We are setting our children, staff and families a challenge in recognition of Lent.
Lent is the 40 day period before Easter, starting on Ash Wednesday (the day after Shrove Tuesday – last week).
We are launching ‘26 days’ this Thursday during our ‘Reflect’. It is a kindness and generosity challenge. During the 26 school days remaining in the term, we will try and complete an act of kindness each day.
Small acts of kindness have the power to make a big change to our school and community. The idea is simple; during the period of Lent, as a whole school, we’ll give something back, not give something up.
Each class has a set of Challenge Cards. Each school day, beginning on Thursday, every class picks a Challenge Card at random and this becomes their challenge for that day. Each task is a small act of generosity or kindness. You can join in at home with the wall chart below.
There were some strange goings on in Worship Time this morning.
Mr Waldron was taken unwell and couldn't lead our Worship Time so the children decided to help out by creating a 'Marvellous Medicine'.
When Mr Waldron drank the medicine (which included some horrid ingredients!) he started to behave very strangely - like a very naughty young child! He sat with the children, ran round the hall, joined in 'Great Big God', then had to leave to go to the toilet!
Following a couple of very close early league matches - one loss and one draw - our team recorded their first victory with a 5-0 win against St Mary's School.
Well done team!
As with all our web pages, if you or your child features in a photo and you prefer it not to be on our site, please email email@example.com and we will remove it without question.
The newest addition to our sporting teams lineup is our netball team. Under the guidance of Miss Mannion, they have trained during the Autumn Term and are now starting to play against other schools in the league.
In their first game, against Bedgrove School, they played really well and the match finished as a 3-3 draw.
Well done to the entire team!

We are delighted that our recently formed girls' football team played their first ever match against Thomas Hickman School today.
In a closely fought tie, with end-to-end action, Thomas Hickman School won the closely fought game 2-0. There were plenty of opportunities for both teams during the game, played in very wet conditions.
There were good performances from Buckingham Park players, most of whom were playing in their first ever football match. Well done to the entire team!
