Y6 Shelter Day


Year 6 luckily managed to avoid the rain yesterday for their shelter day. As part of their migration topic, the children learnt about the many reasons people migrate across the world. They discovered how refugees arrive in countries and learnt about the sorts of conditions they sometimes have to live in. The children worked in groups to design and build their own shelter, and then came back to school at 7pm for their shelter evening. They enjoyed some free time, games, campfire songs (minus the campfire!) and did a sponsored mile walk around the school field to raise money for the Deanery MUGA. We had a fantastic time with Y6 and we were all very impressed with their shelters!


Community Grounds Day & Car Wash May 2018


On Sat 5th May, volunteers came together to help improve the grounds of our school, this coincided with the Year 5 Car Wash to create a buzz of activity around the grounds. Our Community Grounds Day landed on a sunny bank holiday weekend, with over 70 people turning up to help support with gardening, painting and general tidying. As a school we would like to offer a huge thank you to all who dedicated their time; we were overwhelmed with all the support and also requests for this to be repeated. As many of you are aware, the school has been chosen to form part of the route for Sutton in Bloom. With this in mind, we would like to arrange a further Community Day to continue with the work started. Look out for more information to follow. As many of you are aware, the school has been chosen to form part of the route for Sutton in Bloom.


External awards Spring 1 2018


Here are our children's external awards for the first half of the Spring term. Well done everyone for your fantastic achievements and thank you to our house captains for putting together our external awards.


Sutton Sports Awards


As you may be aware, Miss Westbrook, Miss Stableford, Mr Walker and Mrs Luckett attended the Sutton Sports Awards on Friday 26th January. Unfortunately, we didn't win this year, the award went to New Oscott who really did deserve it. We did incredibly well to get shortlisted to the final 3, as 8 school were nominated. We wouldn't have achieved this without the help and support from our fantastic staff and parents with various competitions last year and we thank you very much. Moving forward, we have ideas of how to do better than last year and hopefully it'll be our time to win!
Miss Westbrook, Miss Stableford and Mr Walker.
