First, thank you all for supporting both Jeans for Genes Day and also our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday by coming along to the café, by baking cakes or just donating. We support a lot of good causes and your active involvement is very much appreciated.

This week’s ever changing weather has provided us with some challenges. A classroom was flooded on Tuesday morning and then we had issues with the fans in the kitchen on Wednesday which meant that we had no gas for cooking! Everyone rose to the challenge and everyone ate well, the kitchen staff were still able to sort special diets and the students in Transitions really enjoyed their jacket potatoes, baked beans and cheese. Well done to the staff for sorting this.

We have continued our outdoor learning in all the different weathers of the week. Pupil in Pirates enjoyed their Forest Schools session under the pergolas where they had a fire and made cooked sandwiches on a very wet morning. Other have been successful in walking to the local shops but also exploring the natural features of autumn.

The building of the new classrooms continues to grow and we are generally pleased with the progress the team are making.

This forthcoming week will feature staff practicing our singing and signing of our favourite harvest songs ready for our harvest festivals. We welcome any donations of produce for this as each class will be making and decorating a harvest box.  All produce will then be donated to the Milton Keynes Food Bank who last year were extremely grateful for our donations. Please do come along and join us for these – the dates are all on the school website.

Some classes are closed on Friday for essential medical training. They are Caldecotte, Furzton, Linford, Stewart and Willen.

Hoping everyone is having a good weekend.
