Very exciting news! We have been accepted to participate in the Writers Pen Pals Scheme. We are delighted to announce that Hana Tooke, author of the book The Unadoptables, is our very own pen pal.

We are looking forward to our correspondence with a professional author and some of the children can't wait until May, when The Unadoptables will be published.

Fantastic morning in year 4 with Mel Bex leading a gymnastics session.

A fantastic Sports day yesterday, with a huge number of parents who turned out to support.

The children had a wonderful afternoon competing in their events and the overall winners of Sports day 2019, for the first time in over 18 years was Macmillan House.🏆 

Well done to all the children for a great afternoon of sport and to all the staff of St Andrew's who made this such a successful event. 🎉

Our George Reed blue plaque has been unveiled at a small ceremony attended by pupils past and present, parents, governors and members of the North Sedgemoor History Society, who have sponsored the plaque. St Andrew's is proud of its asscociation with George Reed, the founder of our school and the plaque takes pride of place alongside his statue and the keystone from the original school. This plaque will now be part of the Burnham Heritage Trail. The unveiling was carried out by Freya Slade, a Year 3 pupil, and George Brown MBE, a pupil of the original St Andrew's School when it was located on the seafront. The students who contributed to the George Reed Exhibition at the library were those who were chosen to take part in the unveiling.

Some of you may have heard of 'Lost Words' (illustrated by Jackie Morris) which has become a very popular book. A recent crowd-funding scheme has meant that every primary school in Somerset has been presented with its own copy. There are fabulous illustrations and it's easy to see why it's taking schools by storm. Our copy has arrived! We also have a signed copy of The Snow Leopard, written and illustrated by Jackie Morris, who has left her own personal message. These two lovely books will be on display in the foyer.

Thank you for all your playground reading contributions! Your donations have helped this to be a real success. Playtime reading boxes will be available from next week!
