Cross Country

Cross Country (27.9.2018)

I would like to start by saying a huge well done to all the children who took part in the event, especially the Year 3 children who are new to Key stage 2 and all of the sporting competitions.

The competition was much more enjoyable this year as it was brought forward, which meant that the children were no longer running in wet and muddy conditions. However, this did not stop some children losing their shoes through utter eagerness to win! We saw amazing pace from Holly, Ethan and Oliver and fantastic skills for running from William, who didn’t take part last year because he forgot his PE kit, well done for remembering this year! As in previous years, Casey was so eager to beat his football friend for 1st place that he physically gave it everything he had to finish first again for the 3rd time in a row. He threw himself over the finishing line and collapsed in a heap!

At the end of the races, there was some spare time before we had to catch the bus so Mr Clift challenged the children to a sprinting competition- it was fair to say that even though there was a little cheating going on (surprisingly not from the adult!) Mr Clift deservedly won!

Congratulations to those children who took part and successfully got through to the final at Preston Park: Isabelle, Amy, William, Jay, Ethan, Holly, Laurence, Oliver and Casey.

Your kind words

Your teaching staff work so well together, they are an absolute credit to you and your school (as are the children).
I have to say the children, and staff, are an absolute credit to the school and I wanted to let you know as they were fantastic.
They were all very well behaved and very sensible. Well done on having such a lovely school.
“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
You were both very understanding and I really do appreciate this. Thank you so much.
You all do fantastic jobs and I appreciate this.
Not only has he progressed academically, he has also gained more confidence and I would like to thank Mr Clift for playing an instrumental part in this.
Many thanks to all the staff at Preston, it is you who make us parents feel our children are happy and safe.
She has really enjoyed Year 3. We are really pleased with the progress she has made in many subjects – especially in maths.
I just wanted to say “well done” for this year’s year 6 sats results! They were amazing and I know that it would have taken sheer hard work from the children and teachers to enable your pupils to achieve with the unrealistic expectations set the Gove & Morgan camp.
Thank you for the report it was a pleasure to read and we greatly appreciate all that you done for her this year.
