Our ‘stars’ this week

Star-of-week

There was a Praises Assembly this morning in the Prep Department…and these children received special mention:

Georgina (Nursery), for being caring and a lovely friend, very thoughtful and polite. Georgina is starting to add, take away and spell three-letter words.

Matthias (Reception), for working hard and making amazing progress in reading, writing and maths (time). Matthias has done some excellent work in PE, too!

India (Year 1), for working very hard and being highly motivated with neat work and excellent concentration in everything she does.

Isabella (Year 2), for a very good sporting attitude during last week’s swimming gala. Isabella could not take part owing to illness but she supported her team throughout the gala.

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! The picture was taken in an earlier assembly and shows how well the children listen and like to hear about each other’s successes.

Who will it be next time?

Red noses almost sold out…

Parents, please note that we have limited supplies of the red noses left to sell tomorrow and Friday – so if your child doesn’t already have one, or wants another, please ensure they come to buy theirs promptly at break time! We’ll announce how much we have raised after Friday, which is Red Nose Day itself – remember, it is a non uniform day so please wear something red!

Sniff out your red nose…

Next Friday, 24th March, is Red Nose Day and the red noses will be on sale in school from Monday 20th at every break time for £1 donation.  There are quite a few nose characters to collect…which one will yours be? Could you even find one of the rare golden noses? There will be a variety of activities in school next Friday, from a ‘dance-off’ in the Barn for years 3-6 to a treasure hunt in the grounds for all the Prep department.   Prep parents please refer to the letter which came home late last week for more details.

The children featured in the photo below are some of our current Year 2 class getting ready for Red Nose Day when they were in Reception…how they have grown since then!

Tasty chocolate wrapper designs for Fairtrade Fortnight!

On Friday our Prep and Lower Prep pupils got together, with each older child being paired with a younger pupil, to design their own Fairtrade chocolate bar complete with sticker.

It was lovely to see the children working co-operatively together and the results were wonderfully colourful!
