The pupils in class 11 performed their Leavers’ Production 2016 with the support of the children who regularly attend Production Club. They performed evening and matinee performances, which were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who came along. Well done class 11!
Our annual Speech Day was, again, a huge success this year. Mr Pye, the Chairman of Governors and Guest Speaker welcomed the children, parents and staff. Mr Canwell then addressed the children and looked back at the successes of 2015/16. The personal successes of children in classes 7 – 11 were highlighted and awards were presented.
On Friday 10th June all the children celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday with a traditional Street Party. The children in the nursery ate lunch in the nursery garden while those in classes 3 – 11 celebrated together in the Pre-prep playground.
There was music and singing, the children and staff all wore red, white and blue clothing and we all had a wonderful time.
On Wednesday 22nd June, the children in classes 3 to 5 enjoyed Sports Day. Unfortunately, the rain dictated a change of venue to our Assembly Hall but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the children, staff and parents.

Finn Allen from 11S researched different dinosaur characters, made specific design suggestions and sent in drawings as part of the design process for what has become Marks and Spencer’s best selling Easter Egg, selling more than Star Wars and trending on Facebook with thousands of hits.
Finn had seen an early prototype of the design and thought it was too cute and simply not fierce enough.
He sent in his drawings and suggestions to the design team who agreed with him. They also asked him to suggest some potential names.
Finn came up with a short list of names which were then checked for copyright and fed into the design process.
At the end of this SPIKETAIL was born. Read more »
The Managing Director of 360 Play MK, Mr Phillips, kindly invited the children in Class 9 to visit 360 and see first hand what is involved in the process of refurbishing an indoor play park. He talked to the children about all the work that has to take place, before the actual work inside the building can be undertaken. We looked at the drawings that are used during the work by the building contractors, as well as the smaller scale drawings, working back to the original brain storming sessions. The children found the visit very interesting and were eager to ask questions. Our visit perfectly supported their current Design & Technology topic of creating their own room inside a shoebox.
The pupils in class 7 (Year 2) have been looking at ‘People” this half term. They have learnt about different famous people; from artists and sportsmen to authors and explorers. The children took inspiration from Roald Dahl and become authors themselves, reinforced by a trip to The Roald Dahl Museum and the author’s hometown. To conclude this topic, it was ‘Famous People Day’ on Wednesday 23rd March, when the children came to school dressed as a famous person and told their classmates all about the person they had chosen.
