This morning, Class Egypt and I walked to St Mary's church to participate in 'Experience Epiphany'. The event was organised to afford our children the experience of this (lesser known, for our children) event in the Christian calendar. Through a carousel of activities, dramatisation, song and prayer the children learnt all about the journey of the 3 kings in order to see and bear gifts to the son of God, Jesus Christ.

Milepost 3 launched their Myths and Legends topic today by dressing up as famous icons from the aforementioned (determined through research on the class blogs - check here!). They then took part in a series of activities ranging from calligraphy lessons (in place of handwriting), tallest Trojan horse building challenges (in place of Maths), medieval themed pub quizzes (in place of Guided Reading) and also some 3-D art recreating their favourite icons. The children had a fantastic time thanks to the imaginations and commitment of our Milepost 3 teaching team. 'Mead all round drinketh thee' (Mr Bailey's paying though)!

See what they got up to...

Milepost 1 enjoyed their topic launch today related to 'Transport'. Happy holidaymakers dragged jampacked suitcases up the school drive and into Blue Coat airport at the start of school this morning, in search of sun, sea, sand and sangria. They weren't disappointed (apart from the sangria!) Our dedicated Key Stage 1 teaching team brought the airport experience to life: from luggage carousels to passport control; departure lounges through to in-flight movies ('Cars', quite appropriately!)

Milepost 2 recently held a competition with Mrs Haywood, the school catering manager, for the best Christmas biscuit. The best 3 would then have the satisfaction of their biscuits being made and served at the school Christmas lunch. 

Yesterday, winners Lillian, Poppy and Nelly were invited to the hall for a sneak preview before the lunchtime hordes. The girls were all very proud of their creations and they didn't last long on the plates of their schoolmates! Well done girls - McVities watch out!

This term we've had an added focus on displays in the school corridors. Displays are a key feature in any school as they both promote and celebrate children's learning, as well as being a learning resource themselves (within classrooms). Our teachers and teaching assistants have put a lot of time and care into showcasing some of our pupils' best learning this term. Just look at the results...

We held 7 Christmas performances in total (including school rehearsals), and for many the Key Stage 1 performance was a standout highlight. A parent was kind enough to hand me a CD of images taken from one of the two performances at the school Christmas Fayre today - sorry, I didn't catch your name!

Last night our PTA held an annual favourite for our pupils: The School Disco! Children turned out in their droves, dressed to the nines and ready to bop the night away (well, for an hour anyway!) The music was loud, the moves were smooth, and the behaviour was impeccable - well done children.

Our after-school 'Technology club' continues to inspire the children to bring science and technology to life with (predominantly) everyday objects. Take a look at some of their recent achievements...
