While in school , Penny Hunt took the opportunity to look at work displayed in KS2 corridors . She was very interested in the Sentence Ladder section and really liked the art work inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's painting,"Starry Night".

Before leaving , she also said hello to the two new girls , Hetty and Betty Chicken . They seemed to have settled in to their luxurious coop very well.

Hello Skyflyers !!!! I came in to your Science lesson today ... I really enjoyed it and could tell that you did too . You were carrying out an experiment to discover the distance objects of different weights would travel , after being rolled down a ramp . I was so interested in hearing your theories ... I wonder what final conclusions you came to ? I wish I could have stayed to the end of your lesson . ( PH )

Penny Hunt came in to school after you had all gone home . She wanted to look at your work ,displayed on the corridor walls.She could see how busy you have all been . What interesting and wonderful writing and art work she saw !!!She was really impressed to see how well you are doing , climbing your sentence ladders.

Some of the year groups have been thinkng about people like Sir Nicholas Winton  and Nina Simone , who have in different ways fought against prejudice and race hatred . You have done some really thoughtful written work about them.

She went also to KS1 , where she was absolutely enchanted by the fabulous art work she saw . There were lovely portraits painted in the style of Pablo Picasso... Racing Rockets , you obviously understood the style very clearly .The 3D models of people who help in the community ,made by Reception Rangers really made her smile . Well done to all of you... She cant wait to come again to see more good work .  Enter

CR and PH came in to school to interview groups of pupils in KS2 .There were between 4 and 6 at a time from each year group .The focus of the meetings was to find out how the pupils felt about their school and if they felt safe .

It was such an enjoyable experience for both Governors and the second time they had done it  The pupils  were extremely articulate and gave well considered and thoughtful answers to questions .

To summarize , all the children feel safe in school and the playground . They know who to go to if they have a problem that they can not sort out themselves.The governors were very impressed by the youngsters ,who were very thoughtful , listened to each other and supported and questioned opinions of others . Both governors are looking forward to talking to KS1 pupils very soon Enter text...

What a wonderful way to start a week. CR and KL went to St. Mary`s Church to join children, staff, Rev. Mary, mums, grandparents,aunties and  a few dads in a service to celebrate Mothering Sunday. What a celebration it turned out to be. The children sang beautifully. They had written poems and prose to tell us all how they felt about their mums and how much they loved them. The children were a credit  to their teachers ,the school and last but not least to their parents.A most enjoyable morning.

CR, KL,LM,SM and PH attended your Harvest Festival Service in school today . What a massive turn out of parents , grandparents, babies and friends there was !!!! Standing room only ,.... the hall was packed !!!

We thought the children were brilliant and loved their songs and poems .Every year group contributed and did their best .It was very impressive to see all the generous gifts of food that had been donated . We believe it will be divided between Telford food Bank and old people in our own community, nominated by the children ,.

It was lovely to see Reverend Mary , always so interesting to listen to .On the general theme of the service .....THANK YOU !!!!!
