Wednesday 4th March - Friends of MAPS Movie Night

The next event will be another Movie Night, to be held after school on Wednesday March 4th. As before, all films will start at approx 3:45pm and end around 5:30pm, with popcorn to start and pizza served with a drink during the intermission.

The new website is now taking bookings. We anticipate a high demand for this popular event, so, if you haven't already done so, please register on the site beforehand. To do this, follow this link :- www.pta-events.co.uk/friendsofmaps

Please note that Crazy For Kids and all MAPS after school clubs will still be running on the 4th, so it is your choice whether your child attends their usual club or a movie after school. The movie booking process will ask you to confirm this.

Parents Evening - 23rd & 25th March 2020

On Wednesday, the sun was shining for a fantastic afternoon for the KS2 interhouse competition. The children engaged in; Tag Rugby , Netball and a Boccia event in order to win points for their house. The children really enjoyed themselves and there was great sportsmanship and resilience being shown across all year groups. It was also great to see children taking part in all of the events. MAA were great hosts and there young leaders were brilliant at supporting and umpiring. In the end, Scott house were the overall winners but it was very close!

Brilliant homework in Tigers this week based on our termly virtue responsibility. Well done!
