Newsletter 21 April 2016

Welcome back! I trust everyone had an enjoyable Spring holiday and the children are looking forward to this Summer term. I particularly want to welcome back Mrs Easingwood, who has returned from maternity leave. I know that she, and all staff, are looking forward to the numerous experiences and opportunities planned for this term.

Thank you to all parents and carers who have successfully setup your online ParentPay account. It is essential that every pupil has their account activated, even if no payment is required, as the weekly menu choices are now made using this system. If you have been unable to complete activation, please contact the school office as soon as possible.

 Book fair

Thank you to everyone who supported the book fair at the end of last term. We raised £328.95 and this earned us £82 in commission which we were able to spend on books for the school.

 School review

A note was sent out earlier this week about the re-scheduled ‘school review’. We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the numerous strengths of our school but, equally, are keen to know how we can improve. I will share a report with parents.

 Hot weather

It has been wonderful to have the sun shining this week! However, with the sun come some considerations: please ensure your child has a water bottle in school; please consider applying suncream on particularly hot days; please ensure packed lunches are emptied and cleaned out everyday (they get smelly on warm days!).


I would encourage those that can to join us on Tuesday morning for our healthy eating workshop. Led by an NHS Healthy Living team, you will experience some of the activities the children enjoyed last term. Please contact the office to confirm your attendance.

 Grace: I have enjoyed being outside today with the toys, I liked the bikes the best.

Alicia: I like the castle we made at our construction site. Henry and Leo helped me.

Jack; I’ve liked being outside on the bikes. My favourite bike is the red one with 2 seats.

Megan; I’ve liked having our snack outside in the sunshine. We had a warm roll with ham in and cheese at the side. It’s nice to be back.
