Robert Bakewell Remembers
All of the children helped make poppies for the local 'Songster' project and have made their own poppy garden of remembrance outside.
A Big thanks to all
What a great last day and week I had at school. The Lego Team were outstanding and dominated the robot table; the children in school were marvellous and gave me lots of cuddles and love; and, all the parents, governors and staff made my last week truly memorable.
I have got to say that for the very first time I did not want to go to school on Thursday.... I was dreading it. After 27 years in a dream job it was time to go. The staff and children did a fantastic job of a leaving assembly. It will take a long time to go through the cards which are true works of art. Well done to each class! Thanks for all the kind words and presents. All of them are greatly appreciated and treasured.
It has been a pleasure to work at the school and I hope that everyone there goes on to bigger and better things. As I was dressed as a cracker in the last assembly no-one could see the great hole developing behind it. Luckily I have tons of chocolate and biscuits to fill it. I have received so many kind words and gifts from you all.

GREAT DAY OUT IN BRISTOL
Well not a bad day in Bristol but not what we wanted. We came sixth in the robotics with a great score of 148. This I think made us the top primary school. We were knocked out in the semi finals by the eventual winners. The top three teams had far better runs and machines on the tables so we can be very proud. I have come back without my glasses but apart from that I hope that all is well with the team and supporters. Special thanks to Mrs Hurdley who did the school proud. Again thanks to Mr H who also supported ably from the sidelines. Our parental support was superb. Thanks to all the parents that came and supported the team and did the long drive there and the long wet dark drive back. I hope we all got back safely. I am tingling with pride as to the conduct and performance of the team. We got three scores above 100 and that is fantastic. BUT... Next year can we go three better and get into the bronze medal position?
Now for the year 3's and 4's who will be tutored by the team as they take part in JFLL which happens at our school on June 12th ! Children in those years will be asked to come along to sessions in the Summer Term.
LEGO FINALS IN BRISTOL
As the finals are in Bristol on a Sunday morning starting at 8a.m. I feel that we need an early start and we need to stop in the area. I have booked a lot of rooms in the area. We can take as many supporters as we want - no tickets this year. All of this is on hold but if folk want more detail then e-mail me. Lots of accommodation has been snapped up. Mr Simmons.
