A little taster to show you what you missed!

Well done all.

What Good Work in April?

Each month we hold a Good Work Assembly to recognise special achievements made by the children in their class work.
These hard earned awards go to usually not more than two students in each class and are very special to receive.
At this monthly assembly Mr Holgate and the recipients have an opportunity to showcase their good work before an audience of their school mates, teachers and parents.
All good work is then placed on display in the main entrance for the enjoyment and acknowledgement of all for the coming month.

Well done Aden Enslin in Reception. Good work!

Well done Lilia Davis in Year 1. Good work!

Well done Molly Furnival in Year 1. Good work!

Well done Alexa Barrass in Year 2. Good work!

Well done Seoras Ogilvie in Year 3. Good work!

Well done Neva Franz in Year 4. Good work!

Well done Finlay Ogilvie in Year 5. Good work!

Orly participates in the Year Two Paper Aeroplane Contest

The Year Two's Annual Paper Aeroplane Contest in Science

Each year in science during our study of Forces, the children make paper aeroplanes to study "pushes and pulls."   We have a contest in which the children get three tries at throwing their paper aeroplanes indoors.  We measure the farthest distance in metres for each child.  Coming in first place this year was Thomas Holgate with 9.85 metres; second place was Ibrahim Jansson with 9 metres; third place was Freddie Sington with 8 metres.  All the children did really well and put a lot of effort into the contest.  The Tabuk Primary School record still belongs to Tara Nicholls who had 16.2 metres.  Tara was in Year 2 during the 2006-2007 year.
