The children really enjoy their time with Diego, our much loved and very friendly school dog who joins us on Wednesdays. Here he is proudly wearing his new "school uniform"! 

Forest School 

The children are enjoying den building and hunting for natural "woodland treasures" in the wonderful outdoor environment. One child commented "I like building dens because we work as a team" with another adding "it has made our class's teamwork stronger with everyone, not just our friends". 

Trip to the Houses of Parliament 

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be at the centre of British politics as they visited the Houses of Parliament during a very historic week. They were fascinated by the protesters lining the streets and the tented village that had been set up for the press. They met a number of well known figures around Westminster and saw the opening ceremony of the House of Commons, when the mace was carried in procession led by the Sergeant at Arms and Speaker. The children then enjoyed an education session where they held their own mock elections and chose a new Prime Minister.

Great Western Air Ambulance Visit 
The children met representatives from the  
the air ambulance service - Charlie Bear was an undoubted hit! 
Here are some thoughts from the children afterwards:- 
It is very important for us to know about the air ambulance and how fast it is so we know it can come to us speedily if we are in distress. Freddie 
The air ambulance cars can get to us at night when the helicopter cannot fly. The bear loves to dab! Luca 

Summer Music Concert 

Our annual Summer Music Concert saw a huge display of talent on show, from drummers to pianists and from groups of singers to bands of flautists.  
Thank you, children, for making this such a memorable and special occasion. 

Road Safety Campaign, National Road Safety Week 

During National Road Safety Week, some local officers from Avon and Somerset Police visited the school and talked to all of the children about the dangers of the road and how to cross the road safely. All classes took part in a workshop session around the dangers that are encountered on the road, how to cross the road safely and how to be safe when out and about. 
We are also urging parents to take extra care whilst driving past our school; please remember that at drop-off and pick-up times there is a 20mph speed limit in place along Station Road. Our School Council has told us how they think people drive too quickly past our school and have expressed their concern that a child could get knocked down, so please slow down and help keep all of our children safe. 
As the children learn about how to keep safe on and near roads, please support them as they put their new knowledge to use.
