Swimming Gala

Congratulations to the children who represented our school at the Wickford gala on Tuesday. There were various heats during the week so we should hear very soon who has qualified for the final in May. All the children showed positivity and determination as it was the first gala many children had competed in so there were lots of nerves.
Well done everyone!

Year 5 Outdoor learning

Today year 5 enjoyed their session of Outdoor learning.  They investigated what they could find under logs after a period of wet weather.  They were amazed at the findings.

Happy New Year

We are looking forward to welcoming children back to school on Wednesday 5th January. Usual time of 8.50am, doors opening at 8.35am. Please arrive in time to enable children to settle in to class before registration at 8.50am.

Tree Planting

This week, Jack and his classmates (5KH) planted two tree saplings in our outdoor learning space at the back of the school field. We cannot wait to see how big the trees will grow by the end of summer! Jack wrote to our local council about the Plane tree being cut down for the library development and received these sapling’s in response to his letter.

Christmas Dinner Days

These last two days have been very exciting in school.  Santa came to visit lower school and we enjoyed a delicious roast dinner in the halls. A huge thank you to the lunchtime staff and, of course, Santa for dropping by!

Santa!
