This week's awards - Celebration Collective Worship
Friday 15th February
School Council shared some feedback from today's meeting. Gordon asked pupils to think about ideas for reducing the amount of lost property. Abigail shared the last text that was voted for 'The Outlaw Varjak Paw' by SF Said. She shared this week's suggestion, which School Council voted to purchase: 'The Ice Monster' by David Walliams.
We said farewell to our two visiting teachers, Miss Bullman and Miss Foley - we wish them well for their next steps. Year 1 have been very pleased to welcome them for the past 7 weeks. We also said farewell to M. Gance, a Headteacher from a school in Creil, France. M. Gance has spent the week observing the differences between the English and French education systems and it has been a pleasure to welcome him back to Shelford.

12/2/19 - 8:00am - everyone has enjoyed a good evening. Reportedly, the boys were in a more peaceful state than the girls! Pupils are enjoying their breakfast, before their first activity.
11/2/19 - 2:20pm - the children are having a great time! They have enjoyed a lovely lunch, complete with dessert. After that, they enjoyed the 'Snail Game'. Orienteering has just been completed along with the residential centre's specific challenge! After this, they will take part in 'Spider Eye'. At the end of the afternoon, the children will have an introduction to the TV studio challenge.
11/2/19 - 10:15am - the pupils have arrived safely and are having their introductory talk with the staff.
Y6 Residential Blog:
6/2/19 - 2:10pm - Washing machines on standby - they are en route!
5/2/19 - 8:00am - The children are getting ready for climbing, archery and mountain biking this morning, with the hope of spending time on the water this afternoon. It is misty there this morning, but this will hopefully clear!
5/2/19 - 7:00am - The children have had a good evening and slept well especially after the evening challenge. Our pupils demonstrated some excellent team work. Early reports show that the rooms are impressively tidy … so far! Meanwhile, over at the boys' headquarters, three boys were found to be enjoying an early morning dance in the corridor!! Safe to say, Shelford are already feeling at home!
4/2/19 - 2:00pm - All have arrived safely and enjoyed lunch together. One of the groups are about to commence cycling!
4/2/19 - 9:30am - We waved off the Y6 pupils in high spirits, full of excitement for the activities that lie ahead! We just hope that they have been practicing carrying those heavily-laden bags!
