Celebration Assemblies

Friday 22nd June


Bug Banquet Challenge


Today Key Stage 1 challenged Mr Murphy to follow their instructions to make a healthy bug from salad and cream cheese. The children explained how they had been looking at writing instructions, using imperative verbs , time openers and key vocabulary. Mr Murphy listened carefully, followed the instructions and produced his own healthy caterpillar.

Friday 11th May, 2018

Special thanks to our Foxes and Squirrels who presented  a lovely Celebration Assembly this morning. They told us all about their visit to Little Jack's Farm earlier in the week where they discovered that pigs snore and use mud as sun cream, how to use a flat hand to feed animals and how to plant sunflower seeds. In planting their seeds, they have completed a Cliffedale Challenge and now have the challenge of helping them to grow.

The children finished their presentation with a lovely song about Little Jack's and all the animals they saw which sounded just like Old MacDonald (but better).

Lovely job everyone, thank you.


We also celebrated the achievements of our MERIT earners, some of whom have been making a special effort with homework, some have been managing their distractions to become more resilient and others have been working really hard in their Maths tasks. Congratulations to all!

May the 4th.


Key Stage 1 had the pleasure of presenting the assembly today.

Ethan started the presentation, expertly conducting the school in a friendship song from the work in music this term.

1/2 PB then presented some of their work looking at report writing, sharing the learning and reading examples. 

1/2 LM shared some of their Miini-beast files, explaining how the had researched facts and considered the presentation.

On Friday 23rd March, we celebrated Easter with a special assembly. Each class looked at different Easter traditions from Chocolate Eggs to Easter Bunnies and then shared what they had learnt with the school.

Friday 8th March. Today the Foxes and Squirrels performed the story of The Little Red Hen. They were a perfect team - together, enthusiastic and accurate. The older children said they felt proud of their young friends and impressed by their skills and confidence. We also celebrated another batch of well earned MERITS. Congratulations to all.


Animal Magic.


 26th January.


It was the turn of Years 1 and 2 to share their learning this week. 


The topic for the term is Animal Magic. 1/2 PB shared some work about 'Owl Babies', reading pieces using descriptive language thinking about the sounds the owlets would hear in the wood at night. They then shared a telling of the story they had written, adding detail to the original.


1/2 LM talked about researching information, looking at caring for pets, and shared their information leaflets they had made.


1/2 SF showed some of their work considering what a person would need to survive on a desert island. They also had everybody joining in a quiz thinking about which animals lived in which habitat.


In the assembly we also celebrated those who took part in the Large School Swimming Gala this week and congratulated the large number of children who achieved a merit this week. 






Friday 19th January


Years 3&4 shared their recent learning in Science today. Miss Coley's class showed us their class skeletons and got everyone playing 'Simon Says' naming and pointing to bones in our body. Mr Jones's class shared their Big Writing fact files and gave us all a test on: Herbivores, Carnivores and Omnivores. Then, Mrs Marshall's class shared some of their fantastic homework projects about healthy eating and some 3D models of balanced meals they had made.

After, we heard from Mr Pirie and Miss Broad about the recent Y3&4 badminton event and the children who participated received a certificate. We also celebrated all of this week’s merits, there has been a lot of achievements in Maths this week! Well done everyone. 

In our final assembly of the 2017, we looked fabulous in our Christmas jumpers and we celebrated our achievements with Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates - the Foxes and Squirrels earned their very first certificates. Over 13,000 House Points have been awarded since September and Rushcliffe House won the trophy which was a very proud moment for them. Well done to all four houses for their team effort as they earned over 3000 House Points each, which is really impressive. What a great end to 2017!
