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.

Key Worker/Vulnerable Provision School is open to key workers and vulnerable children from 8:35 - 3:15 each week day. Places must be booked. To book a space at this, please contact the school office on the Wednesday of the week before you'd like your child to start. Children should be dropped in school between 8:35 and 8:45 at the hall entrance.
Due to coronavirus and our reception children having to have a period of isolation (just as we were going to start practicing our nativity performance), we had to adapt our nativity this year. Nothing gets you in the mood for Christmas like a nativity performance, so we were determined to produce one. Well done to all of the children who took part in this, the reception staff that were involved in creating this and also to our very talented Miss Jennings for recording and compiling this video. We hope that you enjoy watching it.
