There was much excitement in Year Six this week due to the announcement of the Year 6 jobs. We were very impressed by the quality of applications submitted, which only made allocating the roles even harder to decide.

 

We are very pleased to introduce you to our new teams:

 

The house captains, who will each be aiming to lead their house to success this year.

 

The worship leaders, who will be responsible for preparing and leading our Friday celebration worships this year.

 

The play leaders, who will be working with our lunch staff to select playground equipment and teach children how to play a wide range of games.

 

The school ambassadors, who will provide tours for visitors to our school, showing all Fermor has to offer.

 

The office team, who will work with Mrs Saunders to deliver important messages and items to classes.

 

The school council leaders, who will help to set up our school council for this year, run meetings and operate our school council shop.

 

The eco team, who will work hard to raise our awareness of environmental issues and help our school to be more green.

 

We look forward to sharing the successes of these teams with you as the year progresses.

 

 

In celebration worship today, we announced our new head boy and girl, Charlie and Mia-Bee. Congratulations to you both. We are sure you will be outstanding role-models.

Friday 10th September 2021

 

It has been great to have our first full week back in school. Our new head boy, James, and head girl, Isla, did a wonderful job leading our first church service on Wednesday. 

 

This week, the children have been working hard on their application letters for their Year 6 job. We have been very proud of how passionate they are about taking on a role and look forward to announcing the results next week.

 

Our first topic this year is the Tudors and Stuarts. As our stunning start to this unit, we went onto the field to re-enact the Battle of Bosworth where Henry Tudor succeeded in overthrowing Richard III.
