Y4 Design Club

The Year 4 Design Club has had a terrific start! They made posters to present to the governors and Mr Seagrove, which helped them to acquire a business loan of £250. The club plan to use this money to buy materials for their projects. They will make products to sell at the Christmas, Easter and Summer Fayres, in order to pay the loan back. They have already started making these lovely decorative baubles to sell at the Christmas Fayre. In addition, the club have written letters to various businesses to ask if they would be willing to donate materials to the club.


All of KS2 enjoyed a treat today when Artefacts visited to perform a play based on Greek mythology and mathematical challenges.

Y3 took part in workshops this afternoon with the actors.

Football Visitors

Our KS2 children enjoyed an assembly with a difference today when Jon King and Julio Arca came in to discuss holiday football camps which are run at Mortimer CA. They also mentioned their ‘Wizard Camp’ for football skills which runs on a Wednesday at Mortimer CA.

For more information please see leaflets which KS2 children will be bringing home. Holiday camps are suitable for children aged 4 to 14 and are for girls and boys.

Football Teams

Both our A and B Team football squad were in action last week. The A Team were particularly successful scoring victories over Ashley and Westoe Crown.

5PM concluded their recent fencing lessons with a very exciting competition. The children were divided into two teams: the Fierce Fighters versus the Fire Blasters. At the end, both teams were drawn. In a nail biting deciding bout, the Fire Blasters were victorious.

Fruit to Suit – New Team

Congratulations to the new Fruit to Suit tuck shop staff who were appointed last week. They had a full afternoon of training on Friday and will be shadowing the current staff in their roles for the next two weeks.

Girls’ Football

The girls had a great afternoon playing football last Thursday. Both teams played brilliantly with the A team winning both of their games. Well done girls!

Fire Safety

Brian from the fire service gave year 5 a very useful presentation about the dangers of fire. The children listened attentively and asked sensible questions.

Fruit to Suit

Lisa from Fruit to Suit came to introduce the Year 5 children to the roles involved in running the school’s tuck shop. The children now have the opportunity to apply for these jobs and Miss Anderson will be selecting her staff shortly.

Y5 Fencing

Some of our Y5 children were able to experience a fencing lesson last week as part of taster to new sports in the curriculum. Our children took to it quickly, they listened attentively and applied the strong stance needed, the etiquette of the game and enjoyed learning some of the basic moves.

Great work Y5!
