Leon and the Place Between – whole school book
The week was kicked started by a visit from #bigtopmania who performed for the school and delivered workshops to all year groups.
Teachers then planned engaging lessons in art, English, Maths and Science linked to the story. A truly enjoyable week in school was had by all.

Easter Egg Hunt 2019
Once a week we are joined by ‘Poppy’ our Pet Therapy dog. She loves to hear children read and will sit quietly whilst they share a story with her. Here she is showing off her Christmas jumper.
Young Voices 2017
The school choir, led by Ms Seymour and Mrs Arthers, performed alongside 7,500 other children at London’s O2 Arena. They sang tracks including You’re the Voice, Birdhouse in your soul, Maliswe and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. What an incredible experience for all taking part.
Hertfordshire Chess League
Two teams represented the school on Friday 27th January, in the first of three evenings, as they took part in the oldest chess cup in Herts. Well done to all of the twelve players as we won three out of our four matches.
The London Chess Classic – December 2016
What a super event this was this year. Competing in our third Chess Classic the twenty children that represented the school did us proud. The day began with a training session with a chess teacher pupils then took part in a simultaneous game. Following that pupils were treated to a demonstration game with Laurence Trent and Chris Ward. The afternoon consisted of five games for the pupils as they played children in their own year group in a Swiss tournament. Our medal hall increased this year with a first place gold for Theo, silver for Shreya and three third place bronzes for Clayton, Gursimar and Toby. The school missed out on a cup for third place by just two points. As always the children represented the school wonderfully. I can’t wait for 2017’s London Chess Classic trip. Mrs O’Neill
The first Arnett Hills Bake Off. We were visited by Paul and Mary who judged our first ‘Bake Off’. Well done to the winners year 4.
We were visited by DHL and they taught us all about truck safety. There are thousands of trucks on the road and it is important that we know how to behave around them safely.
