Kersplat! Mr Priest was put in the stocks last week as part of Class Five’s charity fundraiser for Shelterbox. Thanks to CTCRM for constructing the very solid stocks in which Mr Priest was imprisoned. For just £1 a go children could throw either a wet sponge or a custard pie at the headteacher. Over £300 was raised for the charity in under an hour after school last week. What a fantastic effort by all involved.

Beware – trainee cyclists on the road! During the last week of term 16 children took their Bikeability training with the school, a programme of lessons and tests in cycling proficiency. Well done to all the pupils involved.

Over 50 pupils and a dozen staff will miss out on seeing Kate walk down the aisle on Friday 29th as we will be in the middle of a four-day camping trip in the woods at Escot. Sleeping in a yurt or watching the Royal Wedding on the telly …that’s a ‘no brainer’ surely?
