Happy Friday everyone!

This week was Chinese New Year and year 2 put on a great performance complete with Chinese dragon! Check out the twitter pictures.

We have updated our spelling system inline with our new spelling shed programme. This means that the children will be given a weekly list of spellings which follow a pattern. They need to learn this list each week  and will then be tested on them. Any questions please contact school to speak with Mrs Potter or Miss Berrington - our literacy coordinators.

On Wednesday we held our first China exchange meeting for current year 4 and 5 children and this was very positive. Details of this meeting can be found in the parent's tab. The feedback was very positive and we are hoping that this will be the start of an ongoing exchange programme for our children.

Candytuft's class assembly gave us information on all things Spanish and showcased the children's amazing geographical knowledge as well as their maraca skills! They spoke clearly and confidently. Well done Candytufts!

Next week we will be adding up the whole class attendance scores to see which class will be the winners for this half term. Our attendance % is good this term so thank you to all our parents for their support with this.

On Monday 11th it is the PTA meeting. If anyone is interested in joining the PTA please make contact. They are a brilliant team of individuals who help the school in lots of different ways.
