On Friday, children (and staff!) across the school dressed up in animal-inspired fancy dress to support Wear It Wild Day and help raise money to protect endangered wildlife around the world. Here are the members of Amethyst class who chose to dress up. Be sure to check out the other class blogs to see what … Continue reading Wear It Wild!
Today, there is so much going on we just had to share it. Our children, across school are involved in so much today.
Our resident French teacher, Monsieur Barthelemy teaches all our KS2 pupils weekly. They are making excellent progress and today our Y5s were explaining what the weather was like in France.
Our pupils in our school learn to play the violin. The whole of Year 5 have just started to learn how to play and follow simple musical notation and some of our pupils have elected to study the violin for a second year and take part in a select group. Heather Cordwell is our resident music teacher.
Andy Messer (professional story teller and writer) spends a day in our school each week. He’ll be part of our school for the full year! We are so lucky to have our literacy sessions enriched with his skills and enthusiasm…

This year our pupils in all year groups have had the chance to work with two wonderful artists from “Artboat”: Soo and Charlie. There is some amazing artwork around school and the latest masterpieces to go up are the Harry Potter sculptures created by the Y5s and the Solar System created by the Y2s. Our school hall looks amazing. We are really going to miss Soo and Charlie, but we know, in a few years, we will invite them back for more stunning art sessions.
We had an amazing time when musicians and singers from Sheffield Music Hub came in and performed for us. They told a story using words, songs and music. The story was ‘Where the Wild Things are”.
At times we had to join in with noises, playing instruments and singing. Some of us held up props.
Ellie: It was really funny when they told us what the translations were.
Cody W: I enjoyed it and it was really fun. I liked the howling.
Saron: Their voices went really high and it sounded incredible.
Sports Day was last Friday, and what a great day we had. Thankfully, the weather co-operated! Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were split into four teams (red, yellow, green and blue), and there were track events and field events. Year 5s ended up competing with Year 6s. The tug-of-war was certainly a nail-biter! Look … Continue reading Sports Day!
Thank you, Pearl class, for writing this post. Mrs Lohoar did not get the chance to photograph our class for this, but we had lots of green in Amethyst, too!
Today, we were invited to wear the colour green to support the people suffering or were involved in the Grenfell fire in London. By wearing green, we show solidarity and support for the people who died, were injured or lost everything in this tragic event.
A huge thank you to all of our parents and carers for sending donations in for this cause. We have raised over £200. This money will go towards helping those that have been affected in London.
