James Berry, our school’s newly appointed Headteacher from September 2018, came into school today to begin the transition process. This was the first of a number of visits scheduled over the coming weeks to ensure as smooth a handover as possible.
Huge thanks to The Lea PTA for providing the Y6’s with leavers t-shirts again this year – the children LOVE them!
This afternoon some of our pupils from Year 6 took part in the local schools’ Rounders Tournament held at Redbourn Junior School. They played 5 matches, drawing 2 and very narrowly losing 3 by just one or half a rounder.
The children were a credit to our school, playing with enthusiasm and great teamwork. Well done! Thank you to Mrs Housley and Miss Weston for accompanying the children.
We held our piano concert this afternoon for the parents of pupils who are having lessons at school. It was absolutely delightful to hear the children play. They are all at different levels in their learning so it was interesting to listen to how the pupils progress over time.
Thank you to their piano teacher, Mrs Lowe, for all her support and encouragement with the children, and thank you to the parents who came along and donated to our collection for a new piano stool and keyboard stand. We raised a fantastic £57 – enough to buy both items!
Year 3 visited the British Museum today as part of their topic work on the Aztecs. They carried out an investigation, completing a worksheet as they looked at all the artefacts in the Aztec gallery. This included viewing the Turquoise Serpent, which played an important role in Aztec religion. The children were all beautifully behaved and worked enthusiastically throughout the day.
Thank you to Ms Florulli and Mrs Enstone, and to Mrs Barker and Mrs O’Donnell who joined Mrs Davey and Mrs Hills on the trip.
Year 5 also visited the Museum today, as part of their History curriculum work on the Ancient Greeks. They spent time looking round the relevant galleries in small groups, carrying out various activities. They were fully engaged throughout and were wonderfully behaved.
Thanks to our parent helpers, Mrs Carvalho, Mr Humphrey and Mrs Gudmundsdottir.
