Thank you to KG who gave a memorable performance in their Year Group Assembly last week! It was lovely to see how they have developed since the start of the year. Well done KG. Well done teachers.
You did a great job!
ECAs cancelled on Friday
Due to the preparations for our Community Day on Saturday, which involves delivery of some heavy equipment, this Friday’s ECAs have been cancelled to ensure the students safety. The clubs which are run by outside providers will be made up later in the term.
We also ask that all students are off campus by 3 pm at the latest to facilitate the assembly of the equipment. The field will be closed to all students from 2.30 pm.
Car parking tomorrow morning
Tomorrow morning the Y5 and Y6 are heading off on their residential trips, and similar to last week, we will need to make changes to car parking arrangements. Ideally children should be dropped off in the Drop-Off Zone, from where they will be escorted into school by TAs and LSAs, removing your need to park.
As the buses should be away by 8.15am-8.30am at the latest, we have agreed that children in Foundation Stage can arrive at school a little later, after the buses have left.
We understand that parents of the Y5 and Y6 parents may want to park to help the children with their luggage and also to wave them off on their trip. As the available parking will be very limited we will open the small staff car parks to parents (accessed from soi 20), but obviously it will help the situation if tomorrow people can be dropped off by drivers or come to school by taxi or shuttle bus.
Thank you in advance for your support with this.
As the Foundation Stage and Primary Book Week gets closer, may be you want to start thinking about costumes for the Annual Book Character parade? Mrs Leanne gives some details below…
It's that wonderful time of the year again when children can begin thinking about which book character to get dressed up during our annual Book Character Parade!
This year’s Book Week runs from 21st-24th March. There will be events and competitions galore for the children to get involved in, which will help to further instill a love of reading and books. On the Friday of Book Week, all students (and staff) should come to school dressed as a character from a book.
As a homage to one of the best-loved children's authors, Roald Dahl, we are encouraging children to get dressed up as their favourite character from any of his amazing books. This website will give you some tips and ideas for this. It would be lovely to see as many of Dahl’s characters as possible brought to life, but if your child has a particular favourite character who is not one of his creations, then that is ok too!
Details of upcoming Book Week events and competitions will be shared with everyone soon. For now, everyone just needs to start thinking of their unique book character costume.
