Christmas Service

We ended the Autumn Term with our Christmas Service at St Faith’s Church on Friday 21st December to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The pupils in Class 3 recited the Christmas story and helped lead the prayers. We listened to the Bible Reading about Jesus’ birth which was read […]

Whoops-A-Daisy Angel

Pupils in Class One took centre stage in our Nativity production of ‘Whoops-A-Daisy Angel’. It was such a delightful re-telling of the Christmas story and our very youngest children performed extremely well to parents, governors and friends of the school. Children in Class 2, 3 and 4 helped […]

Watermill Theatre: Robin Hood

We took the whole school to the Watermill Theatre to see ROBIN HOOD in November. It was a wonderful experience and the children were enthralled by the actors, the scenery and all the different musical instruments that the cast played. We were very grateful to Friends of Shellingford […]

Anti-Bullying Week

The Secret Reader

Our ‘Secret Reader’ event in October was very popular with the children and was once again a great success! Our surprise readers this year included parents and members of our local community who came into school to share their favourite stories and books with the children.

School Open Afternoon

On Friday 12th October we opened our doors and invited parents and family friends to come and view the school as ‘a working school.’ The children were involved in a RE Big Question Day on the topic of ‘What makes a good saint?’ Some in depth discussions and good […]

Sporting Events

We pride ourselves on giving the children competitive opportunities to compete in physical and sporting activities both at school level and inter-school level. September saw our school-based Family Group Kick Ball Rounders Competition. This is a very inclusive form of rounders and all children were involved from Foundation […]
