Happy Friday everyone!


What a fantastic week we have had! It has been children's mental health week and we have all been 'finding our brave'. Starting the day with  wake and shake was a brilliant idea and one that I know the Mental Health Champions are hoping to continue in some way. The children, parents and staff all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and a huge thank you goes to Miss Gunnell for organising this.


Thursday was Miss Nadin's class assembly and by all accounts the children were a credit, sitting beautifully and sharing their learning. Well done China class!


Last night the year 5s attended the Nottingham playhouse to watch Holes. Although traffic was awful the children managed to quickly settle and enjoyed the performance. This morning I received an email from a member of the public who was sat in the theatre with our children. He stated 'Your pupils’ behaviour was – without exception – exemplary. In fact, they were far better behaved than many adult audiences with whom I’ve shared an auditorium! They are a credit to your school.' Well done year 5s - super proud. Thank you also to the parent's for transporting and the teachers for giving up their evening for this valuable experience.


Next week is safer internet week and we will be discussing with the children how to keep safe online. We know it can be difficult to monitor all activity in this digital age but need to remind parents that children should not be playing on age inappropriate games -specifically those which contain graphic violence or other unsuitable content as this can be deemed as a type of neglect and schools are being called to monitor these incidences.


Next Monday is the PTA meeting at the Soldiers and Sailors. -everyone welcome. 


We hope you all have a lovely weekend and look forward to next week.
