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

We are delighted to announce that with immediate effect payments to the school can be made on-line.  A letter has been sent home and further information can be seen here Creating Online Account and Agora Activation.

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.

It was great to see so many of you at the Meet the Teacher and Curriculum evening on Wednesday.  It is great to know that the children and the school have such great support.  Many of you completed a questionnaire that evening, looking at what further training you would like in order to support your children even better.  We will analyse those results and look forward to running several events in response.  If you haven’t yet returned your questionnaire please do!

Please do also follow this link to let Ofsted know your views.

Year 6 depart on Monday 8th June and will return on Friday 12th June. Mr Robertson and Mrs Lund will be leading this trip. We hope to be running a blog from Walnut Tree Manor. Please click here.
