Dear Parents,


The weeks are flying by and before realise it will be half term.  I have again had the pleasure of spending lots of time in classrooms this week; it is wonderful to see the children so engaged in such purposeful learning.

Chaffinch have had a wonderful week; they have produced some fantastic writing on Tuesday and then on Wednesday they had their river trip to Rushall Farm.  They were very lucky with the weather and only a few got really wet!  I was so proud to hear the feedback from staff at Rushall Farm and our parents who helped.  Well done Chaffinch and thank you to all who were involved.

'Chaffinch were inquisitive learners with wonderful behaviour and a great knowledge of rivers.' Rushall staff.

'It was a fantastic day, the children were so enthusiastic, their questions and knowledge on the subject of rivers blew me away.' A parent helper.

Sadly the Luckley football and netball tournaments were both cancelled due to the weather.  The children were disappointed but it has been great to see how keen the girls are to play netball and improve ready for when the tournaments does take place.

Next week will be very exciting with our Year 6 going to PGL, Chaffinch have a Harvest trip at Wellington College and on Thursday we will be taking some children to Warren Lodge to spend time with the residents during a special open afternoon.  On Thursday Rosefinch and Bullfinch have a family learning event; please join the staff and children to share and celebrate their learning, siblings are welcome too.

All this enrichment is wonderful for the children and brings their learning to life; it certainly makes our school and busy and exciting place to be.

I wish you a lovely weekend

Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
