Welcome to this week's updates.

This week we have had 2 important visits in to school.

School council led by Mrs Gunnell held an audience with Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal. They asked him lots of questions regarding his role including if he had ever met the queen! Councillor Athwal has agreed to arrange a local area litter pick with the children, something they were very keen on and also to fix a date for them to hold one of their meetings at the council house!

Year 2 welcomed our local PCSOs ( local community police) in to their classroom to talk about being safe whilst out and about specifically 'stranger danger'.

Thursday was odd socks day and Bluebell classes assembly. They did a great job and incorporated a new song for us all to learn as well as their class song 'Eye of the tiger!' Well done Poppies.

It has been assessment week this week and the children have been working hard. You will be getting their progress updates on an interim report on Friday 29th March.

Next week the work starts for the new class block. Please be aware that heavy vehicles may be coming in and out of the staff car park and extra care should be taken when dropping off and picking up.They will be on site for about 3 weeks but hopefully Miss Berrington's class will be in the new room after Easter.

On Wednesday 27th year 5s will receive their first aid training. The PTA have kindly funded this and training for the year 6s will be booked for the summer term.

Thursday 28th is 'Mummy' afternoon in Reception and Friday the year 6s are off to the Galleries of Justice on the train!
