Something smells good

On Wednesday evening, a lovely smell cake wafting through the school. The children in our cookery club were busy working hard, making their own pasta sauce. They’d even managed to grow lots of the ingredients themselves. Sadly, the blog doesn’t have it’s own ‘smellivision’, so you’ll just have to take our word for how tasty the sauce was and then feast your eyes on the photographs below. Great job cookery club

Summer Fayre

Despite a little bit of drizzle, our whole school community came together on Saturday as we held our Summer Fayre. There was lots to see and do and lots of prizes to win! Thanks to everyone’s wonderful support once again, the day was great success and everyone appeared to have lots of fun- look at the photographs below to see.

3D printer.

After a successful Father’s Day sale, Enterprise Club have been able to purchase a 3D printer. It was  very exciting seeing it work for the first time and we can not wait to really get stuck in with making items to sell.


Fiver Challenge Competition.

You might remember that the Enterprise Club have entered the Virgin Money Fiver Challenge to help fund their business ideas for the Summer Fayre. Well, this week children have designed logos for their businesses and submitted them to Virgin Money for judging.
Below are their final designs. What do you think?

Fiver Challenge!

Enterprise Club has entered the Virgin Fiver Challenge this term. This is a challenge where each person gets 5 pound and has to set up a business. We decided to set up stalls for this year’s summer fayre. To find out what stall to set up, we did a survey, We will have to take part in weekly competitions such as logo designs and advertisements as well as complete a logbook of our work.  We will be competing with schools from all around the nation to make the best profit.

Keep an eye out on the blog or school website for updates.

Tennis Club.


What a lovely morning for a spot of tennis! Children in Year 3 and Year 4 were working hard to improve their hand-eye coordination with a few throwing and catching games this morning. They then went on to scoring points against one another by catching the ball using a sandwich catch – trapping the ball between one hand and a racket. Keep up the good work!

Enterprise Club Survey

Enterprise Club are taking part in the ‘Virgin Fiver Challenge’ this term, where they are given £5 by Virgin and have to try and increase it by as much as they can. They are planning to run a couple of stalls at this year’s Summer Fayre and would like your help to decide which stalls to run.
Would you please help them out by doing this quick survey (no more than 1 minute) saying whether you would pay to have a go at the various stalls suggested.

Dinner times at Sandford Hill

This week the weather has been really kind to us and the children have especially enjoyed the chance to play in the sunshine. The slideshow below, shows some of the outside activities which the children engage with, during their dinner time. We continue to develop our playground areas and now have basket ball posts and playground trails alongside our trim trails, scramble nets, climbing frames and football goals. Cricket continues to be really popular, especially with the girls and boys in Year 5 and Year 6. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, our friends from BeeActive help to organise activities for the children and these are always very popular. Members of staff are also keen to join in. It’s great to see so much fun and activity in the sunshine. Who knows..in a year or two, we may even produce a Test Match cricketer!
