Our year 5/6 girls enjoyed an unbeaten start to their Pivotal Skills Football League today winning 3 and drawing 1. Entertaining and attacking football played throughout with some great teamwork.
Year 5 have been investigating gravity, friction and centripetal forces. They have used their knowledge of the forces to design and make their own rollercoasters. 🎢

The Christmas Fair will take place on Friday 29th November between 2.30pm and 3.45pm. As in previous years, most stalls will be replicated in both the Infants and Juniors. Junior children will be allowed to attend the junior fair unsupervised from 2.30pm to 3.15pm, when they will be dismissed. If you wish to meet your child, please arrange a place with them as they will not be in their classroom when the doors open. As always, the fair will be extremely busy. Please do not bring pushchairs if possible. Any pushchairs that are required are to be left near reception please.
General Election- Thursday 12th December
Polling will be taking place in the new hall on Thursday 12th December. Please take extra care arriving and leaving.

Christmas Dinner- Tuesday 17th December
On Tuesday 17th December we will be having our Christmas Dinner. A slip will be sent out soon for those children who do not normally have a school meal but would like to have one on that day.
Cinema Visit – Friday 20th December
We will be visiting the cinema on the morning of the last day of term. More details, with permission slips, will be sent when we know which films are available to us.
End of Term – Friday 20th December
As we have done previously, we are offering parents the option to collect their children (or them making their own way home) at 2.00pm on the Friday that we break up. A letter will be issued nearer the time. As has happened previously, some families will take advantage of this opportunity, whilst other children will stay to the end of the school day, completing festive activities and playing games.
If you require any further information about any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
JS Photography are holding a family photo session on Saturday 9th November. Why not take advantage of a top quality studio photography session at a fraction of the cost of High Street studios!
Appointments are on a first come, first serve basis. Photographs will be taken in the Infant School hall and sessions are open to Infant and Junior children and their families.
Please call the Infant school office to book your slot. 01472 694993.
