This is the second Year that our school has taken children to our capital city. Our brilliant children showed once again their independence and fantastic team spirit as they visited some of London’s most famous landmarks. Although they were away for only one night, they packed in activities and sightseeing into a whirlwind tour of our country’s largest city. The group ventured down to the capital city by train where they enjoyed front row seats at Matilda, a trip on a river bus, an earthquake simulator experience in the National History museum and a visit to Buckingham Palace!

They also witnessed magic at Hamley’s toy shop, had to be silent during live business questions in the Houses of Parliament and took a trip to 1918 in a 360 video experience to learn about the history of votes for women. They ended the trip with a magical afternoon at the Science museum, trying out every experiment going – even getting chance to slide down a slide made of grass! Our thanks go to the staff , particularly Sara Koratzitis, who made the
trip possible and for their hard work organising all the events.

School Council

Time has come, after a very busy year, for new school councillors to be elected and votes took place in all classes this week. Our school councillors play a very important part in our school and are consulted on a range of topics ranging from school dinners to staff appointments!

Allison Morton works tirelessly to arrange meetings and involve the children as much as possible in school decision making and this year her elected elite are as follows:

Year 1 — Francesca and Ryan W
Year 2 — Eeva and Kevin
Year 3 — Isabelle and Ben
Year 4 — Tallula and Finley B
Year 5 — Leah and Jack
Year 6 — Ellie and Mitchell

2.30 pm finish in transition weeks

A big well done to all our children in their new year groups. Children are settling well into their new classrooms having met the staff who will lead and inspire them next year.

Classes have been working hard on a variety of activities based around our transition theme of ‘Into the Blue’. All children will have an opportunity to show case what they have learned to other classes next Tuesday at the end of our outdoor activity day. There will be planned activities (making dough sea creatures, following treasure maps and shaving foam printing to name but a few) for children to access throughout the morning. After a picnic lunch, it will be time to share learning with each other. So we are looking forward to lots of songs, dances and drama in the sunshine! Please make sure sun screen is applied and children have hats in school as they will be outside for longer than usual.

Water bottle lids

New lids are available to be purchased from the office at a cost of 70p.

Lost jewellery

We have a small collection of jewellery that has been lost in school during the year. If you think you have something missing please come to the school office to reclaim it.

Lost property

All lost property will be displayed outside (weather permitting) next week. Please call by and check for all those missing sweatshirts and PE shoes!

Mobile phones

Please can we remind parents that they should not be using their phones within the school grounds. This is to ensure the safeguarding of our children. Thank you for your cooperation.
