Years 3 and 4 creative poems

Year 3 & 4's Landscape Poems and Artwork - January 2020

We explored and painted different landscapes and then wrote our own poems using expanded noun phrases.

We were delighted to welcome Mrs Joan Green to present a cheque from Police Aid Convoy for £500 to the Dean Hole School Council. This is the third consecutive time that the school has been presented with the cheque due to collecting the most clothing from the clothing bank per pupil. The school regularly supports the charity with donations of surplus classroom equipment. The children enjoy learning about its journey to the classrooms in Africa where it is vitally needed and are proud that they are making a difference.

Hockey Report

On Wednesday 13th  November, our hockey team played in three hockey matches at Magnus School. Our first match was against William Gladstone and we drew 0-0. The second match was against Chuter Ede C, it was a non-league match and we lost 1-0. The final match was against Chuter Ede B and we lost 2-0.
