Today Woodlands class enjoyed baking and tasting Star shaped Welsh cakes after listening to the Christian Nativity story. Thinking about the Star the class decided it was a sign of love, hope and peace.


Last week, Year 4 donned their chefs hats and created their own pizzas with a real Italian chef! The children ventured to Express to take part in a pizza masterclass. The smell was AMAZING (if only there was a *chefs kiss* emoji!!) ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

The Junior School was given a thought provoking assembly by Louise this morning. Children shared their thoughts about how we can measure love and kindness. The children told us that love and kindness can be shown in the simplest of ways. Even a smile or holding the door for someone could mean so much more than we could ever know.

The Lord Rees of Ludlow, Martin Rees, is an exceptionally clever and interesting man who also happens to be an Old Bedstonian! Hereโ€™s a clip of him in interview today with Scarlett, one of our Year 12 students, who has a keen interest in Astronomy and Astrophysics, amongst other things. Despite Lord Rees being fiercely intelligent, the 15th Astronomer Royal and one of the most respected Scientists of our generation (amongst many other accolades), he is a softly spoken man, who is kind with his demeanour, time and knowledge. Catch the rest of the interview next weekโ€ฆ

Today is Odd Sock Day! This event was created to highlight that it is okay to be different. In the Junior School we frequently celebrate or achievements but also our differences and that it's important to be respectful of others for our unique qualities.


Did you know today was world type 1 diabetes day? We did, and thatโ€™s because we have our very own expert here at school. Joe shared with us his journey, and to help spread awareness his friends donned blue face paint. The children went on to create some information posters all about type 1 diabetes and learnt about famous women and men who are also type 1 diabetic. ๐Ÿ’™

In preparation for Armistice Day today, the children looked at the history behind Remembrance Day. They particularly liked learning about Cher Ami the carrier pigeon, what the Cenotaph is and then went on to do some remembrance maths-artwork. Years 5 & 6 wrote some fantastic, emotive poems reflecting on Remembrance. ๐ŸŒน โœ๏ธ


Congratulations to Elene who received her gold certificate today for the senior maths challenge last month. She was also the best in school and will be sitting the next round next week!

Woodland Class have been using Talk4Writing to help them to develop their understanding of โ€˜The Owl Who was Afraid of the Darkโ€™. Engaging in conversation, creating storyboards and sharing ideas about books deepens childrenโ€™s understanding of literature and creates solid learning foundations for future years.


Using ICT in maths is common practice in the Junior School, as Archie (year 5) demonstrates how to find the prime number! ๐Ÿ–ฅ
