We endeavour to widen the experience of the children we teach. Whenever possible, subject to the availability of staff expertise, we try to provide the opportunity to acquire new skills and interests.
Special events are often held within school. The theme of the events vary – sometimes it can be to support a particular project or learning priority or to mark a special occasion or national celebration.
Visits from and visitors to school are frequently arranged for the children, in the course of class work. These vary from class to class and from year to year.
Year 6 children are given opportunities to go on a residential visit and also to take part in a variety of activities and experiences. This gives the children firsthand experience of other people and places. We spend a few days away at the Diocesan Retreat Centre at Myddelton Grange and also have a day of adventurous activities.
Do you remember your first day at school? Or the first time you were sent to see the head? What about first time you stood on the starting line clutching an egg and spoon? School is the place where we experience many ‘firsts’, and the most memorable is re-lived through the songs and sketches in this hilarious, emotionally-charged production by our Year 6 children.
Many thanks to Mrs Shelton for her hard work and dedication.
Thank you to all who attended the summer fair, contributing to its success. The sun shone, there was a good atmosphere and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you to the Friends of St Ignatius and Parishioners who organised the events and also to the volunteers who put in so much hard work to make and serve refreshments and to run the stalls and games.
