This week we received a letter from the Department for Education congratulating us for our successes last academic year. We’re all very proud of our children and the staff who helped make this happen. And, of course, this cannot work without the support of our parents and families.
This week every year group from Foundation Stage to Year 6 presented a hand baked cake to a panel of judges to see who made the most yummy cake. All submissions had to contain fruit and/or vegetables (i.e.not a chocolate cake or Victoria Sponge) and should be a single tier. They each had to bake the cake from scratch for themselves and with minimal help from an adult.
They were all brilliant but there could be only one winner. This year it was these wonderful children in Year 2 with a very scrumptious Courgette Cake.
The school council were honoured to meet the Lord Mayor and some of his councillors. The school Council shared the benefits of their launched healthy eating campaign and their plan for supporting food banks with the Mayor. All the children benefited from the trip by learning about the role of the Lord Mayor and City Councillors.
This week our Year 5 children put on an excellent performance to the whole school and our parents for this week’s Eid al Adha celebrations. It was a wonderful performance which was followed by celebrations in the classrooms.
The highly talented artist, Colin Slater, painted our Champions Mural at the end of 2015. We’re all still very taken back by it. The images of these real life heroes of modern history have really captured the imagination of our pupils and families. Colin has also created a video for you to see (below).
