Maths Workshop for parents of Years 1 - 6

On Wednesday 27th November a Maths workshop was held for parents.  The workshop was a way to show parents how we teach Maths across the school.  Parents were given an opportunity to watch a lesson in progress in the classroom and many found themselves doing some of the work along with their children too!  We have had a great response from parents and welcome any feedback.  A feedback form can be found in your Parentmail account under 'Forms'.  We look forward to hearing from you.

An enormous thank you to everyone who helped raise money for the BBC Children in Need. Your generosity is amazing! £205 raised so far for Children in Need. (Bake sale to be held)


The children came to school in such colourful clothes ready to do their bit for charity. Our money bucket quickly filled up and we will announce the total raised in the week to follow. 


Competition was tough this year for the Staff Bake Off and our fabulous Walk to School Volunteers had a difficult time choosing the winners. Congratulations to Mrs Moule with a tasty chocolate butterfly cake, Second place to Mrs Townsend with rhubarb and custard and third place to Mrs Robson. 


At the time of writing, a cake sale has been organised in the school playground during dismissal time. We hope you will get the opportunity try some of the delicious treats in aid of the fundraising. Please remember to bring along a container as we do not provide plastic bags!


Again, thank you to everyone who made this day special for the pupils and children everywhere, no matter what their circumstances are. Dorney has once again shown that we are a caring community.
