Tag Rugby Win

Hooray! We won the Tag Rugby Tournament beating schools with playing fields and those much bigger than us. How brilliant is that? We are to feature in the Argus and will also play in the regional finals. If we win again we will the go on to play at Twickenham. The regional finals take place on Wednesday June 3rd. Thank you Ms Whiting for your excellent training sessions and to the parents and carers who have been so supportive.

Year 6 and the C-Curve

Year 6 celebrated the end of SATs with a picnic on the downs. The children walked up to view the Anish Kapoor sculpture; the C-Curve and then visited the Chattri.

On Time Teds

Last weeks winners were Year 2 and Year 5 both with zero late marks. Well done to both classes for excellent punctuality. This weeks winners are Year 1 and Year 2 sharing the Ted. They each had only 4 late marks. Year 4 are the Key Stage 2 winners with 0 late marks. Well done Years 1, 2 and 4!

Year 4 Residential Trip

Year 4 will be on a residential trip from Monday 1st June (that’s the first day back after half term!). They will be joining other schools from the City Centre at Galverston Hall for 3 days of activities and fun. They also have the added treat of spending time and making friends with children from other schools in the area.
