Good morning all! As you know, we finish on Friday for half term and return on Monday 28th February! Clubs will start on that Monday and Thank You Assembly will be held in the School Hall again. When you collect your child at home time, wearing a mask is optional. We have a new dinner menu – this will be on our website before we come back to school – so have a look at it and discuss with your child.EXTREME READ – we thought it would be a good idea to get your child (or yourself) reading somewhere ‘extreme’ (not anywhere dangerous!!) and send in photos via Class Dojo to your child’s Class Teacher! We will be selecting winners and they will receive a prize! When we come back it is World Book Week – on Monday all children will be watching a live stream for World Book Day. On Thursday there will be a book swap and on Friday children can dress up as a favourite character and on that day work will be done around a book! On the Monday afternoon – the winning house (who have earned the most points) will have a disco!! We will announce the winning house on the Monday!! Our theme for the first week back is ‘Passion – I have a passion for learning’. Many of you might remember that before Christmas all classes in school went to St Cross Church and took part in Christmas activities. Alison Wain, the minister there was very impressed with the behaviour and attitudes of the children and also was very complimentary about our school ethos and how inclusive, welcoming and positive it is. She came into school yesterday – we will be taking part in Easter activities and competitions when we come back after half term. We will also be making contributions to the Art Exhibition (and our children will be going over to see the exhibition – done by Elderly Aid). The Art Exhibition is open to all families (there is a cafe there also) Thursday 7th April and Saturday 9th April – 1-4pm – she will be sending a poster over, which we will share with you! We are really proud with our link to St Cross Church and the children (and families) will benefit from this partnership. Have a great half term and see you all on Monday 28th (take care in the storms and stay safe).
