Armistice Day

Last year we took the school council to the armistice day service in Monkton Village.  This year the service is on Saturday. (11.11.17)  This is always a moving and poignant service and I would encourage as many of you to attend as possible.  The service will begin at 11am at the cenotaph.

Rupert Brooke

The Soldier

IF I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by the suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

World War 2 Projects!!

A big thank you to all parents, guardians, aunties, uncles and friends who have helped Y6 with their WW2 projects. They were amazing!! We had everything from cake, models, medals, pictures, text and IT.

A real diverse mix – the children thoroughly enjoyed doing their own and listening to how other children made theirs.

Thanks again

New School Building Consultation

This is a letter from Kier inviting everyone to a consultation regarding the new build school on the site of Toner Avenue.  It will be a chance to ask the builders and the EFA questions regarding the build and see some of the plans and drawings.  I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Many Thanks.

Pumpkin Contest 2017

Wow!  What a fabulous set of pumpkins again this year.  I found it so difficult to chose winners in each class!  Some of the creativity and artistic ability that the children (and grown ups) have shown is incredible.

A huge thank you to everyone that took part and helped their children carve the pumpkins, we have had lots of fun today looking at them all!

Below are the winners from each class, but you can see pretty much every pumpkin that came in this year by clicking here.

Thank you again.

Mr Arthur.
