AMAZING NEWS! The profit from the Christmas Fair was £1226. We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the parents from the PTA who planned and organised the event and to all the staff who helped on the stalls. It was such a busy and fun time for all our families.
Children in Year 3 and Year 4 enjoyed a special Bollywood Bonanza on Thursday afternoon. It was an opportunity for everyone to share their learning about the topic this term – East meets West. Parents were invited to come and join in the fun which involved art activities, tasting Indian food and sharing their home learning projects. Children were asked to make a replica of the Taj Mahal as homework and we were very impressed with their efforts!
On 9th November we took the whole of key stage 2 to the cinema to watch Annie as part of the Into film project. The aim of the project is to encourage creativity in the classroom and to work with children to produce their own films. Children who take part in the film club next term will be working towards gaining arts awards.
LATEST NEWS!!!! A thief has stolen our books…

It has been their mission this week to persuade whoever had taken their books to return them. Read more to find out how the week unfolded…
Children attended an emergency assembly when they were told that they suspect a thief has stolen all the books from the school. They set to work to investigate what could have happened.
Parents were invited in to school to a special assembly to find out about our writing week. Along with the children, they were able to watch CCTV images of the thief in action – but who was it and why did he take our books? After the assembly, parents were invited to go in to classrooms to see the children hard at work. Parents then attended a writing workshop where they could learn new writing strategies to help their children at home.
Children attended an emergency assembly where they heard a voicemail that the thief had left stating reasons why he took the books. Our Sulivan children had the task to persuade the thief to return the books. They set to work to write their own exciting book to entice the thief!
Children completed writing their own books in order to persuade the thief to return their books. They hoped they would write a book that he enjoyed reading so much that he would return the books and have a lifelong love of reading. Well done Sulivan for your excellent writing this week…you persuaded the thief to return the books!
