Frimley Learner Passports
At Frimley, we have 8 Frimley Learner attributes which we believe are important life and learning skills.
The children each have a Frimley Learner Passport to complete when they feel they have demonstrated one of our attributes. When they have completed all 8 they become an ULTIMATE FRIMLEY LEARNER!
Our Frimley passports are a way of showing how we have achieved our school values.
On each page we have a different value and a set of challenges to try and complete. Each year must try and complete a certain amount of them (yr3 is 3, yr4 is 4, etc). These include things like, ‘use resources independently’ from the value ‘learning together and independently’.
Once you have completed the correct amount, you can take the passport home and write about how you have demonstrated the value there. Then, you bring it back to school, signed, and put it on Mrs Wright’s desk. After that, you will be announced in assembly and will receive a certificate. Once you have all the certificates you will be awarded with an Ultimate Frimley Learner badge to wear on your uniform.

We were very excited to hold our first ever sponsored Biathlon event. The event took place from Monday 2nd July to Thursday 5th July with each year group participating during their timetabled PPA afternoon.
On each afternoon of their event, the children participated in a 200m swim during their usual swimming slot and a timed run- 1km for years 3 and 4 and 1.3km for years 5 and 6. Every child received an individual time for their swim and run and a combined time for both. All participants received a certificate and a range of medals was awarded recognising performance and effort across each year group. Our children are fantastic at pushing themselves to achieve their best and the event was the ideal opportunity for this. Furthermore, children will be able to use their time this year as a personal challenge to beat in the future thus providing the perfect platform for children to demonstrate the perseverance and determination needed to achieve their best.
We are incredibly fortunate to have the fantastic facilities we do at Frimley and all sponsorship money raised will go towards the ongoing maintenance of our swimming pool.
For recognised effort: Year 3 Riley and Rebecca, Year 4 Alfie G and Isabelle C, Year 5 Daniel and Isabelle, Year 6 TBA
3rd place: Year 3 Jayden and Lola, Year 4 James and Annika, Year 5 Samuel and Emma, Year 6 TBA
2nd place: Year 3 Alfie and Abeesha, Year 4 Charlie and Mia, Year 5 Fraser and Kate, Year 6 TBA
1st place: Year 3 Jeremy and Mollie, Year 4 Ewan and Freya, Year 5 Nathan and Jessica, Year 6 TBA
Frimley Fun day and Sports Day
Frimley had an amazing day on Friday as we held our Fun Day in the morning and moved onto Sports Day after break. It was a very, very hot day but the children kept their enthusiasm, motivation and team spirit to make this a tense, action packed sports day!
First the children set up stalls to raise money for our school PTA in our Summer Fair. All the stalls were designed by the children, set up by the children and run by the children.
After break we moved on to sports day. This was organised by the Sports Crew children (with some help from Miss Neighbour and Mr Phillips). They made it a very smooth, enjoyable day. In between races the children had the chance to relax in the shade and have a long drink, I think this was the hottest sports day we’ve ever had!
A huge well done for Argo for winning sports day this year. Another wall done for the rest of the school for raising over £300 for our school PTA.
The Greatest Show ever!
To celebrate out 150th birthday, Frimley set themselves the challenge to put on The Greatest Show – and wow, they certainly did put on a show so great that local houses were phoning us up to tell us how they were enjoying our show and singing from their gardens. Frimley wanted to do something memorable so the children an staff, led by our creative Mrs Curtis practiced and rehearsed until a show was formed. It was an amazing atmosphere as families and friends came onto our field to watch us and cheer us on. It was definitely a day to remember.
In July, Frimley celebrated being open for 150 years. To celebrate we invited teachers and pupils who used to go to Frimley to come and look around, to share how it has changed and to look through our memorabilia with happy memories. There were even a few reunions from old friends.
We have 2 new Frimley Learners – the first in Year 3 and Year 4! They have completed their Frimley Learner Passports to demonstrate that they understands and can show each of the 8 attributes both in school and at home.
Well Done Abeesha and Mia
Our value this half term is honesty. How can you show this value in school? Will you get star of the week this term for demonstrating a good understanding of our value?
SIMMS Science on Show at St Mary’s University On Tuesday 12th June, nine of our Super Scientists from the Science Club took their projects to a com-petition which aims to celebrate ‘mastery of science’ in schools. They had worked on their own ideas for a science project in the school club and had to produce a model with supporting information for the competition. During the day they had opportunities to use their engineering skills to build spaghetti towers, watch a science demonstration on liquid nitrogen and participate in other activities such as trying sustaina-ble insect snacks! Yes, Mrs Phillips did eat one! At judging time they used their communication skills to explain and justify their science projects to a series of judges that included members of scientific institutions. They also enjoyed seeing the other school projects and the huge variety of science ideas on display. Mrs Phillips was very proud when we won the Best in Year 4 prize, the Best in Year 5 prize and then the Best Overall in Show prize! Well done to all of my budding scientists: James, Mollie, Sanjana, Josh-ua, Mia, Emily, Anya, Oliver and James! The judges were particularly impressed with the fact that the children could all talk about the science behind their projects and why they had chosen these pro-jects. The first place winners, James and Oliver also impressed them by showing the improvements in designs they had made in their attempts to make a model demonstrating Black Holes. Another trophy for Frimley Church of England Junior School!
Surrey Arts 2018 Primary Music Festival
On Tuesday 12th June the Frimley choir took part in the music festival at the Princes Hall in Aldershot. Everyone sang really well, they were performing songs telling stories of Vikings, the songs were from Go Lightning Vikings. In the mid-dle of the performance we listened to The Surrey Youth Training Choir, two members of our choir also performed In this, Cristyn and Anya. In the concert we were joined by other Junior Schools in the area. To conclude, the evening was a success and everyone enjoyed it. We’d like to thank Mrs Milton and Mrs Wolff for all their help and support with the choir. Cristyn Pirie
Last week saw some children from Years 5 and 6 representing the school in Quadkids Ath-letics at Aldershot Military Stadium. The children all participated in a sprint, longer distance run, throwing and standing long jump events and really did Frimley proud. As a team, we came 4th overall, with some fantastic individual results too. The children demonstrated fan-tastic sportsmanship and support of each other. A special mention must go to Harry in 6H for achieving 2nd place in the individual results and for helping to support his team mates on the day. Also well done to Megan in 6N who ran two 600m races and won one of them! Well done to all! We also took part in the PhysiFun Festival at Mytchett Primary School, in which children from all year groups took part in competitive games and activities designed to boost fitness levels and develop an enjoyment of being active. The children had a great time and should also be very proud of themselves.
What an amazing start to our new half term, we came back to the wonderful news that Frimley had won another GOLD in the Wisley Budding Gardeners competition. We also won the Best in show Green award for the most ecological and sustainable garden, so we are super chuffed. Well done to Mrs Everett and her team (Grace, Ruby, Lucy, Isabelle, Emily, Charlotte, Jaz, Ava and Kimi) for their dedication and hard work.
The garden has been rebuilt in front of the water park/behind the gym if you would like to take a look at our winning garden.

