We are officially a 'Good' School
We were delighted to be graded as a 'Good School' at our Ofsted inspection in March 2018.  The report highlighted our 'very warm and inclusive community atmosphere.”  Additionally, the inspector noted that “Pupils have very positive attitudes, engage well with teachers and teaching assistants and work hard. These strong relationships foster a sense of teamwork and trust. ” 

Y6 Responsibility Ties
Our Y6 children were presented with their red ties at assembly on 21st September. They applied for jobs at the beginning of the term and these have now all been successfully allocated. We wish all the children good luck in their roles and thank them for their contribution to the school.

Y6 Kingswood residential trip
Y6 returned safely from their week-long residential trip on Friday 14th September. Although tired, they clearly enjoyed the experience and tried lots of new activities.  Our new Y6s were a real credit to the school, extremely well behaved and applauded by the staff at Kingwood and members of the public. Very well done Y6!

Florence Nightingale visits Binfield!
Y2 children attended an exciting drama workshop recently to find out more about ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ and her life. They got to hear her stories, see artefacts and help act out her life. The children really enjoyed imagining what it would have been like to have been a nurse or soldier in the Crimean war.  They had lots of fun dressing up and bandaging the wounded soldiers!

Celebrating Autumn at Harvest Festival
Harvest Festival is one of our favourite times of year, as it gives us the opportunity to donate food to help others.  Our Harvest services were held at St Mark's Church and in school, and the children raised the roof of both buildings singing 'Cauliflowers fluffy' celebrating Autumn.

 

KS2 Parents Reading Workshop
During our Book Enrichment Week in October, we held a Reading Workshop for all KS2 parents and carers. We explored ways to help children read fluently and emphasised the importance of asking the right questions when hearing children read.  Feedback from the afternoon was very positive and thank you to everyone who took the time to attend the workshop.
