This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.

Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

1960s day for 10 & 11 year olds

(viewed 8356 times)
Years 5 and 6 have been learning about life in the '60s and today is '60s day. Staff and many of the children have dressed a-la-mode; hence the picture. It's clear that many of the children have been enthused by their learning and this is why they have shown such a high level of support for today.

Speed Shot

(viewed 1842 times)
How hard can you kick a football? A 'Speedshot' challenge for the whole school. A great deal of fun whilst encouraging sport for fun and raising money for library books.

The fastest girl's shot was 44mph and the fastest boy's was 52mph. The girl is in Year 4 and the boy in Year 5.

Well done to all who took part!

Wake up! Shake up!

(viewed 2592 times)
A lively way to start the school day. Great to see some parents joining in too, although you can't see them on this picture.

A 5 minute warm up before the start of the school day is a great way to energise minds and bodies before work. It's also good for all round health. Well done, everyone.
