Our infant children celebrated Chinese New Year today by doing lots of exciting activities - tasting noodles with chopsticks, making Chinese lanterns, writing Chinese letters and learning traditional dances. They can even speak Mandarin now as well - "Kung Hei Fat Choy" - Happy Chinese New Year!
Well done to the 120 pupils that won a certificate today for having 100% attendance this half term - this is a fantastic achievement!
All these children were then placed into a prize draw with the opportunity to win either a £5 or £50 gift voucher, alongside a separate draw for all this half term's Merit Award winners. After all the excitement in a special achievement assembly, the children below won the vouchers. Congratulations to all!
Reception class parents enjoyed working alongside their children this afternoon whilst we introduced our online reading scheme to them - Bug Club, as well as reading instructions with them to help them decorate cakes.
Reception have been using the City Creator website (click here to play at home) in the ICT Suite to build snowy towns, linked with their topic work on cold lands and to develop their dragging-and-dropping skills using the mouse.

The whole school enjoyed going to Middleton Arena this morning to watch their performance of this year's swashbuckling pantomime adventure today, Peter Pan, with with stunning scenery and lots of special effects, amazing costumes, fantastic music, hilarious jokes with lots of audience participation.
It's the tale all about the boy who refuses to grow up and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell as they visit the nursery of Wendy, John & Michael Darling. With a sprinkling of magical fairy dust watch in amazement as Peter and his new friends fly out the nursery window and over London to Neverland. Will Peter Pan & his gang defeat the evil Captain Hook and rid Neverland of evil?
The whole school took part in the annual Christmas service at All Saints and Martyrs church on Langley this morning in which Year 6 recounted the nativity story and the choir sang a couple of carols. Rev. Wall also wished everyone a peaceful and happy Christmas and reminded us to take a moment to wish our neighbours festive greetings - especially those who are elderly or lonely.

The whole school enjoyed watching a very special dinosaur assembly this morning in which they learnt about the diets of different dinosaur species and how fossils formed from their remains. They also met Jack, the baby allosaurus, and Millie, the tyrannosaurus!
The whole school enjoyed taking part in a poetry day today. Following the reading of a special poem all about the people in Parkfield this morning, staff visited different classes to read their favourite poems and teachers went to other year groups to deliver fun poetry lessons. In the afternoon, the children then wrote their own class poems and shared them in a special showcase assembly covering topics like: dinosaur rhyming, animal alliteration and oxymorons.
