Thank you for the children’s fantastic World Book Day costumes. We have had a lot of fun sharing who we are together – so many different characters. We feel lucky that so many families here love books, buy their children books and take time to read together.
We are just finalising plans for our Sponsored Walk at the end of term on Thursday 29th March.
- Class R will walk to Hunston
- Class 1 and 2 will walk a longer way round to Hunston
- Class 3 and 4 to Hunston and along the canal
- Class 5 and 6 will walk across the fields to Sidlesham
This has become a bi-annual tradition for us and each time the children get to do a different walk in the local area. More information and sponsor forms will come home next week.
I am delighted to be able to tell you that Mrs Skelton is expecting a baby at the end of August. This will be a brother or sister for little George and we wish Mrs Skelton well as she and Mr Skelton look forward to their new arrival!
During the summer term the governors will appoint a part-time teacher to work with us while Mrs Skelton takes maternity leave.
It is always useful to us to know your views about what we are doing well and what you like about our school, and equally, ways we could do even better. To this end Ofsted have an online ‘ParentView’ facility and there is a link to this questionnaire from our school website. If you prefer, I am attaching a copy of their questions which you can complete and return to school either by email or as a paper print out.
The governors and I will consider all your views and would be very grateful if you could take the time to do this either online or on our print out. Thank you.
We are fortunate to have a small before and after school care club. Before School Care Club runs from 8.00am – 8.35am and After School Care Club from 3.20pm – 4.30pm or 5.30pm as you require. These clubs are open every single day that school is open. The atmosphere is friendly with different age groups enjoying playing together. After School Club have a snack at about 4pm included in the price.
If you are interested for either a regular booking or ad hoc as you need it – please see Mrs Cross or Miss Hearn for an information pack.
Lots of book activities planned and the Book Fair will be open on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd March.
Remember – if you want to join in with dressing up as book character, this will be on Thursday 1st March, which is ‘World Book Day’.
A sincere thank you to the PTA for funding the recent visit from Tom’s Talking Reptiles. The visit was much enjoyed and much was learned.
We used the visit to inspire our art on Painting Day – please have a look around school and see the fantastic work on display. The idea for this came from the children through the School Council – other ideas for learning days like this would be happily considered!
We are grateful to Shopwhyke Nursery who kindly donated topsoil for our new planter on the Y5 Y6 playground. A lovely surprise!
Please remember – if your child needs a GP or dentist appointment during school time, the least disruptive time is to collect them from 2pm. Thank you to families that are already doing this.
