European Project 2012 – 14

You are probably aware that the school has become involved in an international education project. This is a two year project that involves pupils and teachers from five different schools communicating and learning together on a variety of topics. The other four schools in the project are from Pisa in Italy, Kolding in Denmark, Oulu in Finland and St. Mark’s SNS, just up the road in Springfield.

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun went very smoothly again this year. The children loved it and gained a lot from playing maths and card games with an adult.

Don Conroy Visit

Don Conroy Visit

On Tuesday the 20th of November the school had a visitor- renowned artist Don Conroy. Most parents will probably remember Don from his art show ‘Drawing with Don’ on The Den, a long, long time ago…:) Don spoke to the third class children about his childhood and the inspiration behind his art. He told them how he used to spend hours doodling and drawing. The children really loved listening to Don and his stories and he drew some fantastic pictures to be hung in the school. Don was a real gentleman and a pleasure to have in the school. He also commented on...
