Next week’s value is Compassion

 

Matthew 9:36

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd’’.

Dear Parents/Carers

Monday’s Science Day was a great success, starting with an informative assembly and followed by lots of exciting activities and investigations, including examining liquids behaving strangely, setting off ‘fizzy’ rockets, producing water cycle dramas, creating ‘seasonal’ artworks, mixing colour pigments and studying insulation, hibernation and even some elementary chromatography! 

On Wednesday afternoon, selected pupils took part in the Regional General Knowledge Quiz Championships at George Abbott School. Although we didn’t quite make it to top position, participants did extremely well and are to be congratulated. Thank you also to Mrs Fozard and parents who attended and lent their support.

Super School Councillors attended a Joint Schools’ Council meeting at Woolmer Hill and came back with lots of ideas this week and Year 2 children delivered a superb assembly on Thursday, telling an engrossed audience about what they have been learning in their topic work ‘Around the World’ this term. Thank you to children and teachers for working extremely hard to entertain us.

Finally, a plea to parents of younger children: can I respectfully ask that, when bringing younger children to watch our assemblies, you ensure they remain seated and quiet throughout the performance. Otherwise, please remove them via the doors to the rear of the hall. This ensures that children who have practised so hard and other audience members, who have come to support them, can get the full enjoyment from these ‘painstakingly’ prepared presentations. Thank you in anticipation of your full cooperation. 

Have a great weekend.
