In the last few weeks a great deal has happened at Ferry Lane and it has been quite hard to keep up! But it has all been good and I certainly have enjoyed every minute… Where to start?
Well today has been unbelievably brilliant. It started last night when Mr Sloan texted me to say we would be in the papers for all our hard work on the blog! So I went to have a look and it was true – we are all over the media! Mr Sloan has cleverly made some links for you… Here is the newspaper article, and here is a longer version on the Haringey website.-
Then Mr Sloan emailed me to tell me to go to the website and see the fantastic film of the BBC Dr Who writing project. And what a stunner it is! Once you get over the embarrassment of seeing yourself on film (do I really sound like that?!) you can really enjoy it. I watched it with Ms Cozier who is also on the film (we were giggling) and we telephoned Ms Prothero, our Chair of Governors, to tell her she was famous too! The best bit was seeing year 5 talking about their writing and how it’s been much more fun and how much progress they have made.
I know who is really responsible for all this and it is actually Mr Sloan, and every child, parent, member of staff and visitor who has been on the blog or on the film - THANK YOU!
This brings me to the best day out I have had in a long time. I was very lucky to go to Wales with Year 5 and I was really pleased to be inside the tardis (yes it is bigger on the inside!)… However I also broke 3 school trip rules and had to report myself to Mr Mackie when we made it back to school. Unfortunately I may not be going on any more trips! So please remember that you need to know what the rules are and then you need to follow them if you want to have trips! Just so you know, you are not allowed any electronic equipment, fizzy drinks or chocolate… Can you hazard a guess as to what I might have done wrong, just by not thinking carefully enough? Don’t make the same mistake; Mr Mackie can get quite cross!!
However the trip itself was great and I am so proud of our school!
We are also in the middle of producing a truly excellent school prospectus and I need your help to get it finished. We have had some lovely photos taken by a professional photographer (let me know if there is any reason you don’t want to be in our prospectus) and now I need you to give me 3 words (I know we could have hundreds) to describe what our school is actually about. What is it that is really good about our school? What is it that is totally unique and makes our school the best one to learn in? We will use your ideas to create our new school slogan which we will use in the prospectus. So they need to be good words as they are going to convey a powerful message, one that tells people just what we really stand for as a school community and what we really think is important.
So please help me out! Just three words is all I need, but they need to be top quality so get thinking please!
