Hello everyone.

Thank you to the parents and grandparents who joined us for our Funky Friday Assembly. A special mention to Logan (Year 6) and Stan (Year 6) who joined the band and played bass and guitar on ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’.

No Gold Award winners yet, but Finley in Year 6 was presented with an Oscar. Finley is working his socks off! He quietly gets on and is producing some amazing work. He is gentle, kind and unassuming. He’s also a great artist.

Golden Ticketers this week were: Arun and Benjamin (Seashells), Bella and Nimitan (Starfish), Daniel and Stanley (Dolphins), Theo and Millie (Lighthouse), Danny and Beatrix (Coral) and Bonnie and Scirocco (Ocean).

Attendance Matters

The class with the best attendance this week is Starfish Class with a fabulous attendance figure of 99.3%. They chose to have Lily monkey for the week.

Year 6 and their Minnow

This week saw the Minnows join the rest of the school for our Monday and Wednesday assemblies. They sat with their Year 6 buddy and thoroughly enjoyed being part of the whole school. They will soon be in Funky Friday.

More Clubs

Mrs Shukla has informed me that new clubs are heading this way. A football club, dance club, cheerleading and wheely fun club will all be starting either after half term or in the new year. Watch this space. If you know of any outside providers who would like to run a club in our little school – please ask them to contact the school office.
