The children are enjoying their new topics. The older children are even having a topic all about chocolate, learning about how it was invented and the famous Roald Dahl story of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. They are especially looking forward to trying some unusual chocolate recipes!

A sub-group of the governing body are in the process of looking into school travel arrangements. The school travel plan was written in 2009 and the sub-group would like to update the travel information that we have and then use this to formulate an action plan and prioritise improvements. Parents and pupils have been asked to complete a survey which has been developed in conjunction with the school travel advisor for Swindon Borough Council.

As a school, we are having a focus on The Arts and are looking forward to having extra visitors in and activities based around Music, Drama and other arts. Our whole school learn to learn day will be based around ‘George and the Dragon’ this term and we are all excited to see the creative ideas shown by the children. We are also looking forward to having our school sculpture completed which the children were involved with designing last year. The sculpture has been developed by local artist Diccon Dadey. Keep an eye out for it arriving in our school entrance soon!
