British PRIDE - as a family decide upon who you regard as being a Briton who represents everything PRIDE stands for, from history or today.  Draw a picture (A4 size) & write a short report on them explaining why they are your ultimate example of British PRIDE.

Please hand this in after half term & we will choose the best examples to decorate our British PRIDE wall in the conservatory.


 October 2015 - Movember designs

Mr Askew, Mr Butler, Mr Cates, Mr Crosby & Mr Ram (who don't know it yet!) & Mr Jones will all be sprouting a moustache to help raise awareness of cancer in the month of November& will raise money for the charity Movember.  What they would like you to do is to draw a picture of them (you choose how many) a moustache style that they might be able to try and grow during the month (don't be too hopeful - our moustaches won't grow that quickly!)

 The winning designers will win a small prize and their designs posted on the website.

Moustache day (27th November) will be a non-uniform, wear a moustache day with a £1 donation - if you or anyone in your family would like to sponsor any of the teachers that would be great or maybe it would be even better if you got your dad, grandad, uncle, step-dad, older brother to grow a moustache and get sponsored as well!
