Stars of the Week!

Upper Prep pupils were our stars this week. The following people were all praised for their achievements this term:

Matilda (6P): For listening carefully in maths lessons, working methodically and completing morning work with greater accuracy.

Cameron (5F): For growing in confidence, particularly in mental maths lessons. Lovely use of personification in a poem that was read aloud in assembly.

Sophia (3S): For being very organised and for working hard on English comprehension tasks. Great perseverance!

Tiana (5F): For looking after new children in Year 5 with such care and kindness.

Caitlin (6P): For outstanding effort when singing during assemblies.

Congratulations to all our stars!

Bonfire Night Notice


Due to adverse weather predicted for Friday, we are postponing our Bonfire Night celebration until next Friday 16th November. We regret to have had to make this decision, but unfortunately 21mph winds wouldn’t make our bonfire very safe!

We hope you are still able to make our celebration, and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding!
