School Menu News

In preparation for a new menu after Easter, Sharon and Sharon in the kitchen are going to try some new dishes on a Wednesday. The children will have the opportunity to tell us if they would like to see each dish on a future menu, giving them the chance to help shape their lunches. Starting after half term on Wednesday 2nd March the menu will change. The new Wednesday dishes along with allergens are attached. There are also changes to Mondays and Tuesday dishes – please see the attachments.

Road Traffic Safety Coffee Morning

Thank you to everyone who came along  to the Road Traffic Safety meeting on Friday, 11th February.  It was great to see you all and to hear your ideas and contributions. Thank you to Paul O’Dwyer who chaired the meeting and gathered the main points together to support us to move forward, reminding us that our focus is to keep our children safe on their way to and from school.

We were joined by Ash Hawkes who is our community Police officer and it was interesting to hear about the ways that other schools have worked with their communities to promote road safety. We will look forward to sharing our plans with you in the near future.

School Disco – Thursday 17th February

We cannot wait for the school disco this Thursday. Party shoes, dresses, glitter, slicked back hair and glitzy waistcoats at the ready!

The music will start at 4.15pm for our KS1 children and our Years 5 & 6 will finish the festivities at 7.45pm.

If you haven’t handed in your money and permission slip yet, please do so. It’s always so much fun!

School Choir

We are so proud to have a school choir, and they have been working with such enthusiasm this term with one of our parents, Abi Tucker. Abi and the choir joined us all in assembly this week to showcase the songs they will be singing next week at our open-air carol concert. They were fantastic! We are especially proud of Lewis who sang a solo in front of the whole school!  Mrs Jeffery and the children can be seen in the first photograph signing the words to the song ‘Colour Me In Sunshine’. The performance was wonderful.

Blue Peter Reading Judges

This week our Blue peter reading judges have been reading ‘The boy who made everyone laugh’ This was their first choice of book and they are also reading ‘Good News’ and the ‘Last Bear’. Their views so far include from Oliver: “My favourite book is ‘The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh’ because it’s quite funny and it’s about a boy who dreams to be a stand-up comedian.”

Felicity: “My favourite book is ‘The Last Bear’. It’s about a girl and her father who receive a letter to stay on an island and the girl becomes friends with the bear.”

Once we have read all the books, we are allowed to keep them which we are very excited about We are all thoroughly enjoying reading them.

Festive Date for Your Diaries

We are planning to hold our Christmas Carol Concert on Thursday 16th December. It will take place outside by torchlight after school from 4.30 to 5.00pm and all are welcome. The children who have been attending our Choir and Music Club after school are preparing some songs to entertain us and to join in with. We hope that you will come along wrapped up warm, with your torches, a little tinsel on your Christmas hats and ready to sing!
