We were very proud of the TPPS children who performed a Maypole Dance, at the Kings Arms Pub in Newport Pagnell, on Sunday 5th May. The children had volunteered to take part, practising during lunchtimes in the weeks leading up to the event. They were amazing! The Mayor of Newport Pagnell was in attendance, and he was very impressed. The children were due to perform the dance twice, but were so excited they chose to perform it a third time (much to the enjoyment of the crowd). A big thank you must also go to the Year 6 children who volunteered to hold the Maypole steady, and ensured the ribbons were untangled and with the correct children. The event was well supported, and it was lovely to see so many of our children’s family members, and friends, in attendance.

Voice in a Million
It was an amazing day for KS2 choir, who arrived at Wembley SSE Arena at 1:45 in the afternoon after having left school at half past 12.
We waited with all the other schools and were ushered into a gigantic auditorium - then excitement really started bubbling. We took our seats and rehearsals kicked off at 3:30 with schools joining the choirs on the stage for the banner parade. Amidst lots of excited chatter, gleeful laughter and looking around in awe we settled down and rehearsed some songs together and then eagerly had our dinner. We donned our VIAM t-shirts, went shopping to buy some of the merchandise on display including glow sticks which we used for the magical effect when singing the songs.
At 7:15 the concert started and we sang our hearts out to the public, which included our families. We heard the back story of VIAM and its links with Adoption UK. We got back to Tickford Park at 11:45. Many were fast asleep on the coach, but some were still buzzing with the excitement of the day.
Thank you to all who brought in pennies to donate to this charity. What an amazing day we had!

World Poetry Day
Thursday 21st March is also World Poetry Day. Please can you sort through your favourite poems and, with your child, ‘pop a poem’ in their pocket to bring into school to share in class? The children will enjoy reading and sharing poems on that day.

World Down Syndrome Day
As some of you will know we have a child with Down Syndrome who attends Tickford Park. To raise awareness of this condition, there is a World Down Syndrome Day that takes place on the 21st March. This date – the 21st day of the 3rd month – represents the 3 copies of chromosome 21, which is unique to people with Down syndrome. This year marks the 12th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day, which is officially recognized by the United Nations. Children are invited to come into school that day with the most colourful odd socks they can find.
