The P7 leavers assembly is available on Google Classroom for you all to watch. Please ask your child to login using their Chromebook details. Enjoy.

The P7s had a super day at Fairburn and they all behaved so well and set a great example for Millbank. Well done to them all 😃 and a lovely day for it too 😀.

P5/6 still enjoyed their sports afternoon even if it was slightly different to usual.

Well done for creating your own potted sports!

We had great fun on sports day last week and everyone did a great job!

The children have had a lovely couple of weeks inside the classroom and outside enjoying the sunshine. We have been so busy with lots of learning including; gardening, data handling, phonics, writing, reading, mental maths, money, fractions, division and P.E. The children loved their first sports day on Wednesday and enjoyed their activities and races. There was great excitement this morning when we realised a butterfly had emerged, and then another one after lunch!

Well done boys and girls I am so proud of you for all your hard work, you are all making such good progress. I am looking forward to another busy week next week!

A massive well done to the boys and girls in Rainbow and Sparkle for a fantastic sports afternoon. There were lots of smiles to be seen and everyone joined in brilliantly!

We had a lovely time on Monday afternoon taking part in Sports Day. We worked in groups to create potted sports activities that would challenge the other groups. We also took part in sprinting, relay and skipping races. Here are some pictures of the day.

The children have been enjoying lots of the learning with Miss Douglas and myself over the last few weeks. Alongside our usual phonics, reading, numeracy, arts and crafts we have been learning about living and growing things, including growing our own sunflowers, bean plants, pumpkin and caterpillars!

We have also been learning about the United Nations Rights of the Child and have been talking about the right to education, nutritious food and clean water. The children enjoyed sorted out things into things we need and things we want.

We have been getting outside as much as possible for the daily mile and P.E. and looking forward to some hopefully sunnier weather in the coming weeks.
