On Tuesday 2nd November, here at Grove, we held our first ever Spooky Ball. The event included a prize winning pumpkin competition, spooky decorations, fancy dress (and not just the children), treat stalls and a huge amount of fun and laughter from all.
Here at Grove we feel passionate about not only providing excellent educational opportunities for all our children, but also the chance for children to have fun, express themselves and most importantly feel like a valued member of our school community.
For our Harvest Thanksgiving Festival, our amazing Year 3 superstars presented their assembly. As part of our celebrations, we watched live lessons and completed a pizza quest which took us to visit an arable farm and we found out what crops are grown and how they … We even saw a cow calf being born live!
Our quest then took us to a cheese making farm and we saw the ins and outs of cheese making and we were all fascinated by how much salt is used in it! Once our quest was over, we spent the afternoon, making our harvest pizzas! We used different ingredients such as corn, peppers and cherry tomatoes to decorate them!

World Teacher’s Day
Wednesday 6th October 2021
This year, for World Teacher’s Day, we wanted to do something a little extra special to recognise all of the hard work and dedication that our staff put in each day at school and beyond in order to support, encourage and enrich the lives and learning of our children here at Grove.
We developed the theme of the ‘Grove Academy Awards’ whereby each teacher had their name inside a star on their very own red carpet outside of their classrooms. Plenty of glitzy decorations surrounded our main hall where we hosted an Oscars type award ceremony. Children from each class presented their teacher with their own personalised certificate and special prize to say thank you for being so amazing!
Everyone had plenty of fun guessing who the nominees might be and enjoyed drum-rolling to announce the winner. Well done to all of our superstar teachers – we hope you’ve had a nice relaxing brew on us!

MTC Parent Information Evening 2021
On Thursday 23rd September 2021, Grove Academy hosted a MTC (Multiplication Tables Check) information evening for children and parents in year 4 in preparation for the national times tables check in June 2022. At this event, children and parents listened to a short presentation from our Maths leader all about the MTC. They also learnt ways that they could practice times tables at home, and had a go at some of these activities themselves! Some of the activities that children enjoyed the most to practice their times tables were making multiplication arrays, playing times tables snap, practicing on TT Rockstars and playing dice games.
