Saint Blaise Primary School

st blaise school milton logoThis term classes are engaged in some great topics. Oak class are learning about eggs. A mysterious golden egg hatched revealing a dragon that they are now busy caring for. Poplar class are finding out about superheroes. They are looking at fictional heroes and everyday heroes including people who help us. Willow class continue to explore Stone Age to Iron Age and are looking forward to a workshop at Hill End. Maple class are learning about natural disasters. They have created and exploded volcanoes and thought about the impact of tsunamis.

 

     
  The children had a wonderful day learning how to ride scooters safely and practising new tricks. Some of the staff also enjoyed learning a new skill.  

Poplar and Willow class enjoyed watching Lilly and Rhea plant an amnesty tree at the Redrow site. The girls won a poetry writing competition so that they could have the honour of helping the Parish Council.

 

 

     
Staff and children alike had great fun during World Book Day. We shared favourite books and enjoyed Rev Phil’s worship about books.

st blaise school milton logoAs you may be aware Oxfordshire County Council has submitted planning permission so that the school can be expanded to accommodate 210 pupils (1 Form Entry School).   We are delighted that Red Dragon Pre-school will have a home on the site alongside Reception and KS1. The plans are available on our school website - www.st-blaise.oxon.sch.uk/our-school/school-future/.

 

The new building is planned to open in September 2020 and building work will begin late summer. We will keep you posted as we gain a better understanding of timescales.

 

The Wizard of Oz
Key Stage 2 have had a busy term preparing and performing The Wizard of Oz. The production was colourful and vibrant and combined lots of dance pieces with well-known songs and dialogue. Thank you to everyone who came along and enjoyed the journey from Kansas to the Emerald City.  The children were magnificent – they took part with great energy and commitment and showed huge amounts of determination learning lines and dance routines.  We hope that more of the community will come and see future productions.

st blaise school milton logoHappy New Year from all at St Blaise. The term has started well. We have welcomed four new members of staff and three new pupils, so we now have 90 pupils. As many of you will be aware in July we are due to start an expansion project. The school will become a one form entry school from September 2020. The local authority has applied for planning permission for 4 new classrooms to house Red Dragon Pre-school and Key Stage One. In order to achieve this the playground will be located at the rear of the school making it safer for the pupils and linking to our science garden. Please have a look at the link for more details. https://www.st-blaise.oxon.sch.uk/our-school/school-future/
