Pirate Day

Shiver me timbers what a day we had on Wednesday22nd March! Pirate Ron anchored his ship at Bernards Heath for a day of fun and learning opportunities. 90 pirates raided our classrooms at 8:50AM as we opened our doors. There were stripes, cutlasses, parrots, and eye patches galore. Pirate Ron taught us about pirate life, battles, and historical characters. The children enjoyed an upbeat puppet show, and took an active part in finding the lost treasure. After a hearty lunch the children got stuck in making fantastic puppets. There were sharks, octopuses, mermaids, parrots, and cats.  We then disembarked to the playground and recreated epic battles. “This is the best day ever!” James Y. “I liked the part when he caught the shark” Connor. “Pirate  Ron was so funny, I liked it when he made the ‘oh’ sound” Olivia. Thanks to Pirate Ron for visiting us and thank you to all the children and grown ups for going to so much effort with their costumes and props.                                                                                                      ...

World Book Day

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 we welcomed a host of book characters to school. From Tintin to Mildred Hubble, Gangster Granny to Horrid Henry, it was such a sight to see! Children paraded their costumes, immersed themselves in reading and enjoyed illustrations in books. At playtime children acted out scenes from their favourite stories and had lots of fun and laughs. A big thank-you to grown-ups and carers at home for helping the children get ready for this big...

Y2 Maths Quiz Champions!

A very BIG congratulations to our Year 2 Maths Quiz Champions – The Ryder Stars! It was a tense afternoon as the Ryder Stars, the Alban Mathematicians and the Morpurgo Marauders made their way into the hall.  With the lights down low our teams sat under the spotlight.  The audience held their breath as the teams worked their way through the challenges… question by question they solved problems, debated and experienced both joy and disappointment. The Ryder Stars stole the crown with a massive 12 points and were pleased to hear some very loud cheers from their supporters! We were very proud of all of our teams as they tried something new, took on a challenge, worked together and didn’t give up.  We’re already looking forward to our next year group...
