Message from Mrs. Castell
Thank you so much for your support on World Book Day! It has been two years since we were able to celebrate reading in this way and it was lovely to have so many parents join us for storytime in class. If you enjoyed coming into the classrooom, can I remind you that our Reading Mondays resume on Monday 7th March, from 8.45 until 9.15.
A huge thank you to our enthusiastic WISPA team who helped organise events on World Book Day and provided prizes. The book cover competition was incredibly difficult to judge, but the winners are: Dylan in Foxes, Eden in Squirrels, Eden-Rose in Parrots, Noah in Turtles, Layla in Sharks and Alma in Dolphins. The deadline for orders from Usborne Books has been extended to next Friday 11th March, so if you have any last minute orders you can buy online here: https://bit.ly/3LXynDS. If you do wish to place an order please email it through to Kimberley at email@example.com or contact her on 07850431293.
We had our annual Healthy Schools audit this week and were highly praised for several aspects of our practice, including Forest School, our PE provision and our well-being strategies.
On Wednesday, twelve of our Year Two children attended a tag rugby tournament at Beaulieu Park School. They did brilliantly, winning 3 of their 4 games. My thanks go to Mrs Scott-Simons and Miss Wakeling for accompanying the children, we look forward to more inter-school sports events to come in the next few weeks. Another sporting success story came for Miss Wakeling, as she received news this week that she had been selected for the GB Women's Ice Hockey team competing in the World Championship tournament in Spain from 2nd April.
Please remember that emails which need to be actioned during the school day, such as pick up arrangements, must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than the class email accounts. Teachers do not monitor their emails during the day as they have the children in class.
Finally a reminder that we are welcoming parent volunteers back into school again, so if you volunteered before and wish to return, please contact the class teacher concerned to agree a time.
