Headteacher’s Comments

The Year 3 children had a successful trip to the Abbey Church last week and the Year 4 children had a successful trip to the London Museum this week.  Trip and visits play an important part in enriching the curriculum for our children.  It gives the children first hand experiences, which will help them with their learning.


Well done to Jack Kingham, Paige Rood (Mrs Kaleel’s Class), Myreon Keane, Ben Rowe, Lewis Frith, Kyra Ali (Mrs Haslehurst’s Class), Mia Opinel, Kaylee Kilcullen, Jacob Sliz (Miss Biggs’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.


Well done to Miss Bektas’s Class who had the best attendance last week with 100%.
