Finally, we are at the end of our building work (well apart from some little finishing touches that you hopefully won’t notice!) The hall feels enormous compared to the space we had been using since January. Not only is it larger, but there are new doors and freshly painted walls. The result is the final piece of the jigsaw to upgrade our school to make it fit for the 21st Century and to show off the school in a positive light to all who visit us.

It was a lovely hot sunny evening for the ACSA "Leavers Disco" this year, and it was decided to hold it outside on the playground. Key Stage 2 children came along in great numbers and dressed to impress; it was a wonderfully enjoyable evening although a sad one for some. Thanks to our parents association for organising it.

With visually spectacular sets and costumes and some wonderful acting and singing, the Year 6 leavers entertained a packed hall with a twist on a well known tale from King Arthur's Camelot. There is a video of the whole performance in the parents' area, along with one showing each leaver being presented with a dictionary by Mrs Shepherd.  parents area

Wednesday's class assembly by 3JS put over a very important message about recycling, not wasting and re-using, in a clear way. They presented their ideas through poems, acting and music. The recorder playing was excellent even in double time! If you missed it , watch the video in the parents area. parents area
