Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy

Whole School

EYFS and KS1 had the most magical day out in Skegness where they paddled in the sea, built sandcastles and even buried Mr Bell!

In today’s assembly we were thrilled to have the opportunity to hear Sarah Siggs read her well known children’s book Mud Boy! We discussed how upsetting unkind words can be and to ensure we have a trusted adult that we could talk to if things were being overwhelming.

Sports Day & Skinners ice-cream ... the perfect combination!

Today at magical maths we found out the teacher's age and how many bars of chocolate she had. We were able to work out the numbers thrown on two dice and able to work out someone's age. Then we used our Magical Maths Calculators to reveal the chosen number. Finally we played and equals to =.

A Brilliant first Magical Maths Club . We went through our squaring tricks followed by our Magical Maths Bingo and finally Heads and Tails

We were absolutely blown away by poet Paul Cookson today who came in to give out children a masterclass in writing and performing poetry.

Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations! We spent a wonderful afternoon altogether on the field having an afternoon tea followed by lots of exciting activities!

Picture News visited us today to lead us in our exploration of the Queen’s platinum jubilee as we look at understanding this momentous occasion before our jubilee picnic

Open the Book engaged us in a live performance of David and Goliath. It was amazing fun although Goliath was very big and scary. We learned all about being brave even if the unkind and scary people are bigger than we are.

Magical Maths visited and left the whole school spellbound by the mystery and majesty of numbers! What an amazingly engaging, super good fun session that none of us were ready to come to an end! Professor Poopinstinkel and Stately Holmes were the perfect sleuthing team!

Dojo Reward Time! When the opportunity arose to spend 450 dojo’s on ‘hot chocolate with the head teacher’, these girls had no idea Mrs Booth and Mr Bell would take the afternoon off and leave them to make the decisions! As you can see, the girls tackled some of the biggest head teacher jobs, including: which Jenga block to remove, how many marshmallows to add to the hot chocolate and whether or not it was possible to eat a whole Jaffa cake in one bite! The school was in immensely safe hands 😁

Plant a tree of hope ... another way our amazing school family reached out to show the world that we ‘see’ them and that we ‘hear’ them. Making a positive impact for future generations to enjoy; letting our lights shine into the future!

Red Nose Day 2022: upon request, we had a yellow and blue themed non-uniform day in support of all those impacted by the war in Ukraine. One child asked, “Mrs Booth, please may I wear white instead because that symbolises hope and peace ... and that’s what I wish for the whole world.”

The Great Book Giveaway! When Mrs Smith introduced Read Write Inc across school in January, she knew there was only one person for the job of making sure all of our magical books found their way to wonderful new homes - Mr Rowlatt! And boy, did he do a great ‘Del Boy’ impression! So many families went home with arms full of books and children ready to go on lots of reading adventures! It was definitely the best way to round off 2021!

Christmas lunch ... Yummy! What a fabulous team of Midday Supervisors who made sure every single person in our school family enjoyed something yummy to eat, had some fun and games with the cracker gifts/ jokes and made the most of being able to show off their best Christmas dance moves! ‘Feliz Navidad’ was a crowd pleaser!

The 2021 Christingle Service had to be held remotely for the second year running but it still completely captured the awe and wonder of the service which is usually held in St Nicholas Church. Every member of our school family was invited to take part in quiet reflection and thankful prayer. Our school was definitely united in spirit. #LetYourLightShine

Children In Need Day. We had a visit from Pudsey Bear to help us remember exactly what Children in Need day is all about. We watched a film to learn about how the money we raise is spent to help children.

Noah’s Ark loved having their photo taken with Pudsey Bear this morning and finding out why we raise money for Children in Need day. This afternoon they decorated cupcakes to raise money 🧁

Anti-Bullying Week! Odd sock day to raise awareness of bullying.

Everybody loves shining their reading light at St Nicholas CE Primary Academy
