FORTNIGHTLY NEWSLETTER ISSUE 5: 17.11.17
The children enjoyed watching Paddington last week after school as part of the Friends of Clavering Film Night. We would like to thank Rachel Betts and the parent volunteers for organising and supporting the event.
On Wednesday 15th November two teams of six boys and six girls from each class in KS2 went to Carver Barracks for the next round of the cross-country competition. Everybody ran brilliantly but there was stiff competition from a number of other schools. Big congratulations go to the Year 3 boys’ team, Amber S, Aiden, Ted (Year 3), Grace (Year 5) and William C (Year 6) who got through to the next stage, which will take place in April. Well done Clavering!
Rose Year 5
On Thursday Year 6 took part in the first ever archery tournament against our family of schools. We entered 6 teams into the event, which took place at Debden Primary School. We all had lots of fun and two of our teams won medals. Mazie, Charlotte, Amelie, Molly, Georgie, Patrick, Tom and Isabella will be going to the next round. Thank you to all parents who helped with transport making it possible for us to compete.
In the interest of safety, as well as appearance, pupils should wear suitable footwear for school. Shoes should fasten securely and be plain black and low heeled with enclosed toes. Boots, sandals, sling backs and trainers are not appropriate for school. Trainers can be worn for PE.
