Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

This week, in anticipation of Science Week, the children celebrated all things scientific welcoming guests from the Science Museum who presented a wonderful Bubble Assembly to the whole school and then worked with different year groups to stimulate scientific enquiry throughout the day.

We have loved having the chicks with us and this has led to some wonderful work throughout the school encouraging children to learn about the life cycle of a hen thereby improving their speaking and listening skills as well as their writing confidence. The chicks have also reinforced the value of caring for others so that pupils from Y6 to Nursery have been reminded of the importance of looking after or nurturing others, practising communication skills and being gentle with one another.

Our Y3 and Y4 footballers, joined also by a Y2 pupil, participated in a Football Skills Taster this week at Paddington Recreation Ground with 13 other local schools. They not only practised and perfected their football skills but also played 3 matches, winning 1 and drawing 2.

Monday 6th May is a Bank Holiday but we will be open for business once again on Tuesday 7th May.

May God bless you and keep you and your family safe.

Dr Ninette Fernandes-Viana
Acting Headteacher
