One of our lovely Year 6 pupils, Edith, has recently undertaken an emotional journey as she and her family took part in a commemorative D-Day walk in France to mark the 75th anniversary. Edith, we are so proud of you! Thank you for sharing your story and photos with us. Here’s what Edith had to say:
“I am Edith Scanlan from Year 6. On the 6th of June I completed the walk that my great grandad took as a 47 Royal Marine Commando on D-Day in World War Two. I did it with my Mum, Dad, Granny, Uncle and Cousin. It was tiring but I would do it again every year for my great grandad. The walk included fields and back roads but the great thing was meeting all the new Commandos and seeing all the old veterans. We walked as part of X troop and discovered afterwards that this was also my great grandad’s troop on the day. Thank you for all my family who took part and to my grandad, who unfortunately couldn’t do the walk this year, and to my great grandad – I love you!”

Amazing Achievements Assembly: Friday 15th February, 2019
An atmosphere of celebration filled the air on Friday, as Amazing Achievements were awarded to pupils. This was an especially joyous occasion as their parents, or other family members, were invited to join this special event. Children have received awards for particular achievements, such as producing fabulous work in art, English or maths. Others may have achieved something truly special outside of school, which has had an effect on their school life. Yet others may have received an award for their exemplary attitude towards school life in general. Children in Nursery and Reception held their own Amazing Achievements Assembly on Friday afternoon and received their certificates from Mrs Holden.
Whatever the reason for your award, we congratulate you wholeheartedly! Well done!
Congratulations to children who received an Amazing Achievement Award last week!
