The weekly blog - keeping you up-to-date with school life; Stars of the Week; Housepoint winners and much more..

It was lovely to see so many of you at the end-of-term Topic Celebration yesterday.  The children absolutely love having you all in to work with them in the classroom.


This term's topic of Hollywood has been excellent and the children have enjoyed looking at movies and how they are created.


I appreciate your support this term and now enjoy a relaxing two weeks with some lovely family time as we prepare for term 2, and the build-up to Christmas.


School photos will come out the first week after half term, and you will have a week to order what you would like for yourselves and those little Christmas gifts.

If you are finding it hard to afford things at the moment, did you know that during the autumn you can make your own washing detergent for free using conkers?  Here is the recipe:

130g Conkers (about 10 good size ones)

Measuring jug

1 litre boiling water


Old detergent bottle

5-7 drops of your favourite essential oil - make sure for soap making.


Cut conkers into quarters, then remove the outer shell revealing the white centre.  Crush these into pieces and cover with 500ml boiling water - stir and leave overnight (at least 8 hours).

The next day use the sieve and strain off the thick creamy liquid into your 1 litre detergent bottle.  Put the soaked overnight pieces back in the measuring jug pour over another 500ml of boiling water and leave for 2 hours.  Strain with the sieve into the 1-litre bottle containing the 500ml already made.  Add your 5-7 drops of essential oil. 


To wash.  Hard water area: 100ml; soft 50ml in a cap and pop straight into the drum then add your clothes.  Free washing detergent.  I do use washing soda to soften my water in the detergent drawer so I use less detergent.  


Hope that helps.


Have a lovely holiday and we will see you all on Monday 30th October.
