Pupils and parents from the Deaf Support Base recently had an amazing opportunity to attend an Alice in Wonderland Tea party at the Radisson Blu Hotel, sponsored by the DLR.
The pupils took part in face painting and cake decorating, as well as enjoying a High Tea.
On Monday 23rd March, our KS1 and KS2 pupils took part in a celebratory drumming performance to showcase all they have been learning to play this term in their instrumental lessons each week with our specialist African drumming tutor Joe Allen.
Each class performed a different piece they had devised during their lessons with Joe and the results were fantastic! All pupils played with excellent skill and concentration and it was a great thrill for them all to perform in front of the rest of the school. Well done everyone!

On Tuesday 17th March, parents gathered in the hall to learn more about how they can keep their children safe online. The leader asked the parents questions throughout the session as he discussed: social media, parental controls, cyber bullying and online friends.
A few key points to take away: Do you know the sites your child/ren visit? Do you know their passwords? Who are their online friends? Have you set up parental controls?
A leaflet for all parents will be handed out during the Summer term so do read it and ask your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
The Internet can be a wonderful tool, if we keep ourselves protected.
On Friday 13th March, children and staff are encouraged to wear an item of red clothing and pay 50p towards Comic Relief. There will be a cake stall after school and facepainting for 50p.
