On Monday 14th May Reception went on a trip to Lee Valley Park Farm. The weather was very kind to us and we had a lovely day out. We started with visiting the guinea pigs and giant rabbits which everyone thought were very cute. We were treated to a very informative and entertaining birds of prey demonstration – we were very impressed by how fast some of the birds were and by how they could catch food with their claws right in the air. We also saw meercats, reindeer and goats. We were able to get up close to a ‘fancy rat’ and a bearded dragon but we all decided to keep our distance from the Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches! We were even able to feed some lambs with a bottle and we discovered that they are very soft but also very strong. We managed to squeeze in some extra fun activities in amongst all our learning as we jumped on a huge bouncy ‘pillow’ and took a toboggan ride down a big hill – even the teachers joined in! We finished off our day out by enjoying an ice lolly before heading back to school. What a great day!
Memories of fun in the sun while you enjoy the beautiful weather we are having.
We recently had some newly hatched chicks visiting the nursery class and the juniors were keen to get a look in!
For those of you who like to know, here is a summary of the highlights of our provisional GCSE results. Provisionally 80% of our pupils attained C to A* (Levels 4 to 9).
We had 5 pupils sitting. 100% of the pupils scored level 5 (good pass top end C and bottom end B) and above in Maths and also in either English Language or Literature. In Science 86% of the results were C and above and 57% A and above. Overall 39.6% of all the results were As (level 7) and above.
We are very pleased with everyone’s results. Some overcame struggles but pushed through. One amazed us all and achieved 8 A*s including our first level 9 in Mathematics.
These are the first results to include the new level systems and more demanding syllabuses. We have to thank the teachers for navigating these changes and the parents for supporting their children at this time. Our hope and prayers are the pupils will take everything else they have learned at the school and be a blessing to the schools and colleges they go on to now. Everyone got their places.
Our school musical was a great success. Years 4-9 put on two evening performances of Daniel – a hard act to swallow. The story was taken from the Biblical account of Daniel in the Bible. The costumes, scenery and props were impressive. The acting was convincing and the singing was moving. Very well done to all!
