Return to school

It was lovely to see everyone this morning and I had a lovely morning spending time with Prep 8, who were all on great form. Theme week is such a good time to spend with our forms carrying out various tasks and generally enjoying spending time with them. It is a week when we can learn new skills and cover new ideas as well. I hope everyone enjoys the week and that you are able to join us for some time on Saturday at Open Morning to look at the displays and the exhibition of Theme Week work. All the children should be here for 8.45am on Saturday ready to take part in the planned activities all centred around the Queen’s 90th Birthday. Parent and visitors will also be able to enjoy the W.I café manned by Prep 8 who are studying the 100 history of the W.I this week.

Well done to our Lego Robotics team who took part in the National Finals on Sunday. They came a very respectable 9th out of 44 teams, thus making them 9th overall out of the original 500+ teams who entered the competition. I think that for our first effort in this competition we have done brilliantly and I am very proud of the boys and Mr Parkin. I would also like to thank Mr Ian Bailey for all his support and assistance with the team. Well done Pablo, Bilol, Joseph, Harry, Laurence and Saul.

If you haven’t seen the developments with the Performing Arts Centre I am delighted to report that there is now a roof and it is beginning to really take shape.
