This year, our annual Bauble Competition raised money for Prostate Cancer UK (in memory of our former Chair of Governors, John Nicholson).

Governors and staff joined the children for their Christmas lunch.  We were very excited when Santa visited us, distributing gifts and wishing us all a Merry Christmas!

Wraparound children organised and ran a pop-up cafe to raise funds for resources for their new premises.  They were very grateful for the beautiful cakes – baked and donated by parents and grandparents.

The school looked even more festive when children and staff arrived in their festive jumpers!  Children were very keen to support this event, as money raised goes to Save the Children.

Once again, our youngest children enchanted us all with their Nativity performance.  They performed to a packed audience in St Andrew’s Church, and everyone agreed that this marks the start of “Christmas”!

 Our second Open Morning takes place on Tuesday 13 November, from 9.30 am to 11.30 am.  If your child is due to start school in September 2019 and you would like to visit our school, please contact us on 01522 791031.

 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.
