The weeks are ticking by and if you are a parent or looking after children of school age, you are counting down to the summer holidays. It can be a real juggling act - find things to do, keep them entertained while at home or while travelling at home or abroad. No doubt games consoles, tablets and the internet will also feature high on the kids' things to do list. UK Safer Internet Centre coordinators, SWGfL have lots of tips for parents and carers on how to enjoy a safe digital summer.

Each class has been growing sweet peas and sunflowers. It has been a competition between classes to see who could grow the tallest sunflower and who could grow the most flowers on the sweet pea plants. The winning classes were 5CM for their sweet pea plant and 1KB for their sunflower plant which has so far reached 105 cm.
Well done to everyone that watered and re-potted their plants!
On Thursday 25th June, Year 5 were invited to an Athletics Festival at Queenswood Secondary School in Brookman’s Park. There were 19 teams, working in a carousel of activities throughout the day. Although we were the only non-Prep School there and it was an uncomfortably hot day, we did extremely well. All the year group tried hard and showed what excellent sportsmen and women we are.
Well done year 5, you were all absolutely amazing!
