Oliver’s fruit salad

As we’ve been reading Oliver’s Fruit salad this week in our group time we planned to make fruit salad with the children for everyone to share .

The children helped to chop up all the ingredients. One child scooped the seeds out of the melon and another child helped to top and tail the strawberries. There was lots of cutting to do and so we worked together. Afterwards we ate the fruit salad and decided it was delicious

Final INSET Day of the Year…

June 7 – Calendar Icon – Vector Illustration

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have just finalised the last INSET day for this academic year. These are days when the school is closed to learners, to allow us to access training for our staff. This will be taken on Monday 7th June, which is the first day of next half term.

We will write to parents again nearer the date, but we wanted to give the community as much of an advance warning as possible.

* nb – This has changed today from Friday 28th May – apologies if anyone saw the earlier announcement *

Equiano – Reheaded!

At the end of term, we shared the news of the vandalism of the statue in Telegraph Hill park of the anti-slavery campaigner, Equiano. On the very last day of term, we also heard that the missing head of the statue had been relocated. We headed off into the Easter break feeling that we had at least the parts of puzzle, if not the solution.

Then, during the break, on the grapevine, we heard that the head and body were being reunited. This ‘reheading’ was attended by members of the local community and both the current Edmund Waller headteacher, Anne Rennie, and the headteacher at the time of the statue’s creation, Graham Jameson.

Ah…there you are!

Welcome Back!

Happy Monday! The sun is out and the classrooms are full once again. Welcome back to all our learners to the final term of the academic year.

We trust you all had a restful break and found some time to enjoy the sunshine and gradual easing of the national restrictions.

We are looking forward (fingers crossed) to an uninterrupted term of learning. Keep your eyes on the blog for updates for each year group.
