Sing a Song by Isobel

Today all the year groups recorded a Christmas song to put on a big CD that people can buy. 6NS’ song was ‘The Holly And The Ivy’ whereas 6FS sang ‘Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly’ a traditional song and the whole school is going to sing ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ together.   It costs £6.75 for one CD to hear your child sing with his/her class .



Fabulous Fireworks by Holly

On the 9th of November the school had a fire work night over 4000 people were there and the event raised £15,000 .  There were loads of stalls there and when the fireworks  came on they were so eye catching and loud and they lasted for quite a while. There was a mind blowing band called the Hairy Monks which I really enjoyed.


The £10 Challenge by Imogen

On Friday the 15th November, the £10 challenge took place at Heathlands  Primary School during break and lunchtime. Each class set up stalls, or entertainment in their classroom and many of the classes raised a minimum £100. Altogether, the school raised £2337.75! Because we raised so much on that one day, we split it between the tragic typhoon in the Philippines and children in need and half to the typhoon appeal.

An amazing trip by Haydar

This year (2013) the year 6 classes went to KINGSWOOD (it lives by it’s name) it was amazing!! The best activity was outdoor laser a game that you have a head set and a blaster.  The scariest activity was leap ... of faith! You climb up a three meter pole and stand on a platform and leap to grab a pole that is hanging above the platform. Good luck out there!

My time at Kingswood by Younes

On the 30th of September year 6 children went to Kingswood on Monday. When the day came for the Kingswood everybody was excited about the trip. It took two and a half hours to get there. When we got there we were told to put all our bags to the Tudor room. After that we told who`s dorms we were in. Then we were told what groups we were in. I was in group T and Bandi was also.  

Champions By Alex

On the 15th  of November our school football team travelled to the Weston Homes Community Stadium to compete in a 5 –side tournament  against 8 different schools. We won our league, there were 2 different leagues with 5 in one and 4 in the other and the people who won their league go into a final and we took part in this final against North Primary School and came out on top with a 1-0 win. Even better news we didn’t concede a single goal and we were unbeaten throughout the tournament. The team also have another game coming up against St Michaels School feel free to come and watch.
