Reception Class had an exciting visit from local postman Mr Clay this week. The children listened attentively as he told them about his job. The highlight though, was definitely exploring his van!
Year 3 and 4 Trip to Ufton Court
On Tuesday 17th, years 3 and 4 went on their school trip to Ufton Court. When they arrived, Year 4 were met by Julius Flavius ( A roman soldier) who took them to train for the Roman army. They did lots of other exciting activities such as building walls using the wattle technique. They finished the day by acting out the battle between the Celts and Romans. In 4W, we wrote letters to Julius Flavius thanking him for the day. Below is Mia's letter.
Dear Julius Flavius,
I'm writing to you because the day was full of fun, joy and excitement. The day was great! I would like to share with you what I enjoyed the most.
My favourite bit was when you taught us the tortoise formation, the shield wall and the rest with the shields. It was so much fun. Also the story was fun. I was a Celt and I think the Romans won!
The thing I disliked was the wool weaving because it was a bit tricky to thread it through the spindle but the rest was fun. You made the day funnier than any other day I had since last week. I really enjoyed being a Celt!
I enjoyed my day with you. Did you enjoy your day with us too? I would like to ask you a few questions.
Is your real name Julius Flavius?
Do you like your job?
Do you live at Ufton Court?
How many children come to Ufton Court?
You're the best soldier I've seen. Thank you for teaching us about the Romans. You told us more than we know at the moment.

Reminder - Doors Close at 8.55am
Several children are already beginning to arrive late to school after 8.55am and after doors have closed and registration is complete. This causes considerable to disruption to the start of the school day for teachers and children in classrooms where teaching activities may have already started, the kitchen where lunch numbers have been taken and also the school office with children needing to be accompanied to classrooms and often in to assembly. Please try to leave extra time in the morning to arrive before classroom doors close.
Reminder - Gastric Upset
Please note that a child with any kind of gastric upset should not return to school until at least 48 hours has passed since their last episode of sickness or diarrhoea. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
Please do respect the role of our school office which is there to support the smooth running of the school. It is not appropriate to ask office staff to take personal messages or to use the office as a post room or as a drop off or collection point for personal business. Office staff are always happy to help with school business.
