Lots of tired children today, but a fantastic sailing day. Water fights and seal sightings have kept them entertained. Canoeing, crabbing and cycling still to come.

See you all Friday


Monday 24th May

As you know from Twitter they have all arrived safely. The internet is very patchy and Miss Smith is trying to get photos to you as much as possible. Below is a small selection of photos to start with, hopefully more will follow as the internet allows.

We had some fantastic costumes, and we hope the children enjoyed spending the day exploring their book. Congratulations to the winners, all the teachers had a difficult time choosing. We hope they have fun searching for their prize and all children spend their book tokens on a brilliant new read.


Sports Leaders

admin on: Whole School Blog

Millie and Joshua recently went on a Sports Leaders training held at William De Ferrers school. They met all the other sports leaders from all the schools in the William De Ferrers Partnership. At their training they competed in games and discovered different games to share with our school. As a follow up from the training they will be running an intra-school competition of their choice. 

Thoughts are being gathered, ideas will be discussed and a plan will be formulated ending in a fun session for the children.

Well done Millie and Joshua, you were a credit to the school and we look forward to supporting you in your challenge.

Well done team Rettendon!


The Mysterious Gift

admin on: Whole School Blog

Rettendon has discovered a mysterious gift in the hall. The police were called, they have tested it, and they have given us the all clear. They don't know however what is inside it, or who put it there. Was it Eddy the Elf saying sorry for eating Mrs Barber's mince pies, or Mrs Dillon, or even Santa Claus? What is inside it, hopefully we will discover soon, but we know there are many theories.
