This term Mrs Clarks’ class have been working with Mrs Bushby to complete the Kidsafe Programme. Each week we discussed ways to keep ourselves safe. The children enjoyed playing games and carrying out fun activities with the help of the Kidsafe mascot ‘KS’. Each child proudly received their certificates.
Last half term Y6F won the ‘Healthy Harton Bake Off’ and made the best healthy chicken wraps in the year group. We won a prize of a wonderful class cookbook and a session with Mrs Seales, our school cook, to make anything of our choice. We chose to make double chocolate brownies and they were delicious!
We carefully measured out and mixed all of the ingredients ourselves and we worked really well in groups, taking turns in mixing and serving our brownies. They were so delicious and there were so many leftover we got two huge servings each and even the teachers got to have some!
Y6F recently enjoyed a visit to Harton Technology College to take part in a Science workshop named Witches and Wizards. The children became Hartwarts students for the afternoon and made a series of potions and concoctions with very exciting results.
We have been very busy in Nursery during the last few weeks. On Wednesday we had our very first Stay and Play. There were lots of songs to sing and a visit from Williby Roc’s.
Y3 enjoyed some festive fun with their special adults yesterday. This half term we have been using the Polar Express to produce some wonderful creative writing styles and have love it so much we invited our parents & guardians in to get into the spirit and check out our amazing work!

We raised an amazing £470 from the sale of Anti-Bullying Week wristbands and rulers which will enable us to make a donation to the Anti-Bullying Alliance charity. Our Eco-warrior Day raised a fantastic £230!
Our School Council voted to support the WWF, The Woodland Trust and to buy a composter and gardening equipment for our allotment. All of our pupils took part in a vote regarding which endangered animals to sponsor.
We greatly appreciate your generosity in helping us to support our chosen charities.
This year as part of Anti-Bullying Week, we decided to hold our own version of The Great British Bake Off. The focus was on sharing, teamwork, and health and wellbeing.
Each year group decided on a healthy dish to make. They enjoyed creating and eating their version of the chosen dish. Our Cook judged each class’s efforts. She was looking for presentation, teamwork and the health benefits of the dish.
Each winning class in the year group will receive a class cookery book from which to choose a healthy recipe to bake with Cook. Results to be announced soon!

Nursery and Reception classes were treated to Teamwork and Friendship workshops by Jessica from Dance City on Wednesday. The children were having a super time finding out similarities and differences between them, and worked as a team to help other groups decide what they were posing as.
