It was good to see so many residents in school this week for the consultation evening about parking issues in the local area.Every resident had a chance to voice their opinion to Andrew Leighton from the Highways Department and vote for their preferred option.If you know of any residents who haven’t had the chance to vote please call in to school and collect a voting form.
Residents asked that parents could be reminded not to walk over their front gardens, park on or across their driveways, park on pavements or park across the crossing point on Milverton Drive.
Pacesetters have run cricket tournaments for Y3 and Y4 this week.It’s great to see the children developing their skills and team work outside in the sunshine and having the opportunity to play against local schools.
We had visitors from Hong Kong, America, Holland and the University of Northampton in school this week.They were impressed with the children who were engaged in their activities and shared their learning. They liked the story maps and approach to writing and were also treated to an impromptu performance of ‘It’s a hard knock life’ from Annie by Y6 who were in rehearsals.Afterwards they discussed our approach to inclusion, nurture and The Bridge and Mrs Troop explained how everything was interconnected and woven together.
Y2 had a wonderful day at the zoo on Wednesday where they learnt that “flamingo’s stand on one leg to save energy because the water is very cold”.They also said “We were so lucky to see the bush dogs that are semi aquatic and quite shy creatures”.
