Our value this term is Creativity.


"And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

World Book Day 2022

A wonderful week was had by all. Firstly we were gifted a £75 voucher from the lovely Kim from the Madhatter Bookshop in Burford. We look forward to visiting with some children next week to purchase some wonderful books for our school library. The whole school came together for an assembly featuring riddles, rap songs and books. The children enjoyed numerous activities such as sharing a story with hot chocolate, scavenger hunts, dressing up as their favourite book characters, quizzes, comic writing, finding Wally, readathons and a daily Mystery Reader. World Book Day featured Mr Smith with a telehandler at the Jubilee field, he showed us what this piece of machinary can do and also raised our Headteachers to the sky. We all enjoyed storytime around the telehandler and the children had many questions to ask, including how much a telehandler may cost!
