Milepost 2 recently held a competition with Mrs Haywood, the school catering manager, for the best Christmas biscuit. The best 3 would then have the satisfaction of their biscuits being made and served at the school Christmas lunch. 

Yesterday, winners Lillian, Poppy and Nelly were invited to the hall for a sneak preview before the lunchtime hordes. The girls were all very proud of their creations and they didn't last long on the plates of their schoolmates! Well done girls - McVities watch out!

This term we've had an added focus on displays in the school corridors. Displays are a key feature in any school as they both promote and celebrate children's learning, as well as being a learning resource themselves (within classrooms). Our teachers and teaching assistants have put a lot of time and care into showcasing some of our pupils' best learning this term. Just look at the results...

We held 7 Christmas performances in total (including school rehearsals), and for many the Key Stage 1 performance was a standout highlight. A parent was kind enough to hand me a CD of images taken from one of the two performances at the school Christmas Fayre today - sorry, I didn't catch your name!

Last night our PTA held an annual favourite for our pupils: The School Disco! Children turned out in their droves, dressed to the nines and ready to bop the night away (well, for an hour anyway!) The music was loud, the moves were smooth, and the behaviour was impeccable - well done children.

I mentioned in the Head's Tweet module that we have received this year's Year 5 Cognitive Ability Test scores back. The tests are used to assess children's reasoning in 3 areas: Verbal, Quantitative and Non-verbal...

 

What an Appeal!

As you may have seen walking up the drive in the mornings and afternoons, a few of our brave Year 6's have been enduring the elements throughout November in order to take part in this year's Poppy Appeal...

Due to ever-shrinking budgets, we rely heavily on the hard work of our PTA to fund essential parts of the children's learning in school i.e. computers, reading resources and classroom equipment. Currently, the response to parents volunteering to help out at the Christmas Fair has been such that it won't be able to take place. Please, if you are able to help with the Christmas Fair on Saturday 10th December contact Nicki Palmer on 07854 685261.

WANTED: Christmas tree, tall (12-15 feet) for a caring Christian home. Must settle in school halls and adapt to different temperatures and smells (school dinners, mainly). Crucial that it behaves around children and enjoys being decorated and gawped at. Would prefer it if very reasonably priced or even FREE (no Scrooge intended!), if previous owner is in festive spirits(!) Can you help brighten the lives of 320 children and a large team of staff by Wednesday 30th November? If so, you're an angel... please get in touch!
