Recent Events

Glebelands’ Science Challenge

 Last week, 30 of our children represented Cranleigh C of E Primary School at the annual Glebelands Science Challenge. The children worked in teams of 4 or 5 with an older child to support them.  They were given a problem solving task to build a lighthouse. Each team had £150 to purchase any materials that they needed.

 We are very proud of how well the children all did, each team worked hard to be successful and they all had good outcomes. Our Year 1 team even came first in their session.

Well done to all the teams.

Year 4 Visit to rowleys 2019

On Monday 25th November 2019, 4AB and 4LS went to Rowley's to sing some songs to the Darby and Joan Group. We sang "Count on Me", "Shine Jesus Shine", and a rap that 4AB wrote in class. We finished the performance by singing a Christmas song.

We all enjoyed this experience and the Ladies and Gentlemen were very complimentary. After the singing we went and chatted to them about our school and they told us about themselves.

Dodgeball tournament 2019

On Friday 1st February 2019, I took some Year 3 and 4's to play in a Dodgeball Tournament against other local schools. We had a Cranleigh team and made up another team with some children from Park Mead. Both teams played extremely well and our school won the values certificates (voted by other schools) which included: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork. Our 'Cran-mead' team came 2nd in their pool, so played against Park Mead for 3rd place overall. Unfortunately, they lost this game, but still managed to come 4th out of 8 teams. Our 'Cranleigh' team came 1st in their pool, so played Wonersh and Shamley Green in the final! We managed to dodge lots of shots, but in the end we lost by 1 point and came 2nd overall. We had super afternoon playing dodgeball and they all played really well!

football Match 2019

On Tuesday, 29th January,  Year 3 played a football match against Park Mead School. We worked out our positions and chose Ben to be our Captain. Alfie volunteered to be our Goalkeeper. We played so well that Alfie and our defender Jodie only touched the ball TWICE! Nicholas, Oscar, Bailey and Tola almost scored, but they had a very good goalkeeper who stopped every shot. Kevin, Bailey and Courtney were fantastic midfielders and ensured the ball stayed in our half. Throughout the match, we worked hard as a team, finding space and passing to each other to score a goal. The match finished 0-0, but we hope to win our next match.
