A big thank you to everyone who came out for our rather wet and soggy Firework Night yesterday evening. As a fundraising event, we were all really grateful that you braved the elements to support us!
Collective Worship Council
We are really proud of our Collective Worship Council who have worked together so well in planning and leading services and thinking about practical ways that we can serve others as a school. It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to take on a leadership role within the school and it's fantastic to see the children gain confidence and make a difference.
During our Harvest Festival Collective Worship we were treated to the song 'Big Red Combine Harvester', with actions, by Bloom class, the retelling of the story 'The Little Red Hen' by Rossetti class, wonderful harvest art and acrostic poems by Rosen class and Blake Class talked about this term's collective worship theme of 'service' and how both Moses and William Wilberforce, through their faith, truly were people of service to others.
We have started off the School Year with newly named classrooms, each named after amazing poets!
We have had a revamp in our younger years' outdoor learning area with some exciting new play equipment that has been a BIG hit with all the children! The children have been developing their physical skills while climbing as well as using the area for wonderful imaginative play with their friends.

Stardust Performance - School Daze
Stardust Class worked really hard to learn their lines for their performance of 'School Daze' and put in so much effort to make sure they were delivered with expression, enthusiasm and perfect timing. A wonderful team effort.
We had a fantastic Careers week in Stardust Class. The children had an insight into the world of employment with visits from a Marine Engineer, Air Traffic Controller, Police Officer, Graphic Designer and an Architect. All of our visitors gave the children an invaluable insight into their careers and helped the children really understand that there are so many different paths they can take themselves in the future and the opportunities they can follow.
Well done to our wonderful netball team who took part in the netball tournament at Dauntsey Academy Primary School. They showed excellent teamwork and perseverance, remembering everything they have been taught at netball club, and represented our school beautifully. We are very proud of you all.
