Message from Mrs. Castell
I can hardly believe we have come to the end of another term. It has been extremely challenging with Covid-related absence affecting staff and families and I thank you as ever for your support. Our staff have been fantastic, often at short notice switching roles and covering for each other. We have also been so fortunate to be able to have parents in the school for events after a two year break! It was lovely to see so many of you at the book-looks and parents evening meetings this week and your kind words are very much appreciated by our staff.
WISPA Easter Bonnet Competition
Thank you to WISPA for organising our wonderful Easter bonnet competition. As usual these competitions were very difficult to judge but the winners are: Hayden in Squirrels, Felix in Foxes, Hollie in Parrots, Amy in Turtles, Daria in Sharks and Alma in Dolphins.
Many thanks to the staff, led by Mrs Scott-Simons, who took some of Year 1 children to the Teddy Lympics on Wednesday. We were delighted with a first and seventh place for our teams and also to Farrah and Franklyn who achieved first place overall in their events. We are very proud!
WISPA Mini Marathon
Sponsorship forms for the WISPA Mini Marathon have been sent home today in book bags. All children will take part on Friday 6th May, when we will also have a visit from an elite athlete who will hopefully inspire us all! The aim is to complete 26 laps of the playground, equivalent to 1 mile per child and a whole 26 mile marathon for each class. We hope to encourage as many sponsors as possible from family and friends.
Forest school lessons start again in the first full week back, starting with Sharks on Tuesday and Squirrels on Wednesday. Booking details for all before and after school clubs are published on our website and have been sent out via ParentMail.
Have the most wonderful break with your families. We look forward to seeing the children return on Wednesday 20th April. Tuesday 19th is an INSET day - please do not come up to the school as all staff will be in training that day.
