I can’t begin to tell you how proud we all are with our Year 6 class. You wouldn’t have been able to tell that SATs was taking place in our school at all because calmness and positivity has filled the air. The children took each day in their stride and staff have certainly ensured that the children are prepared and keep their outlook that they can only do their best. Well done to our Year 6 role models. You are all an inspiration and an absolute delight. Mrs Rossall has worked so hard to prepare the children, as have all staff within the class. There really was a compliment for you Mrs Rossall when I described you in today’s assembly as a solid block of cheese!
I write this blog with a tiny duckling sat next to me. It is my job to ‘train her legs’ this weekend. The duckling has been rescued and it is sure to be another welcome face around school. Splayed legs are not something I have ever dealt with but I have detailed instructions outlining how to care for this little duck from Miss Stewart.
When I arrived home, I received a message to say that our Year 2 gymnasts have won the competition. This is absolutely incredible and another wonderful achievement for our small school. Well done children-you are a credit to us! Mr Gilmour will be reporting on this on our sports page. Thank you Mr Gilmour and Miss Stewart for preparing the children.
There have been so many wonderful things going on in and around school. We had military soldiers working with Beacon Class, Olive visited us to give letters from Kenya to the children and to take the clothes and stationery we collected for Lent, archery is still being enjoyed and every classroom is alive. Please do have a look on class pages to see what has been going on.
My green fingers have excelled today and I have strimmed the Land of Pure Imagination like I have never strimmed before! Mrs Kerr’s bug hotel making skills have also excelled and so has her eye for colour matching plants . Tom Luke has very kindly donated plants and planters and he has helped us to transform the 3D mud dinosaur. He has worked with Year 5 children, who have focused on a garden project at the front of school. School looks better than ever! Thank you very much Tom for supporting us. Personally, I would have mixed yellow and red plants but I am clearly no expert!
Next week, we look forward to our May Procession, visit from the Mayor-with band playing and garden party -and much more. Our music concert is in the school hall on Friday morning at 9.30am. Come and join us!
Have a lovely weekend.
