The PTFA have decided to run a competition for the children so that they can be part of the recording this moment in history. The task is to design a flag to record what lockdown means to them. There will be a £20 book token prize for each key stage; the overall winner will have their design made as a flag to be displayed at school. There are two templates to choose from. Entries to the email@example.com email address by 10th June. By sending in an entry parents consent to the design (not children's name or details) being shared on the ptfa Facebook page.
RADIO 2 500 WORDS COMPETITION UPDATE
I am delighted to let you know that yet again we have had major competition success - this time in a National competition. Emily L (yr 5) and Brendan (yr 6) were amongst the shortlisted entrants in the second phase of the competition. Their stories were amongst the 5000 selected from an incredible 135,000! Congratulations to both of our talented writers.
UPDATE REGARDING 100 WORD AMAZING ADVENTURES
I have just heard that the publication of your mini-sagas has been delayed and will take place on 12 June. Your copies of the book will go out to home addresses if that is the option you selected, or kept at school until it reopens.
Important message from the parents that organise the Yr 6 leavers treats:
"The parents organising the leavers hoodies etc are still hoping to go ahead with as many of the normal year 6 leavers' things as possible. We are looking to place the order for the year 6 leavers' hoodies on 8th May. With this in mind can parents please return their order forms and cash to either Sarah Hooper, Kim Hill or Amanda Davies. If you didn't receive the letter and form please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. The double decker bus is still booked and a deposit has been paid. If we are back to normal or as close as possible then the intention is for the Yr 6 leavers to still have this treat too."

KILVE COURT RESIDENTIAL - OCTOBER 2019
The Year 6 children had a wonderful time at Kilve Court. Although the weather was a little disappointing, it didn't deter us from making the most of our few days away. The children put their skills of resilience and teamwork to the test, and showed courage and determination on the various activities. In addition to a long beach walk, fossil hunting, a field walk and shelter-building, the children also participated in abseiling, climbing, grass-sledging and archery. In the evenings, after more outdoor adventures (and a quiz on our second night), the children were happy (and even eager!) to go to bed. A very successful trip with a great year group!
