On the 17th November, we became Water Warriors to raise money for Wateraid, who transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. A huge thank-you to all our parents and carers for donating so generously . We raised a grand total of £256.
Children from our Drama Club will be performing at Richmond Theatre tomorrow night as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival. A big thank you to Mr J and Ms Lwin for all the support they have given the children who have all worked so hard to prepare their performance of Romeo and Juliet. Parents and members of school staff will be in the audience and are really looking forward to the performance and would like to wish everyone the best of luck.
Today we held the finals of our own bake off! Superb cheese scones were baked by our three finalists, it was very difficult to choose between them. However after much consideration (and much tasting) Parnian was declared the winner – she will go on to represent our school in the C8 bake off finals – watch out to see if she is the overall winner. Good luck Parnian!

Pupils had the honour of presenting the funds raised at the Hounslow Primary Schools Music Festival for the Grenfell Tragedy to Fire Fighters from Heston and Isleworth Fire Station who joined pupils and parents for the Year 3 and 4 concert. Oonagh Barry CEO of Hounslow Music Service also joined us, it is down to her hard work and unending enthusiasm that the Music Festival takes place each year. The collections taken at each of the performances totalled over £1300.
Pupils presented the collection to Alan Taylor, Station Manager at Heston and Isleworth Fire Station and Helen Christmas who is a Watch Manger at the Station. Helen is Watch Manager for Red Watch which was one of the watches that attended Grenfell.
During the concert, led by Debbie Brice, specialist teacher from Hounslow Music service, Year 3 performed songs they had been learning in their lessons, Year 4 demonstrated their skills on the Ukulele and the choir performed numbers from the Music Festival.
In the first week of photography club, we learnt about many different features of our cameras, including what each part of a camera is called, how to zoom in and out and how to review the photographs that we have taken. We were then set loose to take photographs around the school. Mr. Stonebridge chose one photograph from each of our portfolios and asked members of staff to anonymously vote for their favourite. It was a close competition, and there were joint winners this week – congratulations to Jayneet (Asteriod) and Salma (Meteor).
Just a note to introduce myself as Ivybridge’s new school nurse, and to offer you all a gentle reminder to ensure that your child is registered with a dentist, has their vaccinations up to date, and visits the optician yearly. The summer holidays are a great time to do this! If your child has any health needs please feel free to contact me via the school.
