Week Ending 11th July 2014

Another busy week has flown by!

Saturday dawned grey and cloudy for the village carnival, but a bit of rain didn't dampen anyone's spirits, and our school float was the brightest, most colourful, and definitely the noisiest float in the parade!

On Monday, there was an Open Afternoon, when parents could share the achievements of their children, with their children. It was lovely to see the children showing their favourite pieces of work to their parents, and hearing their parents' comments.

Wednesday was the chance for parents to "meet the new teacher", and ask any relevant questions pertinent to September. The children visited their new class on the same day, so that they will know exactly where to go and who to talk to next term. Pre-School also had their Induction Day for parents and new Hamsters.

On Friday, a group of Design and Technology students came to visit from Manshead School, a local secondary school, to work on a wall hanging project with our children. A fun and slightly messy time was had by all, so thank you to all concerned!

Friday was also the day of our EBA Enterprise Festival. The children in Badgers and Foxes Classes worked hard to provide an afternoon of activities and entertainment for children and parents, and managed to make over £100 in profit! There were crafts stalls, plant stalls, a puppet show, an obstacle course, a treasure hunt... The cake stall sold out very quickly, and the Teddy Bears' Picnic was particularly popular - a thoroughly fun and exciting Friday afternoon!


Remember, if you would like your child to attend one or all of the "Mad Science" holiday days during the week commencing 28th July, please book online at

Hope you all have a happy, relaxing summer!
