Anyone fancy auditioning?

[09/15/21]   We have had a number of our older children falling asleep in school over the last few days and this has a negative impact on their learning. They have told us that they are tired because they stay up till 1am, 2am and sometimes even later, playing computer games or messaging on their phones. It is really important that children get a good night's sleep for at least 10 hrs each night if possible. Please speak to your child about going to bed at an appropriate time and ensure they don't have access to phones, computers and playstation once in bed.

[09/14/21]   Year 1 parents and carers- please send in a photo of your child, either when they were younger or on a special occasion. You can post on the blog too. They need these for tomorrow's lesson. Thanks

β˜€οΈSchool's out for summer!β˜€οΈ
Good luck to our Y6 children who have left our school gates for the last time as pupils at MPS! We are so very proud of everything they have accomplished; they all have a bright future ahead of them 😊

We also said goodbye to Miss Finch and Mrs Mather from our welfare team plus Miss Obank and Mrs Greenwood from our staff team today. These staff have been with us from a few months to 10 years and 16 years so it's been an emotional day for everyone. We have had a brilliant day, full of little surprises and had great fun.

Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes and gifts for all our staff; you are extremely generous. Have a lovely break; stay safe and we'll see you in September! β˜€οΈπŸ€©β›±οΈ

Today we have had the newest staff member of Mrs McDermott's pastoral team in school. She has been to introduce her self to each class and has had a lovely day. She was really sad to miss out on seeing year 5 children so she is coming back next week for a special visit just to year five.

Urgent - Calling Year 6, calling Year 6.
We have just (tonight) been invited at very short notice to take part in a 'Big Vindaloo' schools video which will be edited together with similar clips from other schools to show support for the England match at the weekend. Please can year 6 children come to school tomorrow in England football kits/shirts (if you have them) or England t-shirts or even dressed in any red, white and blue clothes - just whatever you can find at home. I know it's really short notice for parents but it will be such good fun for the children we couldn't say no. Facepaint is fine, or red and blue make up, hair accessories, hats (feel free to make your own) or even red, blue and white hair spray or wigs. Basically just go to town and try to be as creative as you can based on what you have access to at home.
We will be filming tomorrow as this is our only chance. Please tag or share for others to see in Y6.
