Mrs Stephenson's retirement street party

On Friday we had a special ‘street party’ on the school field for Mrs Stephenson’s retirement. We sang some very special songs, gave Mrs Stephenson some beautiful cards and presents and then Mrs Shiels even dressed Mrs Stephenson up in traditional  ‘Strudel national costume’ (for the story behind this you need to know about the recent Reception/Year 1 sleepover adventure to the magical Kingdom of Strudel). The teachers made a recorder orchestra and played London’s Burning and Mrs Barnett made and decorated a beautiful cake and over 100 small cakes, each bearing the school badge.

It was a really lovely occasion and Mrs Stephenson was genuinely surprised and delighted by this total surprise and would like to thank everyone for their kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.
