It has been a short week with lots of learning going on. Year 3 attended a multi-skills festival and did some archery and golf. Despite arriving to the venue late, after a short stop at Alveley Primary school, they showed great determination and team work.

We welcomed Hanro Swanepoel, the coach from Worfield Cricket club, who did some sessions with Green and Yellow class. Worfield are funding the sessions so that more children have the opportunity to access some expert cricket coaching and enjoy the fun sessions.

Some of the Year 6’s enjoyed their maths booster breakfast today! Thanks Mrs Benson – it looked delicious!

Well done Yellow class who took part in the RSPB campaign. We try to encourage our children to be Courageous Advocates – champions for change and that’s exactly what Yellow class did. They hung bird feeders around the playground and made some bug hotels to encourage more wildlife into our school. They received ‘thank you’ from David Attenborough.

Well done to Jacob who has given up his time to make a crisp packet blanket which will help to keep someone warm and dry. Another champion for a good cause!

This project came about from a visit to the British Ironwork Centre which is a great place to visit.

Well done to our amazing Super Stars this week. We love celebrating all the great things that have been achieved. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope you enjoy the sunshine!
