We are supporting the UNICEF appeal to raise money for child refugees. Please send any change to the office, where we have a collection jar.
Thank you Mrs Sadler.
On Friday 29th April, 2 teams from Freeman’s entered the Wellingborough and District section of the Sainsbury’s Schools Games in gymnastics. The children had worked hard to learn the 2 set routines which they performed superbly, as well as fabulous attempts on the vault. Congratulations to the Year 3 and 4 team, who came second in their competition, and to the year 5 and 6 team who won! Both teams move forward into the county finals at the end of May. Well done to both teams, such fabulous effort from all of you, you were incredibly well behaved and so encouraging to your team mates and other teams too. A special mention to the Year 5 and 6 team who were also awarded the determination award for the day.
Eight of our Year 6 children attended an Able Writers Day at Wrenn Academy led by science fiction author Nick Cook. They obviously came back inspired judging by the SF monster faces they are pulling!

Our Strings Project has now begun and we are learning to play violins and cellos. We will be practising in earnest over the next 10 weeks and look forward to performing to our families in a musical extravaganza at the end of our Project. Please put the date into your diary (invitations to follow in due course); Thursday 30th June, 10am, in the school hall.
Wow! Thank you to everyone who has helped raise over £550 for Brain Tumour Research and Mikey’s war! The children (and staff!) looked amazing, had lots of fun taking part in the hat inspired activities, and enjoyed some delicious cake too.
Mrs Graves has also had huge amounts of fun finding a different hat to wear everyday, thanks to Mrs Sadler’s challenge.
Thank you to everyone for supporting these amazing causes.
