Swimming Hats

A big 'Thank You!' to Helen Powis, who very kindly offered to buy the school a set of swimming hats for our gala teams. The hats have now arrived and look fantastic! 

We are so impressed by them that we are considering ordering an additional batch for parents to buy from the school office for KS2 swimming lessons. Please do let the office know if you have any thoughts on this.

Author Visit

This week we have had two visits from author, E R Reilly. On Monday we had a very funny and interesting assembly, and today he came back to school to sign any books we had bought.  Because parents bought over 100 books, the school was given 30 free books and these are now in the school library.

We definitely recommend his books!

Phoenix Story Comic Workshop

"Yesterday Years 4,5 and 6 learnt how to draw our own comics.  The people from The Phoenix Story Comic came for an hour and taught us all about speech bubbles and different facial expressions.  We all really enjoyed it!" 

"Writing and drawing comics yesterday was really fun!  It inspired me to start imagining amazing adventures that I could make up myself.  I also learnt that stories can be about absolutely anything if you try!"
