This is a website where children can improve their speed in learning times tables. During a special themed day, it was awesome to see the school dressed as rock stars to celebrate how good we are at our times tables. There were some great examples where children have collected loads more coins as part of their ‘times-tabling’.
The costumes the children wore were fantastic and it was great to see so many parents join us at the end of the day for children to show us their costumes and their best times-tables rock songs!

It was so wonderful to see families join together at the end of March to decorate and plant up a bucket. They look so lovely and they are positioned around the village to brighten up the community. Look out for them when you are out and about. Including the cake sale, we raised £179.53. This will go towards buying a defibrillator for Oakthorpe village. Many thanks to the support from FOV and Oakthorpe Church to make this possible

Even well into the Autumn term, we are still excited to celebrate our fantastic Gold Awards from last year. Three of our Bronze Ambassadors picked up our Gold Award from the NWLSSP Presentation evening. Also, our local MP, Andrew Bridgen, visited the school to congratulate the staff and children for the excellent achievement. The children were very keen to share their Ideal Selves and talked about how they help them to support their mental health.

In November 2018, the whole school got involved in events across the community to help the children to understand the significance of the armistice centenary. The children took part in a remembrance service at Donisthorpe Memorial with Donisthorpe Primary School. Other children had the chance to take part in a remembrance service at Measham memorial with Measham C of E Primary School and St. Charles Roman Catholic Primary School.
The whole school also created artwork and poetry to display at the PoppyFest at Moira Methodist Church.

All the children from across the school had a great time enjoying being active across the whole park. I’m not sure if the children or the deer across the park were more excited! This gave the children a great opportunity to try out their orienteering and map reading skills as well as getting wet in the river doing some river dipping and classifying the living things they found.
It was also a great to have some space in the outdoors enjoying the fresh air and understanding that learning is possible anywhere.

On Thursday afternoon, Key stage two took part in the athletics competition at Saffron Lane in Leicester. There were more than 30 different schools from the local area competing. Thankfully, the weather cooled down for the occasion and all children showed fantastic sportsmanship throughout the day. They all cheered each other on from the back of the stands which could be heard all the way down at the start line!
Unfortunately, we did not bring back any medals but we did return with pride, gratitude and hope for next year.

This week the children are making their products ready to sell at the 'market place' on Friday 26th!
One of our keen investors has been in to school today to check that their money is being spent wisely and that production is on time. The Humble Hamsters were happily making a mess during the making of their items and Mrs Culpan was lucky to escape without any clay on her! There's an incredible buzz around school and some very enterprising young people working hard.

What an amazing array of costumes for Comic Relief! The ideas and creativity for our 'come dressed as a joke day' was truly inspiring! So very many great ideas and we raised £90 for a great cause. We have a collection of their jokes in a book in the corridor. Thanks to all the parents for some fantastic outfit ideas and for helping the children learn their jokes!

What an amazing week of deep reflection about ourselves and others' beliefs and values. It has been lovely this week to see children totally immersed in questioning, reflecting and discussing what different people believe or don't believe. Truly respectful responses from some of our youngest children in exploring the biggest of ideas. It was great to have the Phillips centre with us with visitors from Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Sikhism, allowing the children to question and compare the similarities and differences between them. It was lovely also to welcome a lay preacher from 'Open The Book' into school for a real interrogation by year 4 about their faith in Christianity and what they believed about God. It really was simply breath-taking to hear.
