Elford 2 (Year 4) focused on Manners in their class assembly on Tuesday. I was so impressed with how confident they were in performing. Their assembly showed that the children have so many skills including acting, singing,...

Throughout the week classes have been engaged in a range of fun activities which have allowed for plenty of time to...

We will remember

I am finding it hard to choose a highlight from last week, but the main focus was on remembrance.

Sandhurst 2 class assembly all about Remembrance day was wonderful and it was great to see so many parents come to watch. On Friday, the Remembrance Day class circles poignant 2 minutes silence gave me goosebumps, especially when the sun came out briefly from behind the clouds....

Educational experiences

As we are approaching the final week of this half term, I have been reflecting on the wealth of educational experiences we offer at school. For families living on tight budgets, in the current economic climate it is very difficult to do anything beyond feeding and clothing their children. This makes it even more vital that we can offer all those life experiences,...

Celebrating Black History month

October is Black history month and last week Mrs Marshall led our family assemblies. She spoke to the children about famous black people that they already know including, Marcus Rashford, Meghan Markle and Oti Mobuse. The focus of the assembly was then shifted to make the children aware of lesser-known black people who have had significant impact on the world...

A high quality environment

The Strategic Leadership team completed environment walks over the last week and we shared the feedback at our weekly meeting. Everyone was very impressed with the high-quality environments that staff have created both inside classrooms and in shared areas. It takes commitment and a lot of hard work to keeping up this high standard.

We want to maximise the learning...

Queen Elizabeth 1, the ultimate role model

As I reflect on our first week of a new school term, I recognise how momentous it was for the country and the world. We are living through another unprecedented period of history. To witness the monarch welcome in a new prime minister two days before sadly dying at the age of 96 is a huge amount to process.

In school we have been and will continue...

The perfect end to the year 😊

This week started with school sweltering in the heatwave, and we had to make the decision to close after lunch to keep everyone safe and cool. The sensible way our children dealt with the high temperatures was so impressive and the support given by families was very much appreciated.

Faced with the challenges this loss of time created, the Year 6 team...
