Red Nose Day in school always brings a lot of merriment as the children just love wearing the red noses. I think they should be issued as instant mood lifters all year round although we could not have them in school as they distract the children too much. We all enjoyed dancing the ‘Macarena’ and I would like to thank all the parents who joined us. I would like to ask all of you who recorded the dancing to only use it for personal use and not to put it on any social media sites. When we have totalled all the money I will inform you of how much the school raised.
Even though next week is the last week of term we are having a very busy week in school. It starts on Monday when we have our Sharing Assembly. I love these because I like to see what the children have enjoyed doing in the classroom.
The main event of next week is the performance of ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’. The school all get to watch it on Monday and they are then performing it for parents and friends on Tuesday and Wednesday. It looks like an amazing production and all the staff and the children have worked really hard in putting this show together - I am really looking forward to seeing it.
As I mentioned in my newsletter last week we will be losing the nursery building over the Easter holidays. Work on this project commences next Thursday and I apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. After the Easter holidays you will have to enter the school in a slightly different way but this will be very apparent when you see it. By the May half term we should have a completed foundation block. This is something I have wanted for the school since I came here over eight years ago and I am very excited that it is actually going to become a reality.
This weekend is our ‘Spring Fayre’ and it is from 12 noon - 3.00pm. There are lots if great events and games organised including an Eater Egg Hunt which was very popular with the children last year. Do come along because remember the more money we raise the more your child will benefit. As you know the PTA are furnishing the new foundation block but they are also going to be financing the conversion of one of our classrooms into a technology/science room and they are paying for a new set of computers which we will get in the summer term. This means that all the existing funds we have will soon disappear.
As it is the last week of term next week there will be no extra- curricular school run clubs next week although Mr Mills has organised a couple of football matches for Monday and Wednesday. We also have the ‘Open afternoon’ on Wednesday from 3.00pm – 4.30pm so that all parents can come and see all the learning their children have completed during the last half- term.
That is all for now – I hope you are not too badly affected by the changing of the clocks (unfortunately we have to lose an hours sleep this weekend) and I look forward to seeing many of you in school next week. Remember as it is the last week of term we will finish at 2.00pm next Friday.
