In to the third and final term of the academic year, only 13 weeks or 64 days till the long summer holidays (not that we’re counting!).

Class One’s topic this term is all about Minibeasts, Class Two will be finding out all about the Great Fire of London and the children in Class 3 and 4 are finishing off learning about what the Romans did for us before moving on to The Sea and Coastline. As part of the topic the classes will be spending a few days in South Wales near Manorbier. Staying at the youth hostel, they will be studying the cliffs, caves, beaches and other coastal features. A highlight of the trip will no doubt be a chance to spend an afternoon surfing with the help of instructors at the nearby surf school.

With access to the site a little clearer this year, we’re once again taking part in The Big Pedal, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for all or part of their journey to school. On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. It’s a great way to get more of our pupils travelling to school on their bikes and scooters. We are competing to become one of the UK’s top schools for two-wheeled journeys and will be in with a chance to win prizes.

We’re hoping that children and parents will be able to ride part or whole of their journey to and from school. Some lunchtimes during the event there will be a small course on the playground so children can ride their scooters and bikes to practice their riding skills. It’s running from Monday 23rd April to Friday 4th May please take extra care if you’re driving near the school during that time.

The annual Easter Egg Hunt in the grounds and walled garden of Delbury Hall was a damp but exciting affair; Easter Eggs for all.  Thank you to Mr and Mrs Rallings at the walled garden and Mr and Mrs Wrigley of Delbury Hall. The Tombola raised in access of £100 for SOCS funds.

St Peter’s church, Stanton Lay hosted the Easter service. The children told the Easter story through poetry, readings and they sang four fabulous songs, which were performed beautifully.
