What a fantastic morning!  Thank you to all of you who got up extra early this morning to join us for our annual birdwatch.  There were more than 50 people there.  If you want to take part in the RSPB Garden Birdwatch this weekend, here’s a link .  Jake Dunn’s bird collective nouns quiz is here too!

Many thanks to those of you who completed the parent questionnaire at Parents Evening recently.  We were very pleased with the outcomes, with satisfaction rates often running in the 90% + range.

However, the condition of the school grounds is one area we have picked up on.  Although this is still rated high (80% satisfied or better) there were a number  who said they were dissatisfied.  Unfortunately, we do not know in what way they were dissatisfied!  If you have any comments on this, please let Mr. Robertson know.  Thank you.

The full results can be seen here.

On Friday 13th November, Lucy Frazer, our local MP visited the school.   She enjoyed a tour of the school getting to say hello to all the pupils before having a question and answer session with the School Council.  She was impressed by what she saw.  Her answer to their final question ‘What do you think about our School?’ was ‘I think this is a great school with a dynamic head where children have fun learning.’

 

What a super day!  Well done to all the children and parents who worked extremely hard to create spots and stripes costumes for the non-uniform day; baked and decorated cakes for the cake break and sent pennies to cover Pudsey.  We raised a super £255 for Children In Need.  Thank you again!

The school observed an immaculate minute’s silence on the playground at 11am on the 11th November in memory of all those who had fought and died in wars.  Many children were proudly sporting their poppies and poppy merchandise.

Please remember that school restarts on Tuesday 3rd November.

The teachers and teaching assistants have been busy learning to use the computers to present pictures and videos.  They are looking forward to sharing this with you in the next couple of weeks. Witch Poem

Less than a week to go now until our Year 5 residential trip to Hilltop (21st -23rd October)! Mr. Robertson, Mr. Palmer and Mrs. Taylor are very excited and we’re sure Year 5 are too!  We will be keeping a blog whilst we are away and updating it regularly.

We held our Harvest Festival on Wednesday 14th October, with super Harvest related poems, songs and artwork.  We were also pleased to welcome Rev Natalie Andrews from St. James’ Church.  Thank you to everyone who so kindly donated items to be shared with the local residents of Hazel Court and the Ely Food Bank.
