The Lockdown Low-down!
To keep our spirits up during this difficult time, we have been asking parents and members of staff to send in photos and videos of what they have been doing during the temporary school closures. We have had such a brilliant response so far and we hope that you enjoy seeing what everyone has been getting up to!

Sky Academy Studios Competition
During Lockdown, Year Six pupils were set the task of creating a short video to enter a competition run by Sky Academy Studios. The children were lucky enough to visit the Sky Studios in London earlier this year, and five children jumped at the chance to enter, putting their new-found skills into practice! Eli Neeson, Freya Smart, Lily-Grace Craigs, Harvey Donovan and Oscar Witham created excellent entries, uploaded them to Miss Baldwin and Mr Granger and then eagerly awaited the results. With over 500 entrants, the competition was stiff! We are extremely pleased and proud to say that Harvey Donovan’s news report has made it into the top 20 videos… and we are awaiting news for where it has placed!
Here is Harvey's video:

Be Internet Legends
During the current COVID-19 lockdown, children are using the internet more than ever. What with learning, socialising and play, they’re hardly off it.
Parent Zone have offered some advice for parents on how to talk to their children about the subject in a way that doesn't make them switch off. Click HERE.
They have also put together a ‘Legendary Learner Well-being Kit’:
Foundation Stage & Year 2 Lockdown Videos:
Mrs Hamer, one of our parents, has worked really hard to create a music video of the Year 2 children dancing and miming to the song 'Times Like These' and a music video of the Reception children dancing to 'We're all in this together'. Even some of the staff have included their dancing moves in the videos!
It is so lovely to see the children involved and we hope that you will all enjoy watching them as well! A massive thank you to everyone who took part in these videos but an even bigger thank you to Mrs Hamer for all the time and effort you have put in to create something so wonderful and special during this time.
Here is the music video that Miss Lucas put together of pupils and staff dancing to 'One way or another'!
Here is a music video that some of the cleaners/teaching assistants made to cheer everyone up!
