It’s all change at lunchtime…

We’ve decided to make lunchtimes even better at school.

The yard is now split into different zones, and there are loads of different activities for the children to join in with: skipping, basketball, dancing, drama, football, cricket, circle games, parachute activities, creative play and construction, the quiet zone and lots more.

The smiling faces tell their own story…

The Daily Mile

This week, we’ve started doing The Daily Mile. It’s a great way to keep fit and have fun. A mile is roughly ten laps around the big yard – as long as you don’t cut the corners – but it’s really about running, jogging or walking as far as you can in 10 minutes.

Important – Back to School Information

For children in Years 1-6, school will re-open on Tuesday 5th September.

Reception start on Thursday 7th September.

Rainbows, Pre-Nursery and Nursery start on Monday 11th September.


The school office will be open Monday 4th September between 10 – 11am and again between 1 – 2pm for those parents who would like to buy school uniform.


We hope that you have all had a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you.

The Book Bus is coming to school

On Thursday 13th July, The Book Bus will be coming to school for the whole day. The Book Bus sells books at discounted prices (up to 75% off shop prices).

The bus will be in the playground before school and after school, so parents can go on board with their children.

Each class will also have the chance to go onboard and buy a new book. Children can bring money into school so that they can buy a new book.

Please come along at the following times to get on board the Book Bus:

8:00 – 8:45

3:15 – 4:00

‘Hola’ from Barcelona!

Some of Year 5 and 6 are in Barcelona. We arrived safely at 10pm, and we’re looking forward to a busy day of sightseeing tomorrow. Oh, and we love our rooms in the hostel – some of them even have an ‘upstairs’!
Here are some pics of our trip so far…

We’ll post more pictures on Twitter (@stsilasschool), and just before I go to bed, here’s the weather forecast for the next few days…

Why is maths so important?

On Friday, lots of parents came for a short talk about the importance of maths to children’s lives.  After the talk, parents went into classes to take part in a maths lesson with their children.  It was a great event, and we would like to thank all the parents who came for giving up their time.  For those who couldn’t come, the information has been put onto the parents’ pages that can be found on the maths tab on the website.
