Friday 14th July 2023

This week, every pupil has taken part in a Circus Skills workshop, taught by Circomedia. Pupils from Reception through to Year 6 tried their hands at juggling, plate spinning, tight rope walking, balancing, diablo throwing and more. This was a great finale to our year of performance skills and theatre shows! Here are some photographs from across the week.

Sports Day Results

The weather was kind to us this week, which meant that our third and final sports day event went ahead for years 4, 5 & 6! Before we announce the overall results, here are some pictures from this week's event.

Well done to all the children who represented their houses in running, jumping and throwing events plus a few sports day classics like the egg & spoon race and our new favourite - tug of war! Thank you to the sports leaders Dylan, Lucy, Teagan, Liz and Meli who helped, and to all the adults and children who came along to support, cheer and encourage the pupils. 

The results are as follows:- 


Reception children did not compete for points but showcased some of the fundamental movement skills that they have been practising over the year. Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined in too!
