Thank you to everyone who donated to our rabbit fund by choosing names for our two rabbits. We can now announce that the names, which were chosen at random, are Toffee and Liquorice. Congratulations to Eliza Blinkhorn from Year 2. All money raised will go towards the up keep of the rabbits.
The world’s biggest short-story writing competition for kids has returned and we can’t wait to read this year’s stories! Please read all of the information HERE to find out everything you need to know about 500 Words and how you can enter…
‘Mum’, ’Mummy’, ’Mother’ ‐ whatever name you use, your mother figure plays an important role in your life. Always there when you need her, offering love and support. With Mother’s Day in March, why not celebrate your love for your mum or mother figure through poetry, because a mum can come in many forms. You could dedicate your poem to your stepmum, grandmother or female figure who has always been there for you. Would you like to say thank you for all the things she’s done for you or tell her why she is such a huge part of your life? What is it about her that is so special and makes her better than the rest?
How to enter!
Imagine you’re about to swap trekking boots with Bear Grylls and head off on your own epic adventure!
Tell us what you’d take on your trip and the top ten favourite entries will win copies of each book!
Would you bring along a bag of gobstoppers so you’d never need to cook over a campfire? A wind-up radio so you can boogie with the orangutans of Borneo?
Be as wild as you like – or just very sensible and wise!
This week marks 20 years since the first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!
To celebrate Bloomsbury have launched a magical schools competition where one lucky school will win a library makeover in the Hogwarts house colours, sponsored by Bookspace, plus a trunk of all the Harry Potter books from Bloomsbury!
Twenty lucky runners-up will also win copies of the paperback House Editions and themed goody bags.
So… get busy designing your ‘Magical Library’. You can find all the details for the competition here.
Work together or individually.
Together we all raised £1,200.00.
These funds will be used to pay for some amazing extra-curricular activities in KS1 during the next half term.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part.
Well done to everyone who took part in the Easter bunny hunt. It was a huge success and the KS1 children showed enthusiasm and excitement about the ‘hunt for the bunny’. We are so grateful to everyone who took part and we will let you know in due course how much we raised as there is still money coming in.
