KS2 Celebration Assembly

Congratulations to everybody who received a certificate last week. As usual there were many different reasons for teachers to award the certificates, but in every case it was clear how proud they are of you all. Well done to 5G for winning the Attendance Cup with 99.3% and to Stirling for winning the House Cup. They have taken an early lead in this term's competition.

She asked the children to guess how many cubes of sugar they thought were in different drinks. When she told us the answer, we were shocked at quite how much there was. Hopefully the children will remember this next time they choose which drink to have.

Well done to 2B who achieved 99.6% attendance this week.


On a sunny Wednesday afternoon we took 10 KS2 children to Garons Golf Complex to take part in some golf practice and a Tri-Golf competition. The ten children had been part of our tri-golf club over last term but some had never played the real thing. When we arrived the golf pro at Garons taught the children how to putt and then took them to the driving range to hit some balls using a real golf club. Everyone showed great improvement and even performed a trick shot by the end of the session. After the fun of the practice it was down to the serious part and the Tri-Golf competition. The group was split and the competition involved testing putting and chipping skills. When all the scores were a
