We are having some excellent summer weather at the moment. Let’s hope it continues for the rest of the holiday and beyond…
Year 4 will definitely be hoping for continuing warm weather when we return to school because they are going to be selling ice pops during the first few weeks back.
The ice pops will cost 40p and details of where and when they will be on sale will be displayed on posters around the school when everyone returns.
The money raised will be used to pay for a variety of activities planned for a special Year 4 Ancient Romans theme day.
Our Family Centre Stay and Play group did a sponsored Toddle Waddle recently to raise money for the Barnardo’s children’s charity today. They walked around Wardown park and finished off with a lovely picnic. The Toddle Waddle raised over £100. Thank you everyone.
Eid Mubarak to everyone who is celebrating this festival today. We hope you have a happy time with your friends and families.
A group of children got the chance to visit London recently for the third stage of the Tour de France cycle race, which this year began in Yorkshire. The third stage went from Cambridge to The Mall in London.
The children travelled into London on the underground, and spent some time in Trafalgar Square where there was a fan park set up. Here the children had time to watch the race on the big screen and take a look at some of the attractions. Each child got to have their picture taken in front of the green screen looking as they had just won the Tour de France.
After this they walked down Whitehell past Downing Street and towards the Houses of Parliament, where they stopped and waited for the procession of sponsors and team vehicles to come down the route, throwing out lots of free promotional goods into the crowd.
From there they walked into St James Park and down The Mall, again watching the race on the big screen. Each child then took part in a 400m sprint event on bikes. Their times were logged to see who was the fastest of the day. Corey in Bluebell class was the fastest of the group, sprinting the 400m in 29.12 seconds.
After this they made their way back to the underground station in Leicester Square to return to school.
