A busy day…

There was lots of excitement outside of my office to day as the children lined up to go off on a visit.  Two year groups are out today and they are visiting the zoo and Harley Gallery.  The children will have an amazing time and I am looking forward to hearing about their adventures when they get back later.

Our boy’s football team have started their season and they were thrilled to beat Redlands school 3-1 in their first game.  Mr Scott and Mr Bellingham were really pleased with the way the boys played and it promises to be a very exciting season.  I am looking forward to seeing the girls start their season as I know that Emily will be smashing goals in again. She is a great talent and is one of the most talented girls in the school.

We are currently rehearsing for our school production of Scrooge and their is a real buzz about this around school.  It promises to be a very successful term and we are celebrating being in the top 1% of schools for progress from key stage one to the end of key stage two.  We are really proud of the efforts of our pupils and we are looking forward to working as hard as possible in this, our “Year of Endeavour”

Watch this space for more news this term.

A new term approaches…

It is not long now until we are back in school and it is looking great as the staff prepare classrooms for the arrival of the children.  Some changes have taken place over the summer, including the arrival of our new classrooms.  There has been a great deal of effort put in making sure they will be ready for the start of term. Here is a glimpse of the new classrooms from outside.

Our theme this year is “A year of Endeavour.”  This will place responsibility on us to ensure that we all work as hard as we can to reach our full potential.  This theme will be seen in everything we do in our lives, not just at school.  I am looking forward to hearing your inspirational stories about what you achieve and also what you do to serve and help others.

Mr Scott deserves a mention for performing so well in his maths and English exams and we are very proud of him.  If you see him in school please congratulate him as I know he will appreciate it.  He has worked so hard to achieve so well in the tests.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays and make sure you are raring to go!
