It’s been another very busy week at school and with one week left of the spring term our thoughts turn to next week’s Easter celebrations. Children will be decorating eggs, making bonnets and designing posters as part of a number of activities they will all take part in but the highlight of the week will be the Easter Egg hunt which is scheduled to take place next Friday. More about this exciting event below. The children continue to be a delight and have worked incredibly hard once again this week. Our English adviser came to school on Tuesday and their overall assessment of the children’s level of progress across the school was good. Gaps continue to close and levels of attainment are beginning to show that children are on track. Please don’t forget that clock go forward this weekend on Sunday. Tickets continue to be sold for Marky Mark’s Disco on Thursday 31st March. They can be bought on the playground after school everyday right up until the day of the event.
The word of the week is – RESPAIR – fresh hope; a recovery from despair.
POEM / THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK –
THIS WEEK’S EXAMPLES OF THE CHILDREN’S WORK –
EASTER EGG HUNT FRIDAY 1st APRIL – Everyone will take part in an Easter egg hunt on the last day of term as part of our Easter celebrations. Children will forage around the grounds to look for tokens which they will exchange for an egg. Every child who takes part will receive an egg. The children are very excited about the event and we look forward to giving them their eggs.
PARENTS AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION – The next meeting of the PFA will be held on Thursday 21st April after school in the Year 2 classroom.
