It has been good to see all our children and families again after the long Christmas break. The children look rested and have made an excellent start to the new term. I have been especially impressed with this week’s Learning Launches, which have got our cross-curricular work off to a splendid start by igniting the children’s imaginations, engaging their enthusiasm and promoting their love of learning new ideas and knowledge.
Well done to all our Key Stage 1 children and staff, who came to school today as fairy tale characters to set the scene for ‘Once Upon a Time’. Year 3 and Year 4 have enjoyed Tray Bakes, Scavenger Hunts and a Quiz all on a Chocolate theme. Our pupils in Year 5 had the unforgettable experience of Escape Live Secret Service, while our Year 6 students took part in Operation Code Breaker. An icy surprise lies in store next week for our Reception children.
