We were very lucky to be visited by the author and comedian Olaf Falafal. He has written books such as 'Old Macdonald Heard a Parp' and 'Father Christmas Heard a Parp'. As you can guess, our children loved hearing these stories! 

His new book 'It's One Leek for Mankind' has been released in time for the 50th anniversary of the moon landings. In recognition of this Olaf Falafal decided to visit 50 schools and share his stories and jokes.

He wowed the children with his drawing skills and his ability to tell stories. It was then time for the children to become the master! He then showed us how to create our very own illustrations for when we become famous authors like him! 

There were many children (and adults!) who were inspired to master their drawing and story writing skills. 

We were lucky to be visited by a cricket coach from All Stars run by Northants Cricket.

Their aim is to provide as many children with the opportunity to become a cricket star. 

Children in KS1 took part in different activities to develop skills needed during the game. 

Some teachers even had a go at hitting the ball- some more successfully than others!

All children did amazingly well and the coach said we definitely have some potential cricket stars! 

Thank you for your kind donations! 

We raised a fabulous total of £209.10 for Comic Relief!

The whole school celebrated World Book Day by dressing up in their pyjamas and having breakfast with their classes and teachers. 

Each class voted for a book they wanted to read and explore during World Book Day. 

Nursery 1 had a 'splishy splashy' day reading the Big Red Bath.

Nursery 2 read Talula's Atishoo and were sneazing all day! 

Reception were visted by a dragon from There Is No Dragon In This Story. 

1CH had high hopes for Grandad's Secret Giant. 

1LS had an outer space visitor Beegu and they decided he could stay!

1ER found out about the shenanigans of Burglar Bill. 

2HC began to read My Brother Is A Superhero and had dreams of saving the universe!

2TP joined Billy on her mission to defeat the beast in Billy And The Beast. 

2AD ventured to Antarctica and met Geronimo the Penguin who wished he could fly! 

World Book Day was also the launch of our huge reading challenge. We are taking part in the worldwide challenge set by Achievement for All to achieve 200 million minutes of reading! We will be encouraging children to read as much as they can throughout the school day and while they are at home. We will then add all of these minutes together and share them with schools and organisations across the world! 

Make sure you log in your child's reading record if they read at home to help us achieve 200 million minutes of reading!  

 

What an amazing day we have had!Alice in Wonderland

First of all the sun is shining and it feels like April but it's only February! 

The whole school ate their lunches outside and had a picnic on the playground. 

In the afternoon we were very lucky to have M & M Theatrical Productions take over our hall and perform Alice in Wonderland. 

The Year 2's then went back stage and the cast revealed the secrets of how the show worked!

Some children even had the chance to act out scenes and use the light and music box. 

 Today we have had lots of visitors sharing a book with their children across the whole school!

It was fantastic to see so many of you this morning and hopefully we will see lots more this afternoon! 

Reading is very important for all children both at home and at school.

Children can receive rewards at school for reading at least 3 times at home- remember to record it in their reading records.

Reception and KS1 children get the opportunity to take home a library book every week that they can read independently or share with an adult at home.

Our children really enjoy diving into a good book and you know this because of their amazing imaginations! 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Ruskin Infant School visited the Castle theatre and watched Cinderella.panto 18

Adults and children alike enjoyed the performance, particularly the ugly step sisters!

Our very own Miss Young received a marriage proposal from Buttons- she politely declined the offer- having just turned 18!

Three of our amazing children got the opportunity to dance on stage with Buttons. They made us all very proud and even received Christmas presents from the cast. 

Of course, all children were well behaved and showed how fantastic our school is! 

Our Site Supervisor has been busy building a cabin for Forest School. 

We are very excited to announce that it is nearing completion and will hopefully be up and running by January! 

We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Thorne and Mr Thongmata for volunteering to spend their free time helping us to make our vision come true. 

Thank you to all of the parents who have helped to keep children safe by not allowing them to climb near the building area. 

We are buzzing with excitement! Our Site Supervisor is now going to have a relaxing weekend and sleep!

The children enjoyed a beautiful Christmas lunch with Christmas music.

Children entered a competition to name the Dolce elf. Tyler guessed correctly! Sweetie the Elf. Well done! 

Some of our favourites were cabbage and cookie.
