Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a very enjoyable and restful Half Term.  The children have been pleased to be back and have especially enjoyed seeing Bingo and Nibbles again.  Thank you to the Allcock family for looking after them so attentively over the holiday.  

During Half Term St James' Church led a Lantern Parade.  It was a lovely walk and the whole event was incredibly well attended.  Thank you for those of you who were able to join in.


Before Half Term the Year Five children worked with me on an IKEA Bedroom Design Project.  The winning group would receive prize money to spend at IKEA, for school items.  Meg and Safiya were the winning pair and they enjoyed a trip to IKEA during the holiday.  At the end of our Monday assembly the children were delighted to see the wonderful things they had bought; the Infant Circus tent was a big hit! Thank you Meg and Safiya.


Thank you for ensuring that your child has come back to school in their winter uniform.  Please can I remind you that we need all uniform, coats and shoes to be labelled.  We are continuing our daily run and need the children to come into school in school shoes and have trainers to change into.  If possible we would like your child have a spare pair of socks in case it is a wet morning.


I had the pleasure this week of carrying out a Learning Walk with our School Improvement Partner and Mrs Runciman.  It was wonderful to see the children so engaged and focused on their learning.  


Today we have our first football match for the girls and we wish them luck. They will be wearing our new Premier Stars Kit which the boys are very jealous about!

Next week is another week full of enrichment with Chaffinch going to Rushall Farm and Goldfinch to Wellington College.


I would like to wish you a wonderful and safe weekend and Bonfire night.
