Mental Health Awareness week

What a busy time we’ve all had (at home and in school). I hope everyone who celebrated Eid had a lovely time with family and friends. We also need to say a big “Thank You” to Jay and our kitchen team for cooking such a tasty Eid lunch for us all on Friday.

Last week:

  • Year 1 couldn’t have picked a better day to visit St James’s Park – all of the trees and flowers were in full leaf and bloom. I am very impressed with children’s work in class and on Seesaw (at home) demonstrating their scientific understanding of the properties of evergreen and deciduous trees.
  • Congratulations on the success of our Year 1 and Year 2 football teams – thoroughly deserved 1st and 4th positions against other KS1 teams from 8 other schools.
  • Thank you to everyone who has posted a virtual 96th birthday message to Sir David Attenborough, children have left some charming birthday messages. Click on the link to sign and leave a message!
