On Friday the children and staff dusted off their tiaras, got out their glad rags and dressed up as the school celebrated the royal wedding. The flags were flying and there was a sea of red, white and blue, we had princes and princesses parading around the school all day! Mrs Gower had spent hours making 550 cupcakes for every child and staff member, the children were very forthcoming in their appreciation for the time she took to give them a treat.
The Turner Contemporary and Year 4 celebrated their art and film-making in our assembly today.
On Friday we said goodbye to Mr Onions with a special assembly in his honour. Mr Onions has been our site manager for 20 years. We looked back at all the good times he had at the school with photographs and songs one which was made especially for Mr Onions and sung by the children.
It was a funny, emotional and fitting tribute to a much loved man. We will miss him and hope he enjoys his well earned retirement.
Our wonderful PTA have organised an outdoor cinema event at the school on Saturday 4th August. The film will be ‘Sing-Along with The Greatest Showman’. Tickets are available from http://www.THEOPENAIRCINEMA.COM . If your child attends the school please contact us for a discount code.
On a wet and windy Monday afternoon we were very fortunate to welcome Courtney Tulloch to our school to deliver an assembly to the children following his gymnastic success in the Commonwealth Games. Courtney previously came to the school two years ago and spoke to the children about his dreams and aspirations for the future, so we were very excited that he agreed to come back and update the children.
Courtney competed in the rings and vault final as well as the team event in Australia. The team won gold after competing on the various apparatus which was a fantastic start! Courtney then went on to the rings and once again after a faultless routine won the gold medal for Team England. Finally the vault final loomed and Courtney performed a superb vault and gained a silver medal to take his tally to three medals in total.
