Congratulations to our year 4 Hockey team who competed in the Shobnall competition on Friday 29th March. Along with over 12 other schools in two tables our team played 5 matches trying to get through the rounds to be within the top two. Unfortunately we were up against some very tough teams and didn’t get through the round stage.
Plastic Fantastic Fashion Show, March 2019
Thank you for your support with the #PassOnPlastic fashion show on Thursday. Not only did it give us the opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and how to reduce pollution it also created an opportunity for us to be creative and put on our fun show. The children were brilliant and so confident, we were really proud.
It was such a wonderful afternoon and we raised awareness of this great cause to help with the issue of plastic pollution in our oceans. Burton Albion and Billy Brewer commented on how much they enjoyed the visit to our school to join in with raising awareness for this issue. We will be making a small donation from the money raised to the charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) that are based in Devon and are devoted to cleaning up our seas.
Well done to Lily, our ex pupil, for running the whole project! Brilliant job.
The money raised (£146.00) will be put together with the disco money to buy a brand new resource called ‘1 decision’ that will help us deliver an improved PSHEe (Personal, social, health, economic education) curriculum.
Thank you again for your co-operation.
Email from Grandparent said: ‘Just a short email to say how much I enjoyed the show yesterday. So much work put in by staff and pupils who were all very enthusiastic. What a brilliant idea from the young lady concerned.’
Mother’s day lunch, March 2019
Thank you for all the lovely comments from Mum’s and Gran’s who came for lunch this week. We are glad you enjoyed it and we have passed on your thanks to all the staff involved to make this happen.
Email from one parent: ‘Thank you so much for the invitation for Mother’s Day lunch. It was so lovely eating with the children. They should all be very proud of how well mannered and behaved they were. A real credit to you and all of your wonderful staff. Please pass on my thank you to the catering team, the food was delicious!’
Year 4 visit Hawkstone Park, March
Year 4 have visited Hawkstone Park near Hodnet, Shropshire as part of their exciting fantasy-fuelled topic Through the Wardrobe.
Hawkstone Park is one the most unusual and unique landscapes in the UK – home to fascinating follies, special trees, grottos and towers. Even facing the typical British weather didn’t put us off! Mud, rain and lots of smiles were the order of the day.
Hopefully, our wonderful visit will inspire the children to write fantasy stories. After all, the BBC chose Hawkstone Park in the late 1980s to film part of their Narnia series.
Check out some of our photo picks from today!
GANAS project share – 13th February 2019
Thank you for all the wonderful and creative projects that have come into school this week. We hope you enjoyed all the collaborative learning that has taken place around your projects. We certainly feel the children get a lot out of this style of learning. The variety of projects is what amazes us from cakes to powerpoints, to blogs, to models, to posters, to games, it’s extraordinary! Well done all!
Quote from one of my Governors who came:
‘What a glorious visit today to view the children’s work. I spoke to several. They were enthusiastic and fascinated not just with their own projects but everyone else’s too. What a lot of vocabulary these projects stimulate. Pass my congratulations onto the staff and parents and children for enabling it.’
Chinese New Year, February 2019
Thank you to the PTFA for funding our Chinese New Year workshops.
Chinese new year celebrations began on the 5th February 2019 and last for 15 days. 2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig.
Dragon dances are performed at New Year to scare away evil spirits. The dragon symbolises good luck, long life and wisdom.
We had a visit from a professional dancer who brought a traditional Chinese dragon, parasols and fans for the whole class to create an exciting dance performance. These performances were showcased at the end of the school day for everyone to enjoy.
Reception class made their own Chinese dragon and danced with it in assembly. See their wonderful display in the hall..

Health & Well-Being Event
What a huge success! From staff & parent Zumba to kids Smoothie Workshops, we had it all. My thanks to those parents who made it, I hope you enjoyed yourselves? Feedback from the event has been very positive especially for Emma Heathcote, Dietitian, who delivered an excellent presentation on Nutrition and bought you all up to date with the latest myths about food.
Our school partners, Hoar Cross Hall, were also there to present the raffle prizes and launch the fabulous corporate membership available to everyone within the RCFS community. I also have to thank Waitrose for their very generous donation of fruit & veg for the “5 a day” pupil workshops, we had lots of fun exploring and tasting a variety of concoctions, some quite tasty!!!!! others, well what can I say your children did test their taste buds if nothing else.
I hope to do more health & well-being events soon so watch this space.
