What an amazing sight to see all the children’s work mounted and framed. They thoroughly enjoyed showing off their work and looking at each others’ pieces.
The children will long remember Activity Week if their fun and excitement is anything to go by. Have a look at the pictures to get a glimpse of some of the activities that took place.
The children were encourage to come to school dressed in odd clothes today and pay £1 for comic relief. There were lots of odd sock, shoes, strange clothes, wig and even some Christmas jumpers. Willow did her bit too and came in wearing her blue jumper, hat and sunglasses. A few days before, two year 5 girls cycled 22 miles including cycling up Roundway Hill without stopping, raising £100. Adding that to the money collected on dressing up day. The school has raised £221.
Over 50 children returned to school with their favourite teddy on Wednesday 15th March dressed in their pyjamas for a couple of stories, some hot chocolate and a biscuit. Special thanks got to Izzy (an ex-pupil now in year 8), Mr Cooper our Chair of Governors and Mr Coleman (husband of Mrs Coleman, our deputy head) who each took a turn with a story. Also huge thanks to Mrs Cooper who made the hot chocolate.
The children will be talking about all that they learnt in activity week for a long time if their excitement and interest is anything to go by. Have a look at the pictures for examples of what they got up to. There is a lovely display of work in the hall too for those of you who weren’t able to get into school to have a look round the classrooms.
A group of children, parents and staff (plus 1 governor) took to the streets and did an hours litter picking on Friday 3rd March as part of the Great British Spring Clean. The younger children went through Dial Close and down Rusty Lane and around The Pavilion, whilst the older children went down along the main road towards Seend Head. By the end of the hour, the children had collected several bags of rubbish and various items too big even for the large bin bags. Quotes from the children include:
“It was good to do something for Seend”, “I was shocked by the amount of rubbish we found!”, “It was very cold and wet, but nice to do something for the village.”
We also received a lovely letter of thanks form the Parish Council – click here for a copy.

There is nothing like seeing KS1 children dressed as angels, kings and sheep to steal the show. Today’s performance was another triumph for the staff and children involved as we saw the nativity story from the view point of a curious sheep. Once again the acting, singing and narration were brilliant and the costumes gave it a really professional feel.
