Principal’s message:

Well that’s the end of our second full term and hasn’t it flown by (they do say time flies when you’re having fun)!

This week was the second chance this year to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss their progress. Thank you for all your positive comments on their report cards.

I’m sure you will have seen from Facebook that we have had a very successful term with regards to sport. From football to dance to gymnastics to cross country, we have been able to compete at a very high level and give as many children the chance to represent the school as is possible. Whilst we do celebrate winning, what has been even more impressive is what great sportsmen and women our children are: cheering on the other teams, showing respect to judges and referees and behaving impeccably at the venues. I do, however, need to invest in a larger trophy cabinet after all the success that we have been having and I’m sure this will continue next term also.

Today is the KS1 Easter Bonnet Parade. What a creative bunch you are and the catwalk parade will be simply amazing! Just before the catwalk, a special visitor will have arrived at KS1- the Easter Bunny! If it’s anything like previous years, the children and staff will hardly be able to contain themselves – pictures will be posted to Seesaw shortly.

We have been rocking out in Reception today as the children were visited by several real-life musicians! They were treated to the drums, guitar, piano, flute and tuba. The musical extravaganza ended with the children holding their own marching band parade using instruments that they have made themselves.

You will also have received a letter via email about the clubs that will be on offer next term. Separate letters will be sent out in due course to book places on these clubs.

So that just leaves me to wish you all a lovely Easter break – hopefully in the sunshine! We will see you all again on Monday 8th April. A polite reminder that KS1 starts at 8:45 and KS2 at 9 so please make sure your child is there on time.

Happy Easter- have an eggcellent time!

Mrs Crowther
