As part of Health and Fitness week, Mr Malooq arranged for 4 inflatable activities to be set up on the field, and all the classes from Reception upwards had a chance to go out and try them out. Everyone had an a brilliant time. Thank you to Mr Malooq for arranging it, and to all the staff who helped to supervise to ensure that everyone stayed safe.


As part of their science topic, Year 3/4 went to Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire to look at mini beasts and their habitats.


The nursery children won a special party day for earning 340 dojo points. The morning children voted for a 'Superhero Rainbow' party and the afternoon children chose a 'Fairy Football' party. They made decorations and decided which party food to buy and which games to play.

We held our popular “Arbo’s Got Talent” show last Friday, and had some amazing talent on display. Well done to everyone who took part. Congratulations to the Class 3 All Stars who were the winners with their super singing and dancing to “Reach for the Stars”; they had obviously practised very hard! Congratulations also to Bilal Qaisar with his magic show and Class 5 with Fantastic 5’s Dance-off, who were the runners-up. You are all Stars!



Mrs Wynn very kindly came into school to help judge our handwriting competition and take the winners to choose a prize book from Waterstones. Congratulations to the winners - Sameul Khan, Rijah Naeem, Aasia Naveed and Hafsah Naseer, and a big thank you to Mrs Wynn for her generosity.
