We have loved hearing about all of the exciting things the children have got up to over the summer and wanted to share something with you.
Abi from year 5 is looking a little different this term. When she left us in July she had very long hair, but over the holidays she had 10 inches cut off!
Abi donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, who will use it to make wigs for children who have sadly lost their own hair to illness. As well as giving her hair, Abi's mum set up a facebook page to raise money for the charity and they managed to raise an amazing figure of £180.
Well done Abi for being so kind and thoughtful. We think your new hairstyle looks great!
To celebrate the Royal Wedding, each class has made a card and every child has written a special message to Harry and Meghan. Here are the cards just before they Mrs Hankin carried them off to the post office in an very big package!
We are very proud of Thea in Saturn Class. She started to learn the piano around eighteen months ago and has now just passed her entry level exam with a distinction!
Thea was presented with her certificate during an assembly. For the exam, she had to play three pieces and also do scales and two exercises. She has worked very hard to gain her distinction and is now keen to start working towards her grade one exam.
Keep up the good work Thea!
We have had a lovely mufti day to celebrate the end of the 'Big Pedal'.

Today the children in the Infant School had a special assembly to celebrate our Bedtime Story Challenge.
Over 60 children handed in their completed challenge sheets after having a bedtime story every day during March. We are so proud of all of them and want to say a big 'thank you' to all of the mums, dads, nannies, grandads, brothers, sisters and everyone else who shared stories over the month.
Mrs Jones, our English Subject Leader, presented a certificate and book to everyone who had handed in their sheet. As part of the challenge, the children could write about their favourite book and draw their favourite character. Alex in year 2 won a special prize for making Mrs Jones laugh with his work.
Well done to everyone who shared a story in March. Books are brilliant - keep on reading!
