The We've been blown away by the outstanding teaching the Year 6s have delivered to the school. It's been a joy to see them transform into mini adults in front of our eyes, and we couldn't be more impressed by how well they have risen to this considerable challenge.
We're very proud of their huge achievement. They're a real credit to the school!

We loved meeting a famous author, DD Everest, this week. DD Everest is the brain behind 'Archie Green and the Magician's Secret'. It tells the tale of a young boy who discovers an old book hidden deep within an ancient wooden box, written in a language he doesn’t recognise. The book sounds fantastic and we can't wait to read it!
DD Everest came in to give his top ten tips to the school in assembly, as well as running writing workshops for Years 5 and 6. He's inspired us all to read more and write creatively. Another great step in the Reading Revolution!
About a month ago the girl's year five and six football team participated in a county finals tournament (At Butlers Court School). Our first match was against Ash Hill and the match started at 9:15am. As the whistle blew for half time, we were one nil up with a goal from Flo due to an excellent pass from Charlotte. A few players were changed and the match continued. The referee's whistle blew and was soon followed by two quick goals from Amy ending that match with a result of three nil to Great Missenden!
Next on to a tougher match, against Bedgrove. In the first half Great Missenden struggled to score but with Jodie, Evie and Anishka in defense and Lily in goal we held them back. Sadly the same happened in the second half.
We got through to the next round, which meant we were up against William Harding. With a few passes between Izzy and Eva then up to Flo we were dominating but in the second half this was different...
We had a quick throw of from Gracie to Eva who tapped it on her foot to Amy then right in the back of the net. The whistle blew and the crowd went up in celebration as we were through to the Finals against Downley.
Downley are a very strong team with a lot of experience and two star players. It was very difficult to hold them back but we managed until one of their star players struck a goal in the corner. Eva with some dribbling skills passed it to Gracie then to Izzy and a one on one with the goalie gave izzy a chance to have a shoot and level the score. Taking a brilliant shot (hitting the crossbar) it bounced back to one of Downleys' players who cleared it and then the whistle blew.
A very well done to all of the team: Gracie, Flo, Jodie, Eva, Izzy, Evie, Charlotte, Anishka, Lily and Amy.

The Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools visited Year 6 this week! They taught us all about how to stay safe and avoid danger. We were shown life saving skills and how to react in a crisis. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience for both classes. We've all been practising our CPR and we're ready to save some lives!

On Thursday 13th November we were joined by loads of other school for a special singing festival. In total there were 253 children.
When we got into the hall we did some singing it was great! It loved it. We sang ‘Hannukah’ which was one of the songs.
When we had done that we made loads of noise! We were pretending to be fireworks. All the singing was fun but it tired me out! The ladies at the front told us all about the Music Service in Buckinghamshire. You can go there on a Saturday and play an instrument.
When we went outside for play we were allowed a biscuit and they were really yummy.
In the second half it was even better! It was really fun and the man playing the piano was amazing. So was Mrs Jacob and the other ladies teaching us.
Finally we did some more singing warm ups and songs. First the ladies at the front sang it while the man played the piano quietly and then we stood up and sang louder and louder. I had an amazing day!
