Wednesday 25th May 

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.

Parental advice and information on Instagram now available. Please go to e-safety in the Curriculum pages.

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.


Swimming Gala

A selection of volunteers recently entered the William De Ferrers Sports Partnership annual swimming gala. They all swam to their best ability and many achieved excellent results within the two heats.

Well done team Rettendon!

October Half Term

History Day09Nov2016

Please bring in an old artefact/object/implement from long ago. The children should have a little background information on teh artefact or at least know what it is. Try to choose an object that offers interesting contrast to the modern day version of the same thing. The children will research their object/s and then we will transform all classrooms into museums for our very own "Antiques Roadshow". We will have an "Open Hour" for you to see pupils' work. Please do not send in anything of a very high value.
