I can't quite believe we are already halfway through the year! We have had a short, but jam-packed half term. The children studied Yinka Shonibare in Take One Picture week. Children across the school looked at African prints and patterns in food, textiles, paint and sculpture. The art will be on display from next half term. 

 I hope you found your child's Spring report and Parents' Evening useful. There will be a longer report at the end of the year and a final Parents' Evening.  We have also sent some information about Keeping your Child Safe online. You can find the letter here. There will be further information from the NSPCC following after half term.

After School Club and Breakfast Club

Because we are aware of the long waiting list for places, we have expanded Breakfast Club and After-school Club. There are places available in both. After-school Club are using the Glassroom for younger children. If you would like a place, please fill out a form in the office.

Year 4 Sleepover

Year 4 have been invited to a sleepover in school where they will be completing art activities and a camp fire. Their kit list can be found here and has been sent separately. We can't wait to see you all. 

Road Safety

We have had a couple of near misses recently where cars have nearly run over Miss Lidington, our lollipop person! She does a great job helping us all cross the road and we all have a responsibility to help keep her safe. 

Drivers, when you see a School Crossing Patrol Officer step into the road :

  • You must stop to allow people to cross the road (Rule 87 of the Highway Code).
  • You should always stop a safe distance away from the crossing patrol.
  • After people have crossed the road, you must not move off until the patrol officer has returned to the pavement and signalled you to do so.

We can all get impatient and frustrated sometimes when driving and held up on our journey, but the safety of children is everybody‚Äôs responsibility and drivers can do their bit for helping patrols cross children safely by being patient when asked to stop by the patrol person.


Book Week- Volunteers

Book week this year is in the week beginning 27th February, with dress up day on Thursday 2nd March. The theme of the week is "Traditional Tales" and children will be looking at traditional tales from different cultures. All the children will be helping make different types of books and there will be a book swap station for people to leave a book and take a new book.

We are also asking for parents or family members who could tell a story to the children. This could be a story from your culture or a fond story from your childhood. Please speak to your class teacher. 

A Big Thank You

A big thank you to the PTSA- over the next few weeks, a shelter for the KS1 playground and some drinking fountains will be installed. All of these were paid for by the PTSA and the hard work of all the volunteers. Thank you to all the people that came to the quiz on Wednesday.
