New Arrival – We are delighted to say that Mr and Mrs Field’s new baby boy arrived on Tuesday this week and will be called Edward. Congratulations to the family.



Inset Day – We hope you all enjoy your half term holiday next week and don’t forget there is an Inset Day on Monday 5th November so the children do not return to school until Tuesday 6thNovember.


Science Week – Themed around ‘Is anybody out there?’  It was of course, all about space.  The children have had a tremendous time; from our own displays of earth with its view of space and asteroids, to the excitement of theatre groups, trips and a visiting space dome.  They have taken part in a fabulous range of activities and have carried out lots of investigative science.  We would love to hear your views on their reactions to it all.

The staff have spent a huge amount of time and energy on this week and what a week!  Celebrating new life in our midst and the possibility of further life in the universe!  We leave the term with a big bang! (Pun very much intended)  Alison Lecorgne – Science Co-ordinator


Swimming Gala – Last week a group of children took part in a swimming gala of competitive and fun races with five cluster schools.  Our school came third overall and the children performed and behaved very well.  Well done to Amy Allen, Joshua Palmer, Lucy Ball, Molly Cole, Alex Ostridge, David Carr, Andrew Carr, Archie Kennedy, Silas Mendez, Astrid Tozer, Kathryn Hall, Peter Mason and Georgina Benham.
