The lastweek of term has been exceptionally busy for the children at Worsley Bridge. On Monday Jack and Luke from HeyDay started our week off with a film preview of ‘Things that go trump in night’ and ‘April Doomsday’. Pupils in year 5 have been working with HeyDay and Mrs Lisi to produce the films. The children generate their own ideas, script and star in the end result. The two films hadus all laughing a lot but especially when members of staff popped up in them too!

Later in the day on Monday Mrs Paun took Micah, Polly and Aimee into London to City Hall to participate in the Maths 24 challenge. Over 50 teams competed against each in a series of maths challenges including quick fire calculation rounds and code breaking. We are exceptionally proud of the children for representing Worsley Bridge so well and we will be looking out for next year’s team!

Despite the rain yesterday, pupils in year 2 did not let that spoil their enjoyment and learning. The Scoot Sure Road Safety Team joined the children for the morning to teach them a number of safety tips while out and about on their scooters. The pupils who participated were a credit to the school as they listened carefully and demonstrated exemplary behaviour.

The children wanted to say a big thank you to the PTFA and their teachers for organising the two Easter discos we had this week. The children arrived at school in their best party outfits and danced the afternoon away. Lots of hard work goes into events like these and they raise money for the much appreciated little extras in school. Thank you very much to the PTFA-we hope that lots of you will join the next meeting at 2pm on the 10th May.

Today has been full of fun as children arrived in a wonderful array of costumes to celebrate World Book Day with a grammar themed twist! The adults have been so impressed at the thought, imagination and creativity that has gone into some of the outfits. In assembly this morning teachers picked out their favourite outfits for children to parade on the stage. Albie in year 1 stole the show with his ‘Comma comma comma chameleon’ outfit! Well done Worsley Bridge-you have made us all proud of you yet again! Beckenham bookshop are still accepting ‘World Book Day’ vouchers so why not head there in the break.

Today we will sadly be saying goodbye to Mrs Zgierska after 5 years of dedicated service at Worsley Bridge. Mrs Zgierska will be leaving the busy world of Beckenham for a taste of quieter life in Macclesfield and also spending time back in Poland with her family. We sincerely wish her all the very best and look forward to hearing all about her new adventures.

Mr Lam, our school caretaker for the past 4 years will also be departing today. He too is seeking the opportunity for a quieter life and will be relocating to be closer to members of his family. We would like to thank both Mr Lam and Mrs Zgierska for all their hard work over the past few years. You will both be sorely missed!

All that is left for me to say after anothervery busy and successful term is Happy Easter and we look forward to seeing you on TUESDAY 23rd APRIL. Thankyou all for your continued support.

Mrs Williams
