Y5 Victorian day trip to Springfield School

Our trip to Springfield School for the Victorian day is fast approaching. We thought that you would like to know some important details about the day.

We will be travelling to school by public bus, leaving at around 9.00 am so we are asking the children to be in school for registration at 8.40 am. The children need to be wearing a Victorian outfit and they will also need a coat and some sturdy walking shoes, as we will have to walk through town to get to Springfield School. We will be back in school to be collected at 3.15 pm, buses permitting, and if we are going to be significantly later, school will inform you.

We would love for as many parents to join us on this trip, if you are able to please sign up in the classroom.

Be Bright Day

We will be holding a ‘Be Bright Day’ on Friday 30th November to emphasise the importance of road safety during winter.  We will be running a competition to see who has the brightest outfit and prizes will be on offer for the winners.

The day will be a non uniform day and we are asking for the children to bring 50p if they wear bright clothes.  This will help pay for a class set of luminous vests which the children will wear on school visits in order to make them more visible to motorists.


Children in Need 2012

Show your spots, let’s raise lots!

Friday 16th November is Children In Need Day and we are looking forward to supporting the charity again.

In order to raise money, we will have a non-uniform day on the Friday and we would like to ask that children make a £1 contribution for this. If they choose to, children could wear a spotty outfit for the day in keeping with the C.I.N. tradition. This could be simply a spotty bandana like Pudsey or going for a full spotty number – the choice is yours!

Let’s make this a really successful fund raising event for Pudsey – don’t forget your money and most of all  Show your spots, let’s raise lots!

A fantastic trip to the theatre of dreams!

There was great excitement as our minibus load of football fans set off, bound for one of the world’s greatest grounds. When Old Trafford spectacularly loomed into view at last, we knew that the long journey had definitely been worth it! We were there to watch the Champion’s League fixture between Manchester Utd and Portuguese side FC Braga and we arrived in plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of the famous old stadium. The statue of Sir Matt Busby, the Munich clock and the amazing club shop were just a few of the sight we enjoyed.

Our seats were fantastic and gave us a great view of the game (and the very noisy away fans!) The match itself was a thriller, with United conceding two early goals before Van Persie pulled one back. Following a superb half time pie, United dominated the second half, scoring twice to clinch a 3-2 victory. All in all, it was a brilliant experience and an amazing feeling to be part of a 73,000 strong crowd.

A happy dad and lad!
