We had a fantastic week kick starting the church's year of mission, celebrating our schools 40th Anniversary and St Francis Day. As part of our celebrations we went on a whole school trip to St Fagans in Wales. We loved exploring all the different buildings through the years. We were particularly interested in how houses changed from 1805 - 1985 and also what schools were like in 1820.

Raise the Roof 

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic time visiting Nailsea school to take part in our annual Raise the Roof concert with other local primary schools. We had a great morning putting actions and instruments to songs we have been learning this term. This year we celebrated school life with the theme 'cool school', we dressed as some of our favourite book characters to match the song 'Books are amazing'. 

Children in Need 

In year 3 we have been working hard to come up with fundraising activities to raise money for a good cause. Year 3 showed brilliant teamwork skills, creating posters and organsing eachother to create a fun afternoon for the whole school with activities ranging from colouring competitions to penalty shoot outs. Thank you to everyone who helped with the event and brought cakes or lucky dip prizes in for the class. 

Merry Christmas! 

We have had a fantastic week getting into the Christmas spirit. Well done to all of year 3 for completing their first Christmas Carol Service, they all did a brilliant job. This week the children have been busy making cards, hats and decorations for gifts this christmas. I hope you all have a lovely rest and have an amazing christmas! See you in the new year!

Tithe in Time 

Year 3 had a wonderful Evacuee experience at the Tithe Barn, linking to our work on the history of Tithe Barn. We got to learn so many things about how the Tithe Barn was used and how it was made. Whilst we were there we were given the identities of real evacuee children who came to Nailsea to live. We got to look at real life WW2 artefacts, look at old maps of Nailsea, experience writing letters home in real ink pens and learnt how to bake rock cakes using rations.  

The History of Nailsea Museum 

Year 3 had a fantastic time showing off all they had learnt to the whole school and their parents. Year 3 put on their very own museum celebrating the History or Nailsea. The exibition ranged from posters and models to even some yummy rock cakes for all of the children. The children have loved finding out all about what has happened in the place they are growing up in. 

Chinese Dancing 

This term we have been lucky enough to do some Chinese dancing with a dance teacher to celebrate Chinese New Year. We were so excited about the new moves which we had learnt, that we showed our friends and family!
