As the wind whips across the quad and the leaves seem to move in waves, we welcomed the children back today. It is back to our routines, back to school, setting goals for the start of a new decade.
And the months ahead reach out to us with all of those annual events we often enjoy (World Book Day, Poetry Recital/Sports Day) and sometimes just have to put up with (new Yr 4 times table test, SATS) yet life in school is rarely - if every - predictable.
Today, Yr 3 welcomed a new teacher and former pupil: Mr Good, while Miss Watson - our new apprentice - has joined our FSU team. The children have helped them settle in - displaying the kindness and good manners we are used to in our school.
This week is Design Technology week, with lots of sporting opportunities thrown in around it: street dance, gymnastics and basketball, with Year 5 competing in the Hoops4Health competition.
With only 6 weeks before the next holiday, we have some exciting plans for the start of the school year and look forward to squeezing in as much as possible...happy new year.
