Roots to food

We welcomed the return of Roots to Food in May. Each class was involved in a hands-on practical cooking session which focused on what makes a healthy and nutritious meal, how to prepare different foods and the principles of food safety and good hygiene.  This year’s dish was a Greek  Keftedes, and Tzatziki salad.

Seven Class 4 pupils participated in a Netball Festival at Faringdon Community College. During the festival the pupils had the opportunity to play High-5 netball matches against other local primary schools, as well as doing a variety of netball skills-based activities. Every pupil demonstrated our PE ‘HEART’ values brilliantly (Honesty, Effort, Aspiring to do their best), and especially their Teamwork and Respect for the other schools, the organisers and the referees.


Class 3 – Residential to Hill End

‘Class 3 went on a really exciting trip to Hill End Outdoor Education Centre. We did lots of activities with a leader called Charlie. The pond dipping was incredible. We had a BBQ in the evening which was amazingly delicious, and we then had S’Mores around the campfire which were phenomenal. The sleepover was really, really fun.’          Written by Bea and Alex

EYFS Time Capsule!

We had some flooring work carried out in Class 1.  Just before Easter the contractors found the time-capsule which we buried when the classroom was built in 2011!  On the last day of term Mrs Setchell opened the capsule in front of the whole school to discover messages and pictures from pupils and staff.  To our delight there was a poem written by Miss Marlow (Teaching Assistant) who used to be a pupil at the school.  Miss Marlow read her poem to the school and we showed everyone a photograph of her when she was a pupil in Class 2!  We have now buried the time-capsule once again and added to it recent pictures and news about the school.

School Council

The Year 5 & 6 representatives from our School Council attended a meeting with the Faringdon Learning Trust schools. The topic of the meeting were the Six Pillars of Learning (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship) how they were used in each school. The children represented our school well and were a real credit to Shellingford.

Shakespeare Workshop

As part of our Shakespeare Week celebrations this week, Classes 3 and 4 had the privilege of working with the company, 'Finding the Will'.  During their workshop, pupils used a variety of visualisation and drama techniques to act out key scenes from the play Macbeth.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained an understanding of the plot, as well as having the opportunity to explore character at a very practical and relatable level.  What a wonderful experience for all involved!
