We welcomed families and the winder community were invited to join us for our Harvest service in St Andrew’s Church. All of our children participated, and their harvest gifts were gratefully received by Alive! Church’s Restore project which provides support for people in need.
Our wonderful PTA organised and ran a very successful Macmillan Coffee Morning. For the first time, we held this in the Memorial Hall, and the event was well supported by the whole village. Nearly £400 was raised for this very important charity. Thank you to everyone who supported.
There was great excitement when one of our local farmers brought his tractor to school! The children were so excited when they were allowed to climb aboard and sit in the cab. Reception children had been looking at the story of The Little Red Hen – they enjoyed seeing the grains of wheat, oilseed rape and barley. Year 1 children used this experience to help with their topic of “inventions – looking at how the tractor was designed and why it had such big wheels.
Our Year 5/6 had a wonderful time at PGL, Caythorpe Court. They stayed for 2 nights and took part in lots of exciting activities. This visit is always the highlight of our older children’s year, promoting team building and making memories.
On February 9th Reverend Lorna led a wonderful Collective Worship. She told the story of Jesus in the desert. Every child was invited to lay a cross on the hall floor and these individual crosses were made into one large cross. Every child was involved and engaged in such a lovely activity!
On Monday 4 December, children attended the Christingle Service in St Andrew’s Church. They had worked very hard on putting together a meaningful and very accomplished service. Several parents commented that they had thoroughly enjoyed it and that this was “the best ever”!
Children came to school wearing spots and gave donations in support of Children in Need. The School Council organised a decorated cookie competition, with a sports theme. Altogether, we raised an impressive £194 (including contributions from Potterhanworth Pre School).
We are absolutely delighted to have won the ASA School Swimming Charter Primary School of the Year award for 2017!
This is an outstanding achievement for our small school.
