Congratulations to J for winning the pedometer challenge with an impressive score of 520 steps in under a minute. The JTAs hope you enjoy your prize and it helps you ‘Be Bright and Be Seen’ travelling to and from school.


Update from the JTAs

We had a great time selling road safety reflectors and running our ‘Pedometer Challenge’’ at the fireworks this week. We are working steadily towards our fundraising target. We hope to be able to purchase the helmet storage in the spring term ready for summer cycling.

We would also like to thank you all for asking us so many questions about what are role is and what we do in school. We hope you now know a bit more about our job.

Thank you The Junior Travel Ambassadors


The Great Fire of Hollickwood

At the end of last half term Year 2 recreated the Great FIre of London and Mr Vivian helped us burn London down ! It was so exciting !



Our Girls football team had their first competitive match on Thursday. They faced much more experienced opponents from Churchill School. The team gave it their best but lost 8-0. However, we are very proud of the way they kept going and matched the opposition for long periods of the game, there were some great moments and lots of positives to build on for the next match, which is coming up next week, away to Holy Trinity. The boys have a home game on Tuesday, as they face Broadfields in a cup match.
