Friday 29th September

Good evening,

What a busy week we’ve had in school!

In forest school, we’ve been searching for the first signs of autumn: looking for changes in leaves and finding acorns and conkers all over the grounds. We’ve been singing autumn songs in assembly ready for our harvest festival. Rev. Laura would like to lead our harvest service on Friday 6th October at 2pm in the church. If you are able to join us, it would be lovely to see you there.

Clubs have started in school at lunch time. Everyone has been busy leading and joining in the activities. We’ve had interesting podcasts created, music played, sports shared and a dance club lead by children in year three. Celebrating the range of talents is really important as we are a school community and learn from each other: ensuring we are inspiring a lifelong love of learning.

We hope that you are able to join us for our open day on Wednesday. We are proud of our school and look forward to sharing work with you. We hope to give tours to visitors and allow friends of the school time to see school in action.

For now, though, have a lovely weekend.

Mrs L. Edgerton

Thank you for your support.


This week we’ve been looking at self-image and identity. We thought about the images that we post online and thought about how we can keep ourselves safe.

In sharing assembly, we shared the focus activities that we’ve been looking at linked to image and identity. Some thought about how we might feel using the internet – from happy and excited to scared and worried. If we are not feeling happy, we thought about who our trusted adults are and how we can use the CEOP link to report.


This week we have been thinking about respect and why we have rules. We thought about whether rules really matter. Starting with the Highway Code, we thought about why we have signs and what why these rules are important. We then applied our same thoughts to the rules we have in school. Everyone shared their ideas about why we have rules – to keep us safe and make sure that everyone enjoys their days in school.

Wrekin maths challenge

Congratulations to Elliot, Robert, Elsie and Ben who represented the school at the Wrekin maths challenge today. They all worked really hard and enjoyed the challenge. Well done team.

Sports Ambassadors

Well done to our sports ambassadors who went to Church Stretton school to have leadership training on Tuesday. We can’t wait for you to organise some tournaments for everyone back at school!

Snacks at break time

We encourage a healthy snack of fruit at break time. KS1 and EYFS have fruit provided.
