Sports Days – Well done to all the children who took part in our Sports Days this week and thank you to all the staff for organising this so well. Thank you also to the parents who came along and supported them. The weather was on our side this year and the events all went off very well. Congratulations to team ‘Owls’ who won the most points.
Scooter missing – Last week a scooter went missing from the school, possibly taken home by mistake by another child. If you find you have one that does not belong to your child, please bring it into the school office and we will return it to the rightful owner.
Packed Lunches – Can we please remind you that the following should not be included in packed lunches as they cause problem for the lunchtime supervisors: Anything containing Nuts (as we have children with nut allergies) or any desserts in tubes or pouches (frubes and similar). Also can you please include a spoon in the packed lunch box if needed.
Wonderful Wildlife – We have the wonderful facility of a wildlife area within the school grounds which was established some four years ago but sadly is now in need of some TLC.
We would like to put together a working party from September onwards to clear the area and to re-establish the log piles, the pond area, clear some trees, trim the hedges etc.
And then, as an ongoing project, to help with the maintenance seasonally. Absolutely no experience necessary, a willing heart and some enthusiasm is more than enough. Oh, and if anyone has any waders, they might help too. This may involve just 3 or 4 organised sessions in the year, but even if you could help out just once, please let us know. The wildlife area is used to support many aspects of the curriculum through science / biology, English, maths and of course art and offers valuable learning opportunities for the children. Anyone who can offer support, please contact Helena.firstname.lastname@example.org or call on
