Welcome to this week's newsletter. It was fantastic to see you at our parents' evenings this week, and to share the work and progress your children have achieved. Our teachers found they were talking about determination and growth mindset a lot, because everyone has been trying really hard. We also celebrated the determination shown by two pupils in our assembly this week. Leo and Noah showcased their Grade 1 piano pieces, and had the whole assembly enraptured.

Have you ever High Fived the Lord Mayor?

Year 4 walked to the Bristol Council House this week, for an audience with the Lord Mayor. They were joined by pupils from Hotwells Primary School and Cathedral Primary School too, for a debate on technology in schools (and whether we can save energy by limiting its use). The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Bristol Paul Goggin (and the sword bearer) presided over the debate, after which we learned a little more about the council chamber and his role. It was a fantastic trip - Year 4 can be very proud of their hard work in preparing for the debate. We were particularly impressed by the speeches made by Hafsa and Toby!

Sport Relief Reminder

On Wednesday 27th March (next week), we will be raising money for Comic Relief by having our own Sport Relief day. We are looking forward to a fun physical day, in which children will each take part in an obstacle course. Children may come to school dressed in something sporty, or as their favourite sports person. To raise money, children can bring a donation in cash (we suggest £1) or you can donate on the school gateway.

Butterfly Conservation

The Green Team were great ambassadors for the school and the environment this week. They met with Angus from the Butterfly Conservation charity who have some lottery funding to help us support pollinators.  They did a survey of butterfly habitats in the school grounds and looked at what was missing and how we could improve planting for caterpillars and butterflies. The Green Team had lots of curious questions and creative ideas and showed great determination to help butterflies and moths!


Moose Afterschool Club are currently recruiting new volunteer Directors to help run the charity which provides essential after school childcare. Please see the details on this advert:
