This week we held our Big Arts Week Exhibition for our pupils which showcased the wonderful art work that our pupils created before the holidays. Each year group created art work which reflected a different continent:
Reception - North America
Year 1 - Africa
Year 2 - Europe
Year 3 - South America
Year 4 - Antarctica
Year 5 - Asia
Year 6 - Oceania
Unfortunately, due to Covid, we have been unable to have our parents in school to see the wonderful work produced. We have however created the video below to share our art work with you. We hope that you enjoy watching it.
Year 3 today had a visit from Zoolab. This visit was organised to compliment their studies about the Amazon Rainforest. During this session, the children (and our staff) got to learn about, see and handle a range of animals which are native to this rainforest including rats, snakes, tarantulas, frogs and many more. Our Year 3s really enjoyed this session.
If you ever need first aid at Colmers Farm, Year 3 is now the place to visit. Year 3 this week had their first aid training day where they learnt how to deal with a range of injuries, along with how to put people into the recovery position, how to do CPR and what to do if somebody is chocking. Our Year 3s really enjoyed this training and those children I spoke to afterwards had certainly learnt lots. At Colmers Farm Primary School, we believe passionate that all of our children in their time with us should receive first aid training.
As Doctor Seuss said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Reading is an activity that we highly value at Colmers Farm Primary School. It is such an important activity for children (and adults) to regularly take part in. Tuesday this week marked the end of our Accelerated Reader competition, where we challenged everybody in KS2 to read as many words as they could in a week.
At the end of March, we found our that Colmers Farm had won the MATs innovation project with our idea which was to turn one of our spare rooms into a new art and design and technology studio and to employee a specialist art and deign and technology teacher. At Colmers Farm we are really exited and passionate about developing our provision within these areas, which will provide our children with a wide range of experiences, skills and other benefits. We are delighted to announce that the construction phase of our project has now begun. See the photos below.

At Colmers Farm Primary School, our children are always learning. One of the most important skills any of us could learn though is how we could help somebody in a medical emergency. Years 3 and 5 learnt exactly this on Monday and Tuesday this week, when they had 2 hours of first aid training. Here our children learnt about how to get help in an emergency; how to carry out CPR; how to put people in the recovery position and how to treat burns, bleeding, broken bones, choking and head bumps.
On Monday 28th June, our reception children were visited by the animal lady as part of their animals topic... and she naturally did not come alone. She brought with her some of her hairy and not so hairy friends to meet our wonderful children. These included a skunk, a snake, an owl and a gecko.
On Friday, we held our annual sports day. We had some great weather (thankfully) and the children loved taking part in a range of events during the day. Once again, due to Coronavirus, we unfortunately were unable to have parents with us. We are sorry for the disappointment that this will have caused for many of you.
Please find below our plan for our return to school on Monday 8th March (please click on the two images). Please read the letter and the booklet carefully, as they both contain important information that you need to know. Paper copies of this information are also being given out to those children who are currently in school and will be posted to those who are not. Please note that the decision to close school at 12:00 on a Friday will be initially reviewed at Easter.
