Healthy Eating Week
Next week the school we will be taking part in national Healthy Eating week along with over 4 million other young people across the country.
Each site have their own classroom activities planned whilst the dining rooms will be giving away healthy alternatives to eat or drink and there may be some yucky colours involved! The exciting event kicks off with the catering department throwing down the gauntlet to all our pupils who visit our dining rooms to see who can eat the healthiest, as the dining experience is about choice. Points are ‘till’ allocated through purchases but be careful as one wrong item could wipe out the score but pupils won’t know until the end! The healthiest eater on each site will receive not only a certificate but a “healthy” prize.
So please encourage your child to try, taste, get involved and enjoy.
PTA Summer Fete – Tickets now on sale
Tickets can be purchased via the Payment Portal with a prize worth £175 if purchase before the event. A family ticket is £5, each extra adult entry is £2 and unaccompanied children £1. Further details can be found here.
So far, we have raised money to buy new books, a new stage, support pupils voice and the amazing last day musical workshop that all our children will really enjoy. What we need now is all your names on the rota distributed by your year group rep - this is something that really can not be done without you. If you can not make it, maybe your partner, husband, mother in-law, parents, friends... would like to do.
TOYS - Reception are now collecting all toys for the Summer Fete. Please remember they have to be in good condition (nearly new). BOOKS %u200B- Year 2 need donations for those books that you know you don't need anymore. This can include stationary (notebooks) that are in good condition.
A place for donations will be ready for you to leave just outside the dining room from Wednesday 14 June.

News from the Sports Master
Sadly the wet weather stopped the U9 fixture going ahead against Chesham Prep this Tuesday. Wednesday was our ISA Athletics, the full news article is below. This Friday sees our U11A team and our U10A & U11B teams travel away on cricket tour to the west country and the south coast respectively. The pupils in year 5&6 who are not on tour have an action packed couple of days planned with outward bounds activities and an overnight camp at Longridge.
Although we have two Rabbit Award winners this week, only 1 will be mentioned in the bulletin as the other winner is currently on an outward bound weekend!
Very well done to Toby Jeffery in Year 1 who has won the rabbit award this week for being such a wonderful role model for his peers and for being so helpful to staff.
