Headteacher's Welcome

School Council and Active Travel

Well done to our School Council who produced this fabulous poster this week which shares lots of their thoughts about Active Travel. They all agreed that Active Travel to school is good for our health and good for the planet too. Thanks to those families who made an extra effort to come to school in an active way for Active Travel Fortnight. We would really like everyone to try to come to school in an active way as often as possible - this is for the health, well being and safety of all our children! 

Thanks to everyone for supporting 'World Down Syndrome Awareness Day' by wearing odd socks to school on Thursday! We had an assembly on Monday where we talked about the 'Lots of Socks' campaign and the focus 'end the stereotypes'. We talked about what a stereotype is and the importance of not making assumptions, for example about what anyone can or cannot do or what they may like or dislike. You can find out more about the campaign here.

Super Socks Koalas!!

 Clubs After Easter

Clubs will go live at 7:00pm on Tuesday 26th March. A few things to note:-

  • Choir is a 9 week block - the children will be working towards their end of year Summer Concert which will take place on 25th June; children will be expected to attend all 9 sessions. There will be lots to learn so children need to join next half term if they wish to take part in the concert.
  • Dodgeball is changing to Football outside on Fridays.
  • We have a new Multi-sport club starting on Tuesdays.
  • Forest School is available for Reception children again.
  • For details of each activity, please read the individual information sheets.



Details of the two final Spring Term activities can be found below. We will also be serving refreshments at the Reception Spring Concert and the End of Term Easter Bonnet Parade.
Easter Egg Hunt. This will take place on Wednesday next week - please make sure you have signed your child up on Parent Pay if you wish them to take part.
Rainbow Raffle. Thanks for all the donations.  The raffle will be drawn at 1:50pm on the afternoon of the Easter Bonnet Parade. Mrs Hawkins will pick out the winners at the end of term Spring Bonnet Parade on Thursday 28th. Good luck!
*Sensory Garden - Call for Help Planting*  The weather is looking dry this Sunday morning so we’re planning to start planting! If anyone would like to join us, please let us know as we’d very much welcome the extra hands. Can't wait to see the kids really start to enjoy it!
