“IT has been a sociable week here in school! Year 2 sketched examples of Tudor architecture on a short walk on Wednesday, whilst Year 1 examined different types of homes on Egremont Street. On Tuesday, Reception children climbed on our minibuses to meet some King’s Ely superheroes and had a wonderful time with Mrs Young, our school Nurse, as they discovered how the Medical Centre Team help us during a ‘show and tell’ in the garden at Bishop Woodford House. Today we have also begun our series of ‘At Homes’, welcoming Reception parents both online and in person to our Acremont Music Room. Thank you to Ms Gervasio for sharing the conversation in my absence, when topics from Classlist to Christmas were discussed.

“In a week of rapidly shifting sands from a grown-up perspective, I am pleased to report that the path of politics at Acremont has run smoothly. We have completed the first in this year’s elections for School Council and I know from conversation in the corridors and playground, that the children are very excited to hear who our class representatives will be this term. Carefully considering all of the thoughtful ideas that have been discussed this week, the newly formed Council will begin its business next week. The first point to consider will no doubt be which charity we will support during this academic year.

“As the leaves are turning and mornings become chilly, I am reminded of the approaching Harvest Festival on Thursday 6th October and the buzz at School and Nursery, as we begin to design and prepare for this year’s theme of ‘generosity and thinking of others’. The Service will take place in the Cathedral and we are excited to welcome the community of Fairstead House School to share in this event. As always, parents and friends of King’s Ely are warmly encouraged to join our congregation, to pause for a short time in our busy week to reflect on a time of the year that means so much to our local community as we not only give thanks, but also give much needed support via the Ely Foodbank. Please see the details in this week’s Acremont Newsletter of the much-needed goods that the Foodbank Team have suggested as donated items.

“With my warm wishes for a peaceful and restful weekend.”
