A bus floats in the Thames

Yesterday the 14th June saw a group of children from St. Stephen's Junior journey to London by train to embark on a tour of London on a very special bus.The bus was none other than a modified landing craft from World War 2, so while it looked like a bus and travelled on roads like a bus, and it was also a boat.

After an hour or so tour of London the children were treated to a boat ride on the Thames without even having to get off the bus. London was absolutely filled with tourists, and we're pretty sure we were a big tourist attraction ourselves in our funny looking boaty mcbusface.

Jack Rose's musical performance to Years 5 & 6

Today pupils in Years 5 & 6 heard the musical talents of 15 year old Jack Rose and co-singer Zee with a captivating performance of popular tracks “Impossible” by James Arthur and “Supermarket flowers” by Ed Sheeran. Between the performances Jack and Zee spoke of their personal experiences of cyberbullying, discrimination and having their on line identity hacked.

The session then led on to the topic this week in school of British Values. Jack and Zee were amazed at our pupils knowledge and understanding saying “This is the first school we have been to where pupils knew all 4 British values and what they meant”. Pupils are keen to have them back and we are planning to book them once again next year.
