Sixties Extravaganza

Parents and carers of children in Year 2 are warmly welcomed to come into school a little earlier on Friday, so that we can show off our Sixties singing and dance moves. Our performance will begin at 2:30p.m.; if you would like to come, please arrive at the office after 2:20. We look forward to seeing you there!

Christmas display competition

This past week the students and staff of Flying Bull have been competing to make the best display for their year group.  They were given one instruction: design something relating to Christmas.

After careful deliberation by Mr Hewett-Dale, Mrs Cantini and Mr Dallinger, the winner was announced as Year 4!  Their display was full of fun, interactive buttons that really made the display come alive!  Well done Year 4!

In second place with a beautifully designed advent calendar was Year 1!  The children wrote their lovely Christmas wishes on paper baubles hanging from their tree, and designed each door to reveal a picture of a different pupil.  There was even a special appearance by Mr Hewett-Dale as train conductor!  Well done Year 1!

All of the displays were fantastic, but unfortunately there can only be one winner.  Congratulations to all involved, you did a fantastic job!  Below are the displays that didn’t quite make it this year.

Year 4 Archery

Today Year 4 were given the opportunity to have a go at archery!  They were kindly assisted by Sonny and Tori, who taught them how to use a bow and arrow to shoot at targets.  They all took turns to shoot arrows at these targets, and those who managed to hit a balloon won a prize!  Below are some pictures from the day.
