marvellous Marle hall!
This week Lowsonford Class have enjoyed the most fantastic residential trip to Marle Hall in North Wales. From canoeing and rock climbing to the 'B.L.T.' (you will have to ask them!) and sea level traversing, they have faced every adventurous challenge that has come their way with enthusiasm and confidence. Miss Morris, Mr Bladon and Mr Kitney, who are accompanying the children, assure me that there has been a tremendous team spirit throughout the week. I look forward to hearing all the details on Monday! The visit was very welcome for Year 6 after a focused and successful series of KS2 SAT tests during the previous week.
Please click through the slides below to read the feedback Governors have written, based on the results from the recent Parent Questionnaire.
new lunch menu
The new Summer lunch menu started in school this week and has been published by Warwickshire County Caterers. Children are offered the main meal (including an option for vegetarians), plus the choice of a baguette on a Friday. Please follow the links below for the 3 week cycle...
A reminder that KS2 children (Years 3-6) have access to our healthy snack bar during morning break. Items include: toast (20p), a selection of fresh fruit (from 30p), raisins (20p), fruit juice (35p) and milkshake (40p).
Children in Reception and KS1 are offered fresh fruit everyday.
exciting playground addition!
Today there was a buzz of excitement around school as our most recent piece of playground equipment started to be installed - a Log Traverse! This play equipment has been kindly funded by The Friends of Ferncumbe after consultation with all the children in school, through our School Council. Ms. Lepper has attended several meetings with the children over the last term, listening to their ideas and preferences. Next week the damaged log train is also to be replaced and extended, again funded by The Friends. Talking to several pupils at lunchtime I assured them that I would extend their genuine thanks, so a big thank you from all of the children at Ferncumbe to all of you who support school so generously.
With best wishes for a lovely weekend,
Tracey Webb, Deputy Headteacher
