Newsletter 38 - 9th July 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,


What a busy week!

Thank you for all your contributions towards the vehicles that the children are loving making. The creative juices have been flowing this week and we’re all looking forward to our Wacky Races next week.

New Parent Governor

We’re delighted to welcome Mrs Jo Steel onto our Governing Board as parent governor from September.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our current governors for their support, advice and time in their governance roles. Thank you!


It’s a MUFTI day on the last day of term (21st July 1.30pm pick-up). This is our way of saying well done to the children for coping so brilliantly with all that’s come their way these past 18 months. So if your child has a summer birthday, they can choose to wear their Birthday MUFTI the day before!

Dare I say it….

We’ve all got everything crossed for England on Sunday evening. Should we win, the children are welcome to celebrate by wearing a football/England shirt on Monday. Come on England!

Enjoy your weekend,

Mrs Griffith

Science Day!

Children dressed up as all kinds of scientists today!  In school this morning, we have met medical doctors, archaeologists, zoologists, engineers, chemists, geologists, forensic scientists, lab technicians, nuclear scientists, astronomers, a vaccination expert, paleontologists and even a pathologist - to name but a few!  We even have some mad scientists in the building...

Sublime Science

Year 1 have had so much fun today with Sublime Science thanks to the very generous parents of Year 1 who funded this workshop. So many science magic tricks were performed and lots of children were overheard saying today was the BEST day of their lives!! Thank you! 

Year 1 News from Imogen

Imogen Kay from year one has two exciting pieces of news to share!

She entered a poem about scorpions in the Young Writers "Poetry Safari" competition earlier this year and has been told that it has been selected for publication in their anthology, which should be out in September 2021.

Imogen is also a big  lover of ducks and waterlife. She did some drawings of the ducks, geese and other birds she saw when she visited the London Wetland Centre back in April and sent them in to WWT. As a result they've published the drawings in their national Waterlife magazine.

A big well done and congratulations Immie!

Class 3 Visit Legoland

Class 3 had a fabulous time investigating the forces of a rollercoaster.  We learned that roller coasters don’t have an engine but instead they rely on motorised chains, friction, gravity, air resistance and energy to make the rollercoaster go up and down!  Here are some photos of us at our workshop building our own rollercoaster and some fun ones too!  We had lots of fun!

Year 4 Keyboard Lessons

This term Miss Ming came in and gave us keyboard lessons and taught us crotchets (1 beat), minims (2 beats), dotted minims (3 beats) and quavers (half a beat).  She also taught us the notes: A, B, C, D, E, F and G.  We learnt the time signatures: 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4.  On our last lesson, we did a concert where nearly everyone played a song (most people played Baby Shark).

Benoit Minne

This term, every Wednesday Miss Liu has taught us keyboard lessons. She has taught us:  Dance Monkey, Baby Shark, Perfect and Ode to Joy.  The chords she taught us are:  A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.  We know quaver, crotchet, semi-breve, minim and dotted minim.  She has been a great keyboard teacher. Thank you Miss Liu

Year 4 Ravenous Readers

Hristiana has read Starfell this week.  Well done Hristiana!


Years 5 and 6 - Mission to Mars

On Thursday Years 5 and 6 took part in a STEM activity run by SATRO, an education charity.

Mission to Mars: Pupils learnt how to program a Robot Vehicle to go forwards, reverse, turn and change the speed and time of manoeuvres. They programmed the Robot Vehicle to complete several tasks and as an extension activity may have completed tasks including buzzers, LEDs and produced onboard warning messages. This allowed their vehicle to become an independent, intelligent rover that could navigate around rocks just like the Perseverance Rover on Mars!


SATRO relies on volunteers from all areas of the working world to make their events an exciting and unique learning experience. They operate throughout Surrey and the South East so if you would like to get involved in inspiring the next generation about the world of work, please visit their website for more information –

NHS Frimley Healthier Together website for parents and carers of children from 0-18

When children become ill it can be difficult for their parents and carers to always know the best way to care for them, particularly if they are very young and can't tell you exactly what is wrong.

The NHS Frimley Healthier Together website is here to support parents and carers to help them manage a range of common childhood illnesses themselves. The site provides information to help them recognise what might be wrong, what to do to help their children whilst at home, and where to go for more help if they do need to see a healthcare professional.

The website has been designed by local and national paediatric experts and based on trusted national guidelines to support parents and carers at a time when they often face the predicament of managing minor illness in their children. When to seek medical advice? When to try over the counter or home remedies? Do they need antibiotics?

The site gives “red flags” of worrying features that need urgent medical review. This way parents and carers can be reassured they are taking appropriate action at home and know when they need more specialist help.

By having all the information in one place and where people know the information has come from trusted health professionals and local service providers, Healthier Together can help parents feel more comfortable to make the right decisions about what to do next for their child’s care.

The website also provides:

·       Website translation in over 75 languages, including English.

·       The ability to SMS text message specific pages to families and friends instantly.

·       A user-friendly mobile version with the same accessibility and navigation.

Dr Alexandra Streeter De Diego, Clinical Lead Frimley Healthier Together 0-18, said: “The website is an excellent starting place for parents and carers who are worried about the health and wellbeing of their child. The website is divided into sections for parents/carers, mental health and wellbeing, and a young people’s section. Topics covered include newborns and babies under 3 months, feeding your baby, keeping your child fit and well, should you send your child to nursery or school, young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing and Covid-19.

“The website also links to the Frimley Health Maternity website, which covers the stages of pregnancy, from the planning stage, through the pregnancy itself, to labour and birth and then advice to new mothers on how they can care for their babies and themselves.

Feedback from parents has been positive. One parent said: "It’s like having a mini doctor for you at home, that’s how I see it. It gives so much information on what I should do when they are ill, in what cases I need to get more support or go to hospital, or how I can treat my baby at home."
