Children In Need 2017

Posted in General News | No Comments »

We were all so excited to come to school ready to raise money for Children In Need.  Some of us were dressed in spots, some wearing our Pudsey ears and some of us even got our face painted with spots!

After lunch, Beech class joined the whole school in the hall where Mrs Thomas announced that we were lucky enough to have a very important visitor!

We could not believe it when who should walk into the hall…?

PUDSEY BEAR!  We were all so surprised and cheered so loudly it hurt the Teacher’s ears!

Mrs Thomas presented Pudsey with a big cheque for all the money that we had raised at school for Children In Need and she even gave Pudsey a big hug!

Afterwards, we all practiced ‘The Dab’.  Don’t we all look great!


Mrs Thomas even showed us how to ‘Dab’ with Pudsey Bear!  This made everyone cheer the loudest!

At the end, Pudsey had his photograph taken with the whole school!  We had so much fun with Pudsey and think he promotes such a wonderful charity helping to raise money for Children In Need!

Today we had the grand opening of our new role play area, Beech Garage!

Mrs Fisher has been working so hard to get it ready and set it all up, we are even going to have a car to paint with wheels to fix on with nuts and bolts!  Thank you Mrs Fisher xx


Mrs Thomas was invited to cut the ribbon at our grand opening!

The children have loved playing in it today!


Remembrance Day

Posted in General News | 1 Comment »

In readiness for our Remembrance commemorations at The Cenotaph, the children were busy making their own poppies out of red fabric, netting and black pom poms!  They showed great fine motor skills and perseverance to each create their own poppy to go on a class wreath.

Mrs Fisher and Mrs Graham worked really hard to assemble the wreath…doesn’t it look fantastic!  It’s hard to believe that it started out as 3 yellow sponges!

On Friday 11th November we walked with the whole school up to The Cenotaph at St. John’s Church.

Unfortunately we were greeted with really heavy rain and so our Commemoration service took place inside the Church.  Harley and Adelaide were chosen to represent Beech Class and lay down our class wreath at the front of the church.  They did a super job and were very respectful.

Each class created their own poppy wreath to place down at the memorial.  They all looked beautiful.

The service was beautiful and very moving.

In the afternoon our school hall was filled with parents, Grandparents and visitors from our local community.

Beech class had worked hard with Mrs O’Donnell to practice singing the song ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary!’

We performed this on the stage to everyone in the hall and sounded AMAZING! We all had smiles on our faces and even had some actions to go with our song.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it and Mrs O’Donnell was extremely proud!

Well done Beech Class!
