Easter Celebrations

We have had a lovely day in school today. After the Easter service yesterday we had our annual Easter egg or decorate a bonnet competition. There were some amazing entries this year and it was very difficult to choose only a few winners. Mr Chapman our Chair of Governors’ had the difficult task of making the final decision.

The winners were: Nursery = Grace, Reception = Poppy, Year 1 = Daisy, Year 2 = Harrison, Year 3 = Owen, Year 4 = Joe, Year 5 = Lacey, Year 6 = Anthony


Here are some other fantastic efforts:

We also had a very special visit from the Easter rabbit who took all our children on an Easter egg hunt which was great fun and each child found some special chocolate treats.

The raffle was also drawn and there were over 40 children who won the Easter eggs donated by staff and friends of St Wilfrid’s. A grand total of £227.60 was raised for school funds by you all so a big thank you for all your contributions.



Year 3 had a very snowy experience last week (Wednesday 28 February 2018) when we took part in an echo friendly initiative to plant new trees in green spaces. It was a wonderful afternoon and it was very cold however, we were wrapped up well and had a great time and a lot of fun.




Friday 20th April


What a fun and fantastic morning we had this morning !

Thank you to all the parents that attended the beginning of our reading detectives workshop we have the next six weeks to discover who stole the precious scarab beetle. I’m sure that your detective teams will do a great job. Here are some photos from this morning. We are running this project every Friday morning with the final workshop being on the 18th May – so make sure you come along to as many as you can !





Friday 4th May


Yet ANOTHER fun and fantastic morning we have had !


We are half way through our reading detectives workshop. The children and their detective teams are doing a fantastic job looking at evidence and are starting to predict who they think committed the robbery.



We had a great time investigating the evidence we have so far, we found information on the museum’s website and our local PCSO’s came in to collect descriptions of the four suspects and the stolen Scarab Beetle. The children gave lots of help and the descriptions were very informative.


Well done everybody, I know we are going to solve this crime !

We will see you all next time.

Thank you for everybody’s support – Captain Clarke.


As well as solving this crime the teachers were set a little detective task all of their own, as the parents joined forces to hide items around the classroom.

We are pleased to announce the teachers rose to the challenge and were very kindly rewarded with a yummy treat ! Thank you detectives.



Friday 18th May

A little sad today as this was our final session together but we did it….. we solved the crime !


With all your hard work, reading the evidence and finding out who stole the precious scarab beetle the suspect was arrested by the police this morning.

We learnt about Bias in newspaper reports and decided on the guilty persons consequence too – restorative justice, they have to clean the museum from top to bottom !

We had a visit to the police van to see what it looks like inside and try out some of the police equipment too – everybody had a great morning.

We finished the morning with juice and treats followed by an awards ceremony where all detectives were presented with medals and certificates from our fabulous Police Officers and PCSO’s. Thank you to them for coming and spending the morning with us.

WELL DONE EVERYBODY – until next time. Many thanks from Captain Clarke.

Have a look at some of the fun we got up to this morning.



Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea School Lunch – Friday 18 May 2018

The children thoroughly enjoyed their special school lunch today and we even had a sunny day which enabled us to have the picnic tables outside. We all had an afternoon tea prepared by the lovely kitchen ladies and enjoyed waving our union jack flags.



Poetry week assembly – 20/6/18

We have had a fantastic assembly this morning.

Every class from Nursery through to Year 6 have stood up and performed some poetry for us today. We’ve had fantastic rhymes and songs from EYFS,  they have had chicks hatching in Early Years this week and they sang all about the chicks. Year 1 wrote list poems of what they found in the fairy godmothers bag ! Year 2 have been reading and writing poems about holidays and did a calligram poem for us. Year 3 chose poems that made them laugh – they made me chuckle too 🙂 Year 4 have clearly been enjoying the work they have been doing about the industrial revolution and shared three poems with us this morning. Year 5 have been exploring a range of poems and chose some of their favourites and Year 6 wrote a class poem about courage and performed that for us.

What a fantastic morning, everybody has worked so hard and the poems the children have written and performed were AMAZING ! Well done everybody. 



KS1 and KS2 Sports Day (5 and 16 July 2018)

The children had a great afternoon of sport and competition and we were also graced with fabulous weather (for a change). Thank you to all our parents and carers who came along and joined in.


Our Summer Fair on the 5 July

What a fantastic turnout from our families and friends to our Summer Fair. The weather was amazing and we collected over £800 from all the stalls and raffles. Well done  and thank you to everyone who donated items, came along and especially to all who won  prizes.


Year 6 Leavers Service Monday 16 July 2018 at All Saints Church

We had a lovely service performed by Father Wickens on Monday. The whole school went along to support our Year 6 children who will soon be leaving us.  It was very emotional for us all and Year 6 each shared some of their favourite memories of their time here at St Wilfrid’s. A big thank you to all our families who attended and joined us back at school afterwards for tea and biscuits.


Christmas Workshops – photos coming soon

Thank you to all the parents/carers and grandparents who came to the Christmas workshops. Every single child had a great time and enjoyed getting messy and glittery.
