We are at the end of the week yet again! This one started with a fabulous assembly from 6W who told the story of Rose Blanche, a young girl, who grew up in Germany during World War II. This very tragic tale not only demonstrates the devastating effects that war can take on any society it also highlights the terrible persecution of many innocent bystanders. The children tackled these issues very well and left us with plenty to think about. But despite the serious content of the assembly they lifted our spirits by finishing with a war themed song which they sang beautifully. Well done 6W.

After watching the assembly we had a discussion at our staff meeting about how we would mark the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War 1 and we have decided to create a river of poppies on the front lawn. We would like to ask for your help with this task. Please can you send your child into school with the bottom of a large plastic bottle (please do not send in the whole thing as we are not in the position to recycle the unused section). Ideally the bottle should have curves like the ones in this picture. We are going to paint the bottles in school so the end of the bottle will be all we need.

There has been lots of excitement outside my office this week as we have seen the completion of a new display board that recognises the high standards of presentation some children achieve in their work.  It was lovely to hear the children and staff members talking about the work on display and the beautiful handwriting being show cased. We will be introducing a new set of awards to encourage children to take pride in their work and I am looking forward to awarding in our next celebration assembly.

Thank you all very much for your kind donations for our harvest collection. Bromley Foodbank will be thrilled. We will be delivering the goods next week so if you would like to donate it’s not too late. Lastly, before I sign off don’t forget that Monday is non-uniform day in support of the NSPCC. Please don’t forget your £1 donation!

Wishing you all a very relaxing weekend.
