Not the Bug Club that you are thinking of - although that is great too, having so many books at your finger tips. However, this Bug Club is about real bugs, the type of bugs you find crawling around - inside and out. A group of our Y2 children have been creating their own Bug Club outside and they have some members already - have a look at these pictures.
Amazing effort by everyone in our Mathletics Week!! The school total was an incredible 596,808 points.
Our winning class, Mr Patterson's class, managed the huge score of 245,505. Mrs Penna's class got the biggest KS1 class total - 65,540.
Our individual winners are pictured above. Not surprisingly the Grand Champion, with the grand total of 23,000, came from Y5. Well done everyone for such a massive effort.
Keep it up - if that is at all possible!!
We have some fabulous prizes to win if you can answer some of these questions. Please make sure you look at the right magazine and put your answer on a piece of paper, include your name and the question number, and place your answer in the correct box in the Upper School Library. Good Luck!!

On Monday 28th April, around 60 children, plus adults, carers, grandparents and staff gathered in the hall for a special mission: a mission to collect litter in the woods and on the Parkside estate and make our community a nicer place to live.
Inspired by the School Council and armed with hi-vis jackets, litter picking equipment and lots of enthusiasm, our heroic volunteers managed to collect over 40 bags of waste! A fantastic effort!
Mrs Batty even said that 2 pensioners from Parkside had come out of their houses to ask what we were doing and then commented that it was a great thing.
We are proud of the care you have all shown to your community. Below is a short video of the action (sorry, it is mainly from the Parkside litter pick, but we know everyone did their bit!)
