Some highlights from this week

Years 1 and 2 had a wonderful trip to Windsor Castle on Thursday! The children were an absolute credit to the school and thoroughly enjoyed their first big school trip. In EYFS the children have been exploring the school library and choosing their own books, Middle School made marvellous mud portraits on Wild Wednesday, and Upper School represented the school superbly at the village War Memorial on Remembrance Day.


In December we will be having a Christmas Raffle.  There will be three hampers up for grabs; one from each of the three school phases.  We would be very grateful for colour themed items to fill the hampers which can be handed in to your child’s classroom.  The prize draw will take place on Friday 10th December – more details to follow!
