As you will read in the latest edition of the newsletter, the children have been immersed in their learning with aliens landing in the school grounds, trips and visitors and a whole lot of dressing up! The anticipation of World Book Day built gradually as the week progressed to Thursday! Who would be wearing what? Would the book characters be obvious to all? How would Mr Eaton and Mrs Richardson exceed their achievements from last year? Would the Early Years Team bring out their Alien Underpants as part of the fun? The school also enjoys generous commission from the books bought at the Book Fair; So thank you for your support as buying a book for your son or daughter will enable us to keep the library stocked with fresh reading material. Thanks to the English team for organising the day and the staff for their great sense of fun and participation in the event.
Congratulations to Mary and her team for achieving another 5 star review of the hygiene and cleanliness of the kitchen. As ever, the visits are unannounced and the high standards that Mary insists on have been recognised and celebrated with another certificate to display with all of her others. The children comment regularly on how much they enjoy school meals, with chicken pie being a firm favourite. Thank you to Mary, Beth, Sian, Nicola and Claire for all their hard work—the children clearly appreciate their meals.
Thank you to those who attended the PTA AGM on Thursday morning. The strong, active and dedicated team of parents working tirelessly to raise money provides us with the opportunity to update our computing provision, purchase materials to enhance learning such as the manipulatives in maths and the new handwriting scheme, pay for ice-creams during the Royal Wedding celebrations and Times Tables Rockstars to mention a few recent initiatives. Also, the fundraising events are brilliantly child-focused and so the children really enjoy them. We are so lucky to have you.
