South Northants and Daventry Cross Country
On Wednesday 24th November, we took most of years 4, 5 and 6 over to Daventry Sports Park for the annual South Northants and Daventry Cross-Country. All of the children were fantastic and, as always, really encouraged each other to the end of every race. They all performed fantastically well and came in very tired at the end of their races, showing that they had pushed themselves.
We had lots of excellent results but a special mention must go to Toby C for coming first in the year 4 boys race, Edward S and Florence L, who both finished third in their respective races (year 6 boys and year 6 girls). Everyone who took part will hopefully have come home feeling really proud of themselves and be keen to continue to take part, especially those who have never competed in a long distance race before.
On Thursday 11th November, we gathered at the war memorial to read out the names of East Haddon's fallen soldiers and to hold two minutes silence at 11 am. Thank you to Nye, for playing the Last Post so beautifully for us on his cornet.
Red class made this handsome Guy Fawkes thanks to some well-timed clothing donations! Thank you also to Mr Barnes for setting poor
Guy on top of the bonfire for us.
Guy Fawkes is the one on the right!

Red Nose Day 2021
The children came to school with a variety of red noses, crazy hair and hats to raise some money for this good cause. We raised £98.50, so well done everyone!
The children thoroughly enjoyed making their Christingle oranges this year. Although we couldn't join together as a whole school, the classrooms were very magical as the candles were lit and prayers said. Thank you all for your donations - we raised an amazing £270.17! Many thanks to Lynne Threadgold for organising and donating the oranges.
We raised £108.96 for Children in Need by all bringing a donation and coming to school in our pyjamas! Well done everyone, a fantastic amount raised for such a great charity.
At 11am, on Wednesday 11th November, the whole school stood for 2 minutes silence, after which, the names of East Haddon's fallen soldiers were heard. We were glad to still be able to participate in this tradition, with social distancing in place.
Blue Class DT Project
We have been designing embedded systems to go in houses to make our lives easier or to save energy. Some examples are automatic showers with sensors underneath the shower and automatic light sensors to turn the lights off in an empty room.
Guilsborough Drama Day
On Thursday 12th March, Years 5 and 6 took part in a drama workshop based around Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. The children began by looking at the different sections of the Globe Theatre, then learnt a typical Elizabethan dance. They then did a workshop on the ‘seven states of tension’ and freeze-framed scenes from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. It was a brilliant day and we all really enjoyed it. Many thanks to Mr Jackson and Sixth Formers at Guilsborough School.
