Lots and lots of cyclists will fill the city’s bike paths for the Lord Mayor’s Bike Ride tomorrow – Sunday 13th April. Portsmouth Lord Mayor Cllr Lynne Stagg will lead the event to raise money for charity and encourage people to get back in the saddle. There will be an eight-and-a-half mile ride starting at 11am for families. For those who want more of a workout there will also be a 16-mile ride starting at 10.30am. The Portsmouth Cycle Exchange has also donated bikes for the ‘best-dressed rider’. Could be fun if you go to watch the cyclists, many of whom will be dressing up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an amazing send off today. You have spoilt me with gifts and some stunning and thoughtful cards which I will treasure. My new Zatchel is gorgeous. I can’t wait to use it and show it off. Due to being rather tearful in assembly just now I was unable to finish what I wanted to say. I love The Flying Bull Academy and that is because of all of YOU! Visitors always comment that we are a wonderful community and it really is. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this. I leave today with so many happy memories and I will be taking so much Flying Bull spirit with me that I feel well equipped for my new job. I really will miss you and plan on visiting…
This morning in assembly, we celebrated the many sporting Spring Term successes of our children. Super well done to those who represented the school in The Fun Run, Sports Hall Athletics, Cheerleading, Tag Rugby and Football Division Two. All the children pictured have been awarded an array of trophies, medals and certificates. The Cheerleading Squad were excited by winning the Best Overall Team and the Football Team were the over-all winners of their division. This is simply brilliant and highlights that working hard and as a team can have tremendous results. With thanks to the children for attending clubs after school, parents / carers for encouraging children to attend and the staff who support the children. An especially big THANK YOU to Mrs Churchill for coordinating all of this. Whoop whoop to The Flying Bull Academy.
The school nurse will be with us this morning from 8.30am. You will find her on the playground. She will then spend time in school for you to meet and speak with her until 9.30am. Photo to follow…
Our chickens are loving the Environmental Area and love it even more when you come to say hello. Mr Thomas often eats his lunch with the girls.
