 Principal’s Corner

It was wonderful to be back in church for our Harvest Festival. The church was packed and thanks must go to all who helped. The singing was great! All the produce was very much appreciated by the Leominster Food Bank and will go to those in need.

In the classroom the Infants are continuing to study the Great Fire of London and the Painted Ladies have now been released. Meanwhile the Lower Juniors are still in the Tropical Rain Forests and are beginning to understand the importance of the forest as a habitat and also in climate change and carbon capture. In Science the tea cake skeleton challenge was a bit risky but great fun. Well done Mrs Shaw for all the excitement.

The Upper Juniors are still in the Victorian Era and are enjoying finding out about Victorian life. At this time William Morris and Art Nouveau came to the fore so the Juniors are designing their own wall paper. The Year 6’s will be taking SATs this May and Mrs Eckley as usual is on the ball in her preparations.

The project to put solar panels on the school roof is progressing, although being a listed building very, very slowly. Finally I am pleased to announce that the Governors have appointed Mrs Warboys who will be starting in January. We wish her well. Don’t teachers like policemen just seem to get younger and younger. A great find and good luck from us all.

Sport

Mike’s Sports Club continues to be a great success and will continue throughout the term. The Infants have enjoyed their visits to the pool on Fridays and are making very good progress. After half term it is the turn of the Juniors.

Thankyou

A big thankyou from Leominster Food Bank for your Harvest donations. Very much a Christian act. Well done!
