Dear Parents,


I cannot believe it is already the end of September, the term is already flying by.  It has been a wonderful week seeing the children rehearsing their poems for our Poet tea.  Mrs Dodds has led the event along with our School Council and I am looking forward to seeing many of you for a cup of tea and a cake in aid of Macmillan cancer care.


On Tuesday evening Mrs Dodds led the staff in an Outdoor Learning staff meeting. The children leaving Multisports seemed impressed to see us making a fire!  As a school we are passionate about the benefits of outdoor learning; it has been great to see the enjoyment and stamina develop on the run each morning this week.


The calendar over the next few weeks is very busy with Learning Reviews next week as well as our Friday assembly; Reception parents are welcome to see their children being given their Bible.    The Learning Reviews at this stage in the year are to focus on your child's learning behaviours and how your child has settled into their new class or year group; there will be no books out and appointments will all take place in the hall.


This week at football club Mr O'Reilly has chosen the football captains; well done to Imogen for the girl's team with Meg as vice captain and Jack for the boy's team with Jude as vice captain.  


Wishing you an enjoyable weekend

Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
