On Friday 19th January, we held our first Newport Community café; it was decided by staff that the first of this monthly event would be to invite grandparents from the community into school and we had a fabulous turn out. It was great to see the Year 6 showing their organisational skills in setting up the hall and in preparing for the event and then to see them show great maturity in running the event when our guests arrived. Everyone enjoyed tea, coffee and cake (that was the best bit for some of the Year 6’s!) and there was much flowing conversation and game playing for the next hour and a half. We received lovely feedback from a number of grandparents, which was lovely to hear and many were looking forward to coming back again. Next month’s community café is going to be led by Year 5 and they will be visiting Debden Grange for banana bread and a sing-a-long!
