Blog Friday 1st February

It's February! The promised snow hasn't arrived but the cold has! we're happy to see the children coming to school well wrapped up ready for this weather. We have been making provision over lunchtime for our younger children to come out of the cold and for any older children who want to get inside also.

This week our year 1 children went on a trip to Wilsthorpe school to take part in some ball sport activities. The children walked there, took part and walked back. The teachers were so impressed how enthusiastic they were and that none of them complained about the walk. They also represented the school really well with exemplary behaviour. Well done children!

Mr Almeida's class assembly was a delight. The children showcased their learning through a range of styles including film making. Their class song 'Standing in the hall of fame' is certainly well chosen!

We are aware that the school closure day on the 2nd May for local elections is a nuisance for parents as it is for us. As a school we have voiced this but due to the footfall of such an event the council deem that the school building is the best place for it to be held.

Next week: China presentation for parents of current year 4 and 5 children at 5.00 on Wednesday.

C hinese New Year performance by year 2 children on Thursday at 

 4.30. They have been practising hard so I'm sure we're in for a treat.  

Have a happy weekend.
