We celebrated World Book Day on Friday 6th March. As is tradition, the children came to school dressed as their favourite book characters. Each class celebrated by hosting a Tea Party for parents. This provided an opportunity for parents and children to share a good book and enjoy a delicious biscuit treat. Thank you to the Friends of Coldfall for providing the refreshments on the day.
Flamingo had a lot of wonderful book characters!
Year 3 and 4 were treated to a visit from Mr Gum author, Andy Stanton. The children found his assembly thoroughly inspiring and entertaining.
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, Year 5 were treated to a morning of epic proportions, with interactive storytelling, music, and fun from Kid Normal authors, Chris Smith and Greg James. The children also had the opportunity to purchase a book and have it personally signed by the authors. We hope the children enjoyed the event as much as the adult accompanying them did.
Even teachers dressed up!
On Friday 14 February we were delighted to welcome Mungi Ngomane, the granddaughter of Desmond Tutu to Coldfall to talk to Y4-6 classes about her understanding of Ubuntu. She has written a wonderful book called “Everyday Ubuntu.” The children asked her really thought provoking questions…it was an inspiring morning!
Valentine’s Disco was a blast, you can see it for yourselves!!
Our spring term displays showcase our humanities learning across the school.
The staff panto was an original Coldfall version of Aladdin- here are some of the cast playing our favourite story characters!!
There were some amazing homemade costumes and the children enjoyed experiencing a range of mathematical problems, challenges and games.
Thank you to everyone for their support
Ubuntu is about recognising our interconnectedness and that everything we do makes a difference.
Here are some of the beautiful entries the children made.

By the summer term, every class will having taken part in a project, helping to raise the profile of art at Coldfall Primary School.
A big thank you must go to Sarah, as well as the Friends of Coldfall who are part-funding the majority of this exciting project. This type of work would not have been able to go ahead without their support and Sarah’s vision.
Below is a picture of Year 3 performing their poem, a video of a famous poem called “Life Doesn’t Frighten Me” by Maya Angelou, and a video of Xavier Cooper from Puffin performing a poem.
Thank you to all who took the time and effort to enter!
In the morning the whole school came together in the main hall for a special assembly to mark the occasion. During the assembly children and staff watched a slideshow of archive photos from down the years, the 90TH birthday poster winners were announced and we were even surprised by a guest appearance from Her Majesty the Queen.
The audience was also treated to a comedy sketch in which members of the leadership team, playing pupils from the 1930s, were chastised and punished for misdemeanours by Mr Philips who portrayed an old-fashioned headmaster, complete with mortarboard and stick.
A highlight of the assembly was seeing photos of current pupil’s Alfie and Jamie Payne’s Grandmother, who attended the school when it first opened, creating a line of continuity between 1928 and 2018.
Lunch was an all hands on deck, street part affair with children eating outside. There were a variety of sandwiches to choose from, as well brownies and scones. A great time was had by all!
