Dear Parents/Carers,

Please take time to talk about our school values for next week with your child. 

We promote mutual respect and tolerance so that adults and children have a good working relationship and engage with British values.

Next week’s school target is to remember to be kind and supportive of each other.

Thank you to all the people who have been supporting our PTA through the Co-op members charity scheme. We have received our first quarterly instalment of £500! Please encourage other Co-op members to nominate us as their charity, so that we can continue to raise essential funds for our EYFS project.

Friday, 23rd March – Sport Relief

Sport Relief supports the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people across the UK and worldwide, helping them live happier, healthier and safer lives. This year, our school will be hosting a Sport Relief Dance -A-Thon to try and raise as much money as possible for this worthwhile cause.

The children will start the day with a whole-school Freddie Fit session. Following this, there will be non-stop dancing throughout the morning, as each class takes a turn to show off their best moves.

To get the children in the mood, they may come into school wearing dance-wear for a £1 donation. Please feel free to donate more – all going to a good cause.

Thank you for helping us to celebrate World Book Day (even though we were a day late!) The children look fabulous in their costumes, and we really appreciate the effort they have gone to.

As you know, Learning Reviews will take place next Wednesday. The school will be closed to pupils (although Key Stage 2 pupils should attend their Learning Review) as this is one of our allocated closure days.

The photographer will visit school next Thursday, 8th March to take class photos.

We are delighted that Miss Sowden will be joining our staff team after Easter to cover Mrs Strathearn’s maternity leave. Miss Sowden has already visited the school and met the children, and we are sure she will be an excellent addition to our school.

As part of our Easter celebrations, we invite children to design and make an Easter Garden at home. These can be brought into school on Monday 26th March so that we can take them to church where they will be displayed during Holy Week. The gardens should reflect themes from the Easter story, and we have attached ideas that you may find helpful. The PTA have kindly purchased some prizes for the best gardens.
