On Monday 16th December, the Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles held a spectacular French Christmas Market for the local community and the younger children in school. As you can see, there was a café serving delicious French food and drinks, games of Bingo, Dobble and Pelmanism to help younger children learn French, and a range of beautiful decorations to buy. The hot chocolate reindeer and Santa Sleighs proved very popular, as did the chocolate tombola. In the hall, a variety of games, such as Spin the Wheel, Lucky Dip and raffle went down a treat. The Photomaton (or photo booth) was lots of fun. The adults involved were so impressed with the children’s versatility and independence.
In total, a fantastic amount of £250 was raised. We were delighted to welcome our friends from Kindness & Co into school on Friday to accept our donation.
A huge thank you to all parents, friends and carers for your support and your fabulous French accents!
After a great deal of hard work and resilience, the Snowy Owls have completed the buildings for our French high street. Aren’t they beautiful?

On Wednesday 16th October, children across school took part in activities linked to national Restart A Heart Day. Year 6 were particularly lucky to benefit from the expertise of players and staff from Rotherham Titans Rugby Club. As you can see, the children had plenty of hands-on opportunities to try out CPR on Rescue Annie Mannequins. It was an extremely useful, important morning.
The Snowy Owls had a fantastic, packed day at Crucial Crew in Hellaby on Wednesday 9th October. In the morning, Y6 pupils took part in a First Aid workshop, having a go at putting each other in the recovery position. They also learnt about knife crime and hate crime and had a go at spotting the signs of Child Criminal Exploitation. Additionally, the children took part in a courtroom scenario (with a rather scary trip to a prison cell).
Over the afternoon, the Snowy Owls found out about responsible public transport use and how to stay safe when crossing the road, as well as the consequences of arson and what to do in the event of a house fire.
The pupils threw themselves into each activity with enthusiasm. Their contributions to the discussions and scenarios were superb. Adults from school were very proud of the children’s excellent knowledge and their fabulous performance skills. Throughout the day, pupils were very lucky to work with a wide range of knowledgeable professionals from a variety of backgrounds. In particular, the children enjoyed the role-playing scenarios, such as the court room.
