National Numeracy Day!

Ellingham explored number this week as the children took part in National Numeracy Day on Wednesday. The day was launched with an assembly where the children discussed Maths in everyday activities from driving to cooking and shopping. Each year group then had a fun number based activity including dancing, baking, budgeting, working out their age on different planets and even rapping. The children all enjoyed seeing number in a new light!

Ellingham's Groovy Shoes Days

It's the end of the Walk to School Week focus and the children have had a great time counting their points in class to celebrate their healthy approach to starting the day.  The winners will be announced after half-term.  Thank you for your support with this.

On Tuesday, we had fun by coming to school in groovy shoes.

Check your children's bags for the FoE summer fair raffle tickets and encourage them to sell as many as they can over half-term.  This is a great fund-raiser for the school so, if you need more, there will be spare tickets available from the school office on request.  There are some great prizes for all the family. much more!

The Icing on The Cake Sale - Thank you

Thank you for your donations and support at the FoE Cake Sale. 

Reception children iced cakes to sell at the cake sale and made posters to advertise it. They hope you enjoy them! 


Nursery Visit the Post Box 

This week the children have been learning about postal workers and some of the children wrote themselves a letter. They then went on a walk to the post box to post it and then waited for it to arrive. 

Some of the children have already received their letters in the post! 

Year 2 Round Britain Bake Off

Year 2 spent the morning baking as part of their Geography topic. They have been learning all about the UK and made a well-known dish from each of the four countries. The smell of Welsh cakes, soda bread, scones and oat cakes filled the classrooms and the children can't wait to taste their bakes at home!
