Visit from the Dukeries Library


Earlier this week, Mrs.Davie, from Dukeries library visited Class Sycamore to share books nominated for the 2017 Kate Greenaway Award. The children became ‘judges’ for the day, discussing the illustrations. They looked at the descriptive language used and how it was reflected in the illustrations. Finally, they voted on their favourite book using voting papers. We await the outcome

of the Kate Greenaway award.  

Taking part in 'Thy Kingdom Come.'

In the morning, Jane Lewis from the diocese joined us for collective worship.

In the afternoon, children  created a wall of prayer ribbons. Holding their ribbon, the children prayed for their community and for the world. before they tied their ribbons onto the fencing at the entrance to school.
We held a 'prayerplane party' - everyone  made a paper plane on  red, yellow or orange paper representing the colours of Pentecost. They wrote or drew a prayer for someone they knew onto it and all the school met to launch them simultaneously.

Winners of our Pudsey Superhero Competition 2015

Last week, children from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to the theatre to watch 'The Snow Queen' ballet. Here's what they had to say:

'I was into it from the moment it started. The dancers were amazing.'

                                                                                                                                                                                        Warren M. Year 5.


I liked the costumes and the mysterious music. I had ballet lessons in Turkey but I'm not as good as them.'                                                                                                                     Oliver E. Year 4.


What a great experience! How do they manage to stand on the tip of their toes?

                                                                Annabell H. Year 5.


'The costumes were fantastic and like nothing I've seen before.'

                                                                                                                                                                                                 Harry M. Year 5.


'Humans wore costumes that made them look just like animals. I thought that was amazing!'                                                                                                                                                                    Millie D. Year 4.



'I loved the colourful tutus because they were so sparkly.'

                                                                          Elizabeth B. Year 5.





Nottingham Wildlife Trust bring gifts to Walesby

Following Mrs. Taylor entering a competition, two members of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust surprised the whole school during assembly when they presented us with a host of amazing prizes- an incredible bird box with a webcam inside, 3 large bird feeders, complete with bird food and garden bird charts to help us identify our visitors!

 All gifts are very welcome additions to improving our school grounds and wildlife area.

The children are awaiting Spring, when we will be able to observe the activity within the bird box on our very own monitor.




Year 4 and Year 5 meet Mr Boswell and his amazing Vardo.
