Sports Day 2018

On the 18th June 2018 Stoke Park School held a whole school sports day. The event was blessed with some sunshine and warm weather for the day. In the morning, Reception and KS1 took part in running, egg and spoon, fancy dress and skipping races. In the afternoon, the whole school spectated whilst KS2 competed in the same races as well as the baton race on the athletics track.

It was fantastic to see boys and girls of all ages competing with determination. There were smiles and cheers all around and the children demonstrated excellent behaviour and attitude through the whole day.

Well done to all the children for a great day and congratulations to overall winners -The Green Team!

Flying start in Dragonfly class

Reception children have had a fantastic start to school life! They have settled in brilliantly to school routines and have been busy having fun with their learning. The children voted to change our class story from Owl Babies to Hedgehog Babies so we made hedgehogs out of salt dough and made hedgehog bread!   We hope you like the pictures.

Keys to Success Assembly – Kalpna Woolf

On Friday, we had the pleasure to introduce the KS2 children to the inspirational and talented Kalpna Woolf. The children were inspired by her role as the Head of Production for BBC Bristol. She then talked about her most recent projects such as the creation of Bristol Food Connections, 91 Ways To Build A Global City to help bring communities together as well as her book ‘Spice Yourself Slim’. Thank you so much for visiting us!

Calling all photographers!

Calling all photographers!

Living Streets (the charity who promote us travelling actively to school) have created a Bristol-wide competition during this particularly cold spell!

They would like the children at Stoke Park to take a photograph of something they see on their walk to school that they wouldn’t have spotted if they had gone by car. All entries should be accompanied by a short  statement telling us why you love walking to school (no more than 50 words).

The top 9 photographs chosen within Bristol will win an unlimited family ticked to SS Great Britain (which lasts for a year!)

All entries should be handed to Miss Meek by Friday 3rd February!

*Please ensure that no children feature in the photographs for consent reasons as these entries will be posted to Living Streets.


Strictly Maths Awards!


Today we celebrated the completion of the Strictly Maths Challenges in a whole school assembly and Councillor Girl Kirk from the local community came in to join us. She commented, ‘I am so proud of you all for having such enthusiasm for maths’, as well as speaking to the children about how maths is vital for their life in the future.

During the assembly, the children eagerly guessed the number of Strictly Maths Challenges that had been returned and were thrilled to find out that 90 children from Year 1 to 6 had achieved this, beating our previous total of 82! This soon increased to a staggering 92 booklets with two last-minute entries from Belinda and Melinda! A special mention should also be given to the enthusiastic mathematicians in Oak Class who brought back 78% of their booklets and for the children shown above who were selected as the ‘Mathematician of the Class’.

Once again we would like to send a big thank you to the parents who continue to support their children with learning at home, as well as those who attended today’s assembly!






Going the distance!

A huge congratulations to an enthusiastic group of Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children who travelled to St Bede’s to compete in a Cross Country event this evening. Despite there being approximately 70-80 children per race, each and every one of them persevered and encouraged each other to complete it to the best of their ability. A special mention to one of our Year 5 pupils who came a fantastic third place, earning them entry to represent North Bristol in the finals on Sunday 20th November! A big well done to all who participated! Go Stoke Park!

What a Wild Place!

Beech and Elm class have just come back from a very exciting but ever-so-tiring school trip to the Wild Place!  We had a peek at some really interesting animals including Okapi from middle Africa and reindeer, we got up close and personal with a variety of different lemar’s and we got lost in the butterfly maze!

We also all met Kelly and Tanya some volunteers at the Wild Place.  We learnt about plants and how they’re so important to helping us stay alive by generating the oxygen we need to breath. We even got to look closely at their different parts under a microscope.  Then, we planted our own seeds, I wonder if you chose Barley or wheat as your plant?  Lots of water, sunlight and nutritious soil and we’ll just have to wait and see.

Overall it was a really fun filled and informative day.  Special thanks to all the parents who came on the trip with us, we really appreciate your help!

The Oscars had better watch out!

Oak Class have been producing and starring in their own fantastic iMovie trailers. They’ve created their own mysterious stories based on ‘The Giant’s Necklace’ by Michael Morpurgo. They had a great time filming and there was even a stunt-double! See if you can spot them. Finally, they made popcorn boxes to hold their treats so that they could premier their trailers in style! 5 stars!

We found Peter Pan!

Today Year 1 had a Peter Pan drama workshop. We even met Peter Pan and Captain Hook. We helped to find the treasure that Captain Hook had stolen. We all had so much fun and all joined in with the drama activities.
