The snow may be causing trouble for some, but the pupils at the Lower Roaches School have been enjoying it, with some snow ball throwing and sledging!

Staff and pupils from Upper School had a fun filled maths day!! We had some brilliant costumes such as 007, uno cards, 101 Dalmatians and bingo numbers.

Class groups got locked in the Science Lab and had to figure out the mathematical challenges in order to escape!!!

As part of Chinese cultural week Roaches pupils took part in a table tennis tournament.  Having spent weeks preparing for the event, Nathaniel attended TTA  (table tennis anonymous) for advice and help after losing a crucial game.

In a rare break from the exacting challenges of academic work during Christmas week (^^) some of the pupils went sledging in the Roaches! Thankfully only the staff team suffered life changing injuries.

Murder at Old Sams!

posted 17 Jan 2018, 07:13 by Matt Wilson   [ updated 18 Jan 2018, 05:52 ]

The Pupil CSI team at Old Sams School are currently investigating a particularly grisly murder in their class.  All pupils are accounted for and likewise no staff have failed to make it on duty.  As yet, the victim is unidentified.

However, the carpet cleaning services have refused to clean up pencil sharpenings along with the blood.  This will remain a chore for the class once the body parts have been removed.

Merry Christmas!

                                                                                                                 Josh managed to make it into school - despite the snow in the Roaches, and created one of these beautiful carol singers! 
We wish all of our pupils and their families a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year, from all at The Roaches Lower School.

We came to school on Children in Need day in spots or non-uniform to raise money. The children learned about where the proceeds will go to and enjoyed the morning.

Serenity farm - fun with the animals!

The children have enjoyed a trip to Serenity Farm last week. They have enjoyed grooming the ponies, mucking out and petting the goat and horses. They also fed the pigs and the other animals too. A fun time was had by all!
