This afternoon, school held a special assembly led by School Council Representatives, Lana, Simrath and Zain. They did an amazing job!
Every class took turns in sharing what they had found out about the Queen during a specific decade.
It was very interesting!
Today, lunch was just a bit different from usual. We held a street party as part of our Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations.
Children had the opportunity to have a party lunch with sandwiches, crisps, veggie sticks, chocolate crispie cakes and jelly and ce-cream while music played in the background.
The school hall decorated and ready for the children to arrive to have their party lunch.
Children from the 2 year old nursery to Year 6 enjoying the street party.
A big thank you to all the staff that made this event possible.
This week children will be learning all about the Queen, with every class being allocated a decade to focus on.
This morning (Monday) members of School Council started the week’s celebrations off with an assembly explaining what was going to be happening and announcing which class had which decade as they were picked out of the hat.
There will also be a street party lunch on Thursday and on Friday everyone can come to school dressed in red, white and blue (colours of the Union Jack). The week’s celebrations will end with another assembly where children from each class will share their learning.

This afternoon School Council attended a workshop and were challenged to come up with some ideas for the new school prospectus.
The School Council was divided into three groups and after a lot of ‘brainstorming’ they produced three ideas boards which each of the groups then presented and discussed at the end of the session.
Watch this space to find out if any of their ideas will be used in the new prospectus.
