Newsletter 24th March 2023
Dear Parents and Carers,
It’s crazy to think that this time next week we’re breaking up for Easter!! Where has this term gone?
Red Nose Day
Thank you to everyone that donated to Red Nose Day last week. The cake sale run by Class 4 was a great success and it meant that the total raised was really boosted. Overall we managed to raise £160. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in the quiz night. It was great to see so many people working together and having fun to raise money for the school. It was a huge success, with many people asking for a regular date for quizzes throughout the year. So many of you helped to organise or run the evening – thank you so much. With a few different pots to still be accounted for, it looks like the total raised was around a whopping £1210! It was a great evening and I for one am looking forward to the next one – hopefully we’ll be able to answer a few more questions next time!!
Last Friday we held our very first parent council meeting. We discussed the terms of reference and agreed how we would run it. Questions were asked about aspects of the school and suggestions about improvements were made. Please have a look at the minutes to see what we discussed. We will be holding another meeting after Easter – date to be decided. It will be such a useful forum to share ideas between parents and school. We have already started a new project to move lockers as a result of the meeting!
Autism Awareness Day
You may, or may not, know that Sunday 2nd April is World Autism Awareness Day. To mark the day the children are going to be learning about Autism on Friday next week. We hope all the children will gain a deeper understanding of the spectrum by doing different activities that day. Perhaps ask them what they have learnt afterwards?
Reading Information Evening
Please remember that next Wednesday (29th March) at 6pm Mrs Harman and Miss Braund will be running an information evening about reading. They will be covering the teaching of reading, expectations at different ages and you can even test your own knowledge. Please let the office know if you intend on coming.
We hope you have a nice weekend and look forward to our final week of the spring term next week.
