Good afternoon,


I hope you are well.  This week has flown by and I am delighted that we can finally enjoy some sunshine today.


On Tuesday afternoon, Mr O'Reilly, Ms Bardsley and Mrs Metcalfe felt very proud of our Year 2 football and netball teams.  They were beautifully behaved and competed with confidence, commitment and fun.  They were each delighted with their medals.  Next week, Mr O'Reilly will be accompanying some of Chaffinch at football tournaments, good luck Chaffinch!  As a school, we are very proud of our commitment, level of participation in events and our success within them. 


It was wonderful to see the children dressed up for World Book Day.  The children were full of joy and fun and I have seen some of the writing produced this week and can see how inspired the children are by what they read.  It was lovely to welcome families into school to join some children in Mrs Gan's music book quiz and for reading with your children in the afternoon.


A new group started ECO club yesterday with Mrs Dodds and Sam Khan.  They had a great time in so much mud!


As I have previously mentioned, we will be having some extensive redecoration work done over the Easter holiday with thanks to Cala homes.   We do need to empty both Bullfinch and School House ahead of breaking up for the end of term.  We would welcome any help on Wednesday 27th March from 3.15pm to 4.30pm or any amount of time you can offer.  Children are welcome to stay and help but parents would remain responsible for their safety during the time.  Even if you feel you could help move furniture or resources for 10 minutes, we would be very grateful.  We are so excited to have this work done and thank you for your support.


I wanted to remind parents about uniform.  The children are being reminded in school to make sure they have the correct uniform, this includes ties, colour of socks and having no logos on tracksuit bottoms.  After Easter, we will begin sending letters home to offer support to families where the uniform is not correct.  If you have any concerns, please be in touch and we will do all we can to support.


I want to finish by wishing all the adults in our lives who are mothering towards us a wonderful weekend. Enjoy your flowers!


With kind regards
