We had an amazing trip to the Ernest Cook Trust on Wednesday, where we created and played musical instruments made out of nature! The children were an absolute delight – they were very well behaved. We all had a great time. Thank you so much to the parent helpers who made the trip possible – Mrs Tustin, Mrs Riley, Mrs Whewell, Mrs Wycherley, Mr Harris, Mrs Oliver, Mrs Osbourne, Mrs Miller, Ms Fry, Mrs Weatherley-Kaye, Mrs Steward & Mr Turner.
We held our annual Travelling Books book fair after school on Monday & Wednesday, and managed to sell a total of over £400 worth of books, earning us books for class book corners worth over £200. On Tuesday we held our popular 'Big House Read', where children enjoyed the chance to share books with both younger and older pupils within their houses. On Wednesday we had 'Favourite Books Day', when children were keen to share their favourite books from both home & school and take part in a variety of activities based on these, including book reviews. On Thursday we had an inter-house Book Quiz, involving teams of children from Reception to Y6 in fierce but friendly competition, whilst on Friday we are held a 'Pre-loved Book Sale', giving children the chance to buy nearly-new books at bargain prices! Thank you so much to all the parents who supported us with all these activities - we hope your children really enjoyed the week and have a renewed enthusiasm for books.
We held our Harvest Assembly at Gretton Church - it was lovely with the children singing, reading poems, prayers and psalms. Thank you to the parents who were able to attend – we hope you enjoyed it! Thank you to all parents who also contributed food items – we delivered boxes to residents in Gretton and the rest of the food went to the local Food Bank.
