Head Teacher’s Blog 11.2.19-15.2.19 and end of half term/spring 1

Hi Everyone,

A SUPER half-term and start to 2019 everyone – WELL DONE! The children have worked hard and deserve a lovely break!

This half term we have had the Birds of Prey workshop for Class 3, dinosaur workshop for Class 1, Year 6 Crucial Crew visit, a fabulous Maths Day, the Book Bus and of course the PSA Race Night! We have also had the ‘Wear your Onesie’ day to raise money for type 1 diabetes.

A busy half term and in addition to that we have had snow and the excitement that brought!

Sincere thanks to all members of the PSA who worked so hard for the Race Night last Friday, the total raised was £876 – FANTASTIC!

In our Monday assembly this week we reflected on the Bible story of how Jesus told Simon, Andrew, James and John to put their nets out to catch more fish and they did! We talked about how Jesus needed the apostles to help him with his work and how we need to help one another to follow Jesus. To be able to do the small things well and let our lights shine!

On behalf of all the staff can I wish you all a lovely half term holiday! Enjoy it and the chance to recharge our batteries for another great half term!
