    Another week of wonderful learning opportunities for our children. Y6 attended a trip to the Old Operating Theatre in London Bridge, a Rounders competition in Burgess Park, a visit to the Science Museum and are engaged in Environment workshops;  swimming sessions will continue at Downside Fisher next week. Y4&5 attended a screening of ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and Y3 and some Y6 students attended the same event earlier in the week. Music lessons, library visits and sports coaching sessions continue as usual. It was great to see so many parents and carers on Wednesday to see children’s learning in books and their environments! Now we are looking ahead to Sports Day on Thursday 20th June for Years 1-6 at Southwark Park – full details in the newsletter attached below.
    Our Collective Worship theme has continued to focus on ‘The Early Church’ and the beginning of Christianity with Stephen, Philip and The Road to Damascus. Next week we’ll continue to look at Bible readings from Acts with ‘A Changed Man’, Peter & Tabitha and Peter’s Vision.

    We’re wishing you, along with our whole community, a super weekend!
