Snow Sorry

I am so sorry that we had to close for 2 days because of the snow and ice. I know it probably caused inconvenience to you so please accept my apologies. The reason for closing was due to the number of staff who were unable to travel into school. Some were completely snowed in, others couldn’t make it because of public transport cancellations.

Walk like an Egyptian

Year 4 put on a wonderful assembly this morning. They performed a sand dance helped along by clapping parents who helped out when technology let us down. The assembly was based on their Egyptian learning journey. Well done Year 4!

Stressed Down Day

We have had a lovely relaxing day in our pyjamas and slippers and in the process raised money for the Samaritans. Thank you for your donations.

Children’s Parade Meeting

The next children’s parade meeting is on Monday about 9ish. The meeting will take place in the Family Room.

PE Kits Please

All children MUST have a named PE kit for games and PE. They need their PE kits in school for the whole week. Children attending after school sports clubs must also have a PE kit. If a child does not have a PE kit during the school day they will miss PE and spend the lesson in another year group with work to complete. Children attending after school sports clubs with out a PE kit will not be able to take part in the session.

Middle Street Parking

Please avoid parking on double yellow lines when dropping off or collecting your child from school. Please do not block the entrance to the school car park as it is in use all day. Recently there have been occasions when a staff member has been very late for a meeting as the car park entrance was blocked by a parent’s car for a considerable amount of time.

for the half term break. Children return to school on Monday 23rd February.
