‘Stop Means Stop’ Campaign

October 17, 2017

We have been asked to let parents and carers know about the ‘Stop Means Stop’ Campaign being run by Hertfordshire County Council which is aimed at reminding drivers of their duty to stop for school crossing patrols.

A common misconception is that the School Crossing Patrol Service is only there to cross children. By law, patrols cross any pedestrian that wishes to cross and have the same legal authority to stop traffic, at their designated sites, as the police under the 2002 Amendment of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (Section 26 to 28). Failure to stop can result in a minimum of three points on an individual’s licence and/or a fine of up to £1,000.


School Lunches

October 13, 2017

The new school lunch menu for after half term will be sent home in pupils’ bookbags next week. A reminder that if you wish to change your child’s meal option from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa after half term, you must let the school office know before the end of next week, i.e. before the half term break. Thank you.


Year Trip to Batford Springs

October 13, 2017

Year 4’s postponed visit to Batford Springs, took place last Friday. It was a beautiful autumn day and the children had an enjoyable time looking for and studying the different wildlife and learning about their habitats. This involved paddling in the river to look for the wildlife, which was thoroughly enjoyed!

Thank you to Mrs Morosanu and Mrs Sidoruk, our parent helpers.


Islam Workshops

October 11, 2017

Our school Islam day was a great success. The day started with a whole school assembly given by Claire Ali from Islam Educational Workshops. She then visited the classrooms for fun and interactive workshops throughout the day, which included songs, artefacts and the clothing worn. The children developed an understanding of the Islamic faith and the key festivals celebrated.

Thank you to Mrs Akehurst who organised the day.


Girls Football League

October 10, 2017

Our girls’ team from Year 5 and 6 played another two matches in the local schools girls’ football league today. Mr Harris, who accompanied the girls to Wood End Primary, was again extremely impressed with how well they played – they get better every game they play! The first match against Crabtree Juniors resulted in a 0-0 draw and the second was a fantastic win 1-0 against St Nicholas Primary.

Well done to our team, you should be very proud of your achievements!


Year 1 Trip to Tring Museum

October 9, 2017

Year 1 visited Tring Natural History Museum today as part of their Science topic on ‘animals’. First they took part in a workshop and learned all about mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish. They were then able to spend the rest of the day looking around the museum at the wide variety of animals on display.

Thank you to Miss Moore and to our parent helpers, Mrs Hatton and Mrs Boufrioua for coming along to help the children.
