Reception to Visit Mrs Armitage

Reception children are very excited as they are off to visit Mrs Armitage next Thursday. Mrs Armitage is a book character and features in Reception and Nursery’s Learning Journey: On the Move. Nursery will also visit Mrs Armitage very soon.

‘Who Am I’ Group

After the half term break we will be running a group for children aimed at exploring their sense of identity. The idea is to help children understand and feel positive about who they are. There will be more information soon.

Family Seal

Mr Owers and Mr Meadows are looking forward to working with the group of parents who have joined the Family Seal programme about to run in school. If anyone else is interested in joining in do let Mr Owers or Mr Meadows know.

Friday Morning Singing

Do remember to come along to our Friday morning sing -a -longs on a Friday morning before school. We meet at 8.30 till 8.45 in the hall. If you have any requests for songs do let us know.

On Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year 1 with 1 late mark and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Years 3 with 0 late marks. Fabulous! Well done to both classes for excellent punctuality.

Request from Nursery

Nursery need contributions of small wood off cuts please. They would also like a volunteer to make a wooden lid for their sandpit. If you are able to help let the nursery staff know directly or leave a message at the office.

Please Close the Gate

When you leave the school at times other than the beginning or end of the school day please remember to close the gate behind you and check that it is securely closed. It has been left open on a number of occasions recently.

Take Care When..

Here is a little road safety reminder. Please take extra care when walking out of Boyces Street into West Street. Please ensure your children walk with you rather than running ahead and possibly into the road to be hit by a car.

Half Term Break

We finish for the half term break on Friday 10th February and return to school on Monday 20th February.
