At Friars we want our children to grow into healthy young adults. With this in mind, we focus on getting the children physically active as often as possible and attempt to find a sport to suit everyone. We invite a variety of agencies into the school to promote healthy living. We held a healthy eating focus week and found it so successful that we are going to continue this throughout the year.

On Wednesday 29th March, Steven from Rock Steady, came and delivered a very exciting assembly based on electric instruments. He was able to play electric guitar, drums, keyboard and sing (not all at the same time) and made some great sounds. We were all encouraged to join in and ‘rock’ with him as he played a selection of songs which we all knew. It was a very enjoyable experience for everyone.

We created an exhibition using work from years 3-6, using ‘Journey Through Time’ as our theme, demonstrating our cross-curricular approach to art and also the progress
What a brilliant day! The children and staff had a dress down day and donated to Comic Relief in order to wear their jeans and football strips.

The audience was delighted by the performances and the ‘lip syncers’ were all very professional with some fabulous dance moves included. It was very hard to pick the best, but staff voted for Shane

In Year 1, as part of our great fire of London learning, Mrs Bennett's friend Sue came and helped us to make a campfire. She brought her fire pit and we stood around the outside in a circle. We had to use different sized sticks to make the fire. Stick one was as thick as a match. Stick two was as thick as your finger and stick 3 as thick as your wrist! The flames were beautiful and we could feel the warmth even from the edge of the circle. The fire was very smoky so it was go
