Community remembrance event

The school welcomed members of our community this afternoon; some are members of the Welcome Club and others belong to the Royal British Legion.  The Eagles, helped by Mrs Arbuthnott, provided afternoon tea for the visitors and we were very proud of the whole school as each class provided some entertainment.  Songs were sung, poetry recited and art shared.  The community members had a wonderful afternoon and the children were a credit to us all.

PGL update

Everyone enjoyed dinner last night – pasta and meatballs and then, after a good night’s sleep – (the last room was woken up at 7.40!), the packing process has been completed and the morning’s activities will include abseiling and aeroball!

Writing competition!

Our first writing competition is now open!  The theme is autumn – children are asked to write either a descriptive piece, a poem, a recount or an imaginative piece.  Entry sheets are available in school and your child is reminded to think about the content, presentation and how their writing creates a ‘wow’ reaction for the reader.  The closing date for entries is Thursday 22nd October and the winner will be announced on Friday 23rd in assembly.  Entries will be displayed in the library.  I’m really looking forward to reading the entries!  🙂
