Easter Approaches

Easter Approaches
I cannot believe we are nearly at the end of the term with the Easter holidays nearly upon us.
It has been a super week at school with lots happening.
On Monday Class 5 displayed the wonderful clocks they had made in their DT sessions and they are now proudly displayed in the school library. If you have a minute please do pop in and have a look. I know they would love to show them off!
On Tuesday the Computer club, run by our Governor Mr Mike Hennessey, shared their efforts in our achievers assembly. It was a delightful short film that they had made all about our school values. We all thoroughly enjoyed. Well done Computer Club!
On Wednesday Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children had a wonderful afternoon taking part in an egg rolling competition. Unfortunately it was a bit too chilly to hold in the playground as intended but nevertheless great fun was held by all. It was fun for me to note all the deliveries of freshly boiled eggs arriving in the morning. Thank you all who brought eggs.
Today the children are thoroughly looking forward to the Disco's both Key Stage 1 and 2 which FODS have kindly organised and to round off the week there is always Super Friday to look forward to.
I wish you all a very happy holiday.
Kind regards
Jill Gardner


Sporting Success

During the last year the children and staff have worked hard to heighten the profile of sport in our school. We have entered teams for many more competitions and we have expanded the number of sporting clubs taking place during the week.

Our Year 5 and 6’s have been trained as young leaders and together with Mrs Garlick lead sporting activities during the lunch period.

We have worked hard to strengthen our sporting links with Wollaston School and I was very grateful to Mr Roberts and his sporting ambassadors for joining and assisting in our sports morning in July.

I am delighted to tell you that last week we heard that we had been awarded the Sainsbury’s Games Gold Award for sport.

Well done to all the children and thank you to all of you that have kindly transported and supported their children at events in the last year.

Finally, a huge thank you to Nicky Griffin and Sam Garlick, for their sheer hard work and enthusiasm in organising our sporting events this year.

Well done to all!





As you know we support different charities throughout the year. We try to make these relevant to the children or our families and this term we are collecting for the British Heart Foundation. We probably all know someone who has been affected by heart disease and know what an impact this can have on people and their families.
Tomorrow we will be taking part in the BHF ‘Wear it, Beat it’ Day so children are requested to wear something red to school on Friday 6th February. 
There was lots of discussion in the staff room today about who had anything red in their wardrobe and what shade of red was acceptable. I think there will be several on display tomorrow!
Best wishes
Jill Gardner
