This week we have had a series of Tour de France activities taking place
in school with baking
and making as well as
research by the older children. Nursery, in particular, had a fabulous time taking part in our mini Tour de France morning. The children raced against each other on their bikes in a knock out tournament leading to a grand final. Congratulations to Harvey Robinson our winner, Max Okezie who came second and Ezrah Wooding who was third. !
Sunday is the big day and we hope all the children will get some chance to be part of this once in a lifetime event
In respect for those affected by the terror attacks in Paris we have led an assembly that focuses on kindness and helping one another. We observed a minute’s silence and will speak to children if they feel worried or upset about the attacks.
As we are marching through the Autumn term we continue to move forward with the children learning at a fast pace. Improvements are being made across the school with a vibrant and positivie attitude.
A big thank you to all the parents for their positvie feedback at the first parents evening of the year. Your views are very important as we continue to improve the school.

Wednesday 11th November 2015
18 of our year 5/6 children went to Brooksbank to participate in an athletics competition between six other primary schools. They did track and field events like obstacle relay, chest pushes, long and triple jump as well as team relays. We are very proud of the superb efforts and high standard that everyone put in to what was a very tough competition.
The children have learnt all about Remembrance Day and have heard a lot of stories of incredible bravery and kindness in assembly and class. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the whole school held a two minutes silence. We were very proud of how respectful they all were.
