Head Teacher's Message 21st Oct 2016

Dear parents and children,
Thank you for your donations for this year’s Harvest Festival. The staff from the Bielefeld Tafel were overwhelmed by your generosity. I enjoyed the children’s presentations during our special assembly. It was lovely to witness such confidence and as I said on the day I am really looking forward to seeing this develop over the year.
The last half term has whizzed by and we have now reached the holidays. I think the children have settled well into the school year and have worked hard. I am sure you will hear positive reports from your child’s teacher when you meet them after the holidays. In the meantime I would like to wish all children and staff an enjoyable break and look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 31st October.

Team Points

The answer to last week’s question could have been Titania, Puck, Oberon or Bottom. Well done to the Red Team.

Next Question for after half term:
Q: How many plays did Shakespeare write?

Head Teacher's Message 14th Oct 2016

Dear parents and children,
This year the local garrison schools have organised a full sporting calendar which will involve us hosting events here and travelling to our partner schools in Sennelager, Paderborn and G├╝tersloh. In preparation for this Mr Mason is running football club for KS 2 and children in years 4, 5 and 6 have been enjoying rugby sessions with Mr Hale and Mr Critchley.  We are extremely grateful that we have volunteers willing to give up their time to help us- so a big THANK YOU.



School Council

At this week’s school council meeting the children have agreed the following for Children In Need.
1. Children can choose to come to school in pyjamas, smart clothes, a costume or their uniform. They should bring 1 euro as a donation.
2. There will be some food on sale- suggestions cakes, ice cream, toffee apples
3. They would like to organise some games and charge children for taking part
4. They would also like any staff (or SGC) volunteers who are happy to be involved in wet sponge throwing – I said I would ask!
They have also voted for a “special table” at lunchtimes. This was suggested by Y1 and 2 members- more to follow
I am also thinking about the request made by Y2 re adding curtains and windows to the house outside!!

Head Teacher's Message 7th October 2016

Dear parents and children,
It’s been a short but busy week for the children. We were visited by the Playtime Theatre Company and we enjoyed the performance which featured six of the children. During the afternoon KS 2 children took part in a drama workshop.
As I write we are getting ready for our Fijian day. I will include some photographs in next week’s newsletter.
Finally we are very proud of our Year 6 writers this week. I have included two of their poems for you to read.

Land of Hope and Glory

The optimistic dream of hope warmed through my veins as I marched to war.
Hope was like a never ending water-fall rushing through my veins like a fast blood river so it could force me to war.
Hope was a source of happiness making me proud for my dad and my cousins who too had joined.
Caring curious hope made me think everything was going to be exciting.
Hope led me to a life choice: Where would I end up?


Fiery Fearlessness

Fearlessness was an emerald of bravery-a precious gem in my soul-shining as I signed up with my chums.
Fearlessness was an ally; it led me to be victorious-thus keeping democracy in place.
Energising, courageous fearlessness whispered: ‘Will you follow my guidance and find courage my boy?’

Lost property

We have an incredible amount of lost property. I am thinking of opening a shop!
If you are missing any items please pop into school and have a look through the rails.
Thank you.
