A Special Visitor!

December 18th, 2020

Everyone was very excited when we had a visitor on the final day of term. The children really enjoyed meeting Santa in the school garden and finding out how he is getting on this year. While the pupils were in the garden, Santa’s elves dropped off a sack full of presents back in the classroom. What a fabulous end to the term!

Christmas Dinner

December 16th, 2020

The children really enjoyed tucking in to their Christmas dinner again this year. A huge ‘THANK YOU’ to Clare, our cook, and the fantastic Play Team for all their efforts allowing all the classes could have a delicious lunch and for everything to run smoothly.

Remembrance Day

November 11th, 2020

The whole school came together to mark Remembrance Day once again this year. It began with a thought provoking virtual assembly where we found out about the lives of some of the people from Avening who did not return. Many of the children recognised the streets and places where they lived and worked. Everyone then met at the Millennium Cross in their bubbles to observe the silence and the Owls read out the names of the fallen. The school council then took turns to place a cross for each of the people who died in the churchyard. Everyone was moved by the human stories of the people involved and showed great respect for their memory.

Len Hutton Millennium Football Tournament

March 10th, 2020

Our team really enjoyed taking part at Inside Football. They got to meet some of the players and mascot from FGR. Everyone played really well and aspired to do their best. Well done team!

World Book Day 2020

March 4th, 2020

Everyone enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on the theme of Julia Donaldson stories. The pupils worked in their houses to build in Forest School, sing, learn about kindness, develop their art skills, explore animals and listen to stories while drinking hot chocolate!

Each house completed a set of activities based on the some of Julia Donaldson’s stories including Share a Shell, Stick Man, The Ugly Five and The Smartest Giant in Town.

Jonathan’s Jungle brought in some of their animals inspired by stories and everyone learnt such a lot about the interesting animals. Everyone showed great respect for the animals by behaving so sensibly and quietly and therefore they had the opportunity to hold some. It was a real challenge for some of us!

Everyone had a super day and were inspired to read and explore lots of different books by the same author.

Football Festival

January 13th, 2020

A team from the Owls enjoyed participating in a football festival with other local schools. For some of the team, this was their first experience of representing the school in competitive matches. It was great to see them develop their collaboration and perseverance skills while also thinking about what they needed to do to improve their performance. They also enjoyed competing against other teams and aspiring to do their best. Well done everyone!
