The Active Kids Scheme is back in Sainsburys and the vouchers are being issued to customers from now until 5th May. Please remember to ask for them when you do your weekly shopping. The more vouchers we can collect, the more sports and cooking equipment the school will be able to order. A collection box has been set up in the entrance hall. Thank you.
Our football team played an exciting match against High Beeches this afternoon which resulted in a well-earned 1-1 draw. Well done to our team who played with great team spirit and endless enthusiasm!
Thank you to the large number of parents and carers who didn’t let the cold weather stop them coming along to support the children and also to Mr Harris and Miss Tyler, our coaches.
Year 5 and 6 took part in a Childline Workshop at school today. The visitors who ran the workshop were very impressed with how well behaved and thoughtful the children were in their group discussions.
This morning, Year 1 and 4 visited All Saints Church in Harpenden to learn about baptisms. Some of the children from Year 1 took part in a baptism role play. Thank you to our parent helpers, Ms Milioto, Mrs Kinghorn and Mr Mudd.
In the afternoon, Year 2 also visited All Saints Church. They took part in a treasure hunt to find different features in the church, and learned about what the altar and font are used for. Thank you to our Year 2 parent helpers, Mr Stanley and Ms Waller.
The sessions given at All Saints were kindly organised and run by Reverend Linda Williams and Natalie Edwards of Jump!
Year 3 travelled into London on the train to visit the Natural History Museum today. As part of their topic on Earthquakes and Volcanoes, the children got to experience a simulated earthquake, enjoyed using all the interactive displays, touched volcanic rocks and watched an educational film. Their behaviour was fantastic all day, particularly when they experienced train delays on their return journey. They were a credit to the school.
Thank you to our parent helpers, Ms McCallister and Mrs Stevens; Ms Maycock and also to Mrs Davey and Mrs Hills who organised the trip.
Year 6 gave their assembly on World War 1 this morning. It was an excellent, thought provoking assembly. The children were well prepared, acting out a scene from the trenches and delivering their lines with confidence. It was lovely to see so many parents and carers come along to watch and support the children. Thank you to Miss Lincoln for helping Year 6 to prepare for the assembly.
