Spring Festival

March 15, 2018

Leona, Lucas, Taigan, Harry, Alexandra, Kristian, Elizabeth, Oskar, Jesse and Asma from Year 5 took part in the annual Spring Festival at the Harpenden Public Halls on Wednesday evening.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the event and what a truly special evening it was! Pupils from 12 local primary schools sang a variety of uplifting songs based on the theme ‘Let’s Twist Again’ accompanied by musicians from local secondary schools. Our Year 5 pupils sang their hearts out and were beautifully behaved throughout. We are so proud of you!

A huge thank you to Mrs Cross who helped the children learn and rehearse the songs.


Sport Relief

March 9, 2018

On Friday 23rd March, the school is taking part in Sport Relief. In return for a £1 donation, all pupils are invited to come into school that day in sports clothing. This can be tracksuits, judo or karate uniform etc.

Throughout the day, pupils will be running laps round our KS2 playground co-ordinated by our Year 6 pupils who will be acting as our sports relief ambassadors. 16 laps of the playground is equal to one mile. At the end of the day, Year 6 will add up all the laps completed – our aim is to reach 200 miles in total, which will beat our record of 150 miles from 2 years ago!

Year 4 Class Assembly

March 7, 2018

Year 4 gave their class assembly this morning all about what they have been learning this term. This included their rainforest topic, the books they read and studied during Book Week, and explanation texts in English. They did very well and had learnt all their lines in time after the school closure last week had reduced their rehearsal time. We especially enjoyed their song on the rainforest. Thank you to Mrs Housley and Mrs Green for helping them to prepare.

School Closure

March 4, 2018

Thank you for your understanding in relation to our enforced school closure on Friday, caused by the severe weather conditions towards the end of last week. Travel to and from school for both staff and pupils was considered too difficult and dangerous for both drivers and pedestrians. We hope everyone stayed safe and warm, and enjoyed the fun side of the snowy weather!

Please note, in the event of any future school closures, the school will always send out a text message to all parents/carers to notify them. You do not need to call the school.

World Book Day

March 1, 2018

The snow didn’t stop us all having a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day today. Everyone looked super in their costumes!

As part of the day’s celebrations, the whole school was visited by Claire and Oliver from Jungle Bungle, who performed a musical safari adventure featuring four popular books which the classes had been given to read earlier in the week. The books were ‘How to Heal a Broken Wing’ by Bob Graham, ‘The Huge Bag of Worries’ by Virginia Ironside, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak and ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ by Roald Dahl. The show was created to celebrate friendship, understanding and the important role that reading can have in our lives. There was a lot of audience participation throughout, involving lots of singing and various actions. Everyone really enjoyed the performance!

Thank you to Mrs Davey for organising Jungle Bungle’s visit.
