At the Portsmouth in Bloom ceremony last night, Flying Bull received a SILVER GILT award for ‘School Environmental Project’ and a BRONZE award in the ‘School Decorated with Flowers’ category.

Well done to all the children who worked so hard in the environmental area and around the school grounds.

Thank you to Mrs Metcalfe, Mrs Shepherd, Mrs Peters and all the other adults involved in our success.


Learning About Type 1 Diabetes

We were treated to an assembly this morning where an NHS Diabetes nurse, Jenna, taught us about Type 1 Diabetes.

The children asked a range of really thoughtful questions about the condition and some children joined the adults in demonstrating the way the body carries sugar in the blood.

Any questions about Diabetes can be directed to the school nurse or your GP. Alternatively the Diabetes UK website has plenty of useful information: www.diabetes.org.uk

Towering examples from 2C….

Year 2 have been working extremely hard at home this weekend and last week. Just look at the castles that some children in 2C have created! They have shown so many creative ways of making a castle.photo 1 (3) photo 1 (2) photo 2 (2) photo 3 (2) photo 3 (3) photo 2 (1)

A ROOOOAAAARRRRSOME piece of homework

photo 4 (2)What a treat this morning to be greeted by this fabulous piece of homework by Maygen!

This is a real challenge to the rest of Year 4 to see if they can produce a piece of homework that is as imaginative, careful and as beautifully finished as this one.

I am really looking forward to seeing more of your learning logs….

Year 4 Dragons……

At 10:45 this morning, Mr Thomas and Mr Boulstridge called us down to have a look at some excellent collages that the children have been working on.

We had the pleasure of walking around the galleries in both classrooms while the children were appreciating each other’s work. There was a fantastic buzz and a huge amount of pride amongst the children as they were sharing and discussing the work. It was a real pleasure for me, being new to the school, to see such hard work.

Have a look at these excellent examples…..
