    A VERY BUSY WEEK! Children continue to have terrific learning and enrichment experiences both in and out of school. All children from Reception – Year 6 have visited the Tate Britain & Modern and the National Gallery for inspiration for their Art topics this term; Key Stage 2 children took part in HIIT workouts and assemblies with athlete Courtney Orange and gained lots of sponsorship from this; Year 4 visited the Unicorn Theatre for a production of ‘The Bolds’; Key Stage 1 children have continued with their Cricket sessions in school; Year 6 attended a Junior Citizenship workshop at the Old Kent Road fire station; 6 Brazil have visited the library this week too and we have had another non-uniform day for contributions to the school fund and more trips, enrichment opportunities and projects. Many thanks for your generous support for this! 

    Our Collective Worship theme  has continued to be focused around the Parables of Jesus and the messages we can all take from these – these will continue for another week before we start to think about Advent and Christmas soon.
