Dear Parents,


It has been a pleasure being able to chat to so many of you at our Learning Review meetings this week and I have been visited by so many children for stickers for their focused, hard work.


We enjoyed our Harvest Church Service on Tuesday and the walk back to school was lovely with the Goldfinch children taking great care of their Reception Buddies.


Thursday was such a busy day! With Prospective Parents visiting, some of Goldfinch had the opportunity to show people around our school.  The feedback was incredible and they were praised for the pride they show and the manner in which they undertook the tours.  We are very proud of them.


After school nine Chaffinch children represented the school in a Reddam Football Tournament.  They were so keen and excited! They drew one match but lost the others.  It was a pleasure to accompany them and I was delighted to be relieved of my refereeing and manager duties when Mr Baker and Mr Bell stepped up and offered their help.  We are missing Mr O'Reilly but he is hoping to be back soon.


We have finished the week celebrating our Founders Day.  We had a beautiful assembly led by Mr and Mrs Fox.  The children were all given a dafodil bulb to plant in the school grounds as a mark of thanks for our school and it's Founder Sir John Walter.


I wish you all a wonderful and relaxing weekend.  We do hope to see lots of you at our Grounds Day on Saturday (2pm-4pm).  If you are able to come please bring any tools including a step ladder if you are able to!


Many thanks
