Our first and last post of 20/21 and what a strange year it has been! But on the last day of the year the children managed to have a whole school photo (in bubbles)
Thank you to all our children, parents and staff you have all been amazing.
To all our leavers, you will be missed but always part of our Polebrook family.
Have a super summer everyone and we look forward to seeing you all in September.

Welcome to our brand new school website! We have created the website to keep parents up to date with school news and notices, and to showcase some of the great things our pupils are achieving. The website is extremely easy to edit by all staff at the school, so check back soon for new updates!

Purple Class were invited to take part in Oundle School Science Week and spent the morning in a blow-up planetarium and making rocket cars!
The planetarium was brought to the school by colleagues from Imperial College London and inside the dome, a projection of space filled all of the walls and ceiling and it felt as if we were travelling through space! We got to see all of the planets in our solar system as well as star constellations and galaxies.
Next we were taken to one of the science labs where engineers from the Bloodhound project at University Swansea told us about their project to try and beat the land speed record. The children then needed to become engineers themselves and build their very own rocket cars! Once they were built, the children went out into the car park where their cars had a rocket attached to them and were then ignited to see how fast the cars could go – one of ours set a speed of over 43mph!
It was a fantastic opportunity and the children of Purple Class thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it has inspired some of our pupils to want to become scientists and engineers when they are older!

To commemorate Remembrance Day this year, Polebrook took part in a range of activities and came together in our playground for the 1 minute silence
Across school, our topic this term is World War 2 so each class completed activities to remember those who fought for us and enabled us to live our lives freely.
Key Stage 1 made some poppy wreaths and put them in our quiet area.
Key stage 2 studied the local area and war memorial and made poppies for our World War 2 display.
Thank you to those that donated money to the Poppy appeal and bought wristbands and poppies.

Polebrook raised over £324 this year for Children in Need, a staggering amount! We are so proud of the generosity from our pupils and families. Thank you so much!
The children (and staff!) came to school dressed in 'Spotacular' outfits and were able to purchase Children in Need merchandise.
Our Year 5/6 class created some thoughtful prayers and posters for Children in Need whilst the other classes took part in mental well-being lessons.
We all ended the day with the annual Children in Need Duck race with Quackman and Bobbin winning the race!
Thanks again for all your donations and support for this great cause.

Our Hot chocolate with the Head was off to a flying start this half term with lots of children enjoying a warm beverage with Mrs Coulthard!
If a child has read every day at home over 4 weeks, they are rewarded with a lovely cup of hot chocolate and the opportunity to spend quality time with our Head Teacher, sharing their love of reading and discussing books they have read.
We have implemented this session in order to promote a love of reading both at school and at home and we are so impressed with how hard the children (and parents!) have tried to read every single day.
Well done everyone!
I wonder who will be chosen next time?

With social distancing in place, each class were able to come together outside for a lovely Harvest Festival.
We managed to have a small window of sunshine in order to join together for a Harvest story from Mrs Coulthard, sing some of our favourite Harvest songs and listen to readings and prayers from our Year 5s and 6s.
It was a wonderful opportunity to share this special time with each other and celebrate our Harvest Festival!
Thank you so much for all the generous donations our parents and families have brought into school - these will all be donated to the Oundle Food Bank this week!

This year, our Leavers' and Celebration Assembly has been recorded during school time.
This is the Leavers' video, a chance to share the memories through a collection of photographs of our Year 6s from their time here at Polebrook. We will miss you all so much!
Thank you so much for all your continued support this year, enjoy the summer and we cannot wait to see you all again in September!
