A Fantastic French Day

Staff and pupils celebrated the launch of teaching French as a Modern Foreign Language this week.
This term all children from year two up visited the National Gallery, in London, to study ‘The Bathers at Asnieres’ by Georges Seurat. As part of the gallery’s Take-One-Picture Project pupils produced some stunning pieces of work and hosted an exhibition in the school hall. Some children recreated the painting; others made models, imagined what it would be like to be one of the characters in the picture or researched life in France during the nineteenth century.
On Thursday 24th October everyone dressed up as people from French speaking countries. At lunchtime they ate a delicious French meal. Then in the afternoon, the ‘Friends of Suttons’ organised a balloon race. All children released either a blue, white or red balloon. The balloons looked spectacular against the bright blue sky. The day was great fun. A day all the children will remember for a long time!

Harvest Festival 2013

Today pupils across the school came together for our Harvest Festival Assembly. Each year group presented a small item to the school based on this. Thank you to those Parents/Carers who were able to come to this event.
As usual, our families have greatly supported this event by donating food for the Rainham Food Bank.  This is a worthwhile local charity which helps families in need.

Thank you to everyone for your support.
