Headteacher’s Comments

I could get used to these long weekends.  I am a bit nervous as I not sure how I will cope with having to work for the full 5 days next week!

Classes have been busy launching this term’s themes.  Year 3 are starting their topic on the Olympic Games, Year 4 are studying India, Year 5 are contrasting Waltham Abbey with Hastings and Year 6 (after SATs) will be launching their topic on Shakespeare.


Tommy Watson (Mrs Sach’s Class) took Percy home over the weekend.  Natalia (Miss Gibb’s class) visited me this week because she has been working extremely hard in her maths lessons.  Megan Woodward (Mrs Chapman’s Class) also visited me this week because she had been rewarded a Green Card for completing some extra homework about the Royal Wedding.  Albie Paris (Miss Gordon/ Mrs Tsyterman’s Class) is the latest year three child to learn all of his times tables and start learning his platinum awards.  I have also had visits from another 10 children too.  Well done to everyone!


The class with the best attendance last week was Miss Smith’s with 100%.

Dinner money

This is just a reminder that school dinners now cost £1.90 per day, £9.50 for all week.
