We’ve had a lovely half term at school to start the year with everyone settling into their classes so well and some really fantastic work being produced. We all really enjoyed inviting so many of you parents in to see the children’s work too. We are planning on an Open Classroom on the last Wednesday afternoon of each half term so you can keep seeing how your children are getting on.

It was a pleasure to announce our House Captains for the new year from our Year 6 group, each demonstrating our school values exceptionally.

For Armstrong, our captains are: Tom Hebditch, Ruby Southwell and Charlie Craig; for Hillary, our captains are: Jasper Culverhouse, Alfie Davey and Aleks Zuchowicz; for Earhart, our captains are: William Neale, Florence Saunders and Rosie Virgin; and for Scott, our captains are: Caleb Silweya, Robyn Ash-Smith and Halle Taylor. In addition to these, we have chosen four children to be leaders for our entire school. This year, our Head Boy is Shahad Mahmud and our Deputy Head Boy is Ruan Fitzgerald. Our Head Girl is Lottie Brunt and our Deputy Head Girl is Isla Glynn.These were very difficult decisions as there are so many children to consider. Well done to all our new leaders.

We really enjoyed seeing so many of our Year R children and their parents at the TSA’s ‘Stories Before Bedtime’ and there were some very snazzy pyjamas on show!

In staffing news, Mrs Penny has done such a great job helping the Year 2s as they settle into Year 3, that she’s now adding to the expertise in the Year 1 team for the second half of the autumn term.

Finally, I’m sad to let you know that Ms Mountford will be leaving us as Nursery teacher at the end of the Autumn Term. Ms Mountford will be beginning a career in social work, where I know that she will continue to help so many people. Ms Mountford has had a huge impact on the school and we wish her every success in the future. We will be advertising for a teacher to come and join the team as soon as possible in the new year. Have a restful and well-earned break!
