Well done to Ella dewing, Archie Tuck and Jamie Charalambous, (Mrs Watson’s Class), Archie Hemming, Jay Hyams and Millie-Jo Lanza (Mrs Raddon’s Class), Sophie Lewis and Cole McFadden (Miss Gibbs’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.

Year 6 Sex Education (3 June/ 4 June)

The school nurse will be speaking with the Year 6 children about growing/changes in their bodies and relationships on Tuesday 4 June.  If any parents would like to find out more about what will be discussed or to ask questions, the school nurse is available at 2:30pm on Monday 3 June in the school.

National Sports Week (24-28 June)

During the week beginning 24 June, it is National Sports week.  Miss Gibbs is trying to organise sports coaches to come in during one afternoon that week so that the children can experience as many different sports as possible.


If you are a sports coach or know of someone who is and are available during that week to come in and teach and train the children, please return the slip at the bottom of the page.

Local Play Areas

Play is a really important thing for children to be able to do and having a safe place to play is equally as important.  Mrs Schooling is campaigning to get the facilities at Town Mead replaced.  She has launched a petition.  You can sign it by following the link here or by visiting her outside Tescos this Sunday between 11am and 5pm.
