A Victorian School Day

As part of their History topic work, Y4/5 children pretended to go back in time to the Victorian era and experienced a Victorian school day with a very strict teacher!

The children had to follow the strict Victorian rules and if any were broken, then punishments were given!

Mrs McFarlane led them through typical Victorian lessons such as prayers, reciting poems and multiplication tables, listening to Bible scriptures, handwriting in their copybooks, completing drill exercises, and spelling and vocal exercises, and at Recreation time, they played with hoops, skipping ropes and hopscotch.

In the afternoon, the boys and girls were separated, when the girls did needlework and the boys, technical drawing.

The day ended with a rendition of ‘All things bright and beautiful’ and a prayer.

Mrs McFarlane would like to thank all parents for the wonderful outfits that the children wore – they really did look the part – and say well done to all the children for really entering into the spirit of the day, even if it did mean they had to wear the dunce’s cap!

Remembrance Day

As part of the Remembrance Day service at the memorial in the Village we sang the song 'Remember'. Here is a video of us practising.

Harvest Festival 2020

As we were unable to hold our usual Harvest Festival in church this year we performed our songs in our classes and shared the videos with each other across the school - please take a look at our class performances below: -

Year 5 Leaver Picnic

It wasn't our usual Leavers Treat this year for our Year 5 pupils, but we are so glad that the weather held, and we were able to meet for a Picnic and to present them with some gifts.

It has been a pleasure to teach them, and to see how they grew during their time with us. We know that they will continue to flourish as they move on to the next chapter of their school life and we wish them all the best.

I have a Dream....

For Home learning during lockdown Y4/5 were set the challenge of writing their own 'I have a dream speech' to make the world a better place. We decided to have a go in school too! Please enjoy watching our videos. 

Young Voices 2020

Year 4/5 had an absolutely brilliant time at Young Voices. They danced and sang their hearts out! They’re already counting down the days until the next one in 2021!

Will Mrs McFarlane manage another 20 years of Young Voices?!
