A place with a zest for excitement, friendship and fun;
Where learning extends beyond the classroom walls.
A place where we all feel safe and secure;
Where integrity and honesty are highly valued.
A place where we appreciate and celebrate difference;
Where we support each other and learn from mistakes.
A place where we nurture a thirst for learning,
Aspire to brilliance and build resilience.

Today is World Poetry Day and we are delighted to be able to tell you that award-winning poet Joshua Seigal has written a poem for Every Child Our Future: "I wrote this poem exclusively for Every Child Our Future, who do such an inspiring and important job in helping young people with their reading. It was a real honour to be able to contribute to their wonderful work." Joshua Seigal We are so grateful to all our ECOF volunteers who support reading every week in our school.
Just a quick reminder that the Primary Engineers' competition entries need to be given in to Mrs Dixon tomorrow. We were extremely lucky to have had visits in school from two engineers: Daniel Gough, a Civil Engineer who works for WSP UK Ltd, and Keith Capern who is a retired Mechanical Engineer. The children talked to them about their jobs and career paths and found out more about what engineers do. One of the children asked to whom the letter should be addressed.... we think either of these: Dear Sir/Madam or Dear Judges

We are so excited about having a new library! It is so important to read and share stories with your children. Turn off the TV, put down your devices, cuddle up and enjoy a story together. ❤️
