Please remember swimming kits on Thursdays


Friday 14th June 2024


Another busy week. We've had sports day, which was great fun and a lot of effort was put in by all the children. Well done to the year 6's for the great effort needed to run the Netherton. We also had the Piggott Year 9 Leadership day which was a full day of great activities for the children to take part in.


Next week (Thursday 20th June) the children will need an extra set of clothes for swimming - an email will be sent with the details.

Book recommendation

When I was in year 5 my father took me to the local book shop. He let me wander the shelves and told me that I could choose whatever book I liked, but only one. I spent a good half hour looking through the shelves staring at the spines and enjoying the artwork on the covers. I found a few familiar books that I had seen at school or on my own shelves at home. Then I noticed a special display. There was a sword on it! I crept closer, mesmerised by the bold artwork on the front cover of a glorious tome. Above the display were a pair of gigantic dice. A poster on the stand said that I could be the main character. I could control what actions I took as I journeyed through a dungeon. 

I didn't even read the blurb!

I have read 'The Warlock of Firetop Mountain' many times. Myself, with my children and with my classes. It is one of the reasons I became an avid reader, and an author. It was 'the book' that got me to read when I was just starting on the reading journey. It is frustratingly hard to survive until the end without cheating. There are parts you can not complete without drawing your own map. It has pictures in it which gave me nightmares. It was and is brilliant.

Mr Phillips book recommendation is - The Warlock of Firetop Mountain by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone and the many, many other books in the Fighting Fantasy series.
