Thank you all for welcoming me into your school and making this such a wonderful 5 years. I will miss you all very much.
These are the children who had hot and cold chocolate with me this week:
Last Friday, Year 6 delighted us with their fabulous play about games (old and new), taking us into a world of Monopoly, Cluedo and Chess! It was brilliantly performed by everyone, with heartfelt singing, exciting acting and a plethora of scene/ costume changes. Great work Year 6. With thanks to Mr Davies and Ms Ali for all their hard work, and our excellent vocal coach too!
On Monday, we held our Sports Day at Paddington Recreation Ground. It was a swelteringly hot day, but despite that we managed to have a great time doing different activities. There was an egg and spoon race, long jump, sprinting and football dribbling amongst other things. We finished with an adults vs Year 6 relay race, which the children easily won! Well done, everyone, and thank you to Mr Pendlebury for organising it.
Today, we awarded children with certificates for their participation, and medals for the children who made the greatest effort and showed the best sportsmanship. We also announced that BLUE team had won this year. Congratulations!
Our second of the week! Today’s newsletter contains the dates for next week: July 13th 2018
Dojo winners for this week:
Next week, anyone who didn’t have hot chocolate this year will be invited!
Early Years had their Sports Day this morning. They did 5 different activities: relay, egg and spoon race, bike race, circle games with a football and a water relay. The children did brilliantly and had a fun time, too! They then delighted us with their pirate song and dance moves. Well done F1 and F2!
It was wonderful to hear the progress made by our violinists and cellists this week at our end of year Music Masters concert. It was particularly lovely to hear all the children playing their instruments together in ensemble pieces. Well done Year 1 and 2!
Here is our weekly newsletter, on a Monday this week!
Hot chocolate winners last week:
On Thursday 28th June, F1 and F2 went to Odds Farm in Buckinghamshire. They had a wonderful time stroking different animals and going on tractor rides!
This week’s newsletter contains dates for the rest of the term and work from last week’s Art Day: June 29th 2018
This week’s Dojo winners had a choice of an ice-cream or hot chocolate because of the hot weather!
We have had some visitors into our school in the last week to share their lives and beliefs with the children. Year 4 had a visit by a Sikh, who talked about the 7 Ks of Sikhism and what life is like for him. Year 1 and 5 were visited by a Jewish believer, who spoke about different practices in Judaism. She also brought Challah bread, which the children were able to try!
Our children have told us they love these visits, because it helps them to understand the difference faith makes to a believer’s life – it makes it real and relevant for them. It also helps them to develop respect for others, which is one of our core Christian values.
We are very grateful to our visitors for giving up their time to come and see us.
