On Thursday 21st March, it was World Down Syndrome Day!

Well done to all the Year 6 pupils who performed ‘Aladdin’ at the Dance Festival 

We celebrated people who have Down Syndrome and embraced their differences. During assembly, everyone got to learn about Down Syndrome with 18 facts that we didn’t know about people with this disability. They are heroes – heroes that don’t wear capes but heroes who are capable of making anyone smile whenever they are feeling down, heroes that love to joke around and always look on the bright side of any situation. 

On Wednesday 13th March, the members of Year 6 performed a dance to the song ‘Friend Like Me’ from the world-wide known movie Aladdin, at the Arts Depot for the Dance Festival.

Hail Phelan! Hail Phelan! On Roman Day,4SB and 4F had to dress up as Romans.

First thing in the morning they went outside in playground to find roman numerals that spell out a roman code. During the day, they did all kinds of activities which included making mosaics of roman pictures, had a war with the other class and they also made a sculpture of a roman, which most kids thought was very cool.​ By Ruby (5S)

Our school have been using the VLE for at least a year now. It is a great way to learn especially as you can do it with your friends. The VLE stands for Virtual Learning Environment which totally lives up to its name.

Parents asked about the cost of the Year 5 trip to the Golden Hinde (£18) original cost (£25)

Response: The school chooses trips carefully to enhance the education of the pupils. Commercial venues such as Harry Potter are expensive. However, to ensure that our pupils enjoy the best educational experiences we always provide subsidies for these trips. In addition, any parents/carers can speak to the office if they experiencing financial difficulties and payments can be made in installments.
