arts Week

A sunny day meant we could see a vivid and poignant reflection of the old ruins in the glass of the new cathedral.

Arts Focus Week has been a busy, productive and stimulating time. Each class has responded to the visit to Coventry Cathedral by producing several pieces of artwork through the week. Every child has had the opportunity to create a clay sculpture, based on the Choir of Survivors in the Cathedral ruins. Children in Key Stage 1 have all made beautiful stained glass windows. Highlights for me have included spending time with each class teaching drawing skills, helping Lowsonford create self-portraits and watching the progress of each class’s specially focused artwork, which will be finished next week.

I’d like to personally thank all adults in school for their enthusiasm and support throughout the week.

Everyone is warmly invited to view the children’s artwork at our Exhibition in the afternoon on Tuesday 16th July, in the school hall. This promises to be a wonderful culmination of a memorable and creative week.

sports day


Today’s sports morning, family picnic and art workshops were all fantastic successes - and we were totally blessed by the weather too! Thank you for your much valued support, on what is always one of the most special days of the year. Enormous thanks also to Mr Bladon who coordinated the entire event.

school council report 2018-2019

Please do follow the link to read the School Council report which is published on the website. It has been written by the Year 6 Chair and gives a detailed account of the range of work undertaken and decisions made by the children this year. Pupil voice is evidently alive and well at Ferncumbe!


Do look out for your child's Progress Book which will be coming home next Friday (12th July), and will include your child's report and assessments.

protection in the sun


On Thursday morning, Mrs Grier held an assembly all about staying safe in the sun. This was to accompany a leaflet coming home with all children. Please help us to keep the children safe by applying sun cream before school on those predictably hot days, as well as providing a wide rimmed hat (if possible) and sunglasses if your child would like to. Thank you.
