Children’s Parade

Well it didn’t rain thank goodness! We all enjoyed the children’s parade and we looked amazing despite the dull day. The samba band added to the fun with brilliant rhythms. Thank you to the samba band, Mr Brazil for walking backwards all the way, to everyone who joined us on the day and to those who helped create the giant sieve and all that went with it. It was worth all the hard work . Well done everyone!

Violin Performance

Our violinists performed in assembly on Tuesday. It was apparent how much they practise by the brilliant performance they put on for us. This was also an opportunity for children to consider if they would like to learn the violin. Ask at the office if you are interested.

Albion in the Community

We were rather let down by the Albion’s adopt a player scheme as we only had a couple of visits from only one of the players. So to say sorry children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 joined in with a variety of activities led by the Albion in the community team.

Please Help

Please can you help your child by ensuring they have a named PE bag to keep their named PE kit in. The PE bag should hang on their peg. You can also help your child by ensuring you check lost property regularly, take home wellingtons and other bits and bobs that come in to school. The cloakroom areas often look extremely untidy. The children are encouraged to keep their things organised and tidy and it helps them if their things are named and they have bags etc that can hang on their pegs for PE kits etc. Please could you also take lunchboxes home daily. I often have to throw lunch boxes away as they are full of old mouldy food. Not a job I enjoy. Please make sure your child has a proper named, clean lunchbox rather than carrier bags. Thank you.

Class Photos

The school photographer will be in school on Thursday 24th May to take whole class photos of each year group for you to purchase.

She is also asking if there is anyone who can perform live music during the afternoon. So if you are in a band and can join us for the afternoon please let us know.
The street party takes place from 2.00 pm till 4.00pm.It will of course be lots of fun so do come along.
