It is official - we are Golden!
We want to acknowledge and thank the many people, across the Junior and Senior Schools at Alleyn’s, who have helped us gain Gold accreditation in Southwark under the TfL STARS scheme.
Our achievement was the combination of so many activities such as the cycling clubs, the “bike-it” crew, assemblies and lessons on cycling and personal safety, the Safe Routes to School Committee, the Eco-Council and other school committees, “Walk to School Week", the "cycle-to-work” scheme and the general encouragement of the pupils and staff to cycle, scooter or walk to school, that has made this possible.
The Chatterbox summer issue has 52 pages of news, interviews, articles, quizzes and things to make and do in the holidays. Our Year 6 Magazine Club have worked incredibly hard to put together content that will appeal to every pupil from Reception up to Year 6. So happy summer reading!

Year 3 are the final year group to share their work inEd-Word and it is definitely worth waiting for. Also, look out for Science, Sport, Art, Music, Library and our Headmistress’s Report for 2014-2015. We hope you enjoy these very special end of year issues.
Bike it Crew survey
We had lots of fun finding out how everyone currently travelled to school and then how everyone would like to travel to school. The Bike it Crew were happy that cycling seemed to be a very popular option!
British Schools' National Modern Biathlon Championships
At the championships held at the end of March in the QE Olympic Park and Aquatics Centre, four of our girls (pictured) came third in the U11 competition and in the U11 boys' competition the Alleyn's Junior School A team came 2nd and the B team 10th. We are very proud of our pupils who have done so well in competing against 8,000 children from all over Britain.

Reception enjoyed painting and collecting leaves during their first visit to Forest Schools.
We are 23!
Alleyn's Junior School is 23 years old. Our school captains blew out the candles and each made a wish on behalf of the children in the school for a successful year ahead. We then sang happy birthday.
Year 5 pupils enjoyed an overnight stay at Bushcraft learning how to light fires, make animal traps and survive in the forest.
