What’s been happening this week?

On Thursday, we took part in World Book day and what a great day it was! Thank you for providing costumes as the children looked amazing and they all knew which character they had come dressed as. Staff looked fabulous too! There was a selection of activities which they took part in with other children from their house team based around a book. As always, there were so many positive comments about the way our older children looked after the younger ones.


Thank you to the PTA for organising the fabulous ‘Golden Ticket’ event! There was great excitement around the school and we have awarded prizes to three winners today. Congratulations to the winners so far:

One4all voucher – Arnie

Head for the Day – Hugo

Flip Out tickets – James

The PTA also arranged the Mothers’ Day shop where the children really enjoy selecting gifts. Thank you to the PTA for giving up a lot of time to sort this out.


As part of International Women’s Day and Barclays Girls’ Football day, we enjoyed coming in sporty clothes. Our girls enjoyed some great football matches at lunchtime today too.

Well done to our superstars this week!
