Thanks to our FOSM team for running a very special Easter Egg hunt last Saturday. It was a lot of fun, and raised £802.33 for the school. Just brilliant :) THANK YOU to parents for their continued support.
The French non-school uniform day also raised £650! Thank you to everyone for your generous donations. This money goes towards to breakfast costs and also FOSM fundraising.

Thank you to all the super scientists who helped lead Science Week.
Mark Roberts introduced this year’s theme – Connections – and inspired us all with his enthusiasm for his work. His “Build a Paper Bridge” teacher challenge illustrated the principles of scientific investigation and helped to show that we all have the potential to be scientists.
In Key Stage 2, Dr Holly Dove led a talk describing her work in the field of virology. The children listened carefully and asked thoughtful questions to deepen their understanding. She raised awareness of science as a possible career. In Key Stage 1 and Year R, Karon Rogers created some WOW moments with her exciting science experiments.
Thank you to all the children who entered the poster competition. The science team were overwhelmed by the effort and care taken and the knowledge shown by those who took part. As a result, all the children will receive a small prize. The main winners are:
