As part of our ongoing Community Cohesion Partnership, where children are learning that they belong to a wider and more diverse community than their local one, with Yew Tree School in Aston, they visited each other this week.
The children had a fantastic day visiting Aston Hall and Aston Villa Football Club. Whilst at Aston Villa Football Club they visited the pitch, changing rooms and were given a special treat of an exclusive viewing of the Chair’s Private Box.
The Aston Villa tour guide said “Henley children were lovely and so well behaved.” He said that as a result of their exemplary behaviour he treated them to a special viewing of the Chair’s private box and that he’s never taken a group there before.
We then had the pleasure of Yew Tree School visiting us the following day. They had a tour of Henley including visiting St. John’s and St. Nicholas Church, the Guild Hall (where they learnt all about the history of Henley and the Court Leet) and finally they stopped off at our famous Henley Ice Cream Shop for a treat on the way back.
The High Bailiff, Court Leet commented that our children were superb and one pupil had even asked a question that he didn’t know the answer to but would research!
Henley Ice-cream Parlour staff commented on how very good our children’s behaviour and manners were.
Nasrin Ahmed (Yew Tree Y5 teacher) said that our school was “Really special and that our children were delightful and a credit to us”.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents for their help with supervising the children and for the PTA for financing their Ice Cream Treat.
Lastly a very well done to Year 4 and 5 we are very proud of you!
