Happy friday! It looks like it's going to be a hot weekend.


Last Saturday we took part in the Long Eaton Carnival and came 1st in the walking party category! (3rd year in a row). It was a lovely event with a huge turn out, thank you to all who took part and a special thanks to the PTA for the organisation and amazing car! Looking forward to next year already although hoping it might be a slightly more glamorous theme!


On Monday our reception children went on their Manor farm trip and had a lovely day! Year 1 and 2 had their trip on Tuesday and what superstars they were! The weather was less than kind but all adults reported that the children got on and had a great time! Super resilient!


This week we have had 5 work experience students in various classes and a PGCE trainee. We are more than happy to support our community in this way and hope we can inspire some future teachers.


On Wednesday the Friends quiz at the Harrington arms was extremely well attended and a lot of fun. Although the staff table didn't win by a long shot we were delighted to support this fundraising event.


On Wednesday it was Mrs Ganguly's class assembly and it was brilliant! What a god idea to show us  a snippet of all they have done throughout the year. The Children were confident and knowledgeable-Well done Asters!


It has been a busy change round week too with year 6 doing their various transition days and the class swaps. The teachers take a lot of time to determine the best placing of the children using a variety of factors. We believe that the new class groups are in the best interests of all the children and the children all seemed happy!


Next week

Monday our Chinese visitors arrive and we have a full itinerary organised for them.

On Tuesday we are hosting a forest school day with visitors attending from other schools.

On Wednesday it is picnic day and the weather is looking promising!

Thursday is EYFS assembly and the Family THRIVE meeting after school. 

Friday is Sports day and summer fair. Please ensure your child has a hat for this!
