No more straws!

We are very proud of Sophia in year 5 and her brother Alex in year 2.  They were so moved by a news report they saw about the harm that plastic can do to sea creatures, that they wrote a letter to Mrs Ensor and Mrs Wilby, asking for the school to stop using plastic straws.

A lot of children in the infant school have milk every day, and this used to come in individual cartons, each with a plastic straw that was thrown away after use.

Since Sophia and Alex raised this issue, our milk is now delivered in large, recyclable bottles and the children drink out of reusable beakers.

Sophia is very happy about the change that we have made. She says 'I watched a video of a turtle who was hurt by a straw and I felt upset.  Now I want to get rid of other kinds of plastic - I am still thinking of how.'

Here they are with the new beakers.

Book Assembly

Yesterday's World Book Day assemblies were lots of fun.  Some of the teachers read from their favourite books - can you guess which one Mr Blake and Mrs Allin chose?


Here are a few of our 'best dressed' from the Junior School - everyone looked amazing, thank you all for your efforts - its just a shame we cannot show them all on here!

Proud Mascot

 We are very excited to share something that Maddie from Meerkats class has done after school.

 Maddie's cousin, Ellis Hillman, plays for Oxford United Ladies football team. They had a match last Thursday against Brighton & Hove Albion Ladies at the Lancing FA club.

Maddie was invited to be the mascot for the Oxford United Ladies team. She wore the same football number as her cousin and ran out onto the pitch with both teams and met and shook hands with the referees.

This was an awesome experience for Maddie, who loved every minute of it, which I think you will agree, is evident by the massive smile on her face.

If your child has some news that you would like to share, just let us know!
