Our run to the North Pole so far……..

Wow! The children had two extra days this week compared to last week so we expected a higher lap/mileage count but we were not expecting it to be this high! As a school we ran 7,706 laps which is 1,156 miles! So altogether we have run 1,661 miles and have 899 to go! Well done Tanners , keep it up! This week Ash class improved the most with a staggering 717 laps! The trophy goes to them this week! 

Furthest distance covered in the run to the North Pole!

The children ran so far last week covering an amazing 505 miles in 3361 laps of the daily mile track. That is a quarter of the way to the North Pole! 

Well done to Oak class who ran a staggering 461 laps , the most out of any class in the school!

Next week the trophy will be given to the most improved score! The trophy is on display in Oak class’s window. 

Maybe try running an extra lap next week! 

Winners of Tri-Golf !

In October, we took part in a virtual tri-golf event. We were divided into three teams and our teams scores were added together and sent to the sports partnership leaders. We played against Divine Saviour, Abbots Langley and St. Paul’s…. and…. one of our teams won! Well done to Jack C, Daisy H, Anastasia N, Ben W, Maison S, Adam H, Peter H, Darcy G, Joseph N and Owain M!

Then, our results were compared to all schools in the Three Rivers Sports Partnership and …… our team won! Fantastic!! Well done!

The medals were sent into school and they have been quarantined for over 72 hours.

Anti-bullying day

In Ash class we talked about why we came to school in odd socks. We said all people should be treated the same and with kindness. 

We watched Andy and the Odd Socks sing ‘The Kids are United’ . We learnt that it’s much nicer to be happy and kind to each other than cross or rude. 

We had fun showing off our socks!

Look at our letters!

In phonics we have recapped on the letter names and sounds for Ii, Nn, Mm and Dd. Once again the children accepted the challenge to ‘have a go’ at writing the letters using the rhymes taught.

The rhymes are: i – whoosh in freeze, down the insect’s body dot for the head. n – whoosh in freeze, down Nobby up and over his net. m – whoosh in freeze, Maisie mountain mountain. d – whoosh in freeze, around the dinosaur’s bottom up his tall neck and down to his feet.

Look at our letters!

In phonics we have recapped on the letter names and sounds for Ss, Aa, Tt and Pp. The children have accepted the challenge to ‘have a go’ at writing the letters using the rhymes taught. We are very impressed – lots of recognisable letters!

The rhymes for the letters taught are: s – whoosh in freeze, slither down the snake. a – whoosh in freeze, around the apple and down the leaf. t – whoosh in tall freeze, down the tower across the tower. p – whoosh in freeze, down the parrot’s tail and around the pirate’s face.
