On Thursday, 12th May, we were lucky enough to secure a visit to ‘Frankie and Benny’s’ restaurant in Tamworth to take part in their “Pizza Party Workshop” for children. The aim of the outing was to inspire children to be excited about cooking whilst also learning useful kitchen and cookery skills. We arrived all raring-to-go at 9.30am and discovered the restaurant had been laid out for us with chef’s hats to label and colouring books. We sat in groups of 4 and each had a turn to make our own group pizza after a demonstration from Callum, who looked after us really well. The children na

Children from year 3 and 4 took part in races held at Water Orton and at Austrey Playing Fields. Due to the inclement weather conditions were very wet underfoot and the race at Austrey saw our children running in snow and hail. As always they represented the school wonderfully. All the children completed both races, despite the horrendous conditions. The girls team excelled themselves with Tilli-Beau gaining 2nd place at Austrey which, thanks to excellent running from Amelia and Roma, gained the girls team 2nd place overall. Well done to all who took part.
On the 27th April three pupils from out school attended the Food for Life Awards Ceremony at Ryton Gardens to receive our Bronze Catering award. The children delivered a short presentation about our success with composting, which we are particularly proud of. To win the award we had to show our commitment to healthy eating and submit evidence to demonstrate that we are continually striving to keep up to date food standards in school.
A big well done to all KS2 children who took part in the 2016 Read For My School challenge. We achieved silver this year with an average of over 7 books read per child, which is a fantastic effort with such a small KS2 group!
For this years Sports Relief challenge we decided to have the whole school being active for 1 hour. We challenged the children to run, speed walk or walk for the whole hour. Mr Tyson led the front runners on his bike, Mrs Bryan led the speedwalkers and Miss Griffiths and Miss Kirkby ensured we didn't loose anyone on the way.We all walked alongside the farmers field on the footpath by the playing fields up to No Mans Heath. All of the children loved the challenge, with many being surprised by their achievements. Many thanks to all parents for supporting their child in this event through s
