Up Up and Away

The children were truly amazed by the inflation of a hot air balloon on the village playing field on Wednesday. Thank you to Mrs Vowell for organising such an inspiring spectacle as part of this terms ‘Up, Up and Away’ topic.

Blood bikes is the informal name for the emergency medical service, who provide voluntary motorcycle courier services to hospitals and other healthcare providers, to transport urgent blood, tissue and organs. Children enjoyed a visit from Matthew Gilliard, who volunteers for Blood bikes. A highlight for the children was when they climbed on the bike itself and turned on the emergency blue lights!

Flintstones Class and Topcats Class excelled themselves on Wednesday during their Nativity Performance, 'Let's all be everything', by literally all being everything! All 51 children were Mary, shepherds, donkeys, angels, and Kings! They all sang their hearts out brilliantly and memorably. Well done to all involved! 
Thank you so much to the NSP PTFA who provided mulled wine and mince pies. The Zone has never smelled so Christmassy!

A CHRISTMAS STORY, by Dan Lashbrook

Glittering stars, angelic angels, dancing sheep, handsome shepherds, busy townsfolk, fabulous wise men, more angelic angels, cunning Herod & scary soldiers, a tired donkey, rather fast camels, a very grumpy innkeeper, a graceful Mary and caring Joseph! It was truly magical and made in heaven! Most of all we enjoyed seeing all those smiles! Our children are truly fantastic!

Rode & Norton St Philip children enthusiastically accepted our Wonka Challenge to become entrepreneurs for a month.  Each class was given a crisp £20 note from either FORS or NSP PTFA and their task was to make as much profit as they could before the end of November.  The winning class would then decide how to spend the total profit raised by both schools!
The children created beautiful wrapping paper, decorations, key-chains, calendars, placemats and decorated plates which were all snapped up by happy customers. The amazing total profit was a fantastic £889.95!!! The winning class, by £45 was Pink Panthers Class, This was a truly extraordinary effort by all and huge congratulations must go to all the children and staff for being so brilliant and to FORS, NSP PTFA and all our customers, for being so supportive.
