Christmas Music Performances

Last week we had two fantastic performances provided by our woodwind and strings students. We started with our strings players who treated the school and parents to a series of pieces they have been learning in their lessons. Then our woodwind students treated us to a melody of Christmas and non-Christmas tunes. Well done to everyone who performed and a big thank you to Mrs Waters and Mrs Paterson for putting together both amazing performances! 


On Friday 9th November at 11.00, our KS2 classes went to Thame War Memorial to show our respect for the people who have died in WWI and WW2. Our Year 5 and 6 classes did a great job of supporting our Year 3 and 4 classes, showing them the poppies on the way and being a good role model to the younger children. 

We marked the occasion by listening to war themed poems and Sister Anne-Marie shared the names of all the people who fought in the war from Thame. Father David lead us in prayer as we listened to the 'Last Post' and took our minutes silence. We placed wreaths made out of our prayer poppies, which can now be seen on our school prayer focus. 

We say 'Thank you' to all those who have died for us and fought for our country. 

Thank you to 'Thame Remembers' for helping support us in our learning.

Science Workshop!   Science Workshop!   Science Workshop!   Science Workshop!

On Thursday 28th June the whole school had a visit from Science Boffin Dan.

We had a whole school assembly which featured disappearing paper and fire breathing dragon flames. The children also heard about a poorly elephant with a toothache and were amazed by 3 small quantities of chemical making such a huge amount of toothpaste.

Boffin Dan was extremely enthusiastic and the children were buzzing with excitement after watching the spectacle - the exclamations and cheers could be heard all around the school! Each class were then given chance to take part in a workshop with Dan. In these workshops the children experienced electricity passing through their bodies in order to light fluorescent tubes.

They also learned about polymers and how they are used to make slime- which they all got the chance to make.

What a science-filled fun day!‚Äč
