Patina – the Big Reveal

This afternoon, we have learned the theme for our Patina parade and have been getting some ideas on paper for costumes, music and structures. We have also met our artist who will help us get it all together!

Chalk the Pavements

This afternoon we’ve been celebrating Chalk the Pavements Day. Mrs Edwards read ‘Angel Pavement’ by Quentin Blake to the whole school and then everyone headed outside to create our own pavement art. The playground looks very colourful tonight!

Year 6 joined fellow year 6s from Plumpton and Hamsey to celebrate the end of those SATs. We spent a beautiful sunny day at Plumpton school, sword-fighting, playing games and enjoying a picnic. A wonderful end to a long week!


Year 5 spent this morning baking 120 cupcakes and making buttercream. This afternoon, after a Royal Wedding picnic, everyone in the school decorated one of the cupcakes. Lots of different decorating ingredients were available. Amy and Alfie were voted by the rest of Year 5 as the overall year group winners. A great way to celebrate tomorrow’s Royal Wedding!
