Carmel’s Easter Treasure Hunt was a great success today. We will announce the winning house in  collective worship tomorrow.

A huge thank you to the House Carmel’s Leaders. They organised the whole day and demonstrated their superb leadership skills.


The PTA rewarded all children with a chocolate egg- this was a welcome treat after the fast pace treasure hunt -in the cold Spring air!

Carmel’s Book Sale

By | FS2, House Carmel, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Thank you for for supporting House Carmel’s book sale with your kind book donations.


The book sale went really well but has been cut short due to school closing. So when we return to school we will continue to sell books at break times.

We have a great selection of good quality books and most books cost 50p. All money raised will go towards buying new seating for the library area.


Thank you

‘Book in a box’ competition

By | FS1, FS2, House Carmel, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Book Week 26th February – 2nd March
“Book in a box” competition

Our Book Week Competition this year is to create a “book in a box” with super prizes for every year group!

You will need a box, which can be a cereal box, shoe box or equivalent. Choose your favourite book and decorate your box (inside and out) to represent the different parts of the book.

 You could draw or cut out pictures of the characters or significant objects from the book.
 You could recreate a scene from the book inside.
 Include interesting quotes from the text.
 Don’t forget to include the title and author of the book too.
 Make it as colourful and exciting as you can.

For inspiration look at examples of books in boxes on Google “book in box project ideas”. Also Google “book in a box Southam Primary school” and they have some great ideas on their website too.
Label your box clearly with your name and year group and bring your box by Monday 26th of February for judging. Prizes will be awarded at our celebration of the week assembly on Friday 2nd March.

Get Creative!

This afternoon house leaders have been very busy writing questionnaires.


They want to know your ideas to improve the school. Next week they will be coming into your classrooms to find out what you want. They will be asking you:

-How the school can help you form friendships?

-How the school can celebrate your talents?

-How the school can improve writing and the library area?

-How the school can improve worship?
