11.11.19 - Thank you to Key Stage 2 and all of the parents who came to support us at our Remembrance Service. The children shared some incredibly reflective and moving pieces of work, including poems and letters they had written.

08.11.19 - Our Inspire morning was a huge success. We were so fortunate that many friends and family joined us for this special morning. The children created beautiful 'Van Gogh' inspired art pieces and also wrote letters to War Veterans thanking them for their service and sacrifice.

07.11.2019 - Trip to the Museum of Somerset to handle real World War 1 object.

One of our avid readers in Willow class suggested that we should try ‘Flashlight Friday’ where the children share a book with a friend, in the dark using a flashlight. The children really enjoyed this and we will aim to build it into our timetable every Friday. Children will be welcome to bring in a torch from home if they have one.

On Wednesday 16th October, Willow class participated in a sports festival along with many other local schools. We travelled to Taunton Academy and were coached by Year 11 pupils. All of the children played brilliantly and a huge congratulations to team 2 who came third in the competition.

Many, many congratulations to the children from Willow class for putting together an outstanding class assembly. Everyone who came to watch thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Take a look at our fantastic water colour art. As our topic is World War 1, we focused on silhouettes of soldiers.

Friday 27th September was World Tourism Day. To celebrate, Cedar class visited Willow so the children could share their magnificent leaflets about their trip to the Isle of Wight.

In Willow class, we discussed the opportunity for children to bring in their own pencil cases from home. This document outlines the expectations and each child will sign one to show that they agree to these. Please understand that any pencil cases brought into school are the child's responsibility.

On the ferry home some of us were able to drive the boat! They did a great job and got us safely back onto dry land.

Celebrating International day of Peace before we get on the ferry. We all enjoyed the Harry Potter activities including word searches and crosswords.

Our final morning on the IOW. We all liked this picture with our groupie Benthe.
