Resilience in action!

Today we took a team of Year 5 & 6 from Owls Class to a school sports event at Clip 'n' Climb. They each did 3 challenges and I was impressed by both their skills and resilience, even when they thought it may be too tricky!

What a busy few weeks of Christmas festivities, with a party, Christingle service at church, trip to the Theatre Royal, Xmas dinner and our fabulous performance of Baboushka! Well done everyone and have a good rest!

It was great seeing so many parents in school to join in with making Xmas decorations on Friday. The children had a great time (although Kirsty's hoover had to do overtime!).

Children in Need

We had a fun day on Friday with rainbow mufti, Pudsey biscuits, a bring & buy sale and we even tried a sponsored silence! It was harder than we thought but Owls just managed the longest at 20 minutes! We also linked this to our 'respect' message and thought about some of the different children we would be helping.

The children enjoyed their start to Judo Club, thanks to Ross for his time! They quickly learned some new skills.

We enjoyed a day of djembe workshops, learning call and response and pulse and rhythm. It was good fun and noisy!

Happy Birthday!

This week we have celebrated 5 years since Sparkwell All Saints Primary School opened, time flies when you're having fun! We celebrated today with a picnic lunch and birthday cake and all the children made a card. Some of our older children had some lovely reflections on their first day and the last 5 years.
