Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!

The sun has got his hat on…

We hope the weather will stay summery this week, particularly for our Sports Day on Wednesday, but of course it is important that the children are well protected with sunscreen and their named sun hats. Parents –  please check that they have them for school every day so that they can all enjoy break time and sports without risk of burning. We will make sure everyone has plenty to drink!

Children and the news

We know that some children can get very worried about events they hear about in the news, and this week many have felt upset and anxious about what’s happened in Manchester.   Mr Peace led a very appropriate assembly this morning reassuring children that adults are here to listen to them if they ever have any worries about anything, not just the news. If you find your children are still anxious, there is a useful feature on the BBC newsround site. This is the link:

Watch out – there are pirates about!

A big thank you to all the  parents, grandparents and friends who came to see our Nursery pupils perform their fantastic pirate-themed assembly this morning and share some proud moments with them afterwards. The children presented some of their recent project work, including some beautiful artwork and a very catchy counting song featuring the captain of a pirate ship! They all looked amazing in their pirate outfits. There are more photos to come over the next day or so. Watch this space!
