We are in the process of putting together a photo calendar for 2017 that we will be selling to raise funds for the school. The calendar will feature the children whose birthdays fall into each month of the year.
A massive thank you to Nice Bowers of Nice Bowers Photography who donated her time to take the group photos. Thank you too to Anna Chapman, Emma Lambert and Helen Carter for their organising and props. And last, but by no means least, a huge thank you to the staff for putting up with the disruption and working around having the children out of class.
Further details on cost and how to order will be sent out in due course.
Year 2 visited the Museum of London today as part of their topic on the Great Fire of London. The children visited the Fire! Fire! Exhibition and were able to look at real artefacts and engage in the interactive displays. They all behaved beautifully both on the train into London and also in the Museum. They found out lots of interesting facts and thoroughly enjoyed their day.
Thank you to our parent helpers, Ms Florulli, Mrs Gray, Mrs Miah, Miss Moore and Mrs Stevens.
This afternoon some of our girls from Year 5 and 6 took part in the local schools Girls Football Tournament held at The Grove Junior School. They played 3 very tough matches against The Grove Juniors (the eventual finalists), Redbourn Juniors and Roundwood Primary. Although the results didn’t go their way (0-0 draw, 0-2 loss and 0-2 loss), our girls played really well, with great enthusiasm and team spirit.
To add to the enjoyment of the afternoon, some of the Arsenal ladies football team attended (along with the Arsenal dinosaur mascot!) and refereed the matches.
Year 5 visited Batford Springs today as part of their river study. They learnt about the chalk streams from Mr Randall, one of the Batford Springs Volunteers, and saw a spring from an underground aquifer. They had lots of fun investigating the depth and flow of the River Lea!
Huge thanks to our parent helpers Mrs Tinnion, Mrs Morrow and Mrs Martin who accompanied the children and helped with the activities.
What a lovely Harvest assembly Year 2 led on this morning! They were all very enthusiastic as they sang, recited poems and showed us their fantastic pictures. We also learnt some interesting facts about how bananas are picked and transported, and also the UK’s top 10 favourite fruits.
Thank you to our parents and carers for all the donations brought into school. A representative from The Vineyard Church in St Albans came in to collect the items in order to then distribute them to those in need within our community. They were very grateful indeed for the donations!
