Dear Parents and Guardians,


I hope you all had a good half term.  The children have come back demonstrating fantastic learning behaviours which has been great to see.  


On Wednesday the Year Ones and Twos enjoyed a music workshop from a group of American visitors.  The children really enjoyed it and I know the visitors were impressed with the behaviour and engagement of the children.  They will return for a final session next week.


This morning, we had a special assembly led by Mr Roberts, Isaac's dad.  Mr Roberts is a musician in the Irish Guards.  He shared a powerpoint presentation with the children which led to some great questions.  We then followed Mr Roberts to the Memorial Cross for a poem and The Last Post.  We will celebrate Remembrance day next week as well but having Mr Roberts with us makes it incredibly special, not just for the children but the staff as well. 


We have finished the week on a high! The boys won their football match 4-2 against Polehampton.  They played well with Noah, Evan and Elliot scoring and Evan being voted Player of the Match.  Thank you Mr O'Reilly and thank you to the parents who helped to take the goals down.


Next week is another busy week of sport with netball on Wednesday and a football match for the girls on Friday.  We will also be holding our Reception Bible Assembly on Friday at 9am.  Reception parents are welcome to join us.


We avoided the stormy weather this week and look forward to hopefully a brighter one next week.  I wish you a lovely weekend.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
