French Cafe!


From Monday 13th to Wednesday 15th June the each year group held a french cafe for parents and carers to come along to.


The adults were given paper euros to pay with. To buy from the stalls they were to hold a conversation in french. It was a big hit especially for the children as they got to eat the leftovers.


This went on for each year group doing their french cafe. The week before the french cafe was held everyone practised french to be perfect on the day (almost).


Teachers are Superheroes


On Monday 13th June, two ominous people (more of that later), came to spread the news about how teachers ARE SUPERHEROES!!!!!!!


Surprised, Miss Kelly was given her prize in class because she had the most people writing about her. Many students wrote who they thought which teacher is a superhero. Kate and Darren (the two ominous people) awarded the teachers their prezzies in assembly, their presents included some manicure stuff, sweets, coffee and tea.


Teachers truly deserve this.

On Thursday 9th June our school had the pleasure of seeing Oliver Twist.


By the cast of M&M theatrical. They showed us that men used to kill women and pickpockets can sometimes can be women. Just by luck, we got to see it for free because the original school that was meant to see it cancelled, so they offered it to us exceedingly last minute. It definitely passed joy from everyone, especially Mr. Gray. An array of fantastic songs were enjoyed. Talent and eagerness was shared between everyone to be like them.

On 27th April, a lady came in from the RSPCA to talk to us about her job.


She told us that she would be extremely grateful if we raised money and all the other jobs that you  could have at the RSPCA. She talked about how you had to be 18 to work at the RSPCA.   Everyone was extremely intrigued. She said that the government does not support them so they use their own money and adds up to thousands of pounds per DAY!!!

So they need you! By Leah
