We thoroughly enjoyed our 'iRock' assembly with Josh on Monday 25th March. He brought in rock instruments including a keyboard, electric guitar and drums and played some of our favourite songs. We loved singing along and clapping to the beat! Some of us were even lucky enough to go up on stage and perform in our own rock band!
If your child is interested in joining up with iRock, please check the letter that came out with details of how to sign up. It was such a popular event and we are sure that many children would love this opportunity!
Red Nose Day
On Friday 15th March, we had a brilliant day raising vital funds for Comic Relief. We enjoyed wearing something red to school and of course, the most exciting part was buying and wearing our red noses! Check back on here to see the total amount of money that we raised...
World Book Day
On Thursday 7th March, we had a fantastic World Book Day in school! It was lovely to see the variety of book characters that the children came dressed as. The children enjoyed sharing story time with different adults across the school and our book character parade was a brilliant opportunity to appreciate everyone's efforts. Thank you for your support with this. We also enjoyed thinking of some really strange places to read stories together! What an amazing day we had.
Thank you to all those parents who attended the meeting on Wednesday 13th February. We had a lovely discussion about their thoughts on aspects of school life and how they think we could make this school even better. Some of the topics included: communication – they said parents like the weekly newsletters. They feel there are some language barriers. Library – they liked the idea of have a larger, better equipped library. Safeguarding – they felt the school needed to have safer boundaries around the perimeter. PTA – they liked the idea of setting up a PTA to plan and hold events and create some funding for those extras that make the children’s experiences better. If you are interested in being part of a PTA then please do contact the school. We will take the names of all those interested and arrange a further meeting to set this up.
We are very excited to announce that after February half term we will be introducing the children to new class names to replace the colours that we currently use. We have chosen to go with woodland animal names to embrace the lovely woodland areas that we have around.
As from half term the new class names will be as follows:
RECEPTION Purple Class to Badger Class. Blue Class to Bat Class.
YEAR 1 Yellow Class to Owl Class. Green Class to Rabbit Class.
YEAR 2 Red Class to Hedgehog Class. Orange Class to Squirrel Class.
We are confident that the woodland animal theme will excite and engage the children. Over the half term break it would be lovely, if together with your child, you could find out some interesting facts about their new class animal ready to share on the first day back. The Monday after half term will be devoted to learning all about the class animal and producing some beautiful art work to go on display.
Couch to 2k
On Wednesday 30th January, we had a visit from Stephanie Twell, an Olympic athlete who has competed in two Olympic Games! We are very excited to announce that she will be starting an after school running club ‘From Couch to 2k’, alongside Mr Kleboe, starting from next Wednesday and running for 6 weeks. This is a great opportunity for you to take part in a fun exercise club with your children and we are delighted that so many of you have already signed up. We hope to see more of you signing up in the coming days.
