Christmas Dinner & Jumper Day!
It was lovely to see all our children enjoying their Christmas dinner whilst wearing their festive, Christmas jumpers. They all had fun opening their Christmas crackers and listening to the music whilst eating their lunch!
Our last Stay and Play took place on Friday 9th December at our Churston Avenue site. Thank you to all the parents that came along with their little ones to engage in some fun activities! We look forward to continuing our fun in 2023.
Year 6's Visit to the House of Commons
On Thursday 1st December, a handful of Year 6 children were invited to a reception hosted at the House of Commons to discuss the importance of free school meals, and to trial items from the new menu. The children's roles were to greet and to hold conversation with guests and MPs alike, sharing their positive views of Juniper school meals. The reception was highly attended, with MPs including Angela Raynor (Shadow Chancellor), Stephen Timms (MP for Newham) and Stephen Morgan (MP for Portsmouth South). All four Upton Cross children showed themselves to be articulate, warm and welcoming, which was remarked on by many of the attendees. We are incredibly proud of their great work, and look forward to them sharing back news of their day during assembly soon.
