Fun in the Snow - February 2015

Spelling Bee 2015

Following on from last year’s successful Spelling Bee, we will be running it again later in the summer term. Initially we will be holding a class spelling bee in the final week of the spring term w/c 23rd March in order to find out the house teams.

Please click here to view the spelling words for all year groups for the children to learn and practice. The words come directly from the new National Curriculum for KS2 and from the Phonics Programme for FS/KS1. All children will take part in the spelling bee as it is a helpful way of checking these words. One winner from each year group for each house will be selected and the house teams will be announced at the beginning of the summer term, along with further details about the spelling bee final.

News from School Friends in Australia!

The school has been very fortunate to receive a message from Mrs Ann Gregory, a niece of George Threader, who was the Headmaster at Barnabas Oley in the 1950s. Mrs Gregory now lives in Australia, but she obviously has fond memories of staying in Gransden as a child.

Please see our History and Photo Gallery page to read all the things that Mrs Gregory remembers about Great Gransden and our school!
