Dear Parents / Carers,

Mrs Thompson appreciated your messages of support last half term.  She is now recovering well following her recent operation. 

If you have any concerns or queries then we are happy to speak to you – just pop in or give us a call.

The Beast from the East:

Thank you for your support during the recent poor weather conditions caused by ‘The Beast from the East’ and storm Emma.  Once again we are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the school closure, it isn’t a decision we make lightly.  We are now hoping for a warmer spell!



Children will be able to take part in our decorated egg competition.  Please send them to school with hard-boiled eggs on Monday 26th March.  (A spare is usually a good idea too!)  In Key Stage 2, if the children want to bring in any craft resources of their own to help with their design they can. There will be two winning designs per class.  You can come into school at 9:05 on Tuesday 27th March to see your children’s EGGcellent EGGS!

Now’s the time to start designing and making a bonnet with your child for our parades on Wednesday 28th March. Our EGGSpert judging panel will choose 3 winners per class.               


We like to do some of our learning outside so we need to make sure we are warm over the winter months. Could you make sure that your child has some jogging bottoms and a fleece as part of their PE kit for outside PE.   Thank you!                                                    


Could we ask you to check all uniform, coats and PE kits are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

World Book Day:

Our celebrations were enjoyed by all and the children looked amazing in their costumes.  Look out for photos of our World Book Day celebrations on Class Dojo.

Every child has received a voucher which they can use to buy a book.

Parent’s Evening – Wednesday 7th March

If you are unable to make parent’s evening, please speak to your child’s class teacher to book another suitable time.

Reading Reward: 

Children are still working towards earning the reading reward this term by reading 5 times a week at home.  The reward will be a disco held on Friday 20th April.

Behaviour Reward: 

This term the reward for behaviour is a film.

If your child is in danger of missing the behaviour reward just before Easter, your child will have bought home a letter from Mr Barker.

Nursery Places for Next Year:

Applications for nursery places from September 2018 need to be returned to school by Friday 9th March.  If you require a place for your child and haven’t got an application form, please speak to Miss Hovington.
