You may have noticed our new collection of indoor plants which are sited round the school building. Thanks to a generous donation from The Westway Trust, we have been able to liven up the school with these amazing plants. We’re told that they’re specially selected for air purification so will hopefully help us all improve our wellbeing!
Congratulations to the winners of our inaugural weekly maths award, who were selected from the school to receive a certificate this morning. Each week teachers will be choosing one child from KS1, LSK2 and UKS2 respectively, who has demonstrated our school values in their maths learning. Our winners today were all very worthy and we look forward to many more in the weeks to come.
Those of you who have visited the KS2 playground will see the dramatic changes which are afoot. The old derelict caretaker’s house has been demolished and work will be beginning on our exciting new project in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled — we will update you on developments as soon as they happen!
What a lovely day! It was a rainy start, which instantly brightened as soon as our amazing pupils and parents returned to school. The children have all settled brilliantly into their new classes, getting to know their new teachers and routines. If we can all keep it up, it is going to be an incredible year!
Year Six spent the day today making music out of … well… nothing. Or that’s what it seemed to begin with. They explored the ambient sounds, noises and music which exists all around us. Using everyday objects, a bit of imagination and exploration, they pieced together a work of musical art which John Cage would be proud of! Thanks to Mr Norris for the inspiration, equipment and for putting the day together. We can’t wait to release the final version.
Year 6 got their guitars tuned and ready last week for their incredible production of School of Rock. The acting was on point, the singing went through the roof and the atmosphere was electric. Well done to them all and thanks to the staff for putting it together.
Our amazing PTA worked incredibly hard last Friday to put on a spectacular summer fair. Thanks to all parents, friends and family who attended and made it such a success. We’re very please to announce that we made just under £1000, all over which will go towards our Science project to help our children. Thanks to everyone and we are looking forward to the next!