We are loving our outdoor gym. On Friday, it’s opening day, we all had a chance to try it out, even the staff! It will be timetabled at lunch times and break times so each class will get a fair turn.
Lunch rota; Monday Year 6, Tuesday Year 5, Wednesday Year 4, Thursday Year 3.
Please take note of the safety signs; The equipment is to be used within school hours and supervised by school staff, they are not to be used before or after school.
Well done Anya for becoming our newest Frimley Learner. She has completed her Frimley Learner Passport to demonstrate that she understands and can show each of the 8 attributes both in school and at home.
Stained Glass Window
On Wednesday the 2nd of May, Jane Starnes, an ex-Frimley teacher, came in to talk to us about the stained glass window that is found in our hall. We found out lots of interesting facts about our school, which are represented in the window, that we didn’t know before. Here are just a few:
- In 2000 the children each came up with their own designs for the window; the creator incorporated all of them into one design that best represented our church school
- To pay for the cost of the window the school charged £5 to “own” a piece of glass.
- The window has a lot of “hidden” pictures in it like a football, children playing netball, an insect, hidden words etc
- The music notes at the top represent the first line of the old school hymn
- It was originally going to be positioned opposite the office, but Joe (its creator) said it would look better in the hall where the light reflects through the glass bringing it to life.
The window is an amazing piece of art and we are very lucky to have it in our hall. Have a closer look the next time you are in the Hall to see what you can find. By Caitlin and James 5R
A message from the staff here at Frimley to the Year 6 children. Mrs Wright made up the words to our song which hopefully will show our children that we are proud of them and their individual talents and achievements. Tests don’t measure everything. Be proud of yourselves!

