Year 5 Residential - Mersea Island
We are looking forward to welcoming our year 5 children on their return from their residential trip to Mersea this afternoon. I have been in contact with the staff while they’ve been away and am pleased to report that they have all had a wonderful time. A huge thank you to our amazing staff who encouraged and supported the pupils and kept them safe while they were away from their families.

Next week is poetry week at Mead and we welcome back some old friends, Gill and Bill, who will be working with children in years 3 and 4-Hopefully some of you will be able to join us on Friday to see the children performing the poems they have learnt- details to follow.
