Welcome and News

Hello and welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful May half term.
 
We have started the final term of the year with a fantastic trip to Buckingham Church community lunch. We have wonderfully kind and compassionate children in our school who are conscientious about helping others, some who are less fortunate than them. St Peter’s and St Paul’s church in Buckingham hosts a community lunch every Tuesday that is open to all. Diners are given a free hot meal and desert free of charge and the weekly event is funded by volunteers and the Church. 
 
We spent Monday afternoon baking lemon drizzle cake, orange and blueberry traybake and yummy, sticky flapjack. On Tuesday a minibus kindly donated by Sir Thomas Freemantle School took us to Buckingham church. We had a great time meeting the diners and sharing our cakes. See some pictures below from our time at the church. We can't wait to go again next year. 
We have also had a fantastic trip to Loughton Manor First School this week for 'Singing Friends'. We met some of the Year 1s and Year 2s there, had lunch and a playtime with them then spent the afternoon singing lots of songs and playing different musical games. Both school's children were fantastic in introducing themselves and making new friends.
 
Also, when we arrived we were wished "Eid Mubarak" by a teacher and some children. We had learnt about Eid this week in assembly and Claudia, Maggie and others were excited to spot some girls with henna designs on their hands. 
 
See below some pictures from our fantastic afternoon. 
We can now reveal that our TOP SECRET news last term was in fact: Secret Agent Training (SATs). The children were recruited by the mysterious Agent CM002, who believed they had the appropriate qualities for secret agents.
 
We created our own secret agent badges, including code names, and undertook many, many practice missions and training sessions.
 
 
You may have heard Kraven Thunderball practicing her mathematical reasoning and Lightning Carter solving code and picking out information from different texts.
 
 
At the end of the term the children completed 4 different secret agent tests. They were NOT easy and the agents showed plenty of wisdom and endurance. They showed the grit and determination (and ate some much needed energy boosting biscuits) to complete their tests with flying colours.
 
 
We are very proud of their hard work and are confident that we have helped to train worthy secret agents. If you see Spartan Nitro or Trigger Quicksilver out in the field, know that they are focused on a secret job.
