We have lots of fun every Wednesday.
This term we have made hedgehogs from books, Xmas cards using glitter art and stencilling with masking tape. We have stitched curves with straight lines and decoupaged balls. We are looking forward to more crafty activities this December and next term.
We need your help !!!
Calling all parents/carers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends/family.
Orchard Primary School is hosting a Careers Aspiration Day on Thursday 15th December 2016
Last year this was a great success and we had lots of people come in to talk to the children about their job/career.
The aim of these days is to highlight the variety of jobs that the children may aspire to and to show them a range of careers they could choose in the future and what skills each career requires.
We are hoping that this year the day will be just as successful and we have already arranged for some local businesses and professionals to come into school but we are still looking for more.
It was great to see so many parents/carers and their family and friends come into school last year and we would love to see them again this year.
If you (or someone you know) could spare us an hour or more and would like to be involved please complete the form below and return to school as soon as possible.
You will be asked to speak to the children about your job/career.
You may wish to talk about: related school subjects, education/training, personal skills, a typical day, you may also want to consider: child friendly games and presentations, hands on activities or visuals
Please complete the following form and return it to Miss Little by Friday 11th November.
Provide contact information so we can send you confirmation regarding the schedule for your presentation and work with the children.
Please feel free to contact Miss Little on 0208 300 4878 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Orchard pupils have been invited by Cool Milk, suppliers of our pupil's milk cartons, to take part in their Christmas competition. The winner will recieve a £50 Amazon gift card and copies of their Christmas card design to send to friends and family. Take a look at the link but be quick as it closes on 18th November.
Wednesday 9th November, Year 5 & 6 pupils began their three day excursion to France. They were staying at the Chateau du Broutel in Somme situated on the edge of the small historical town of Rue. The facility offers on site adventure from crate stacking, abseil tower, archery, blind trail and other courses.
All pupils had a wonderful time building strong friendships and working as part of a team. They also enjoyed sampling the French cuisine, snails and frog's legs. Not too sure how this went down?
