Class 1 enjoyed selecting and using a range of different media to create Cinderella’s Castle. There was lots of maths learning as well!
Due to the forecast of heavy rain this afternoon, we are holding our Harvest Festival in school instead of walking to church. It is at the same time of 2pm and everyone is welcome to come and join us!
Come and join us to celebrate the harvest this afternoon in church at 2pm. Thank you to all who have kindly donated food (dry, tinned, packeted) for the Bridgnorth Food Bank.
A huge well done to our netball team for being the overall winners of the East Shropshire Netball Tournament! We saw excellent teamwork and enthusiasm, perseverance and determination, and you have grown so much in terms of skills and confidence over the last few weeks! We look forwards to seeing you perform in the County Winter Games!
Class 1 enjoyed creating a range of 2D shapes using mini-marshmallows and cocktail sticks, or straws and blutak. There was lots of mathematical vocabulary and Archie managed to create a 10 sides shape with 10 vertices!
Following on from our learning about China and it’s culture in assemblies this week, Logan kindly brought in this amazing Dragon Dance costume from home.
Tomorrow children can wear one item of red clothing along with school uniform to support this excellent cause….let’s help Zac!
Class 1 have had a very special visitor this morning! Prince Charming arrived at school searching for Cinderella. I hope they can help him to find his Princess!
We have reminded children that any packaging waste from their packed lunch needs to be put into their packed lunch bags and return home, so that parents can be aware of what has or hasn’t been eaten. In consideration of this, can we kindly request that parents don’t send children with a carton of fruit juice for lunch, as these are often not finished and would leak badly into the packed lunch bags, plus we advocate that children are drinking water in school, and not sugary, fruit drinks. Thank you for your support.
Class 1 enjoyed a game of Classroom Rounders to practice forming shapes and patterns to help with future letter formation.
There is lots of reading for pleasure, comprehension and shared learning between Class 1 and Class 4 when they buddy read on a Friday afternoon. It is lovely to hear the older children offering support and help and being ‘mini teachers’, demonstrating kindness and encouragement.
Class 1 Reception children have enjoyed making tall and wide shapes in PE today.
We have recently reviewed our handwriting policy (available on the School Website in the Key Info/Policies section), in order to ensure greater consistency across school. As a result we are teaching a cursive style of handwriting, which for year 1 children, involves each letter starting on the line with a lead in and ending with a lead out. We are finding that this style helps the child’s writing to flow better and will make joining seamless.
Class 3 are enjoying carrying out their PE Challenges, involving chest/wall catches, a co-ordination jump and a slalom run. Each term they will repeat and see how their skills have improved! @EastShropSSP #fitness4fun #personalchallenge
Look what Pippa has made with yesterday’s freshly picked school apples! Apple sauce to go with our roast dinner and apple cookies! Delicious! Thank you Pippa! #homegrownschooldinners
Our kitchen staff demonstrated determination and initiative today in collecting locally grown apples from the school’s fruit trees. We can’t wait to taste tomorrow’s pudding!
We are really enjoying working in the role play medical centre. Thankfully no one is too seriously ill!
We have been learning and investigating different 2D shapes.
Forest School starts tomorrow for Class 2
Please note that the organisation of Class 2’s Forest School sessions will be slightly different this year. The year 1s will all be going to Forest School every week (on Friday mornings) for the first half term whilst the year 2s will all be staying in class. After the half term break, the groups will change over.
As the children will be going out whatever the weather, they will need to wear appropriate clothing.
Long trousers and long-sleeved tops are essential all year round for protection against horse flies, mosquitos, nettles and brambles. In the winter, they will also need a sweatshirt or jumper, a hat, scarf and gloves and a spare pair of socks. Children will need wellies all year round. A waterproof coat is needed and waterproof trousers, although optional, are useful, especially when it becomes wetter and colder.
PLEASE NAME ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING & FOOTWEAR CLEARLY.
Children can come to school in their Forest School Kit, and then change into uniform after the session.
Here is our new Culture Corner, where each half term we learn about a different country of the world. This term we are finding out all about China!
The new term has started smoothly; we have welcomed our new reception children, along with Ruby (Class 3) and Owen (Class 4). The school is looking smart and tidy, and so are the children! Here is a copy of the welcome back to school letter which details lots of relevant information for the start of the new term.
One change that is worth noting is the ‘tweaking’ of the start to the school day, with doors now opening at 8:45am and closing at 8:55am, to allow for a prompt start for learning and help children settle into the school day with minimal disruption.
There is also a copy here of our School Access Procedures just as a reminder:-
Today we celebrated the achievements of our Year 6 pupils before they leave us today! Thank you to everyone for joining us at our End of Year Assembly, with a special thanks to Mr Spreadborough for coming back to present the Sports Award.
Please come and join us for our end of Year Assembly tomorrow at 2pm where we celebrate our pupils achievements over the year and share our memories of our year 6 pupils. Everyone is welcome!
What an amazing 2 performances of ‘The Pirates of the Curry Bean’! Class 3 and 4 were absolutely awesome and so professional in their acting, singing and performance of a very funny school show. There was laughter and jokes, solos and duets, and most of all they all did it with piratical style! Well done everyone!
A special thank you to Mr Smith for his prop-making speciality, and also for our guest gorilla performer!
Class 3 and 4 put on a brilliant first performance this afternoon; absolutely faultless! Well done! Tomorrow’s performance is at 6pm. Can children please arrive at 5.30pm in order to get into costume for a prompt start. Refreshments are available while you wait for the start.
Please note that there is no Well Done Assembly on Friday 20th July, however we are holding our End of Year Assembly on Thursday 19th July at 2pm where we say a fond farewell to our Year 6 pupils and celebrate the end of a successful year – ALL are welcome to join us!
We had a fun filled afternoon on Wednesday when the weather held, and we held our Sports Day, following a picnic lunch. It was a great afternoon where we saw courage, determination, fun, enthusiasm and challenge, along with a large helping of team-spirit! A big thank you to FOBCS for providing refreshments and also to everyone that joined us to support the children in what was a fantastic sporting afternoon!
Enjoy the photos!
