Canon Popham’s Got Talent!

We had a fantastic evening of entertainment last Friday when the children took part in the Grand Final of Canon Popham’s Got Talent. Our school choir also performed beautifully in the interval to a packed hall who were very appreciative of all their efforts. We are hugely proud of all their efforts and the children should be very proud of themselves.

The winners were Logan Jones and Nicole Platts in Year 4.  In second place were Felicity Ali and Sam Wood in Year 3, and third place went to Elise Fairclough in Year 4.

A big thank you to Mrs Barratt and all the staff who worked to make this event a success and to the PTA volunteers who also supported us. A grand total of £887.87 was raised that will be used towards the purchase of the new reading books that have been put into the reading scheme for children to take home.

Hungerhill Visit for Year 6

Our Year 6 pupils have had their three day transition visit to Hungerhill this week. The children were well prepared and although feeling a little nervous on the first morning were also excited to be moving towards the next step in their learning journey.

We would also like to congratulate two of our former pupils, Mollie Bruce and Jack Hilliyer who have been chosen to be Head Boy and Head Girl at Hungerhill next year.

And finally a reminder. . .

Please can you ensure that your child brings a water bottle to school every day. We have been working in some extremely warm conditions and there are still a few children who do not bring their bottle to school. As a school we do our best to ensure that children have access to water in hot weather at all times and we encourage the children to drink it and keep well hydrated. This is more difficult when children do not have a bottle with them so please can you make sure that they have this essential part of their equipment each day.
