I am organising a Fairtrade cafe (A Traidcraft Bug Brew event) to be held in the school hall on 5th March to coincide with Fairtrade fortnight (23rd Feb to 8th March).
I wondered whether anyone knew anyone within the village who had any connections with traidcraft? When we did this a couple of years ago, someone also held a trade craft stall which allowed people to buy Fairtrade products which made a nice addition to the event.
Please let me know either by email or popping in to see me if you can help with this. Please also pop the date in your diary and join us for a cuppa.
We are incredibly lucky to have bought a large amount of brand new books for the reading shelves. These new books have been re labelled according to the national book banding scheme. Each teacher will work with the children after half term to allocate a suitable level of book for your child to read. This means that your child may well be taking books from a different coloured shelf.
The children may have some existing books which they are taking to read over the half term holidays. We ask that all of these books are returned to school on the first day back to allow us to complete the new shelving system. There will be a clear guide next to the shelves to explain the progression of the colours.
We hope that the new books provide as much enthusiasm for the children reading them, as the teachers had choosing them!
Many thanks for your understanding during this transitional time.
Please see your class teacher if you have any questions.
Why don’t penguins’ feet freeze? What makes us human? How does a compass work?
Join us on Monday 9th February, as we aim to answer these mind-boggling questions and many more!
From 2.30-3.15pm, there will be a variety of exciting exhibits and activities taking place in classes and in the hall. Children will also be sharing some of the wonderful work they have been doing this term. (Please see below for a full list of exhibitions.)

Dear parents and guardians,
We will not be having separate celebration assemblies until October due to the new reward system and the general hectic nature of these first few weeks. However, we do want to celebrate the wonderful reading that took place over the summer in conjunction with Roald Dahl Day on Monday.
Please can children bring into school:
- Any completed bookmarks from the school reading challenge by Friday at the latest so we can arrange certificates and complete the prize draw
- Any library challenge certificates and medals by Monday
Should children wish to share any summer achievements before October, they are more than welcome to bring them in so they can be celebrated in their classroom.
Hotshots starts tomorrow – Thursday 11th September, your child will have a letter with the details.
After school sports will start next week, letters have come home to the classes involved . Please go to the letters page if you require a copy.
Dodgeball letters are to be returned to the office as soon as possible please.
