Sports Days

Excitement was in the air as both Infant and Junior pupils got ready for the first two Sports Days on our new field, competing for either Ascot, Chepstow, Goodwood or Kempton house.

With more classes and more space, some brand new events joined old favourites this year. First up were the Infants, who circulated around ten events including new additions, the space hopper relay and vortex throw. At the half way point, Ascot were leading the way, with just 7 points separating first and fourth. After the second round, Ascot emerged the victors by just 1 point.

Two days later, our older pupils took to the field. After a carousel of events - in which the sun finally came out to play - Goodwood were leading the pack by 3 points. After some exciting mixed-age relays and a long-distance race to end the day, the final results were in: Goodwood were pipped to the post by Chepstow who, by just one point, are the 2018 champions.

As always, a big thank you to all of the parents and other family members who supported the children, and, most importantly, well done to all of our pupils for their effort, determination and sportsmanship.

Take One Picture: Class Activities

Take One Picture is the National Gallery’s countrywide scheme for primary schools which aims to inspire a lifelong love of art and learning by promoting the role of visual arts within education. Our pupils looked at the techniques used to create some famous artworks, taking them as inspiration for their own paintings. Each year group chose a French artist and painting to focus on.


Nursery, Year 2 and Year 5 chose to look at Seurat’s ‘Bathers at Asnieres’. They investigated pointilism and the use of colour in Seurat’s work, but approached it in different ways: Nursery used finger painting to explore the dotty patterns; Year 2 used cotton buds to recreate his style; Year 5 used the end of the paintbrush to gain a similar effect but focused on French landscapes as their subject.


Year 1 and Year 3 chose Renoir’s ‘Umbrellas’ as a starting point. Year 1 looked at the canopy of umbrellas that Renoir had created and, exploring pattern and design, they created some fantastic designs for their own umbrellas.


Year 3 used the figures in the picture to create their own dioramas of the scene. Year 4 also looked at Renoir’s work to produce their fantastic dioramas.


Reception children looked at Monet’s ‘Water Lily Pond’ to explore colour mixing and using the brush to recreate the dappling light and colours of the water lily pond. They added lily pads and flowers with tissue and paper to complete the effect.



Well done to all of our budding artists for creating their very own magnificent masterpieces.
