The 2017-18 Kestrel Class spelling teams have been announced. We have:
The Sunnyside Squad
Each team member will have a personal spelling list to learn each week- often words from their own work, or from the National Curriculum lists. They can earn points for their team according to how many spellings they learn and each week a Player of the Week will be chosen for each team, together with an overall Most Valuable Player!
Who will be the first?

We had a trial of family service lunches last term and it was very successful. The aim is for the older children to help the younger children at the tables, helping the older children to develop their caring and leadership roles within the school and encouraging the younger children to be confident with the older children. The idea is to enjoy a family atmosphere, also following table etiquette, like waiting for everybody to be seated before starting to eat and for everybody to be finished before leaving the table.
It was lovely today to see the new children so well cared for and the older children glowing with pride in their roles. Well done to you all...
