Latest sports events
There is so much great sport happening across the school, we thought it would be an idea to post a gallery of the latest events. Below you will find pictures from the KS2 'Circus Girls' activity at Ponds Forge, the Y3/Y4 Tokyo Olympic event at the EIS, the Y3/4 'Sports Hall athletics' competition (with some of the individual winners on the night) and finally, the Y1 cricket at Ponds Forge. Well done to all of the children involved!
Internet Safety Information for Parents
Thank you so much to all of the parents and carers who came along to the Internet Safety meeting today! Here are a couple of the links that I used:
A great general source for parents and carers: https://www.internetmatters.org/

Y5 basketballers do school proud
The Y5 basketball team came within a whisker of winning the Links tournament this week. After battling their way through the games, showing impressive flair and accuracy, they earned a 3rd place finish. Well done to all the boys and girls.
Pipworth's 'Young Voices' make themselves heard
The Pipworth choir had the privilege of attending the Young Voices event in Spring term, making their voices heard amongst the hundreds of other school children who filled the FlyDSA Arena. Singing a variety of songs, the children had an amazing time, even getting the chance to witness a fantastic performance from Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley! What a treat!
Athletics team set the pace
Pipworth's indoor athletics team comfortably overcame their first hurdle in this year's competition by winning the area finals at Park Academy. Facing 5 other local schools, Pipworth's boys and girls won by a massive 40 point margin on the night and have booked their place in the Links final at All Saints on the 18th December. Well done to everyone involved and good luck!

Panto season comes to Pipworth
The children had a fantastic time today, when they had the chance to watch a pantomime version of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' in the hall. Thanks to the hard work of the PIPPTAC team, funds were raised to stage the show as a special treat for the school, and what a treat it was! Singing, dancing and joking, this was a version of this famous story that had something for everyone - including Mrs Kenyon doing a pretty good 'Gangnam Style'! Well done to everyone who helped to make this magical afternoon happen.
School's 90th birthday celebrations

Help your child to become a great reader
Reading with your child for just 5-10 minutes every day can have a massive impact on their learning, which can go on to improve their chance of success in life. They don't have to read a book - it can be a comic, a magazine, a newspaper or an internet page.
Listening to children read is good, but discussing what they are reading is even better. For examples of how to do this, and other helpful tips about reading with kids, check out the videos on this page.
Practise assembly songs at home!
Check out the singing assembly page to see what we've been singing at school. You can find the lyrics on the videos or on the page itself.
