When you walk through the door of Shillingstone School you will know immediately that this is a caring and inclusive school where everybody feels welcome.
With strong staff parent partnerships and a varied and engaging curriculum, children are motivated to achieve their full potential.
When pupils leave the school, it is with happy memories of their primary education and an enthusiasm for future learning.
We were very kindly offered a free box of books from an ex-teacher who now reviews children's books on her website 'Library Girl and Book Boy.' In order to receive this box of books, our librarians needed to raise money to cover the cost of the postage which they did through their recent cake sale. The librarians were very excited to receive the books this week and can't wait for the other children to read them. Thank you 'Library Girl and Book Boy!'
We were very excited to send four of our children to a Dorset school's Boccia competition at Queen Elizabeth's school in Wimborne. All of the children played brilliantly resulting in them winning two out of the three games played!
Congratulations to all of our orienteers who went along to St Nicholas Primary School in Child Okeford on Tuesday night. All the children worked in pairs and learnt how to orientate the map and find the key markers. They had a great time using the electronic dibbers to time each of the courses they completed. Well done to Josh G, Sydney, Henry, Nathan, Bobbie, Albie, Hollie, Isobel, Neve, Sammy, Ella, Olivia G, Raife and Ryan.
Some of the children from Desert Class have been working very hard during both lunchtime and after school clubs to prepare for last week's tag rugby event. They have really developed their match skills and did a fantastic job at the recent event which took place at Hazelbury Bryan Primary School. Well done for representing our school so well and a huge thank you for working so hard!
