Primary Weekly Highlights: ‘Spark’ Story Competition and Principal's message
Primary Weekly Highlights

The theme for this year’s FOBISIA short story competition was ‘Spark’, which gave the children a broad topic to explore writes Julie Harrison, our Subject Coach for English. As you can imagine, we had a wide range of stories covering a wide range of ideas, from fires and erupting volcanoes to sparks of emotions. We are very proud of all the Key Stage 2 children for their efforts in showing what amazing authors they all are. Class teachers had a difficult job choosing a class winner - A big WELL DONE is deserved to our twenty Key Stage 2 class winners who were eventually chosen by their class teachers:

Class Story Winners

After a long and thorough decision making process, we would like to congratulate Yasmin from 4M for her story “Professor Hiroshi and The Time Machine” and Zhixin in 5M for her story “A Spark of Change”, whose stories have been put forward to represent KLASS in the upper and lower key stage categories of the competition. Award winning writer, performer and educator Mark Grist will be deciding on the overall category winners from amongst all the entries from FOBISIA schools.

Happy Holidays

In assembly today I described term 2 as somewhat of a rollercoaster. We were open for two days of face to face learning. Shortly after this we reopened for Early Years and Year 1. Then three weeks ago we reopened for everyone. Our students have continued to show remarkable adaptability and resilience during a period of continued change and unpredictability. For the last three weeks our campus has been alive with happiness as we have all reconnected. I would like to thank our entire staff who continue to care for and nurture our students.

Finally I would also like to thank all of our parents for your support over this last term. It is greatly appreciated.

I wish you all a safe and happy holiday.

Take care

Alan McCarthy
