Christmas is Coming (soon-ish)

Well done to all the children who completed the designs for their Christmas cards, mugs, bags and tea towels.

You’ll be pleased to know they have arrived. Here are just a few of the boxes waiting to be unpacked.


Mrs Lofts is working hard and will shortly have them on their way to you.




Thank you to everyone who has ordered any items and helped raise over £500 towards school funds.

There are going to be some very lucky grandparents on Christmas day!

Halloween Disco

On Thursday 2nd November we were invaded by some very scary characters!

Fortunately for us it was just the children dressed up in some amazing costumes for the Halloween Disco. Phew!






As you can see, a lot of fun was had by all.







A big thank you to everyone that helped out.

Y2 ‘Mathemagicians’ 3D shape

Today we were sorting 3D shapes on a Venn diagram.

We had to talk about the shapes and decide for ourselves how we were going to sort them (choose our own criteria) and then Miss Appleby had to work out what we had done.

(Fortunately she could – which meant we were right!

Harry and Eloise: Is it a prism and does it have right any right-angled vertices?
Charlie and Oscar: Is it a prism and does it have 8 or more vertices?
Gracie and Ethan: Is it a prism and does it have any right-angled vertices?
Maddy and Cameron: Does it have curved and flat faces?
Ryan and Zach: Is it a prism and does it have 5 or more faces?

Make Your Laugh Count – Red Nose Day 2017

We’ve been doing our part all week to raise money to help others less fortunate than ourselves to have a better future. Together we have raised over £600 – WELL DONE everyone!

A very BIG THANK YOU to all the wonderful parents and children who baked cakes and to all the children who bought and ate them for charity! A special thank you too to my maths group who have been giving up their break times all week to sell the cakes and raffle tickets.

   Put a nose on it!


We’ve had two exciting assemblies today. In the first assembly raffle winners got to choose a member of staff and then paint their face! Check out some of our other blog pages for some more pictures. Here’s Mr Willett – just another day as a minion!


This afternoon was what everyone had been waiting for…the chance to PIE a teacher!

Here are a few of the staff victims volunteers.




Jensen (with a little help from Mrs Augusta) was especially happy to choose Mr Willett for his custard pie.


Have a look here (just scroll down to find us) on the Grimsby Telegraph for some more pictures of our Red Nose Day Fun.



Finding missing coordinates

Today Miss A’s Maths Group were working really hard to solve some challenging problems, which involved finding missing co-ordinates in all 4 quadrants. They worked collaboratively to share their tips and methods.

Some even even decided they’d like to be the teacher today!

Here is Sammy showing us just how easy it is.


And here is Ruby explaining her very own ‘Banana Method’
