A Special Visitor

We had a very special visitor in school on Wednesday for the children’s Christmas Party day.

Christmas Service at St Edward’s Church

We do hope you enjoyed our Christmas Celebration this morning. As usual, the children did a fabulous job of spreading Christmas cheer through songs, music, readings and poetry.

Merry Christmas!

RE and Art Week

A HUGE thank you to all the staff and children for their enthusiasm towards our first RE and Art Week at Corfe. We spent the week counting and celebrating our blessings. It was a real joy to see the children working in their houses alongside their siblings and creating some stunning art work. Check out out the photos below.

Sports’ Day 2018

We had a wonderful day celebrating our sporting abilities!

Well done to everyone who took part and tried their best. The was obvious determination and perseverance shown by so many.

A special mention for Blue House who were the overall winners.

Well done, everyone!

Gold School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the GOLD School Games Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme, launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust, to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

A special thanks to Miss Skinner for organising us all!

We look forward to applying once again in 2019!

Forest School Grand Opening

What a fabulous time we had celebrating our Forest School Grand Opening.

Local celebrity, Wolf Christian, grandfather of one of our children, performed the opening ceremony and the lovely ladies from Tesco brought us some nibbles.

Everyone took it in turns to go through the Forest School area and were treated to nettle tea, nettle bread and toasted marshmallows.

We do hope you all enjoyed it!

Sea Life at Wareham library – sounds fishy to me!

We had an interesting, yet wet, visit to Wareham library today. We found out lots of information about the life of a starfish and even looked at some shark eggs. It was a lovely taster before we hope to visit the actual Sea Life Centre later on in the term. We had a bit of time to look at some books too!

Pottering about

Yesterday we finished making our ‘minibeasts’ (2nd attempt after a couple of accidental splats). Completed pictures soon to follow…

Horsing around

We had a lovely visit from Socks last week. All the children enjoyed giving her a good brush and hearing about her escape to have some extra dinner – what a great surprise!
