Newsletter – 28th September 2018

It is that time of year again, when the Year 6s are away on their residential week and I have the pleasure of writing the newsletter, in the absence of Mr. Linfield. What fantastic weather Year 6 have had this week for those at Kingswood and those taking part in the Activity Week! There will be lots to tell about the Kingswood trip in next week’s newsletter!


We have had an exciting week, with the Year 3 trip to Thorndon Country Park and the Activity Week for a group of Year 6s. More of these twos things a bit later!


It is my privilege and enormous pleasure to be able to include the results of the elections for this year’s Junior Governors and Eco Warriors in this week’s newsletter!

On Monday, Year 3 travelled back in time at Thorndon Country Park.  They had a great time building dinosaur skeletons and investigating the size of a dinosaur footprint and stride, along with other exciting activities.

Year 6 have had a thoroughly enjoyable activity week.  New heights were scaled at Belchamps with the children challenging themselves in a range of activities.  Jacob’s Ladder, crate stacking, climbing and archery.  They also created some wonderful beach art, cooked pizzas, went to Kursaal Bowling and today have been on an exciting trip to London Zoo.
