Multi-Faith and Cross Country events ensure the week's success.
It was a real highlight to see how enthusiastic and determined our pupils were at the Cross Country around Fritton Lake on Friday. We managed to achieve three pupils to finish in the top ten for their age group and this means they have qualified for the next phase of the competition. Several others tried their best and only narrowly missed out themselves.
On Thursday, we had arranged for a visitor to come in to help us prepare for our future Ofsted inspection. I was pleased to welcome them to our school as it gave me the opportunity to showcase all that is good about Homefield. It was a highly worthwhile experience and they have recognised our many strengths and identified areas for us to ensure we get even stronger to provide the best possible education for our pupils.
Our Multi-Faith library event was not as full as we would have liked after a couple of religious representatives were unable to attend, however the Islamic and Hindu leaders that did were fantastic and taught our pupils so much about their faiths, cultures and traditions. There were lots of artefacts, moments of audience participation and opportunities for pupils to ask questions and hear the reality for minorities in our local area. Thank you to all the parents who visited after school to see what we had been learning.
This week's Super Readers was won by Year 4. We launched our Bookworm initiative and Year 4 were just outside the 80% target. All classes improved...let us see of we can get a teacher to face a forfeit next week. Attendance was won by Year 5 for the second week running. Well done to both Years 4 and 5.
Have a lovely weekend.
