Mr Lynch's Leaving Assembly

It was such a lovely assembly with the whole school together on a rare occasion. I was entertained by some lovely singing, the sharing of memories and some spectacular art work from Reception! I'm sure the children told you about the 'Glitter Prank'...I'm still finding the odd sparkle now!


The gesture of a tree to remember me by was a complete surprise and I hope to visit over years to come to see how it is doing.


I take away 17 years of very happy memories of a wonderful school and the end of my 30 year teaching career. It has been such a privilege and I hope you all continue to shine.


Signing out for the last time...

Comic Relief 'Bad Hair' Day!

Thank you for supporting this year's Comic Relief fundraising event. The children looked very different in school today! I'm just hoping that the hair chalk, spray, dye is easy to wash out for Monday...surprise


So far, Golden Valley families have raised over £300 for this worthwhile cause...but there is still time for you to donate if you haven't managed to do so (donations can be received until 31st March). 


I hope you enjoy this selection of photographs!

World Book Day 2023 - Book Cover Design Winners!

Every year during Book Week, pupils hear and see a story with a hidden front cover. They are invited to design a front cover for the book to enter a school competition. This year, Mrs Bennett selected the book 'Flooded' by Mariajo Ilustrajo for the competition.


The children's designs were judged and two or three winners were selected from each year group. They were awarded GOLD Headteacher stickers and chose a book as their prize. 

World Book Day 2023 - Character Winners! 

Congratulations to GV pupils who came to school wearing a whole variety of outfits and costumes depicting characters from books - tremendous effort everyone!


The Year Group pages contain photos of the children in each class. Two pupils from each year group were picked out by members of staff to receive a prize of a book to keep. See the photos below of the winning pupils.

World Thinking Day 2023

World Thinking Day takes place on 22nd February each year - the anniversary of the birth of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell who founded the Boy Scouts and Girl Guiding associations. To mark this annual occasion, pupils were invited to come to school wearing their special uniforms. There were around 100 Brownies, Cubs, Beavers, Rainbows, Guides and Scouts in school - a fantastic effort!

Children in Need 2022

This year's dressing up theme at school was 'Spots, Stripes or Patterns'. The children enjoyed their non-uniform day and parent donations amounted to £625.50 for this worthwhile cause. Thank you for your generosity!

Harvest 2022

Many thanks to Golden Valley families for supporting the collection of food tins, packets and jars for the local Food Bank in Nailsea. The contributions were collected by Yvonne and Chris who were amazed and very grateful for huge number of boxes we were able to give.


During our Harvest Assemblies we had a visitor, Steph, from Farmlink who spoke to the children about the work of a farm, the importance of harvest, harvest in years gone by and many other things! Finally we sang a new harvest song 'Harvest Handclap' which the children thoroughly enjoyed! 

Nailsea Carnival 2022!

The children really enjoyed participating in the Nailsea Carnival a few weeks ago. The theme was 'Books' in celebration of 25 years of World Book Day. Golden Valley came in 2nd place! Many thanks to Mrs Chandler, Mrs Jenkins and Miss Tyler for co-ordinating the school entry.


Jubilee Celebrations!

Golden Valley staff and pupils celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by dressing in red, white and blue or as a member of the Royal Family. We paired classes together (mixed ages) and the children enjoyed 'buddying up' with new friends. There were fun activities and games as well as biscuit decorating and a picnic on the field. Finally, everybody joined in with a rendition of the National Anthem.

Science Selfie Competition!

Mrs Devanny, our science subject leader, set a competition for half term for pupils to have a photo taken to demonstrate some aspect of science. We were both overwhelmed at the response, with over 130 photos being sent to school of some amazing science in action!

All of the children who took part received a certificate of recognition and one child's photograph from each year group was chosen by staff as the winner. They each received a science activity kit, a certificate and GOLD Headteacher sticker!

Pictured below are the winning photographs.
