It's always a favourite time of the year, and this year was no different. Thank you as always to my staff for putting on a wonderful Christmas lunch and giving up your lunchtimes to make sure everyone had a great time.
Our piano lessons continue to be a big success in school and Mr Harrison really enjoyed sitting in on a session with this young learner from Year Five. You can really see the progress he is making and it was a joy to see his confidence growing. If there are other children who are interested in piano lessons then please don't hesitate to speak to a member of school staff.
Wind? What wind? It might have been a bit wet to go and work at The Den today, but that didn't stop our young learners from continuing their den building activities in the playground. However, the wind did provide a challenge and the lack of purchase on a solid concrete floor was certainly an obstacle, but we persevered. Well done to everyone for being problem-solvers and not giving up.
School Council Election Week
On Thursday 12th October, candidates from year 2-6 took part in the Hustings. Three boys and three girls from each year group wrote a manifesto and read this out in front of the rest of their year group and a member of the Senior Leadership Team. The Hustings gave the voters the information they needed to be able to select the appropriate School Councillors for their year group on election day.
Then on Friday 13th October, years 2-6 went to vote for members of their year group that they wanted to represent them in the School Council. Each child had a voting slip which they had to select a boy and a girl and deposit their voting slip into the ballot box.
The elected School Council will be announced during celebration assembly on Friday 13th October. Good luck to all the candidates involved!
