Today, Year 5 & 6 were given the opportunity to learn how to administer CPR. A lady from the ambulance service taught the children how to save someone’s life using CPR.
We were also show how a defibrillator works and why you may need to use one. She also stressed the importance of looking after the defibrillator, which is housed on the grounds of our school.
Yesterday, some of the children from Year 5/6 were invited to visit the Magistrates and Crown Courts in Newport. The staff explained the various roles within each court. We also had the chance to visit the cells, where prisoners are held before moving to a permanent prison. We were shocked at the lack of room in each cell.
As usual the children were a credit to the school and asked a number of interesting questions.

Today, Year 6 had their first Samba music lesson. I was extremely impressed by the talented musicians within our class.
May I wish you all a warm welcome back after the half term break. We will be continuing with ‘Our Changing World’ topic and the children will be producing an extended narrative about an apocalyptic world, which I am sure will get their creative juices flowing.
This last term is an extremely busy and emotional one, as the children will be taking part in their last sports day, Summer Faye and rehearsing for their leavers assembly 😥. It will be a time to spend the last few weeks together as a class.
May I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you as parents, for your continued support this year, it has been an absolute pleasure teaching your children and watching them mature into such wonderful young people.
Very kind regards,
Well, what can I say? It has been an absolute pleasure spending time with such wonderful children, they have been an absolute credit to our Federation. We have been immersed into the French culture, observed the consequences of conflict, and challenged ourselves to ride some rather large and stomach churning roller coasters! I am so incredibly proud of each and every one of you.
Thank you to the dedicated staff who accompanied us on our residential – I feel you all enjoyed it as much as the children.
Have a wonderful half term.