Our value this half term is Love. How can you show this value in school? Will you get star of the week this term for demonstrating a good understanding of our value?
Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust
Mr Colin Wilson from the Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust talked to the children about the different birds that they might see in their gardens and locally. He talked about how important is to leave hedging and trees in boundaries as places of shelter and food for them, and to provide bird food and water for them all year round.
This talk was a follow up to the bird and bat boxes that have been placed in the school grounds recently by the trust. We now have six swift boxes, four on the chapel, two on each side and two on the school house facing the carpark We also have six nesting boxes and six bat boxes in the woods on the bottom field.
To encourage the birds into our gardens we have bird feeders and water in the garden. This summer we will have a wildlife pond. A wildflower meadow has been planted as a source of food. The vegetable gardens have recently been planted with seeds and will soon be encouraging insects into the gardens. Our native tree saplings are growing stronger each year and more native hedging will be planted at the end of the year providing extra safety and food.
Our nesting boxes with cameras are showing residency by Blue Tits.

As part of our Collaboration Value this half term each, house group has produced an amazing display to share what collaboration means to them.
Easter Art Competition
Frimley held its annual Easter art competition and once again it was a challenge to choose the winners. Every single piece of art held amazing detail and every artist took their time to draw or paint a master piece. Miss Venn loved the fact that this year there was a huge range of art media being used and some very creative ideas. It’s a shame we couldn’t display them all.
Our winners and runners-up were…
A huge well done to all the children who took part in our Spring concert. Wow! We have a lot of talent here at Frimley. We heard beautiful singing as well has hearing music from children playing the harp, piano, keyboard, guitar and clarinet.
A huge thank you to Mrs Wolff and Mrs Milton for all the time and effort you put into this to make our Spring concert possible.
Monday 19th March and Friday 23rd March.
At Frimley, we were all really excited to have taken part in Sport Relief 2018! As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise money and change lives. To do our bit and to raise money we:
- held a ‘Just Dance’ session every break time
- took on Olympic diver Tom Daley’s ‘Daley challenge’
- completed in year group dodgeball tournaments every lunch time
- sold Sport Relief wristbands for £1 each.
On the Friday we had a sports themed non-uniform day. In the morning every class took part in the ‘Frimley Fitness Marathon’ (there were many aching legs the next day after all those squats, lunges and burpees!). We also ran a Frimley Family Mile in the afternoon with many family members joining us in our mile run around the school grounds.
Spring Magic Art Exhibition
Frimley produced some fantastic art work for an art exhibition run by Surrey Heath Primary Schools. It was presented at St Peter’s Church Hall and I’m sure you will agree, Frimley children have once again made us a very proud school.
SMARTY mouse was designed by the children here at Frimley a few years ago to promote online safety and to help children to make ‘smart’ and safe decisions online. As he was a few year old, we digitally recreated him and placed him round every school computer to help him to stand out to remind our children of their SMART rules. Our new mouse mats were shared in assembly today; Can your child tell you about SMARTY mouse and how they can keep safe online?
We held a Values Day to help us to have a clearer understanding of Collaboration. What does it mean? How can we collaborate in all areas of our lives? What does collaboration look like?
Read our newsletters below to find out about our values day
World Book Day
On Tuesday 6th March 2018, Frimley celebrated World Book Day by coming into school dresses as their favourite book character. We had an amazing range of creative costumes and the whole school looked fantastic.
Tuesday 6th March 2018 – Bird house making
Kindly, Bernard from the Blackwater Valley Conservation Trust came into school to help the children from Mrs Everett’s Gardening Club and the Environmental Council team, make 12 bird houses for Swallows to nest in. He helped us use hammers, screws, electric drills and nails to put together the boxes. They will be hung around the bottom field and we will keep a close eye on them watching out for any visitors we have. Did you know that we also have 4 boxes under the eaves of the staff house and chapel? Colin, who is also from the Trust, put the boxes up in February. Just before Easter, they will both return to place some bat boxes in the wooded area behind the bottom field. We had a lot of fun collaborating with different people from different year groups. Thank you to Mrs Hammond and Mrs Everett for organising this for us and the Conservation Trust for helping us be a part of this exciting project.
Chloe Year 6
Our value this half term is collaboration. How can you show this value in school? Will you get star of the week this term for demonstrating a good understanding of our value?

On Friday, Frimley held a spellathon to support our charity, Sebastian’s Action Trust. The children had an amazing launch to the spellathon with an assembly held by Mr Callow and Mrs Peters. We had 2 teams, teachers vs children, they were put on the spot to spell a word from the year 5/6 spelling grid. The children were amazing, they knew their spellings, kept their cool and beat the teachers 6-4!!! Well done to Joe, Tomas, Amelia, Zachary, Mia and Harry for stepping up and showing us how amazing the children at Frimley are.
On Thursday, our librarians were very brave and ran an assembly for the whole school. They reminded us of they different genres of book we have in our library and its opening times.

