An exciting couple of days. The children were really excited about the arrival of Jeremy Strong into school, and there were many envious eyes fro Years 5 and 6 to their peers in 3 and 4. The demand for signed books really did surprise us all and therefore we have had to order even more into school. I was greeted on the playground on Wednesday morning with yet another trophy that the school had managed to win. This time we had to settle for second and third place in the Gateway Cluster Football competition. Well done to everyone that participated even in the cold weather. The staff had a really useful Staff Meeting on Wednesday night. We were looking at Reading within school as well as how children learn. Two very stimulating conversation which will have enormous consequences for our school.
Thursday was a day to remember. Our whole school came together to remember those who courageously have fought and are still fighting so that many people can be free in this world. Having children in our assembly whose families are still out in Afghanistan really does bring home the message to our community. The children were respectful whilst we heard about the good work of the British Legion. The children then marked 11 o'clock in complete silence whilst we ran the single from the British legion.
Later on we wished the girls all the very best as they took on Mr. Ellicott and his girls football team over in Northfield.
