The Pyjama Party

At the end of the school day there was an absence of parents collecting their children. School had finished but the day wasn’t over for the children. The school day had come to a close but the fun wasn’t over just yet. The children all changed in to their PJ’s and then entered the hall/chill out zone.

At St Giles School we pride ourselves and how well we look after each other and the juniors made sure the younger children were happy and comfortable. The children then had a hot dog, with all the trimmings if they wanted them, a drink and when they had finished that settled down with a cone of popcorn. As the daylight faded the atmosphere ch

Forest Craft gives our children freedom, time and space to thrive in the great outdoors. So what do we

Code Club is back!

Why learn to Code? Code Club is back for KS2 and we’re ready to go! We are very excited. So far we have had about 26 children showing an interest in coming to Code Club. This year it has been offered to all of the Juniors. About Code Club Our aim is to inspire the next generation to get excited about computer science and digital making. At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. Code Club is run by a volunteer who organises a free coding club for the children at St Giles to build and share their ideas, while they learn along the way. The projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children l
