Well the BLUE team did it again!
When Mrs Landon arrived back from wherever she had disappeared off to,she was amazed to see everyone working so hard on their creative activities. There was a calm industrious feeling in all the classrooms with children (and adults) all making glittery stars, pine cones and bows so that Aderin-Pocock’s hoops look like a ‘Winter Wonderland’.
Please enjoy them when you come into school to join in our Sing-a-long at the end of term.
The children also learnt how to sign the song too. All in one short morning – how amazing are they?? And the wonderful Mr Moloney was too; singing, dancing and signing all the way through.Mr Burt and Mrs Archer did a fantastic job of tidying up afterwards – ably helped by Alisha and Ruby… you wouldn’t have known anything had been going on…well almost (our classrooms might still be glittery in May!!). A huge thank you should go out to Mrs Shephard and Mrs White who were last seen putting the hoops together..patience of a saint comes to mind!
Not only did the team produce some fantastic artwork and learn how to sign a new song, they also had to contend with a fire practice! They all left the building in a quiet sensible fashion with little noise. This was quite an experience as most people were not where they would normally be but were still able to line up outside quickly and quietly. Well done all.
A big thanks and a pat on the back to all those in Aderin-Pocock – yet another very successful team morning.
We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas – have a great time over the holidays…not long left!

On Friday, two lucky children from LRP, had the chance to cook some amazing cup-cakes with the help of Mrs Smith and Mrs Righini-Nisbett.
They were given this opportunity as they had earned all their buttons for good behaviour all week.
Well done both of you!!!

On Friday afternoon all of our new House Teams: Hawking (red), Turing (yellow), Attenborough (green) and Aderin-Pocock (blue) got together in and had some great fun.
Let’s start this with Hawking team. This activity looked amazing – they made a film canister rocket to represent Stephen Hawking! To make this they needed: water, pink lemonade and vitamin tablets. Most of them were successful. Other groups in this team also made nebula jars. A nebula is a space cloud/mist, which children made in cups/jars. In angelfish they were drawing supernovas – they all looked amazing!
