Message from Mr Walker
A great start to BOPZONE clubs this week – thanks for continuing to support these. There are still a few places left so contact a member of staff if you would like to know about these. Thank you for supporting us with the new access routine with our security fences. I am sure you can appreciate that, while inconvenient, this helps to make our grounds more secure while outdoor clubs are taking place.
Upper School Monkey Bars
Now the winter weather is set to arrive, we will be closing our monkey bars on the Upper School playground in a morning. This area can get extremely slippery and is unsupervised before school starts. Thank you for your support with this. The area will still be used and supervised as usual at playtimes and lunchtimes when the ground has thawed.
Well done to our three Boccia teams that entered the tournament this week at Joseph Whitaker school. There were 17 teams and we came 4th 5th and 6th. Well done!
Year 6 Trip to the Houses of Parliament
Year 6 set off for London very early this morning to be given a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament. They also plan to take in the sights of Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square amongst others.
No Pens Day – Wednesday
This Wednesday is No Pens Day – a national event where we put down our pens and pencils in order to understand all different forms of communication that exist in the world and, in particular, to understand what it is like for those who find communication difficult. The school day will be the same as normal but all of our lessons will be free of pens and pencils!
Good luck to the Y5&6 Cross Country Team this weekend!
