Can you believe the weather we have been having this week? I keep looking at the calendar which tells me that this is the summer term but the weather makes it feel more like autumn. Twice I have had to defrost my car this week. I am hoping for better weather - we have been promised that next week.

As usual, once we return to school, the weeks seem to fly by and this week has been no exception. As I told you in my last blog, the new foundation building was being delivered and for those of you who have noticed it you will see that they have started putting the wood panels on the outside. We are all really pleased with how it is going and we cannot wait until it is finished. I think that the foundation children will be very lucky to have such a lovely environment for their learning.

This morning the Year 1 children put on a very good assembly about superheroes. Unfortunately, due to the limited space we have at the moment, only the foundation children and Year 2 could watch it (along with the year 1 parents) but all who saw it thought it was very enjoyable to watch. I would like to thank the children for putting on such a great assembly and I would like to thank Mrs Beadle, Mrs Wells and Miss Russon for all their hard work in putting it together. I would also like to thank Miss Davies who helped to write it.

We had the author Eamonn Reilly in school and the children all really enjoyed the assembly that he took. The younger children found him particularly entertaining and he too, was very impressed with the children of Little Heath. I know that a lot of you took the opportunity to purchase some of his books and thanks to your generosity he donated a number of free books to the school so I would like to thank you all for that.

Next week is only a short one thanks to the bank holiday. I hope the weather lets us all enjoy the extended weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday morning. We have a lot of sporting events taking place so it promises to be another busy week.

I hope you all had a good Easter holiday and you have now settled back into your ‘school routine’. As usual everything has settled down very quickly here and it feels like we have been back for weeks.

 You will all have noticed that our building work is well underway. I would like to thank everyone for coping with the adjustments that we have had to make because of the building work. The children are managing well and do not seem to notice the builders at all. The new foundation building is going to be delivered over the weekend and so we will be able to see what it is going to look like from the outside by the end of the week.

It is going to be quite a busy week in school next week. All the after school clubs are starting again and letters for these have already gone out. On Monday the photographer is coming in to take the class photographs. As I mentioned in the newsletter we ask that the children wear their winter uniform for this as it does look better in the photographs.   We also have two special assemblies next week. On Tuesday we have an author called Eamonn Reilly coming in to talk to the children about writing and on Thursday a representative from the NSPCC is coming in to talk to the children about keeping themselves safe.

That is all for now. I hope you have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday morning.
