World Book Day 2019

By | News

It will be World Book Day on Thursday 7th March this year. We would like to celebrate by dressing up on the day, but this year our theme won’t be a book. Instead we would like the children to dress up as a word! This will also compliment the vocabulary instruction we have been focussing on in our classes.


There are lots of ideas for words and costumes on the internet. Here are just a few below.


There will be house point prizes for each class and a whole school vocabulary parade in the hall for everyone to admire your vocabulary choices.


Be creative and have fun!

Year 5’s Anglo Saxon Day

By | History, Year 5

Year 5 had a very special visitor last week! They got to meet an Anglo-Saxon warrior. Throughout the day, the warrior told the children why the Anglo -Saxons first came to Britain during the rule of the Romans, what they dressed like and why the Vikings came over. 

They were able to carry out an Anglo-Saxon King’s burial and found out what they took with them to heaven, learnt how the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings both went into battle and their war chants. 

Year 5 then learnt about the end of the Anglo-Saxon rule over Britain and how it came to an end through the Battle of Stamford Bridge against the Vikings and the Battle of Hastings against the Normans. 

It was a truly enjoyable day, with the children all learning lots of new facts and information about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.

Top news for this week. The KS1 team went to an athletics competition held at Flanderwell. Mrs Jepson said that they all enjoyed the event and performed excellently. Jack came 1st in the javelin and we are really proud of him.  Also Harry came 1st in the running race with an outstanding time. Well done to all the children involved.

Sports Council Blog

By | Sport, Sporting Excellence, Year 6

Our sports council have asked if they can write a blog on the website. So here are their words:


Hello sports fans, this is this weeks hot news. First, we had the Y3-Y4 boys coming second in the South Yorkshire football finals. They came so close and left with their heads held high. Also, Mrs Jepson said that their performance was outstanding.


Yesterday, Y5-Y6 team A did an outstanding routine in there advanced level gymnastics. They came second and nearly secured first place for the Rotherham finals. Team B advanced level came third with another outstanding performance and should be proud coming in this position.


Coming up

Coming up we have the athletics and I hope the students competing try their very best and give it one hundred percent. Also we have the Y4, Y5 and Y6 cross country South Yorkshire finals and I hope they enjoy it and try their very best.


Yours sincerely

Sports Council and Mrs Jepson
