Reindeers need a lot of energy on Christmas Eve, and thanks to Enjoy Club they now have plenty of food to keep them going through the night. They followed a simple recipe using oats and glitter to make Reindeer Food. Mmm!
The quality of Home Learning this term has been outstanding. Some amazingly creative work has been submitted this term, including a powerpoint, some beautiful artwork and a video. Miss Lovelock was so impressed that the Home Learning submissions will be displayed around the school to celebrate the acheivements of our students.
Sadly, not all entries could win. Each teacher has chosen one child from their class to be the Home Learning Challenge Champion.
Well done to all children who completed the Home Learning Challenge, we hope to see more excellent Home Learning in the New Year.
Home Learning Challenge Champions
Each week class teachers award the Aspire trophy out to a student who has gone the extra mile with their learning and behaviour. They will be invited to celebrate this achievement with Miss Lovelock at an afternoon tea. Our Aspire winners for this week are pictured below. Well done to you all!
As there were no Aspire assemblies this week not all classes have awarded the Aspire Trophy, but we look forward to celebrating with all classes after the Christmas Holidays.
Golden Leaf Winners
This half term the ROOT GLPS are focusing on is 'overcoming challenges'. Each week the class teacher will select a student who has demonstrated this ROOT, and will have their name on a Golden Leaf in the entrance hall. Well done to you all.
As there were no Golden Leaf assemblies this week not all classes have awarded the Golden Leaf, but we look forward to celebrating with all classes after the Christmas Holidays.
The whole school attendance from last week remained the same at 95.8% attendance. This means we are still below our attendance target of 97%. The attendance since the beginning of the school year is 96%.
What a fantastic week we have had in year 5! We had a great response to the home learning challenge this half term. Miss Lovelock was very impressed with the amount of work produced by year 5! Well done to all those children who participated and shared something on Monday. The quality of work produced reflected how hard you have worked this half term and is was so enjoyable to listen to everyone share their learning.
Year 5 have also been contributing to our displays in school and creating 'firework' art to illustrate the text we have been studying this term: The Firework Maker's Daughter. Watch this space to see the final 'display!'
The Young Filmmakers Club at Great Linford Primary School have been very busy. Throughout the Autumn Term they have created short movies, a Minecraft advert, a news broadcast and Great Linford's Got Talent. They presented their a preview of their video in a whole school assembly on Wednesday 14th December, and each member of the Young Filmmakers Club will get their own copy when editing has finished.
The Club Leader, Joanna, awarded certificates to all the Young Filmmakers who completed the course this term. Joanna is very proud of how hard our students have been working and cannot wait to share the finished product with us.

The Reading Challenge was such a success! There were hundreds and hundreds of Golden Tickets in the raffle box; 176 of these tickets were from Year 3 students alone! The children agreed that this challenge was enjoyable, that it encouraged them to read more often, and that their reading skills have improved.
Next term not only will there be raffle prizes on offer, but also House Points! The House with the most Golden Tickets will be awarded a whopping 100 House Points.
Well done to everyone who took part in the challenge. Keep reading over the Christmas Holiday and we hope to see even more Golden Tickets awarded next term.
Mrs Regan and Miss Vaughan have been so proud of the Acorns Class this term. They have impressed Mrs Regan and Miss Vaughan so much that they decided the Acorns Class deserved a treat. They watched the Christmas movie 'Bob's Broken Sleigh' whilst drinking juice and eating pizza.
Well done Acorns Class! Keep up the good work and behaviours.
WOW! What a fun filled day Year Three had yesterday. We were proud to represent our school at Willows Care Home up the road. While we were there, we sang three Christmas songs to spread happiness and joy to all of the residence. They were very impressed with our singing, hats and the mince pies that we brought along.
Another highlight of our day was singing to our adults at the Christmas Fayre, we hope you liked our singing too, even if Miss Dean did let the party cannon off in the wrong direction.
A great day had by all, we are sure you will agree, the children were fabulous! We hope you enjoy your Christmas break and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year. Miss Flynn and Miss Dean.
What a fantastic Christmas Fayre! There were plenty of stalls, refreshments and performances to keep everybody entertained until the end. Even Santa and his elves came down to visit!
The muscians and dancers were absolutely superb. Despite having such a large audience they performed beautifully and with confidence.
Thank you to the Friends of Great Linford Primary School, volunteers, and performers for all of your hard work. It was an excellent event!
