We've had an emotional morning here at Field End Junior School. Our Leavers' Assembly was beautifully performed by Year 6, tears were shed, laughter was heard and every child shared their best memory of their time at Field End Junior School. Honed by their recent success in 'The King of The Lions', the singing of 'One more step' and 'Here I am Lord' was absolutely stunning.
Our congratulations go to Nabil, who won the prestigious Sethi Leadership Award, this is awarded to the child who shows the best spirit of what a true 'Field Ender' should be. Nabil received a unanamous vote from the staff, we are very proud of you Nabil.
Thank you to the family members who came to watch the performance and stayed for the poignant balloon release ceremony. The children had written their hopes and dreams on stars attached to red balloons which they released while the rest of the school sang 'You can count on me'. More tears were shed, hugging ensued, it was a real community moment.
Field End Infant and Junior Schools had their Summer Fair on Thursday 7th July. The sun shone for us and we had some amazing displays of drama, singing, Zumba, Irish Dancing and Kidzstar Academy dancers. The local Police were also in attendance (in riot gear!), along with our local Fire Brigade. There was a lovely petting zoo and lots of stalls, a little steam train and bouncy castles. Thanks also go to our raffle donations and Coopers Estate Agents.
Great fun was had by all.
On Friday 10th June we celebrated Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's official 90th Birthday with a visit from the 'Queen'. The Infant School and Junior School children were all extremely excited to see the 'Queen' and had made her some birthday cards and presented her with flowers. The 'Queen' toured both schools speaking to pupils and seeing the children’s work. 'Her Majesty' then opened the newly refurbished Infant School library before leaving.
