This term has seen most children at home doing home learning. You are all doing an amazing job and we are so proud of how far we have come together. We have had snow days this week and it has been amazing to see you all having fun in the snow.

Take care and have a lovely half-term break!

Well it hasn’t been the Christmas we hoped for and so many of us have had to isolate this term. However, we are still managing to smile and have had fun in school when we have been here.

We wish you all a fantastic holiday and hope you can have time with some family whilst keeping safe.

It has been so nice to have the children back in school this term and although things are difficult still, it is lovely to hear the chatter and laughter around the school site.

We have not been able to do very many extra things this term but we have had fun along the way.

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another school year and we have said our ‘goodbyes’ to our wonderful Year 2. We are sorry they couldn’t finish their time with us but we know they will be very happy in their new schools. Good luck year 2, we will miss you!

It has been a very difficult and unusual year for us all but we hope to be back to near normal in September. Happy Holidays!

It has been lovely to welcome back some of our Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children whilst supporting Year 2 and the other children with home learning.

Today we had to say goodbye for a while to most of our lovely children due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are sad but we know we will see you all very soon, when it is safe.

We had a visit from Ofsted on the 11th & 12th February 2020 and we are delighted that the inspector recognised that we are still a good school!

A HUGE thank you to everyone in the school community who supports us every day.

Have a great half term rest!

We had a visit from Michael from  iRock who came in and led assembly for us. Michael played an electric guitar and we sang George Ezra’s ‘Shot Gun’ song together whilst tapping out the beat.

Michael also played the drums and keyboard as well as singing. He was great.

Some of our children then formed a band – Amy on drums, Harry on guitar, Faith on keyboard and Euan on vocals. They performed ‘We Will Rock You’ to the whole school! Just fab-u-lous… we were so proud of them all!

 

On Tuesday 21st January we were lucky enough to have ‘Night Owls’ visit us. They did an assembly and then we could have our photograph taken with an Owl. It was such fun and we learned lots of fun facts about owls as well.

Thank you Mrs Jones for organising this for us. It was so good…

What a great way to end the year! We had breakfast with Santa, Christmas concerts (which were amazing) and Christmas parties (again with a visit from the man in a red suit).

We also made our own Christmas cards for our families which raised £135 for school fund so thank you for supporting this.

Happy new year!

We were honoured to have soldiers from the Royal Engineers in Brompton join us today to join in with our assembly. The children asked very thoughtful questions and a potentially sensitive subject was managed really well. We always take time at this point in the year to remember people who have helped us in the past and those who help to keep our country safe today. Thank you to Mrs Seales for arranging this and to Sergeant Townsend-Smalley and Corporal Peel for giving up their time

We supported Caring Hands, a local charity and being ‘Harvest heroes’! Thanks to the generous contributions from our parent community we were able to send seven boxes of food to be shared out in the local community.

Our Year 1 and 2 children performed beautifully during their Harvest Assembly to parents and grandparents and the EYFS harvest Stay & Play sessions were well supported. We hope you enjoyed your time in school.

THANK YOU!

 

We have had another exciting year here at Crest and wish all of our Year 2 children and their families every happiness for the future. Year 2, you have all been amazing and we will miss each and everyone of you. Good luck in your new schools.

What a fantastic day we had on June 6th 2019 and we couldn’t be prouder of our wonderful children! The whole school turned out to run for Cancer Research, we even had Darcy our school dog in tow – Darcy is a cancer survivor herself. Many children managed to achieve 5k (the maximum available to them) but this didn’t stop a few of our Y2 children who wanted to run again and achieved 10K!!

Great job everyone and the achievement of raising well over £2000 is phenomenal!

Our term 3 whole school theme is about the amazing animals which exist now and have existed in the past.

The Nursery children have been thinking about pets they have at home and at school and also learning about farm and jungle creatures.

The Reception children have been creating their own mythical creatures, using their imagination to think of characteristics and names for them.

Year 1 and 2 have been focusing on dinosaurs with year 2 learning all about Jack Horner, a palaeontologist. Year 1 have enjoyed creating their own fossils.
