Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Diary Dates

Elm class are going swimming as normal in the afternoon and the basketball team are taking part in a tournament at Drapers’ Academy.
On Tuesday 20th at 8.30am Cathy Forrester will be available at the school office for any parents who would like to drop in, if you have any questions or need any advice. Cathy would be more than happy to help.
On Wednesday and Thursday pupils in year 3 & 4 have the opportunity to take part in learn to ride workshops.
On Wednesday 21st we invite all of the parents and carers of children in Willow class to join us for their sharing assembly. In the afternoon LAMDA children will take part in their session as usual and children in years 1 and 2 will be participating in an Easter assembly.
On Thursday 23rd some pupils will be taking part in the London Games Tag Rugby tournament and we wish them the best of luck. There is also a football tournament in the afternoon at Hilldene Primary School.
On Friday 24th year pupils are hosting their Maths party at 9 am and we hope to welcome all parents and carers of year 6 pupils on this occasion. In the afternoon the maths team are travelling to City Hall to take part in the Mayor of London’s Count on Us competition. Good luck to Mrs Gradley and the maths team.

Chef of the Year
We are very proud of our school cook, Michelle Cook who made it all the way to the final in the ‘School Chef of the Year’ competition. Michelle designed her own delicious menu and impressed the judges, but didn’t scoop the top prize on this occasion. However, Michelle has started to come up with bigger and better ideas for next year and we will be rooting for her to go all the way in 2019. Until then, Michelle will continue to cook healthy dishes daily to keep our pupils full and satisfied.
Congratulations on all of your achievements Michelle.

We are absolutely delighted that two of our pupils were finalists  in The Mercury Shopping Mall Mothers’ Day competition. Samanyu Handoo year 5 and Kara Middleton year 3 have both been recognised through the poetry competition, congratulations to you both, we are very proud of you.
