A very big well done to all the children who brought their Easter paste eggs into school. All the egg designs were fantastic! Thank you also to parents who spent time to help and support their children in creating their egg entries and for those parents who entered their own egg designs too! Our school council had the difficult job of judging the overall winning entries from each class – well done to all the winners. Every entry received a chocolate egg for their efforts and the winners were awarded a special prize of a larger chocolate Easter egg. If you didn’t manage to drop into school to see all the egg entries then please take some time to look through the gallery below.
Thank you to our Reception parents for joining us today to carry out craft work with the children. Everybody appeared to be having fun creating some excellent works of art!
Today, our Reception children enjoyed an end of topic ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’. Our English lessons have been spent writing party invitations to our favourite soft toy or teddy. We designed our own place mats, decorating them with all of our favourite Julia Donaldson characters. We all enjoyed yummy party food and our teddies loved our party games. (Early Years Team)
Well done to all of our children and staff who dressed up for World Book Day on Friday. We certainly had a fabulous day filled with reading, sharing stories and celebrating everything that there is about reading books!. Thank you to our School Council who judged the best dressed character from each class – you did a great job, especially when everyone could have been judged a winner! Thank you also to Mrs Robson for organising such a fun day – who would have thought reading books was so much fun! Let’s hope next year will be just as good.

Thank you to all parents who attended our Mother’s Day lunch. It was lovely to see you and your children enjoying such a lovely occasion. Thank you also for all the lovely comments passed onto school – they really are very much appreciated.
Mr L Duncan
Due to last week’s adverse weather conditions and subsequent closure of school our World Book Day did not take place as planned.
We have rescheduled ‘World Book Day’ for Friday 9th March.
The children are asked to come to school dressed as their favourite book character or author (£1 donation per family please). The children are welcome to bring in their favourite book as they will have an opportunity to read it and share what they like about it with others in their class.
Our school council will judge the best dressed book character from each class and all the children will be celebrated for their effort during a whole school assembly.
I’m sure the children will have a fabulous day enjoying everything that is great about reading books!
School will be open as usual tomorrow (Monday 5th March). Breakfast club will be on as normal from 8.00am. School events, disrupted by the adverse weather last week, will be rearranged for later in the term. I look forward to seeing all the children back at school tomorrow.

Due to the continuing adverse weather conditions and further weather warnings for snow showers, icy conditions and high winds the school will be closed tomorrow (Friday 2nd March 2018). The safety of pupils, parents and staff is paramount, especially when considering the travelling to and from school and the accessibility around the school site. The school will re-open on Monday 5th March.
