Run The Rainbow



On Thursday 28th June, children, families and friends took part in the first ever Carr Hill colour run.  Our Run the Rainbow event proved to be very popular.



The safety of our children is extremely important to us at Carr Hill.  Our Road Safety Awareness Week has highlighted some of the key points we think are crucial to ensuring that children, parents and the local community can work together to help to keep the environment safe for all.


Come and join in the fun with our new toddler group.

(all pre-Nursery age children welcome)

Rounders Tournament


Mrs Smith and Miss Mallatrat had the pleasure of taking Carr Hill’s year 5/6 rounders team to a rounders tournament held at the Elizabethan Academy on Tuesday the 5th June.  Mrs Smith was so proud of the teamwork and determination shown amongst all of the students at Carr Hill. Their efforts paid off, as the school won second place overall! A huge well done to the Carr Hill rounders team!

Building the Bug Hotel

The competition winners spent the afternoon building a Bug Hotel in the Community Garden with the help of Mr and Mrs Shaw. The children made sure it had room on the ground floor for hedgehogs with a special entrance tunnel and lots of dry leaves for bedding. They used old plates to create a cool damp spot for frogs or toads. Next they made a butterfly apartment with a shoe box and egg cartons which will provide a suitable spot to attach a chrysalis.

Wooden blocks with holes drilled in them were added to provide spaces for solitary bees. While the children collected up the materials that we had been storing they found woodlice, spiders, worms, slugs, snails and a centipede so we know our hotel already has some residents! After playtime the children were rewarded with a snack and then had enough energy to nail down a waterproof roof; hammering proved very popular. Lastly there was just time to construct a Frog House for any frogs that wish to stay close to the pond. We will now be keeping a close eye on how much wildlife our new garden is able to attract.

Congratulations to the winners of the Bug Hotel Competition

PTA Easter Egg Design Competition

We had a wonderful response to our PTA Easter Egg Design Competition and were inundated with entries.  The designs the children created were outstanding, varying from detailed illustrations to 3D designs incorporating fluffy chicks and football goals.

The high standard of design resulted in not one, but two winners from each class being chosen, and they received a special Easter treat.

Well done to everyone who entered!


Reading Lottery

Congratulations to our amazing Spring 2 Reading Lottery winners. Each child has shown an excellent attitude to their reading and will get to choose  their own book to keep and treasure.


On Thursday 19th April, KS1 visited Lincoln Castle, as part of their ‘Captivating Castles’ topic. 
The children had a fantastic time, exploring what it was like living in a castle during medieval times. See the full article HERE
