The photos are in! A big thank you to Kemnal Technology College who invited Year 6 over to use their recently refurbished food technology rooms and equipment to enrich our curriculum! Year 6 had a fantastic time! The KTC pupil ambassadors were amazing and helped us immensely .

Year 6 commented that the day was excellent and they really enjoyed eating the biscuits they made after a competitive session during PE!

Kemnal also commented on how well behaved and the year group was and would like to thank them for all of the positive messages they wrote to KTC staff in their feedback.


Yesterday, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lyon completed a 10 mile walk across London, starting at Battersea Park and finishing at Tower Bridge all in the aid of Diabetes. Well done ladies!

This week the children had the opportunity to look at a model wagon from Beau's (Year 3) family. Everyone loved looking at all the small details inside including a copper kettle and a fireplace. They talked about how it would have been pulled by horses. A big thank you to Beau and her family for sharing it with us!

Weekly Snippets:

In Year 4 during Art, the children have been exploring the work of David Hockey. David is a Digital Artist who creates landscape pictures known as 'Art Pop' by using layering. The children had a go at creating their own 'Art Pop' in the Computer Suite. They chose their background colour and the different layers their picture would have.
Take a look at their work!


We are looking forward to meeting our new Reception parents tomorrow along with our new Reception team, Mrs Harrex and Mrs Penfold. See you at 9.15am.
