Something strange and wonderful happened on the playing field at Richard de Clare School on Monday evening. The trees began to grow books from their branches!
To take advantage of this, the current Reception children and children starting in September were invited to come and explore the forest of books and share them with their families.
Parents and children had a great time sharing their favourite stories or exploring new books. They even discovered a fairy garden and teddy bears’ picnic hidden amongst the trees.
Year 6 pupils and staff were on their way back from a trip to Chessington World of Adventures on Thursday afternoon when the coach was involved in a collision on the M25.
Fortunately no one from the school suffered any serious injuries, however one child remains under observation in hospital and a member of staff suffered minor injuries.
Our thoughts are obviously with them and we wish them a full and quick recovery.
The incident was clearly very distressing for those involved and we have made support available to all of our pupils, parents and staff.
As part of our ongoing E-Safety education Key Sage 2 pupils were visited this week by "The 2 Johns" from E Safety Training. They explored pupils attitudes to staying safe online and practical tips to ensure their safety.
Our last full day began with rain and it looked like the weather was going to try and spoil our fun, but not so. After a brief shower the sun came out through the clouds and everyone warmed up.
We awoke to find that the rain had gone, but it was still quite windy. Nonetheless the children were raring to go after another good nights sleep and a big breakfast.
Year 5 update from Kingswood.
Year 1 looked at what different animals in the forest like to eat, then made some fat balls for the birds.
