Caen visit with Year 5 ‘Sous les Pommiers’

Following on from their successful work and concert singing in French and English about the D-Day landings commemorating the 70th Anniversary at the beginning of the year, a group of 22 year 5 children visited Caen last week.

We left early on Sunday 12th October from Portsmouth on the ferry and returned late on Thursday 16th October, after a successful 4 days of rehearsals and concerts, with a little fun in between!

The children were brilliant ambassadors for the school. They sang in 4 concerts, some to French school children and others to the Mayor and other dignitaries from Caen. Everyone was very impressed with how they performed and many adults had tears in their eyes. They are continuing to have contact with the children from Puit Picards primary school, (who they performed with).

On the ferry home, Mrs. Cantini, Mrs. Brazier, Mrs. Adams and Mr. Way were approached by several members of the public to compliment the children on their behaviour and consideration for other people travelling.  We are very proud of them in so many ways!

This morning we were extremely lucky to watch a performance of Robin Hood by M&M Productions. Check out the pictures of Mr Way, Mr Grennan, Mr Povey and Mr Dale showing off their dance moves!

Headlice drop-in

As requested by several parents, a drop in about headlice, with the school nurse, Zoe Long, has been arranged. She will be in school on Tuesday 21st October at 2.15

She will be able to give prescriptions for the solution as requested, as long as the children have live lice.

We would encourage as many people to attend as possible, as it is something that is causing concern.


PE kit reminder

Please don’t forget your PE kits.  Remember, even teachers have to do PE!

WELL DONE to our U11 football team, Fred Ayres, Ben Priestley, Paul Campbell, Luke Davies, Jacob Palmer, Jaiden Jackson-Cole, Armando Vasile and Billi Baverstock, on their cup final win against Victory School. They played very well and it was a close match. It went to extra time after Victory managed to get a penalty close to the end of normal time. It remained level until Billi slotted in the winning goal in the second half of extra time, 4-3 to us! We were very impressed with the way the boys handled themselves and they were a credit to the school. Onward to the GOALS League!!
