Reception have had a fabulous day planning a ‘Gruffalo’ tea party. They worked incredibly hard to write him an invitation each, baked their very own Gruffalo Crumble following a simple recipe and couldn’t believe their eyes when he actually came. Together they played party games, ate some delicious treats and they were very proud to show him the decorations they made for him. A wonderful day to celebrate a fantastic first term for our Reception children and they continue to be inspired to write to him!
Thank you to Miss Warren, Miss Wilcox and Mrs Raynor for a lovely day. The Gruffalo had a great time although felt rather hot by the end! Such a fun day! ... See MoreSee Less
Year three have had a really enjoyable and action-packed curriculum day learning all about the Stone Age. Today included: - using clay to make tools & stone age caves - mixing, kneading and baking salt dough to make stone age jewellery - being a hunter/gatherer and using berries (eg. raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries & cranberries) to mix & use as paints. They then created landscapes at sunrise! - experiencing life outdoors around the fire pit, and an extra treat of eating marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate outside.
Thank you to Mrs De Luca and Mrs Lyman-Clark for creating such a fabulous day and to the grown-ups at home for sending your children in the most fabulous outfits! ... See MoreSee Less
If you are looking for a Reception place for September 2022, you are invited to book a one to one tour after school with Miss Jenkins, Headteacher. Our next tours are on:
* Saturday, 11th December
* Various after school slots are also available
Your child is also most welcome so that you can see them in our school environment and ask them what they think too!
If you are vulnerable and will be unable to visit in person, a virtual appointment can be arranged.
Our school has a forward-thinking curriculum whilst maintaining village traditions. Children travel as far as ten miles to come to our school and our community welcomes all to the Blisworth School family. We have a range of before and after school provision to help parents who need this.
Please do contact the school office via the Facebook contact button to arrange your tour. ... See MoreSee Less
This week has flown by, just as they always do. We have seen some huge successes with our children's learning journey this week and I have loved being stopped by many of them and taken to see their work or told about how much they have achieved when they pass me in school. It's wonderful to see how much their achievements in class mean to them.
A highlight this week has been so many children being extra excited about choosing their books and sharing their choices with me. Many are enjoying reading a favourite series and some younger children have shown off their reading skills to me - saying 'look how well I can read this first time!' Lots of our younger children have been working very hard with their phonics. Another fabulous moment was the arrival of our supply teacher, Mr Waugh, to award six pineapples to children who won the home learning challenge in Year 6! Amazing to see how much they enjoyed the winning announcement and what a prize!
Photos this week are to celebrate their reading and I have also included some of the beautiful, winter sunsets that we see behind our large trees in our forest school and den building area.
Have a great weekend everyone - especially if you are starting your family Christmas adventures!
I was going to wait to share our new Harry Potter common room with you all until the finishing touches such as wizard pictures, hanging Nimbus 2000s and arm chairs were added... however, those of you who know me well will know that I'm too excited to wait!
So here are photos showing you the common room so far and there are also pictures of the area during the work undertaken.
Thank you to Mrs Dunkley for creating the wonderful fireplace and to FOBS for helping to fund the room.
We can't wait to see our children's faces on Monday... and perhaps a few of the grown-ups too! I will post again as we add more to the room.
Today’s Friday post is to say a huge thank you to you all! We raised over £200 for Children in Need. The children looked fabulous today. Children enjoyed their day and hot dinners had a themed bear.
It’s been a really great week - the cross-country tournament kicked the week off and the fun has continued with many children running at lunch amongst a range of other physical activities. Today’s dancing at lunch was particularly impressive!
As always we burst with pride at how hard our children have worked.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and see you at the gates on Monday!
