The library are running a Winter Mini Challenge for ages 4-11. This will run from Tuesday 1st December – Friday 19th February. This year the theme is ‘Everyone is a hero’. It will operate the same as the Summer Reading Challenge. To take part simply read any books (including eBooks and audiobooks), then rate and review them at www.wintermini.org.uk. You can get special rewards including a certificate and a badge! Good luck and happy reading!!
The Importance of Bedtime Reading for Children – this website has lots of suggested books and tips to make bedtime reading engaging.
We still support the NHS and all key workers!
Year One and Two created some bunting for The Oaks care home. This was part of the Hearts for Homes initiative to encourage young people to contact care homes and send their residents positive messages. Our Y1 and Y2 school council members delivered the bunting. It was a really moving experience all the residents were so pleased to see us and were waving from the windows.
We commemorated November 11th with some poppy artwork for remembrance.
We have all settled in to our new classes and have been having lots of fun with our learning this term! Our space topic has been really interesting! We have written to Santa. We are waiting for a reply! We even managed to zoom with Year One and Reception to say Merry Christmas!
2BR have had a fantastic time this term at forest school. They have made medallions, dens, magic wands and been on treasure hunts. They ended their 6 weeks with a camp fire and toasted marshmallows. 2C and 2M will also have forest school later in the year!

We would love you to join this community and stay connected with Engayne. Were you a pupil at Engayne? Or do you know someone who was?
We need people from a range of careers and pathways to open our pupils’ eyes to what’s possible in the future and help to enhance school life. You could support us in many ways – as role models, assembly speakers, fundraisers, classroom volunteers, governors and more. There is no obligation to do anything after you’ve signed up but you’ll receive a few updates to let you know what we’re up to.
If you would like to stay involved in supporting our school, sign up as a ‘friend’ here (or, if you happen to be a former pupil yourself select that option): https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/signup/engayneprimary
