Daily Mile is a hit!

Pupils have been taking part in the daily mile for almost two weeks and teachers have reported that it has been a success. Pupils are completing the mile quicker and their concentration skills have improved.
We decided to implement the mile at 2pm as the afternoon sessions were long and pupils concentration was proving a little challenge…but we now feel that the pupils are enthusiastic to get their work done in order to take part in the mile and feel refreshed coming back in to lessons.

Today the children in Years 2-6 enjoyed watching a production about bullying, called ‘The B Word’. The children watched attentively and thoroughly enjoyed the show.

Climbing on the coast

The children have achieved so much today and they are all feeling SO PROUD of themselves. The staff are also so proud of all they have achieved this week.
They have made memories to last a lifetime, developed independence and created their most memorable moments for the leavers assembly. What an excellent start to Year 6. Continue reading
