Our School Vision
Children only have one childhood.
Being part of a community of children is unique within life's experience.
In this school we value every child and strive to enrich the whole person.
We believe that learning should be vivid and real: a joy in itself.
We nurture adaptable and flexible learners who are passionate about learning and have the skills to confidently embrace every challenge and opportunity.

Design a Book Cover Competition
Book Week: 2nd to 6th March 2015
As part of our book week activities, we are running a competition for the children to design a book cover. We would like them to do these on A4 paper. It can be in any media of their choice e.g. drawing/painting/collage etc .
They can design a new cover for an existing book e.g. Elmer or they can design one for a book of their own.
The author/illustrator that is visiting our school during book week, has agreed to judge the competition. We will be giving prizes to the winner and runner up in Foundation and Key Stage 1 and the winner and runner up in Key Stage 2. The winning book covers will also be framed and displayed in our school library.
Please send your child's entry to Mrs Snooke by Wednesday 4th March at the latest and write your child's name and class on the back.
Good luck with your entries and we are looking forward to seeing the results.

Book Week 2nd to 6th March 2015
We will be holding our annual book week between Monday 2nd and Friday 6th March. This is an event intended to promote children's reading for enjoyment and love of books.
This coincides with World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. We thought it would really help to embrace the spirit of the day if children (and staff!) dressed us as their favourite book characters. We would be grateful for a £1 donation for this, which will go towards raising funds for a very worthwhile cause - Book Aid International, which provides books for children in Africa.

Friday 6th March
Our next Bag2School Collection is this Friday 6th March. Bags were sent home with the children last week so you should hopefully all have one. If you do need a bag, or any extras, they will be available from the school office.
We are aware it's not easy to bring bags up to school on the morning of the collection. We have therefore agreed that bags can be dropped off in the central area as there is an after-school club taking place in the hall from pick up time 3.15pm until 7.00pm on the evening of Thursday 5th March.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your support with these collections. As you are probably aware, how much we raise depends on how much we collect. So if you, family or friends are able to fill a bag it all helps!
PTA Race and Supper Night
Saturday 7th March
If you've ever fancied a night at the races then this is for you!!
On Saturday 7th March the school PTA will be holding a 'Race and Supper Night' for you to enjoy. The night will be run by a professional host who will show 7 screened horse races on which you can bet and, hopefully, take home some winnings.
After a few races we will have a break to enjoy some delicious fish and chips which will be delivered by Barry's Plaice in Fenstanton. There will also be a fully licensed bar for you to purchase drinks.
