Congratulations to all the children chosen to receive the Summer 2017 Golden Board Award.
Their work will be displayed in the entrance foyer by the school office.
To celebrate our school’s 50th Anniversary, the children have created pieces of art inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. The children enjoyed exploring artwork by Lichtenstein, Warhol and Oldenburg and designing their own sculptures and prints.
Our school hall became an art gallery for the afternoon and the work was enjoyed by many.

Snapchat have update their app to include Snap Maps, a location tool that allows users to view the location of other Snapchat users. The app opts in to this automatically if you follow the ‘what’s new’ feed and therefore, to prevent people from knowing where you are, you need to opt out. This is called Ghost Mode.
Please see the videos on YouTube that explain more about the update and what you can do to keep yourself and others safe.

We had 10 eggs delivered on Tuesday. We are now very pleased to announce the arrival of 10 fluffy chicks. All the children will have the opportunity to handle and observe the chicks next week. Please see our school blog for the chicks’ adventures.
On Friday 24th March, Reception was taken over by Pirates! The crew of the Jolly Ladybird and the Jolly Butterfly learnt how to speak like a pirate, how to climb the rigging, walk the plank and how to throw cannon balls at the coconut trees. They followed maps and clues to find the treasure and made golden doubloons. They made pirate hats and ships biscuit and learnt to sing pirate songs. Everyone had lots of fun!
On Wednesday 1st March we took two teams of four children from Years 3,4,5 and 6 to the first round of the Croydon Schools Gymnastic Competition. This is a Key Steps competition which involves a floor routine and vault. Both teams performed extremely well, and came second in their respective groups. This meant that they qualified for the finals which was a massive achievement. By qualifying we now had a chance to win and go through to the Youth Games in July.
Both teams gave an excellent performance under intense pressure, fighting off some very stiff competition. This resulted in both of them being placed second, with a very marginal difference of 0.1 between the top two scores.
They all received a very well deserved silver medal and certificate, and we look forward to competing again next year.
Our children enjoyed an unexpected treat when Joshua Buatsi, bronze medal boxer at the Rio Olympics and local boy, visited one of our school assemblies. Joshua showed both humility and charisma in describing his sporting experiences and influences. He answered the children’s many questions with patience and skill and left our whole school community feeling that we had been privileged to meet a very special and inspirational young man.
A special thanks to Mr Gallagher, one of our foundation governors, who made Joshua’s visit possible.
