Life at the School

The school holds a number of events during the academic year that form a valuable part of school life.  Recent highlights include:

Zip Theatre - an excellent way to kick start Christmas when a traditional pantomime comes to us!

Speech Cup - the children get an opportunity to practise their oracy skills by preparing and performing a recital in front of a panel of judges and an audience.

Community Tea - each class takes it in turn to host a Community Tea during the year. The children serve refreshments, wait on tables and share their work with their invited guests.

School Cafe - the PTA hold cafes at certain times of the year to raise funds for the school.

Visitors to the School

Fire Service - the fire service are based just around the corner from the school. We welcomed them into school for a 'Fireworks Awareness Assembly' and all the children got a chance to ask questions and go in the fire engine.  Great fun was had by all - children and adults!

Local Churches - the local churches help with one assembly a week and the local Baptist Minister leads our singing assemblies once a week.

Jester - A jester visited school to teach the children some circus tricks and entertain us during our Tudor Feast - which was also attended by no other than King Henry VIII!

Driving Beats - the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust are regular visitors to the school. In the Autumn term we had the pleasure of welcoming their Driving Beats group who worked with the children.

Swimming - this year we have used some of our sports funding money to send more children swimming at Daventry Leisure Centre.

Cycle Training - the children in Year 6 have the opportunity to take part in the Bikeability scheme to ensure they are safe to ride their bicycles around the village.

Sports Day - we hold our Sports Day every June with the year 2 children from the Infant School also taking part.

Race for Life - this year we organised and held a Race for Life at the school.  We were all a vision in pink.

Trips

Trips are organised to enrich the learning experineces of the children.  Recent ones include an evacuation experience at Holdenby House, a Tudor Day at Sulgrave Manor, an encounter with rainforest animals at Twycross Zoo and the Year 6 Residential to Condover Hall.  Next year the Year 6s are going to spend a week on the Isle of Wight.

Music

Please use the link on the left to discover more about the music tuition available at the school.  We also benefit from having a teacher from the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust every Tuesday teaching all classes in the school.  Our class set of Ukuleles and recorders means that all the children get to learn to play a musical instrument.
