Creative Heroes 2018

As a School, we are embarking on a journey to achieve the 'Artsmark Award'.  This is to recognise the range of art experiences that we offer the children.

We held a Mufti Day to fundraise and help promote arts for all.  The total amount raised was £219.00, of which half goes back into the School and half to the central 'Mighty Creatives' pot, the idea being that it helps fund bigger projects to promote arts.  A very big thank you to everyone who donated.

Home Grown and Raised

The eggs from Home Grown and Raised arrived on Monday 26th February 2018.

They provided an amazing educational opportunity for the children to learn about life cycles, before returning to the farm to be raised in a caring environment.

We can also report, our chicks that hatched from the previous incubation experience are still happily clucking around Mrs. Harris' garden and are being very well looked after.


South End Infant School visits Rushden Library

Over the past few weeks, all of the year groups from South End Infant School have had the opportunity to visit our local Library.

We all felt incredibly proud of the children who attended when Rushden Library kindly posted a public thank you to our "Lovely students" and stated that they were welcome back anytime.

Thank you Rushden Library and well done to our amazing students.

The opening of the Exploration Station - November 2017

Everyone in Reception was extremely excited when the Exploration Station opened in November. The Exploration Station is an outdoor learning space based in the Reception playground that was paid for by funds raised by FOSEIS.  Supporting us also in the groundworks were Kier Construction, The Prince’s Trust and Wickes.

The Reception children sang some beautiful songs they had written about nature and the outside, before the ribbon was cut and the Exploration Station was officially declared open! This is a great example of how important the funds that you help to raise benefited not only for current pupils but also for the children of the future, adding to their whole school experience. A big thank you from us to you.

Russian Dancing

We all enjoyed the visit from the Cossack dancers. This was a fantastic activity with the children taking part in Cossack Dancing. We had authentic Russian dancers who demonstrated their dancing and instructed the children. The children also did further research on Russia.
