Autumn 2023

Christmas party and Santa Surprise!

Children at Galley Common infant school have had a wonderful Christmas Party and a special guest stopped by to surprise the children and give them a present!!

Remembrance Day 2023

Children made poppies for the local church.  Children from KS1 walked up to the church to listen to the service and hold a two-minute silence by the cenotaph.  Teachers read the names of the local people that lost their lives in WW2.  Children then placed their poppies to remember soldiers who have fought for our country.


Online Safety workshop

Parents were invited into school to attend a cyber crime safe workshop ran by Joe Patterson for Warwickshire County Council.  They then had a presentation from Mrs Moynihan about what we do in school on Online Safety.  The e-safety team then said some words to the parents reminding them how to stay safe online.  Finally, the parents were able to use some of the apps and equipment we use in school with their child.  

KS1 School Disco!

Children enjoyed the first disco of the year.  They had a fabulous time with their friends with lots of dancing and fun and games.  Thank you to Mr Price for being out DJ!

Music morning in school

Today the children and staff were treated to a visit from Second City Brass Quintet, who performed a concert for us. The music was amazing, the brass instruments were shiny and melodic and everyone had fun listening to their performance of many Disney songs.  The school would like to thank Second City Brass for coming to entertain us, to teach us about the brass instruments and for letting us know how much fun it is to learn to play a musical instrument.
