On the 5th May Courthill Infant School had a wonderful day celebrating the coronation of King Charles 111. We started our celebrations with Mrs Carter crowning our own King of Courthill, Mr Sherlock! The children certainly found this to be a memorable Golden Assembly. The children loved playing ‘royal’ games in Fun, Fit, Friday such as; croquet and polo. We learnt all about King Charles, his coronation and the rest of the royal family. Years 1 and 2 enjoyed writing letters to the king asking if he could continue to help protect our planet. We finished our day by celebrating as a whole school on the playground with a bubble dance party! Thank you very much to the PTA for your help with providing every child a special Coronation Day bookmark as a keepsake to help commemorate this special day.
110 year Anniversary Day
On the 25th November we all celebrated our school’s 110 year anniversary. We had a fun and memorable day learning all about what school life was like at Courthill in 1912. The children loved exploring toys as well as singing popular songs and playing playground games from this era. We were all dressed in Edwardian clothes and the children were very excited to look through a range of photographs taken at Courthill dating all the way back to 1912. The children were fascinated to learn about an historic event that happened the year our school opened- the sinking of the Titanic! We wrote to future children of Courthill and made a whole school time capsule that will be opened in 40 years time, when our school celebrates the 150 year anniversary. Finally we all had a dance party in the hall to top off our celebrations. Thank you to Bear Flower Designs and the PTA for providing each child with a keyring as a special keepsake.
Remembrance Day 2022
On Friday 11th November the children learnt all about Remembrance Day. As a school we took part in the national one minute silence at 11am and the children were given their very own poppy to wear.
In preporation for Remembrance Day the children made poppies at home using a variety of materials. The children have loved watching us turn their poppies into a beautiful Courthill 'poppy field' along the front of our school to share and commemorate this special day with our community.
Harvest Festival 2022
A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our Harvest Festival before half term.
The children attended a Harvest assembly hosted by Poole Food Bank to learn more about how this service distributes food donations to families in need locally and the positive impact this makes. As part of the assembly, the children also each performed a year group Harvest song that they sung together beautifully.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your donations. Poole Food Bank were thrilled with everyone's generosity and also send their thanks for your kind donations.
Harvest Festival 2021
