On October 7th 2016 we had our annual Green Day. Reception class enjoyed a day packed with activities. We learnt about road safety with Lollypop Linda & Julie. We did some outside learning with Mrs Jordan making art pictures using leaves. We did food tasting with Lynda from ASDA, learnt about safety of dogs with Mrs Crouch and planted potatoes in our outside planters.
What a wonderful start in year 5. We are all very impressed with the children’s behaviour, willingness to learn and how kind the children are to each other.

Well done to all the children a fantastic start.
Well the children all had a good night’s sleep and had a hearty breakfast before setting off for a tough morning shopping at Etaples market. Lots of lovely presents have been purchased at the market for some very lucky relatives!
We had to have a change in the itinerary as we realised that our planned visit to Abbeville Market coincided with the start of the stage 6 of Le Tour De France from the town centre meaning we would probably not be able to get anywhere near the town! As a result of this, market day was changed to Tuesday and the Rue tour and Caves will be visited on Thursday.
After a packed lunch provided by the Chateau the children visited Berck Sur Mer and the sweet factory where all the children were able to make a lollipop in the shape of an animal. Some new species of animals have been discovered today! This was followed by some time on the beach to run off a bit of energy!
The weather today had not been as glorious an yesterday, cloudy with a little drizzle but nothing that would put us off our activities.
Tonight, the Chateau activity is the campfire activity so hopefully no complaints about being cold!
On Thursday 18th June we invited Dads, Grandads and Uncles to come and enjoy a celebtration dinner with the children.
Please take a moment to have a look through some photos. (sorry if I missed you)

Yesterday, our very talented Key Stage 2 children showcased their musical skills in a concert for the whole school. It was a wonderful 30 minutes of music with children who have only begun lessons in September showing us what they can do, right through to our accomplished players in Year 6 who have been playing for three years.
Well done to all, we are very proud of you!
