It has been another wonderful week at Cypress Upper filled with amazing learning. Year 6 are working very hard practising their end of term performance ‘The Next Big Step’ which they are looking forward to sharing with their parents. A very excited Year 3 headed off this morning for their trip to Littlehampton and we can’t wait to hear all about their adventures. Keep an eye on the website next week for a post. The newly formed Eco-Council have been busy meeting with Miss Binks and formulating a plan to help us to be more eco friendly and travel to school more sustainably.
This morning, we were treated to an amazing assembly by Lime class. They put together a fantastic performance of the book ‘Cinnamon’ and a rousing rendition of “Eye of the Tiger”. What a lot of talented actors and singers we have in Lime! You delivered your lines with confidence and sang with real enthusiasm. Thank you to Miss Patel, Miss Braithwaite and Mrs Joshi for all your hard work in preparing the assembly. What a wonderful way to start a Friday!
