Remembrance Day

Butterfly class have been creating some lovely artwork as a way to remember all those who have bravely served our country. Have a look at some of the wonderful poppy field pictures.

Corfe Castle Primary School Remembers…

Thank you to everyone who brought in bottles and gave up their time to help us make this incredible poppy display which will be exhibited in Emmanuel Baptist Church in Swanage.

We will be displaying the remaining poppies on our school fence.

The Great Fire of London

We have had such a fantastic time learning all about the Great Fire. Butterfly class have worked so hard and I hope they’ve told you all about our adventures during this topic. We’ve been reporters, authors, fire fighters and even time travellers! Let’s hope our next topic brings as many adventures!

We remember…

The children in Bumblebee and Dragonfly Classes named a cross for each of the fallen in WW1 from Corfe Castle. They planted the crosses at St Edward’s Church lawn before revisiting to pay their respects with MP Richard Drax, school governors, George Preston, Councillor Cherry Brook and Reverend Ian Jackson.

Dragon Hunters!

It’s been an exciting week for Butterfly class. Dragons were spotted in Corfe! The children took it upon themselves to investigate this exciting sighting and became dragon hunters for the afternoon. We followed a trail of dragon footprints which led us to a nest of dragon eggs!

Fire Brigade Visit

We were lucky enough to have Swanage Fire Brigade visit us on Tuesday 25th September. Butterflies had a great time exploring their fire engine and testing out their equipment.

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.

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!
