We used a variety of applications including Tynker, Hopscotch and then Swift Playgrounds to solve a problem and have a bit of fun at the same time. Some pairs used Swift to code one of our two Meebots to dance, or more accurately boogie along to ‘Boogie Wonderland’ the winning dance then being awarded with a suitable prize. Three groups ventured outside into the cold and wrote a code to direct one of our three Spheros, essentially a gyroscope in a ball, to get nearest to the hole in a nearest the pin challenge. As you can see, it was a most enjoyable way to spend a Friday, especially as Chef Leon then rewarded our endeavours with a rather superb lunch.
The Sphero coders faced quite a challenge in getting nearest the pin. They had to factor in to their code the speed (m/sec), angle and time of travel in order to sink their putt.
The winners? The dance off was a closely fought affair, with the eventual winners being Mr Warner and Zac (the former clearly drawing upon personal experience from the dance floor) and Sarah and Mrs Bakhouche who tackled the challenge in a very scientific manner.
Chef Leon and Linda have had quite an exciting week. The lunch on Thursday was exceptional. How on Earth they managed to prepare the range and variety of food they did is beyond me...
To follow this up the very next day in preparing lunch for the children, parents for the Hour of Code and to manage with an unannounced visit from the Environmental Health Inspector I think they both deserved their weekend!
I am delighted to confirm that our 5 Star rating has been maintained, with the inspector commentating on and praising the standards of cleanliness and protocols operating in the kitchen.

We are in the process of developing a new website. We are hoping to reveal our new site in January 2018.
The grid calendar is back up and running, although we are still trying to publish 2018-2019 term dates and remove the 2016-2017, however they are in the grid calendar.
Please help us maintain the very best relationships with our neighbours by not blocking or parking in their drives when dropping off or collecting your children.
Please do not park on the yellow chevrons directly in front of the school or across driveways for the safety of all of our children.
Could I ask that you ensure that waterproof trousers, Wellington boots and coats are brought into school on the relevant day (regardless of the forecast) so that we maximise our use of Richmond Park.
