Year 6 Kingswood Trip
Year 6 Kingswood Trip
The children have had an action packed first day of their residential visit! This morning some children began their day by starting to make their own computer game in 'Game Creation'. The children worked hard to make a maze full of different rooms ready to add characters and tasks to. Other children began their day by flying down the zip wire. Many of the children have scaled the climbing wall, making it right to the top! Some of the groups have had a go at abseiling down the tower backwards, lots of the children said that the first steps backwards were the hardest because they needed to put their trust in the ropes. In the afternoon, the children enjoyed a visit from Ms Scrase, the Headteacher, who was incredibly pleased to see the children having such a good time, setting and achieving their own goals and challenges. This evening we will be taking part in a group activity called 'Trail of Mystery' where the children will need to work together to problem solve.
The children have had an amazing first full day and are already looking forward to tomorrow!
Roald Dahl's Centenary Celebration
Thursday 6th October - Mufti Day
Children can come to school dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character or wear something yellow- Roald Dahl's favourite colour. We are also having a 'Dahlicious' special lunch!
Celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday at Manor Park!
We are planning to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday this year through different events. One of these will be on Thursday 19th May 2016 when we will be holding a mufti day and serving a celebratory menu. For a suggested donation of £1.00, which will be added to the summer fair income, children may come to school on this day in clothing to reflect a Royal theme i.e. as a King, Queen, Prince or Princess or even a Knight or Dragon! For further details please see the letter.
Home Start Charity Donation
We are delighted to announce that the school raised £218.51 for the school council's chosen charity Home Start. Home-Start Sutton offer support, advice and friendship to families with young children who are experiencing difficulties. We provide a combination of services to address issues such as isolation and depression, including home-visits, family group meetings and co-ordinator support to signpost and link families up with other services. The children created a coin chain in the playground and held a guess the jelly bean competition to raise funds.
Thank you so much for your support.
