We enjoyed welcoming the children in Windmill 2 into their first Collective Worship of the school year. Reverend Janice talked to us about God’s creation. She told us that God had created each and every one of us and that we are all special and unique. The rest of the school then watched as our newest pupils added their pebbles to our special display that represents every member of our school family.
We were delighted to welcome Bishop Colin, the Bishop of Dorchester, to open our brand new early years outdoor learning area. After cutting the ribbon, the parents and visitors enjoyed tea and cake while the the children explored their amazing new area. Some children headed straight for the climbing frame and tunnel while others enjoyed playing with the giant musical instruments or the water feature. The storytelling chair was a big hit too.
The children in Windmill and Oatlands classes enjoyed finding out about the equipment on an ambulance when Mr Raven arrived with his St John’s Ambulance. They found out all about what each piece of equipment is used for and what the St John’s Ambulance Service does. They enjoyed dressing up in hard hats and high visibility jackets as well as using the loud speaker.
Very well done to our Year 3 & 4 Quadkids team – your throwing, jumping, sprinting and long distance running was amazing.
We were delighted to welcome 6th form students from Cokethorpe School at lunchtime today. They ran a football club with children from Year 3 & 4 and a Science Club with the Year 5 & 6s. Next week we are looking forward to the start of our lunchtime Gardening Club.
The children in Years 4 – 6 have thoroughly enjoyed their day at Cokethorpe School celebrating the Corinthian Partnership along with pupils from Ducklington, Coombe and Cokethorpe Junior School.
Windmill Class enjoyed their visit to the allotments where they saw a pumpkin which had been grown by Joseph and his family. It really was enormous!
We celebrated the national TA Appreciation day yesterday with tea, cake and chocolate – a small token of just how much we appreciate our wonderful TAs and HLTAs!
