Author visit

Some of the children in years 3 and 4 have spent a day working with a local author, ‘Christopher Joyce.’ The children created an author name,

used character cards and described the setting for their very own scarecrow story.

They thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

It was really fun and enjoyable. I learnt how to get more characters into my story writing. He shared some of his stories with us and they were amazing!’’ Ella Honeysett, year 4.

The sun shone to help make Sports day a really enjoyable experience for everyone. The children worked brilliantly in teams with the young children being well supported by our older children.

Thank you again to Mrs Edge for organising the event and helping to make it so successful.P1020986 resized         P1020994resized      P1030001resizedP1020987resized      P1030022resized     P1030038resized

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

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