On Tuesday, 8 members of the school football team had a fantastic opportunity to attend a Watford football club primary stars tournament. The team played amazing football and were the team in our group to beat. Unfortunately St Albert the Great were stronger and they went through to the semi finals, then the final which they then won. Mrs Chapman, Mr Creamer and I were very proud of their footballing skills and team work.
Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.
We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
Today Mrs Bastable, from Watford Schools Trust, came into school again to talk about Jesus and the parables he told. We focussed on The Calming of the Sea. We acted out the story and saw the miracle of water being turned to wine! (It was really food colouring but it amazed the children!).
We are very proud of the choir who sang 7 Christmas songs to the residents of Arden House. Well done everyone! Merry Christmas!
Today, the house captains, head boy, head girl, deputy head boy and deputy head girl organised a film quiz for Key Stage 2. Year 3 and 4 did their quiz this morning.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
We had a fun afternoon learning how to strengthen paper. We found that layering and folding made it stronger.
Holly’s was so strong that she could stand on it for a few seconds!
We have been learning how to write Kennings.
Our Kennings are poems about us.
