On the 5th July year 3 did a sleepover in the school. It was really fun and we did lots of activities including: painting, swimming, rounders, orienteering and ICT. Then we went off to our tents to put our cosy pyjamas on. We went to 6W and someone special (Mr Hayes) came to read us a bedtime story whilst we drank hot chocolate. We went off to our tents at 9.45 and we were allowed to talk for a while until the teacher who stayed the night came around and told us to start going to sleep. It took quite a long time to get to sleep because it was so windy and rainy. In the morning we woke up very early so we went back to 6W to watch some TV whilst our breakfast was prepared. At 7.30 we ate our breakfast the we packed up our bags and put them in Year 1. We watched Lego Batman in Year 2 whilst we waited for our parents to come and get us. We were all so tired but had had a great time!
Mr Sperring, Mr Cordiner and Mrs Tomlin took the year 5/6 Tag Rugby team to the Bucks and Milton Keynes School Games on Thursday. They had already beaten numerous schools to reach this stage, as had the other schools participating. They came across some very talented players and performed extremely well. All of the adults present were extremely proud of the attitude shown by all of the children.

Year 6 have returned from their wonderful trip to France! A big thank you goes to the children for their outstanding behaviour and consistent enthusiasm! We loved the trip, and we're sad it's over!
Here are all of the poems sent from France, in order:
To our lovely parents, we're here safe and sound,We've very excited about the fun that's inbound,
Our first day in France, has been such a blast,
We're loving the sunshine, let's hope it can last!
We've settled in nicely, unpacked and had tea,
We've explored the chateau, there's so much to see!
There's fields and courts and pitches galore,
There's a shop and a games room and very much more,
The pool looks so lovely, can't wait for a dip,
Thank you so much for this wonderful trip!
Day two of our trip, it's been quite a day!
We've been to a French school to parle francais, We've made a great impression with everyone there,
We've made a few friends called Jean Paul and Pierre.
The chocolate factory was such a delight,
'Des Lis' was delicious; we loved every bite!
The pool was a welcome
Great Missenden School's RSPCA week was a resounding success! The week of themed assemblies inspired some fantastic celebrations of animals, awareness of animal issues and the work of the RSPCA.
We ended RSPCA week in style; Friday was RSPCA Day! The children were given the opportunity to dress as animal to raise money for the charity, as well as take part in RSPCA themed lesson organised by their teachers (who in Great Missenden tradition, also dressed for the occasion). The RSPCA stall was hugely popular and congratulations go to Sam from Year 5 for winning Bobo, the giant soft Panda!
We were delighted that the donations and purchase of RSPCA gifts came to a total of £633.08. What a fantastic outcome! We cannot thank all the children enough for their kindness and generosity. This money will make a real difference to animals in need in our local area.
On May 12th the Year 5 children went on their residential trip to PGL Caythorpe. They tackled climbing walls, high ropes, raft building and even abseiling! They were extremely well behaved and all had an excellent time (including the teachers)! The Year 5 team and the rest of the staff were very proud of them.
