again before too long. We are still here and will remain in touch.
