New Arrivals!

ducklings 001While the world is celebrating the arrival of a new royal princess, Medmerry is proud to announce the safe arrival of six ducklings!

They hatched during Saturday night and are all being well looked after by their parents. Last year the parents were hatched using an incubator. We look forward to watching them grow during the summer term.

Look quietly into the enclosure and you might see them swimming on their small pond.

Imperial War Museum Visit


Year 6 and Year 5 visited the Imperial War Museum in London.  They had the opportunity to look at all sorts of exhibits, including: a spitfire; the fuselage of a bomber; a tank; and the remains of a Japanese fighter plane.  Year 6 took part in a workshop with two extremely kind and funny teachers and got to investigate artefacts that were key during the 1940s.


“It was fun!” Owen Jackson

“I really enjoyed it, we learnt lots of exciting facts.” Brandon Price

“It was a great experience, I’d like to go again.” Callum Kidwell

“The journey was a bit of a downer, but overall it was a great day.” David Nelson

Playground equipment grant

We are very pleased to have been granted £10,000 by  Baker’s Solar Farm Community Fund! We put in a bid to replace the playground equipment that had to be removed from the edge of the school field. The children will be consulted about how we should spend the money.  We are really pleased to have received this grant and it will make a considerable difference to the children during playtimes.
