A Nice Day for a White Wedding…!
During the learning experience week the focus was ‘weddings through the years’ in timely connection with the Royal Wedding of Harry & Meghan last Saturday. Today, pupils came to school in their wedding attire and held a wedding ceremony at ChristChurch!
…. and finally a wedding reception, where each year group performed a song that had been learning during the week. We were also treated to a performance from Global Rock and Yr6 sang and danced to ‘Marry You’. A lovely day was had by all!
Well done to our Yr6 children for completing their SATs this week. A superb effort by all. Staff were very impressed with their motivation and perseverance. A big thank you to parents/carers for supporting your child at home with additional homework and preparation. The children will have a well deserved bowling and beach trip. A big thank you to staff who went the extra mile to allow the children to ‘Believe, Inspire and Excel’ this week.
The SATs breakfast club got through over 200 slices of toast, 10 boxes of cereal, 32 pints of milk, 100 yogurts and endless jugs of juice!!
Some pupil comments…. “Everyone has tried their best and we are looking forward to our bowling and beach trip tomorrow”….”It was epic! every child should like SATs..it’s amazing!”…”Breakfast club was useful as it helped me to calm down”….”The teachers helped us not to worry too much”..

Some wonderful creations from the children

Sports Relief Day
Our amazing children taking part in running one mile for Sports Relief! Well done everyone!
On Tuesday our u9 football team continued their unbeaten league run winning 5-0 away to Broadlea in the league semi final.
The whole squad played their part in a superb team performance. The team has been training very hard on improving aspects of their game and on Tuesday it all came together. A hat-trick from George Heathfield, One from Charlie Rolfe and a super team goal and finish from George Parker Thomas was enough to reach the final.
World Book Day
What an amazing World Book Day! It was lovely to see so many children dressed up as a variety of different book characters and talk to their classes about who they were! We were all treated to a parade in the hall so that we could see each other’s costumes and creations, with excellent ideas from both children and staff. All of the children were then all shown the same book in their classes, a beautiful picture book called ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker, and have created some wonderful art displays and pieces of descriptive writing inspired by the text. Parents will soon have an opportunity to come into school and see the final product of the children’s hard work.
Well done, everyone!
