We have had a super Wellbeing Week in school this week! It has been a great way to end the Spring Term. We started the week by having a whole school danceathon outside on the playground with Mrs Hanson and Georgia from Burton Albion!
This week, we have also decorated stones, which are going to be put around the church ground to put a smile on the communities face as well as writing posters to say a massive thank you to you, the parents for your hard work and support during the lockdown.
Year 4 also completed a litter pick of different areas of the village to clean up Abbots Bromley and make our village look tidier. Finally, we also collected donations for a local pet charity to help the wellbeing of pets. Thank you everybody that helped with this, and brought in donations of pet food, it is very much appreciated!
Red Nose Day 19th March 2021
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day has been running since its launch in 1988, and is a day designated to raise as much money as possible for the charity – with the aid of some A-list celebs. In 2019, the British public raised over £63.4 million to help people in the UK and around the world.
Red Nose Day donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
At RCFS we have had a no uniform day and we have focused our thoughts on real life and fictional heroes. We’ve thought about what makes a real life hero and why do we admire them? What have fictional heroes got in common with the real life heroes? Some children and staff dressed up as their heroes and together we raised £141.20! Thank you all.
Comic Relief co-founder, Sir Lenny Henry, said: ‘We all need cheering up, so this year Red Nose Day will be a bit different. ‘Of course we want to raise as much money as possible for people who really need it in the UK and around the world. ‘But we also want to make you smile and bring you some laughter over the coming weeks.’ With this in mind some children told their jokes in our celebration assembly and made us all laugh!!
World Book Day 4th March 2021
Thank you to all who dressed up on World Book day, you all looked fab. It was great to really think about our favourite characters and why we like them. We hope you enjoy spending your voucher on your new book, here is the link to see the books available…
We hope you enjoyed our ‘no device’ day with lots of reading and other book/character related activities.
March 2021: Our AMAZING Ganas Home Learning Projects!
Our GANAS projects: March 2021
During the lockdown, we’ve been working really hard at home on our amazing GANAS home learning projects. ‘Ganas’ comes from the spanish word meaning desire – and these projects are designed to get our children learning creatively about a topic they are interested in. Our five class teachers have provided a basis from which to work – but the creativity and inspiration has come from our amazing children and families.
As we were unable to share our projects in school this time (hopefully we can do this again soon with our Ganas Share Expo) – the teachers have shared them in a variety of ways. Whether asking children to present their learning during a Google Meet or sharing pictures and videos – there have been so many different ideas! Models, cookery, stories, artwork and much more!
We’d love to show you our Ganas project shares – and you can find them in the Learning Zone for each class. Simply click here and then choose the class you would like to visit!
RCFS Christmas Films 2020
Due to the Covid-19 situation, we have sadly been unable to perform our annual Christmas nativity play at St. Nicholas Church. We know this is disappointing for you all – especially parents of children new to our school and those of Y4 who would have been performing in their last one.
However, whilst we are limited in what we can do at the current time, we have put together some short Christmas videos for you! We hope these will make you smile, as we the teachers had a lot of fun putting them together.
Please see below for your child’s class – and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Enjoy…

Christmas Jumper Day 4th December 2020
Guess what?…….Santa and his reindeers came to school today!!!!
You’ll not believe what happened today in school!!! The children and the teachers wrote letters to Santa and I posted them yesterday with a letter from me saying sorry we couldn’t invite Santa to our Christmas fair and parties this year.
Then, would you believe, this morning I had a ‘zoom’ invite from Santa, because he wanted to talk to all the children and thank them, not only for their letters but also for their hard work and brilliant brave attitudes to all the changes they’ve had to put up with this year. It was very exciting to see Santa, in his grotto, on our computer screens! He asked us to promise to go to sleep on Christmas eve so he can safely visit us all with presents. He told us we were all on the ’good’ list because we’ve all been so brilliant in these difficult times. Santa gave a special thank you to all those children who have had to work from home. He also sympathised with Y4 because they are missing out on their lead roles in the nativity this year, but he admired how sensible they are being about coping with the disappointment. We all look forward to making up for it all next year.
Then Santa organised for some of his reindeers and one of his elves to visit us to deliver presents to all the children.
We’ve had a wonderful end to the week to make up for no fair this week! Thank you to all parents for your donations today for our PTFA.
11th November 2020 Remembrance Day
Today we marked Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. We take the opportunity to teach the children about the history of this day and the importance of the work done and sacrifices made by service men and women both throughout history and today. Year 4 visited the village cenotaph earlier in the day and laid a wreath on behalf of us all at RCFS. Year 2 decorated remembrance lanterns that lit up the courtyard. The whole school took part in a 2 minute silence at 11am and we raised our remembrance flag. Rev. Farrington led us in a special, socially distanced, outdoor ceremony. The children were super, showing a real sense of occasion and understanding.
End of half term trick or treat? October 2020
As we were unable to have our usual halloween disco and other seasonal events we decided to end the half term with a halloween themed day! The PTFA set up a ‘Count the Ghost’ trail around the school grounds, we had tricks and treats in the classroom, made up of games, decorate a pumpkin competition and of course, some sweeties. We also had a no uniform day, and many children enjoyed dressing up! The costumes were fab!
Well done all, it was a lovely way to end the half term! Thank you to all who supported.
Sometimes you just have to put on the hat to show them who they’re dealing with!
