NEWS AND EVENTS

 

 

We have had a very busy half-term including Book Week, Parents/Carers Evenings, Comic Relief and Stem Week.  We are now looking forward to our Easter egg competition before we break up for the Easter holiday on Friday 12th April 2019 at the normal time of 3.15pm.  Children will return to school on Monday 29th April 2019.

 

EASTER EGG COMPETITION

We are running our Easter egg competition from Monday 8th April 2019.  The children are invited to decorate a boiled egg at home and bring it into school.  The eggs will be displayed in the school hall and judged on Thursday 11th April 2019.  There will be a winner from every class and the prizes will be chocolate Easter eggs.

 

SPONSORED READ FOR COMIC RELIEF

 A big thank you to all of the children who took part in the 'Sponsored Read for Comic Relief', we had a fantastic day and as always thank you to all of the parents/carers for requesting and collecting sponsor money.  We raised an amazing total of £2583.25

 

STEM (SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHS) WEEK

We had a wonderful time during STEM Week.  The children took part in all sorts of activities including building bridges, designing and making houses of hay, straw and bricks, making magic potions and colour experiments.  We also had a special assembly by a company called Mad Science to promote their new after school club.  A letter has been sent to Reception, year one and year two children giving details of the club.

 

BOOK WEEK

We all had a fantastic week during Book Week. We had a performance of the Wizard of Oz from the M and M Theatre Group which the children loved. We had a visit from the Children's Author Grant Koper, who read stories to the children and introduced his new book 'Grannies Knickers Flew Away. We did lots of reading activities on World Book Day on 7th March and on the 8th March the children were invited to dress up as their favourite book character, we had some gorgeous costumes and thoroughly enjoyable day.
