Welcome to the News

There is always something going on at Darite. This page is where we share those amazing pieces of learning with you.

Wild Tribe Day

What an amazing day the whole school had on the 17th. To celebrate the end of SATs and to make the most of our wonderful grounds, the whole school enjoyed a day of Wild Tribe. There were fires, dens and cooking galore as well as scavenger hunts and tree identification. A fantastic day was had by everyone

Trethevy Quoit

On the 15th May, Class One took advantage of the amazing weather and walked up to Trethevy Quoit as part of their topic. They have been learning about the local area and what better way to embed their learning than from visiting a famous monument on our doorstep!

They enjoyed a picnic, countryside work and an opportunity to learn about the monument. A huge thank-you to all the parents and helpers for your support and accompaniment. 

Easter Assembly

Friday the 5th saw our Easter assembly take place compete with the eagerly awaited 2019 Darite Easter Bonnet Parade. What a high standard of entries there were! An independent adjudicator made the final decision to keep things fair and worthy winners were chosen. 

Well done to all those who entered and thank you to all the parents who joined us for the celebration. A special mention to Mrs Stevens for playing the piano to accompany the songs.

Winners and runners up.

Sporting Afternoon

The whole school came together on the 2nd April to take part in an Easter sporting event. The children from Class 3 who were not on the London trip, spent time on a Monday designing, planning and organising 7 different sporting events. The other children from the school then spent a fantastic afternoon taking part. The Class 3 children ran and scored the events and a great time was had by all. 

Scarecrow Fun

Class One have had great fun in the Wild Tribe area today as they made a very realistic scarecrow, built a fire and roasted some marshmallows. The other children in school were really jealous! Thanks to Miss Godby for the straw!

Literacy Stars

Class One have been working really hard on their instructions in English. They have looked at instructions, found the key features and then wrote a rough draft. They edited and improved their work and then used them to make their own egg and cress sandwich. They even used their own school-grown cress! Yum! 

World Book Day 2019

There where a host of characters from children's books new and old at Darite on the 7th March. To celebrate world book day, the children dressed up as their favourite characters. There was Arthur Dent, Hermione Granger and The Boy in the Dress to name a few!

The children all came together in the afternoon to watch the live lesson on CBBC and took part in the activities. They read to each other, desinged front covers for books and made friends a bookmark. It was a fantastic day! Well done to everyone for their costumes (and for grown-ups for helping). .

Magical Learning!
