Thank you to our Friends for hosting the Movie Night last Friday. All the children had a great time and the new committee excelled themselves in organising a great event which raised £494.
We have a lot to look forward to this week. Our Books and Hearts for Ukraine Sale is being held this Friday! It is the latest event organised by the School Council following the bake sale and ‘golden silence’ and with your valued support we are hoping for another great success. From Monday, we invite the children to bring into school a maximum of five good quality books for sale on the stall. We would love to have a selection for all age ranges to choose from. The school council supported by staff will be running the stall during school time on Friday. Each class will have time to browse and choose a book(s). We will also be selling hand-knitted Ukrainian blue and yellow hearts which are sure to sell out fast! All books and hearts will be priced at either 50p, £1 or £1.50 and children can bring money into school on the day - up to a maximum of £3 per child but just 50p will buy a lovely book to come home with.
With the Jubilee celebrations upon us during the half term holidays we will be celebrating throughout school on Friday 27th may. We invite all children to come to school wearing clothes of their own choice but ideally with a red, white or blue theme. You can wear all of those colours or just one of them - please be assured that there is no need to go out to buy anything new, we just want the children to have fun celebrating. If children have PE on Friday, please be sure that their clothes are suitable for sport. During the day, children will have the opportunity to take part in some class based celebration activities. Don't forget, for all those taking part in the bake off competition, cake entries fit for the Queen need to come into school on Wednesday morning in a named container.
So, with the book stall and the jubilee celebrations, Friday looks like it’s going to be a great start to the half term holiday!
Our music for this week has a royal theme, it’s Zadok the Priest by G.F Handel which was performed at Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. We hope you enjoy watching and listening. This piece of music was composed for a coronation but it wasn’t Queen Elizabeth’s. School 360 points are available for anyone who can tell us whose cornonation it was composed for.
Well done to our stars who have impressed us this week, they are Myles Pearse, Hannah Guthrie, Charley-Mae Nesbit, Ruby Hollingworth, Libby Murdy, Danny Phelan, Alex Jepson, Lily Mallaburn, Fraser Allan, Aaron Dodd, Dylan Jackson and Lilly Ha.
School attendance is gradually creeping up and now stands at 93.3%. Well done Beech Class who were our top attenders with 99.2%.
As we head into summer and the sun becomes hotter please remember to send your child to school with a sun hat and put some sunscreen on before school.
Have a great half term holiday,
Bye for now,
Mrs S and Mrs G
