It gives Mr Mann great pleasure to present the results of the McCain’s Field to Fork Potato Challenge, 2017.
Our total Ripple weight was 8.850kg. Awesome!
All potatoes have been delivered to the respective canteens and Mr Mann has it on good authority that both Rose and Sharon have some yummy treats for all children tomorrow with our potatoes.
There will also be a visit from Mr Potato man at Suffolk Road during the Dinner hour.
A huge thank you to all participants and well done one and all.
Altogether now: “One potato, two potato, three potato more…”

Well done to everyone who took part in our, ‘crack-ing’, egg-citing, Easter Egg Art Competition. We were all so impressed by the incredibly high levels of creativity and detail. There were so many different designs I am sure the judges had a very hard job choosing the winners. Thank you all for your hard work and have a lovely holiday.
Many congratulations to Bradley and Ollie, winners of the Sports Togetherness Day. They choose a cheery tree for the school and here they are, having proudly planted it, with their winning certificate. Many congratulations, boys!
Year 6 girls at the Westbury – fundraising at breaktime for equipment for school. Their own idea. This has now led to them planning some further fundraising activities as part of the Summer Fete – watch this space!
