It has been a very busy, but successful week!

All of our Year 1 children completed their statutory phonics check with their teachers, our new reception children joined us on Wednesday for their first 'Play to Learn' session, a group of children benefitted from a trip to Longleat, we competed at the local tennis tournament and came 1st, 2nd and 4th, and a group of Year 3 children performed at the Jackdaws 'Picnic and Perform' event.

I am delighted to also share with you that we have appointed Miss Larcombe to teach Ash class next year. She is known to many of the children already as she has been a regular supply teacher for us over the years.

Also, we celebrated the children's hard work and achievements this week. Well done to Jay, Thomas, Paul, Daisy, Hugo, George W, Gideon, Josie, Keiran and Lottie!
