The October half-term arrives after a busy broken week!

The first half-term of the year has arrived and we have had National Poetry Day, two parents' evenings and a soggy football match.

Thank you to all the parents who filled out a parent view questionnaire. We are extremely pleased with your responses and as ever we are always here to listen to feedback or to any concerns you may have. We do not always get it right, but we do our very best. 

I hope you felt the parent teacher meetings were constructive and you have a much clearer idea of where your child is in their learning, where they need to be and how they need to get there. If you were not able to attend either evening, please speak to your child's class teacher to arrange a meeting after half-term. 

The weather yesterday was torrential and the squad and all supporters got drenched at a soggy Herman. Despite our valiant efforts, the team succumbed to a better side and lost the cup tie. Well done for continuing so hard, despite the obvious challenges. We will persevere and resume training when we return. 

A competitive nature surrounded National Poetry Day (belated), as House Teams vied for House Cup. This writing competition occurs at different times over the year and goes a long way to raise the profile of the subject and really inspire our pupils to create the best examples of writing they can. All poems were fantastic. Well done to all pupils and staff for their hard work. 

Attendance was won by Year 6 this week with 98.39%. However, the half-term was won by Year 1. Well done guys! 

I hope you all have a wonderful half-term; stay safe around bonfires and fireworks and I will see you all soon, ready to complete even more marvellous work.
