  • Library Open Lunch Hour

    Published 06/11/22

    This week we enjoyed our first open library lunch hour of Term 2. At the end of last term, Mrs Anderson and our team of librarians met to discuss how to make the most of our library space and welcome everyone in to enjoy the wonderful books we stock, including new books from our ‘Just Arrived’ section. The librarians had lots of fantastic ideas, including providing book themed activities during open lunch hour. This week, the children enjoyed bookmark making and then used their bookmark to enjoy a book from the library. Our librarians were on hand to make book recommendations and share books with our younger library visitors. Look out for new activities run by your school librarians, every Wednesday lunchtime! 📚

  • National Poetry Week Celebrations

    Published 30/10/22

    During Term 1 we celebrated National Poetry Day as a whole school, immersing the children in the poetry wonders of Michael Rosen. In class we explored, recited, performed and wrote our own poetry based on Michael Rosen’s entertaining works of art. We were blown away by the number of children across the school who took part in our Poetry Off by Heart competition and would like to say a huge congratulations to our finalists and of course, our overall winner for his emotive performance of ‘Hot Food’. A school of wonderful poets in the making! #motivateeducatenurture #NationalPoetryDay #michaelrosen

    Dear All

    Our good friends at Chippenham Pit Stop are busier than ever and they have asked us to let our contacts know that they have a number of job/ career opportunities available. Whether it is a few hours a week or full time, whether for mornings, evenings, weekends or a mix and whether you prefer the kitchen, front of house, shop or cleaning they have shifts available. If you are already skilled/experienced that’s great but certainly not essential – they are quite used to training and mentoring people new to the industry. So, whether you need a salary to pay the rent or a few extra pounds/week to pay the ever increasing bills, the Pt Stop team would love to hear from you! Please email for an application form or call in and have a chat.

  • Carnival Time at SSQ

    Published 14/09/22

    Congratulations SSQ on your fantastic float ‘Celebrating Reading’ - 2nd place Malmesbury Carnival

    Wow! It’s been an amazing couple of days with the whole school coming together to learn about and celebrate carnival time. As a school that is passionate about reading, we enjoyed reading Bisa’s Carnival, then used ideas from the book as stimulus for some creative carnival writing. We also took part in very loud and large samba workshop, made carnival cakes to sell and then the super fun finale - the procession at Malmesbury Carnival.

    Thank you to the parents & wider community for supporting and the amazing costumes, the staff - especially Mrs Anderson and family for organising and providing the float, and finally the children for representing the school with such enthusiasm.
