Easter Gardens 2017


Easter GardensMrs Challis, Head of RE, writes: Well done to all the Year 5 pupils for their amazing Easter gardens; they have made a beautiful and thought-provoking display! Congratulations to the overall winners: Isabella B (5H), Ella H (5CD) and Sienna H (5L). The runners-up were: Oliver C, Luke F, Maddie L and Thomas McW (5CD); Charlotte F-S, Freddie S, Sammy L, Max C and Grace K (5H); Izzie M, Kieran B, Alex A and George W (5L). All the winners were awarded a certificate and a plant to grow at home. This was also a House competition: each entry gained 2 House points for their House; a runner-up was awarded 4 points; and a winner 5 points. We had 2 overall winners from St David’s, and runners-up from each House - it was still very close though! The winning House was St David’s, with 42 points; St George’s 2nd with 41 points; and St Andrew’s and St Patricks joint 3rd with 40 points each.

Le tour de Normandie


France aLe tour de Normandie pour les Année 6 s’est bien passé. Par deux fois la Manche était très calme et nous avons mangé du poisson frites ou poulet frites avec le ciel bleu et le soleil qui brillait. Pendant la semaine, nous sommes allés au Mont St Michel et avons fait du shopping à St Malo après la visite des ramparts. La meilleure excursion était quand nous avons visité la chèvrerie de la Saffrie et avons caressé les jeunes chèvres. Tous le monde a eu un fromage de chèvre en souvenir; miam-miam! Et toujours les enfants ont essayé de parler français. Merci à Mme St Laurent, la chef du voyage, qui a organisé ce beau séjour!

Outdoor Phonics for Class RB

P3201374 resize for Web1Tuesday was a bright and sunny morning, so the children in Class RB decided to do their phonics activity outside. The children wrapped up in their coats - it may have been bright but it certainly wasn't warm - and headed to the Hedged Garden where each group had different coloured letters and digraphs to hunt for. After enjoying the search, the children were then challenged to make as many words as they could. The children love taking their learning outside and experiencing the beautiful natural environment we are able to enjoy at The Croft.
