The traditional end-of-school-year football match between the Year 6 team (average age 10.75 years) and the staff (average age 32.75) took place this afternoon. The staff team included Mr James, Miss Hawkins, Mr Lees, Mr Beevor and Mr Pitts, and even I made an appearance on the pitch. The school field was lined with children and staff, enjoying the shade under the trees, on what could possibly have been the hottest day of the year. The first goal was scored in the second minute and the crowd went wild as we were forced to play catch up! At the end of the second half it was a draw and after penalties we beat the children 9-6.



Leavers' Assembly and Awards

It was the Leavers' Assembly this morning. The Victory Hall was full, with over 100 parents and children from Years 4, 5 and 6. As well as celebrating the achievements of all the children, 16 awards and trophies were handed out for Sports, Arts, Endeavour, Effort, Citizenship, Achievement, Academic Prowess and Dedication to the School. The long-anticipated Enterprise Challenge Trophy was won by Recycle and Re-use. All of the children in Year 6 sang The Best Day Of Your Life, led by Kiera, and a thank-you speech was read by Brandon. It was an emotional time for many of the children and parents. 


Leavers' Disco & BBQ

It was a beautiful summer's evening for the Year 6 Leavers' BBQ and Disco today. The children had all made an effort with their outfits, and they looked very grown-up. The food was cooked on the BBQ by Mr Bolt, as preparation for his imminent move to Australia! There was a bouncy castle and the disco was held in the marquee.


Netball Against Willowbank

The school High Fives netball team had an amazing win against Willowbrook School. The final score was 19 – 0 with the team - Elli H, Maddy, Jasmin CB, Millie-Jo, Jasmine D, Chanel and Poppy B - demonstrating great sportsmanship and courtesy towards the opposition.


Year 6 GEC Presentations to the Dragons

Mr James, Mrs Rothery and I were back as the 'Dragons' for the final stage of the Enterprise Project. Throughout the day the groups have had the opportunity to make a final presentation of their facts and figures. The children all conducted themselves professionally and were able to answer all the questions we put to them. They are now waiting to see if their group has won, but they will have to wait until the winners are announced at the Leavers' Assembly on Wednesday.
