Health and Safety News
The pupils love playing with the wooden blocks and other playground equipment on the playground at lunchtime and we often keep them out all week. Could we ask that, if you are waiting around at drop-off or pick up time and you have younger children with you, they could not play with the equipment and that they stay near wherever you are to keep them safe - thank you.
Around the World in 80 Days - Friday 27th May
This Friday sees the whole school getting involved in a Jules Verne, Around the World in 80 Days Experience - we'll be sharing the Victorian adventure of Phileas Fogg's trip. All the children will have the opportunity to take part in a number of country based activities throughout the day, in their house groups and you are invited to join us at the end of the day for a celebration assembly - please come to the main hall at 2:40 p.m. To add to the excitement the children may come to school dressed in a costume from any world country; the national football or rugby strip of a country (e.g. the England strip but not the Swindon Town strip); the colours of a country's national flag.
