Dear Parents

It was lovely to see so many families enjoying our Open School event on Saturday morning. Thank you for all the very positive feedback. As a staff we are delighted that you were so impressed by all the work around the school and of course the Take One Picture exhibition in the hall. As you know, this is a real team effort and everyone at school played their part in making it such a successful learning opportunity for the children.

Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and Year 5 have been out on a great trips this week. Reception enjoyed a glorious spring day at Mead Open Farm, Year 1 loved their trip to Chiltern Open Air Museum, having the opportunity to find out more about houses and homes, in perfect weather, and Year 5 enjoyed a trip to the theatre to see a production of Running Wild, an adaptation of a Michael Morpurgo book.

Year 6 and staff all enjoyed their visit to the Houses of Parliament, on Tuesday. They were even lucky enough to sit in the Visitors Gallery and watch parliament in session. They managed to see the Speaker in action and hear comments from both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn. This valuable trip has helped to explain the role of parliament and democracy and hopefully inspired some to consider a career in politics. It would suit some of our Year 6 pupils very well!

I am proudly looking forward to an impressive concert this evening when our Chamber Choir are performing at the Festival Hall in a national choral competition. They will be competing against 17 other primary school choirs from all round the country, many of which will come from specialist choral schools. This is a fantastic achievement and the choir have worked very hard over the last few weeks to improve their already strong performance. My thanks to Mrs Izard for all her very hard work and talent to develop these pupils to this level.

I hope everyone enjoys a lovely Spring weekend and I look forward to seeing many of you at our Parent Consultation Evenings, next week.
