We had beds stripped, rooms sorted and cases packed before breakfast and then went off to the high ropes. What a fantastic morning – the children should all be so proud of their effort and achievements!
We have heard from Mrs Heath that the Year 3 and 4 children have arrived safely at the Pioneer Centre. They have had their packed lunches and made their beds and will be taking part in their first activities this afternoon.
Unfortunately – due to the weather, Bridgnorth Endowed have taken the decision to cancel the mud-run event.
As this is unlikely to be rearranged for another date again, refunds of voluntary contribution will be issued.
Unfortunately, following a risk assessment by BES, tomorrow’s mud-run event has been postponed. New permission letters will come out for the re-arranged date nearer the time.
A blue Trespass waterproof puffa type coat (age 7 to 8) has gone missing from the Dragonflies cloakroom. It does have a name in it and a telephone number. Please could you check to see if your child has brought the wrong coat home. Many thanks.
A reminder for the Y4-6 pupils attending the mud run on Wednesday that it would be avisable to bring a towel and additional dry clothes (either to take with them or parents to bring at pick-up) to put on over their wet/muddy clothes – or to change into. Miss Rock (who has organised the event from Bridgnorth Endowed School) has said that she will be bringing bin bags for children to sit on during their journey home, but you may wish to also bring your own.
The original letter stated children would need to wear their Brown Clee P.E. kits for this even; however, you may prefer them to wear something that you do not mind getting particularly muddy. They can get changed into these before leaving school on the day.
This year, parents are to pick children up from Friars Playing Fields (as opposed to Bridgnorth Endowed Leisure Centre – as in previous years). The event is due to finish at 15:30.
See attached letter regarding KS2’s upcoming swimming sessions: Swimming Lessons – Sept 23. A paper copy will be given to all children later in the week.
As you will all be aware, all of KS2 have two upcoming performances. With the afternoon performance on Wednesday, the performance will fit within normal school timings. The evening performance on Tuesday, however, begins at 6:00pm. To allow time to change into costumes, Children should arrive at school from 5:15pm and all should be at school by 5:30pm. If watching the performance, you can go into the hall ready for the performance once you have dropped your child off. If you are simply dropping your child off, the performance will be finished at around 7:15pm and children should be ready to be picked up again by 7:30pm.
If, for whatever reason your child may not be able attend the evening performance, please can you let us know as soon as possible – as we may be able to work together a plan.
Dance club had its first session on Monday – The children tried out tap dance, learnt a routine and had a tap around in a pair of tap shoes! Next week they will be having a go at street dancing and having a dance battle.
There are still spaces available if anyone would like to have a go.

Join with the first Joe Wickes workout that was aired during the first lockdown.
How far can you walk or run whilst you are at home? You could run laps of the garden or a route around the house. Send us the distance you cover and we will add it to the class total. I wonder whether we will finish our second lap around the Shropshire border during half term…
I look forward to being back in class with you all again soon.
We have been looking at the work of landscape artist William Heaton Cooper. We have learned about using one point perspective in our drawing and have used colour to add perspective to our paintings. We have learned that we can use lighter to darker shades to show perspective.
We laid our paintings out and had a critique session. We discussed the use of colour and shared our observations with each other.