Frimley Values and British Values
As we start our new, exciting term here at Frimley we thought it would be a good chance to remind you of our Frimley and British values.
Our value of the term is Responsibility. How can you show this value in school? Will you get star of the week this term for demonstrating a good understanding of our value?
We want to prepare children positively for life in modern Britain so we ensure that the Frimley and British values are introduced, discussed and lived through the ethos, values and work of our school. Our curriculum areas provide a vehicle to help children further understand these concepts, in particular our RE and PSHE&C lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these values with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.
Well done William and Olivia for becoming our first Frimley Learners of the year. They have completed their Frimley Learner Passports to demonstrate that they understand and can show each of the 8 attributes both in school and at home.

We have been in the Christmas spirit this week at Frimley. We’ve been watching Year 3 perform their play, we’ve had our Christmas fair, Christmas carols around the tree and our Christmas lunch.
Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone, we will see you back on Thursday 4th January.

Well done Frimley C of E choir, your Christmas singing was so fantastic that you made it on the radio! We all listened live on Friday morning as your song was played on BBC Surrey radio. What will it be next: The X-factor or Britain’s got Talent?
On Friday 24th November, Frimley held a special Values Day which focused on the value of ‘perseverance’. We all wore our house colours and mixed up year groups so we could meet and work with new friends.
In Endeavour (yellow house) we looked at 3 bible stories which had the value of perseverance running through them. Based on these stories we discussed the meaning and importance of being able to persevere both in and out of school. We showed our ideas through wordle poems, graffiti art and drama
Children in Need
Well done Frimley for raising money for Children in Need on Friday 17th November. The children dressed up in mufti for a donation to Children in Need.
Well Done School Council
Well done to our school council as today we received a certificate from the House of Commons! The certificate was for a Speaker’s School Council Award and was given to us ‘in recognition of the achievements of your school council project, The Chill Zone’.

Ultimate Frimley Learner
Ultimate Frimley Learner
At Frimley, we have 8 Frimley Learner attributes which we believe are important life and learning skills.
The children each have a Frimley Learner Passport to complete at school and home when they feel they have demonstrated one of our attributes. When they have completed all 8 they become an ULTIMATE FRIMLEY LEARNER!
Well done to Ava and Joe, both in 5C, for working hard this year and becoming our first ULTIMATE FRIMLEY LEARNERS.
Frimley Green Carnival – Space: The Frimley Frontier
Frimley C of E were proud and excited to be a part of the Frimley Green Carnival this year. The children, parents and staff worked hard to create an amazing float with the theme ‘Space – The Frimley Frontier’.
This is the first time in a few years we have been part of the carnival; The atmosphere and community spirit was amazing and I have a feeling we will be taking part in many future carnivals. A huge well done to Mrs Farage who organised the event and thank you to the staff, parents and of course the children for their support.
Last term was such a success that the school council decided to run another Enrichment day. The children and adults wore coloured tops to represent their house: Argo (green), Apollo (blue), Endurance (red) and Endeavour (yellow). Last term the children focused on what their house name represented. This term the school council picked the theme ‘Diversity’. Each house teacher created fun, inspiring activities to help the children share what diversity means to them and how we can celebrate the diversity we see in the world around us.
Here is a snippet of activities and photos but keep your eyes open for the next Frimley Times to hear the children’s own reports about the day.
Endeavour showed diversity through creative art, discussing jobs and creating games.
Endurance showed diversity through finger painting, how everyone has a different finger print. There was even some amazing green screen technology in the Discovery Zone.
Argo were busy creating games that not only celebrated their own skills and talents but also encouraged other skills and talents from children around them.
Apollo celebrated diversity by performing – X-factor style!
To develop and engage the children in different aspects of science, we held a ‘Science is Fantastic’ week from Mon 5th June to Friday 9th June.
The children experienced a range of scientific ideas through fun and educational activities including some outdoor learning in the science garden.
The children were asked to bring in a Science project from home so they could hold a ‘Science Expo’ where the children showed their projects to other children and to parents.
Lots of fun was had by all. There were exploding volcanoes, static balloons, models, posters, telescopes, lava lamps and lots of messy goo!
Opening of the running track
On Thursday 20th April 2017, the children and staff of Frimley Church of England School welcomed Elizabeth Duggan from Active Surrey to their school to officially open their new running track.
All children are taking part in Active Surrey’s Run the World scheme which takes them past various sporting events and finishes in Surrey for the Women’s Lacrosse World cup in July. Frimley children run, jog or walk a measured mile for 15 minutes most days using the all weather track. The miles are then logged on The Golden Mile website so that they can track their progress. Collectively schools should cover the 28,750 miles around the world over the course of the school year.
Here is a copy of the power point the children made about their day at the Surrey School Games. Surrey School Games Assembly Power Point
