All the Fun of the FairSummer Fair Pony Ride
Everyone had a great time at this year’s Summer Fair. The sun shone brightly on all the events and stalls, and lots of people came to join in the fun. The pony rides were a big hit; there was an action-packed football competition; the refreshments from the barbecue and cake stall were delicious (as usual) and the event raised a record-breaking 2380 for the school.
Thank you to the organisers and all the many helpers. Well done!

This Week’s WorkReach for the Stars
Our Reception children have been drawing football pitches for our Euro 2016 players to play on!
They have also been reading the book ‘Dinosaurs love underpants’ and they designed some new underpants for the dinosaurs to wear!
Year 1 had a challenge to independently write about their dream house. We loved Sophie’s detail and description. Bella wrote so much, she had to go onto the back!
In Year 2 Jason ordered the events about Christopher Columbus’ voyage and Elexa read carefully to put the events in the right order
In Year 3 Liam and Brooke wrote fantastic recount letters about our trip to Eureka.
Year 4 went down ‘conscience alley’ this week. They had to persuade a character to either do, or not to do, an action. Jamie, Erin and Lila thought of great ideas. Also, Grace has made excellent progress with maths this year.
In Year 5, Tess and Emily wrote brilliant, descriptive, pieces of writing which built tension throughout.
This week Year 6 pupils took part in 1st aid and safety training. Oliver was a real help to the trainer – a willing ‘casualty’ – and Sam was quick to learn the CPR technique – the trainer was particularly impressed with him.
