Well done to the pupils in Year 5 who this week ventured far away from home for their first school residential experience. Children from Mrs Edge’s and Mrs Turner’s class travelled to Runway’s End in Aldershot for a 2 night stay. The pupils relished the chance to try new outdoor activities such as abseiling and canoeing, and indoor activities such as archery and caving. For many, it was their first experience of staying away from home without family members, so this really was a journey into the unknown in a variety of ways. The children also turned their hands to table setting, plus washing up and drying up after meal times, showing good team spirit and application. I hope all the pupils have a restful weekend, and my thanks go to Mrs Edge, Mrs Turner, Mrs Wibberly, Mrs Pearson and Mrs Knight who all gave up time to stay overnight with the children.
Finally, my assembly this morning was about how to stay safe on-line. As the nights draw in and the weather worsens, children may find themselves having more screen time, so do please take the time to talk to your children about how they can keep themselves safe in the virtual world.
Mr R Cunningham
