  • The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be

    Published 10/09/21

    The whole school embarked on an exciting new year project all based on the beautiful book The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be.  

    The book follows a group of children as they each build their very own hot-air balloons. As they work together, leaning into their own skills and processes, to fill the sky with beautiful colours, we discover that the same is true for life- it's more beautiful and vibrant when our differences are celebrated.

    We shared the story in class and discussed our thoughts about this book, looking forwards to the year ahead.  We then all created a hot air balloon for a special whole school display to show how beautiful it is when we share our talents and abilities, and learning together at Stanton can be a lot of fun!

    We were also very privileged to have the opportunity to see a real hot air balloon being inflated.  So without a cloud in the sky, the children set up to a local field to watch in awe and amazement at the size and beauty of the oldest form of human flight. 

    Listen to Mrs Anderson explaining how a hot air balloon is inflated. 

    Thank you to Prestige Grounds for giving the children an experience that won't forget! 

    Finally, we used our experience to inspire our writing - imagining what it would be like to go for a ride in a hot air balloon.

    What do you think it would be like to be high in the sky?

  • Fantastic Sports Day

    Published 02/07/21

    The sun was shining on Stanton Sports Day and the children were incredibly excited after missing out last year. The day started with Amazon class working hard to earn points for their house in the 5 events that our creative Y6 children had put together. They all proved popular and certainly got the pulses racing as the children gave maximum effort; perhaps the overall favourite may have been the shade and ice-pop station, perfect to cool down and refresh after working up a sweat. After break time it was Darling’s turn to show what they could do, swiftly followed by the Rhine class bubble who were fiercely competitive as always.

    The children then took a break with a picnic lunch on the field while the morning scores were tallied and last minute preparations made for the afternoon events. The afternoon began with sprints quickly followed by perennial favourites: the sack and egg and spoon races. All the children really gave their all and there were many delighted faces as their efforts earned a place or effort sticker at the finishing line, all the races scored more points for their houses. Skipping races came next followed by the eagerly anticipated and traditional Stanton ‘slow’ bike race. A new race this year was the Darling balance bike race which was a massive hit with Amazon and Rhine class watching on, as well as the few spectators we were allowed in. Some ‘long’ distance races followed with the children showing great perseverance to get round in good time in the now bright sunshine. The finale though was left to our Year 6 students who designed their own ‘special race’ which involved skipping ropes, parachutes, hoops, bats and balls and water!

    It was wonderful to be able to return to some semblance of normality with our sports day and we are really hoping next year we can invite all of our parents and carers in to enjoy.
