Well done to all the children who have taken part in the Bikeability course this week, you have all passed!  It makes us pleased and confident that these children now cycle safely in our local area.


Hamsey's Got Talent

We are looking forward to our very own Hamsey's Got Talent this afternoon!  There will be a performance at the Summer Fair.



Please can we remind parents, the safest way for pupils to exit a car is pavement side, not road side.  Please do not drop pupils off at the school gates, but find somewhere safe and considerate to stop.  Thank you.

Lost Property

The lost property boxes at both schools are overflowing.  Please come and check to see if any of the items belong to your child, as anything left at the end of term will be disposed of.  The box at the Lower School is located in the playground under the scooter shelter and at the Upper School, in the dining hall where the children put their lunch boxes; this can be accessed by parents before school when the door is open or by the children during the school day.


The Word of the Week was

Upper School           opulence    – ‘large and excessive amounts of wealth’

Lower School            glum           – ‘looking or feeling gloomy and disappointed’


Riddle of the Week for pupils (last week’s answer: a clock)

What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?
