And of course the fantastic burger BBQ.

Do come along and have some Friday night fun!

News from Braeside!

14000 steps to Drew’s pond and back, blessed with good weather and the children have dipped, measured and scavenged alongside the river banks.

Your children have provided us with some excellent laughs and their resilience and positivity has shone through along with the sun.
Currently they are showering (well …… some) and preparing for the talent show.

Next update tomorrow morning

Hopefully the 5 miles will ensure a good nights sleep.

Please Support our Valiant Runners!

Five intrepid teachers from Malmesbury C of E Primary School are dusting off the Lycra to run the Bath Half-Marathon on 17th March 2019. Their plan is to raise money to build an exciting and inspiring outdoor classroom for our children. Outdoor learning is a wonderful way for children to gain new knowledge and experience, so the teachers thought they’d give them the best possible start by getting outside themselves and training for this mighty sporting feat.

The five runners vary widely in ability and experience – and at least one of them has very dodgy knees – but the important thing is that they are all passionate about giving the children the best-possible learning environment.

Any donations you can make towards their efforts are hugely appreciated. You can donate via
