Mollie's Story

Meet Mollie, aged 7, a Key Stage 2 pupil from our school who has really struggled with literacy for a couple of years, resulting in a lack of all-round confidence and anxiety about going to school.

Mollie's story shows how LEGO® Education StoryStarter helped to make a real difference both to her literacy learning and her enjoyment of school. We're proud of Mollie and her fantastic story.

No. 20 Summer Term 2015

Feeling Good Week 15th – 19th June      

Surrey’s Feeling Good Week and The Macmillan Dress up and Dance Day coincide this year during week 15th – 19th June. In addition, many of our pupils would like to hold some sort of celebration of the life of Sarah Kruger. We have combined these events, along with special lessons and events during this week.

 

Feeling Good Week is an annual awareness raising event that promotes the importance of good emotional health and well-being. This year's theme is 'Get up and grow!’ and will include discussing with children the importance of emotional and mental health, empowering them to know who to ask for help if and when it is needed and to enable them to develop positive coping strategies to deal with life events.

 

Charity Cake Sale Thursday 18th June

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

To conclude the week’s events, we would like to hold a cake sale to raise funds for the charity which supported Sarah and her family – The Royal Marsden. I know many Parents and Staff would like to bake and sell cakes to show their support.

Please bring your cakes to school (music room). Charlie and his friends will be in charge of the sale.
