'The great things we do'
Monday 6th May saw the annual Sinnington fair held on the village green. Although the weather wasn't the best, there was an excellent turnout to support the village, Sinnington Pre-school and Sinnington Primary school. 27 children took part in the traditional Maypole event to open the fair. Overcoming the elements, the children did a wonderful job and were excellent ambassadors of the school. A huge thank you to Mrs Paxton and Miss Rowswell plus all the parent helpers for guiding and supporting the children during Maypole club and on the day.
The local PCSOs came to school today and held two workshops on e-safety. The officers discussed the importance of being safe online and how to do this. Thank you both for two excellent and informative sessions.
Today was Comic Relief where the children came into school dressed in something red and in non-uniform. There were also an assortment of red noses on display. We managed to raise £70 for the worthwhile charity.

World Book Day:
This year, the children and staff decided to focus Wortld Book Day on books. All the children brought their favourite book to share with each other - we had a Big Read in the hall after lunch (children and staff). In the morning, each class were given the same picture and asked to create their own stories. Donaldson created a whole class story, Dahl worked in small groups as did Rowling class. At the end of the school day, each class read their stories to parents for a World Book Day assembly. The children also participated in 'Read in an unusual place'. We had over 5o entries including from from Sinnington Pre-school children. Children sent in pictures of them reading: on a tractor, in the bath with goggles on, up a tree, on the 100thh floor of teh Freedom tower in New York, on a roundabout and in the swimming pool plus many more unusual places.
Quiet Area Competition:
The School Council decided in their last meeting that as a school we needed to develop part of the playground and create a Quiet Area. The council decided that a competition was needed and the best design would be turned into the school's new Quiet Area. A whole school assembly was hosted, where each class wrote down ideas and created a wish list for the new area. From this the children were given two weeks to submit their entries. After the closing date the designs were judged by the School Council and it was decided that there was one winner per class - two in Year 5/6 as the council couldn't decide upon a winner. The winners were;
Donaldson: Caylie Dahl: Gracey Rowling: Frank and Calum, Zoe
The Dog's Trust visited school this week, with Emma holding workshops with each class and then hosting a whole school assembly. The children enjoyed the sessions and found them very informative. they now know how to approach someones dog, ask permission if they want to stroke it and also how to play safely with their dog.
The RNLI came in to visit school this week to promote water safety in preparation for the Summer. Volunteers dressed up in Lifegurad outfits, watched video clips of how to stay safe near water and the number to call if there is an emergency. The children really enjoyed the session.
