  • Clap for Children

    Published 01/04/21

    We clapped for our carers, now we've clapped for our children.

     

    Our children are the first generation to be confined to their homes; to have their freedom taken away; to not be able to play with their friends.

     

    On the last day of the Spring Term, all staff joined together, watched on by our pupils, to clap for them.  We wanted to let them know how much we appreciate them, that we applaud them and that we thank them.

    Schools across the county Clapped for Children with Child Friendly Gloucestershire.

  • Year 2 India Day

    Published 26/03/21

    Why is our food so fabulous?

     

    Year 2 definitely had the chance to answer our big question on a ‘WOW’ day this week. The day began with the children immersing their senses in the spices, smells and sounds of India. Both classrooms were full of fun, laughter and discussion about Indian clothing, food, music and artefacts.. After this, the children got to shower the playground in powder paint, just as people would do in the festival of colours called Holi. Rangoli patterns were also made with some very intricate and imaginative designs. The highlight of the day was the Indian banquet and the children got to try a range of dishes such as pilau rice, samosas, onion bhajis, chicken bhuna, kolee molee and the favourite...naan bread! 

    “I wish we could turn back time and eat all of that food all over again” Zeke, Blue Class.

     

    Thank you so much to Indian Brasserie for cooking such a delicious feast for us. 

     

    We rounded off the day with some traditional Indian Dance, which was more of a shuffle than a dance after all the food we consumed! 

     

    It was lovely to have a special topic day, which we have not been able to do for so long.

  • Virtual Christmas performance

    Published 14/12/20

    As you know we have been working hard in school to keep things as normal as possible during this festive season, including Christmas parties and Christmas lunch.

    You would have been forgiven for thinking that the nativity, however, has had to be cancelled due to our inability to hold performances.  However, we really didn't want the children (or parents) to miss out.  So, we have been creative!

    Thanks to the enthusiasm of your wonderful children and the hard work of the teachers and teaching partners (and Mr Hill for his editing skills!), I am proud to say that we have produced an online montage depicting the nativity.

    Please click on the link below to enjoy our version of the Christmas story.

  • Kate Phillips Award 2020

    Published 14/07/20

    The Knowledge and Perseverance award is given in memory of Miss Kate Phillips, a former teacher at Naunton Park Primary School.  This year the award goes to Roan Evans. 

    Miss Phillips valued creativity, individuality and perseverance as among the most important qualities that a child could have and there is no doubt that Roan holds all of these attributes. 

    Roan is one of those people that we all wish we could be; he is the best of us. He shows a real enthusiasm for learning and a desire to achieve everything that he can. His attitude towards all aspects of school life has been nothing short of outstanding and he has demonstrated great determination to reach his potential. He is a conscientious worker with a genuine desire to meet the expectations of staff and he takes pride in every piece of work he does. Throughout his time at Naunton Park, Roan has proved that he has impeccable manners. He was an excellent talking partner who has been both supportive and encouraging to those he has worked with. Without fail, he has worked hard individually, in a pair or within a small group, Furthermore, he has proved to be an excellent role model to the younger children and has been everything that we would wish of a member of our school. All of this comes naturally to Roan with no thought to gaining praise or reward; he is quite simply, that child.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: ‘To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment’. Roan, please always be your wonderful self and make the world a better place simply by being here.
