Headteacher's Welcome

This week has been Science Week! It has been a fabulous week for the children with lots of exploring, investigating, experimenting, predicting and finding out.

We have had a number of visitors in school to deliver workshops, we have had a variety of scientists in to share knowledge about how they use science in a range of workplaces – thank you to all those parents who were able to offer some of their time and expertise to us this week!

There have been rockets launched, eggs dropped, seeds planted, materials tested, slime made.

Have a look at our whole school gallery where you can see some of the science taking place.

Science creates wonder for young minds!

Extra-Curricular Clubs After Easter 

We have extended our offer of clubs after half term with three new and exciting additions:
Tuesdays: Ruggereds and STEM                        Wednesdays: French
Clubs will go live on ParentPay on Mon 28th Mar at 7:00pm. 

How Active is Your Child?

Please complete by Wednesday 30th March

Our school has a new digital survey tool for gaining an insight into both parents' and children's opinions, thoughts and ideas. 'Koboca' is an online survey and test generator. By using information gathered from these surveys insightfully we would be better equipped as a school to address and target identified findings and gather opinions. 

We have been asked by our School Sport Partnership 'Arches' to conduct an initial survey regarding physical activity, which will take less than 5 minutes to complete at home with your child. By completing the survey it will give a valuable insight into the physical activity levels of our children. 

To complete this survey please click on the link below:

Please drop your child off as usual in their classroom and then queue outside at the front of school. Parents will enter via the main entrance: the door will open at 9:00am. The PTA will be serving refreshments - payment is by cash only. 

If you would like to order a USB with a video of the performance, please log into ParentPay to order. 

We are mindful that many families will be looking forward to a break over the holidays and as we are still seeing Covid cases in our school community we kindly ask that :-

  • All adults wear a face covering whilst inside the building
  • All adults sanitise hands on arrival

Do not come into school if you have any Covid symptoms or have tested positive.

Notes from the Teachers 

We are planning to invite parents into school to drop in, look at your child's  books and meet teachers informally after the Easter holidays.
This will take place as follows:-
Y1 and Y2 children - Elephants, Kangaroos, Lemurs, Penguins, Turtles. 
Tuesday 26th April - After school until- 5:00pm.
Reception Children  - Bears, Giraffes, Koalas
Wednesday 27th April - After School Until- 5:00pm.
 
After School Club will run as normal on both days until 6:00pm. 

We plan for this to be a 'drop in event' but if Covid cases continue to rise we may need to limit numbers and therefore ask parents to book a slot as we did previously in the Autumn term. Further details will be sent after the Easter Holidays so we can assess the situation closer to the time.
