We had a fantastic time at the KS1 Quad Kids competition last week. The competition involved teams of 10, taking part in four events (50m sprint, 300m run, throwing and a standing jump). The children were very focused and determined, and came away with three individual prizes for top scores, as well as the main team prize! Congratulations to both of our teams, as well as Tilly, Will and Cory, who scooped those individual points total prizes.
Thank you to all of our parent helpers on this event, as well as to Miss Leggett for organising.
We had a fantastic day for the Oxford United Day. A big thank you to Elliot in Year 2 for winning the competition and for winning us this brilliant prize! We started the day by having photos with the Oxford United Mascot, Olly the Ox and having an assembly. Then we had our session with James, the Oxford United in the Community coach. We had so much fun and we even get to keep a t-shirt each!
On Monday 1st July, we played Danish Longball, It went on until 5pm. We were playing against Cumnor, they were very fast. The aim of the games is to score the most points. It was really fun. Me, Noah, Archie, Alfie, Ollie, TJ, William and Sasa went.
We would also like to say thank you to the staff who helped the team at this event.

As part of our transition work, Foundation Stage and Year One buddied up and spent some time in the Year 1 class together. We had a lovely time showing our buddies around the classroom, playing, sharing and having fun together.
We began our new unit of work in English by becoming pirates! Mrs Smith led a drama session exploring life on board a pirate ship. Take a look at the photos and videos from our session.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been working on our Great Fire of London Art. First, we used paints to create the sky. We thought carefully about how we could show the fire and used colour mixing to create the colours that we wanted for our background. We then used black card to cut out the silhouettes of the buildings. Don't they look fantastic!
We really enjoyed having a try at Maypole Dancing today. Take a look at some photos from our session:
Take a look at what we have been up to so far during the Summer Terms. The children have enjoyed being photographers and taking lots of their own photos too!
This week we finished making our own houses in the style of those from the time of the Great Fire. We were very excited to head out to the Forest School area with Miss Williams where we created our very own Great Fire of London. The houses were arranged to make a street and one of the buildings was chosen as Thomas Farriner's bakery. We watched carefully to see how quickly the fire spread. Luckily, some of our houses survived because of the fire breaks.
Take a look at the video of our Great Fire of London themed dance.
