Dear Parents

The building work is all going to plan, so far!  Next week the concrete footings will be going in by crane and the quiet room in Yellow Room will be converted into a cloakroom.

Please do not enter the school through the car park (even if the gates are open!). There are lorries as well as cars in and out of the car park; we need to ensure everyone is safe.

Activities this week: I was delighted to give the children a lovely surprise – a touring theatre company came and thoroughly entertained us with a rousing performance of ‘Dick Whittington’.

Y5 and Y6 also had a visit to Sibford School to see their performance of ‘The Wizard of Oz’, which also was excellent.

Y5 wowed us with their knowledge of space and the planets in their sharing act of worship.  We all now know how to brush our teeth in space!

Y2 Parents’ Evening: On Thursday 3rd March, Y2 parents’ evening will be 6.00pm to 7.30pm as Mrs Voce is taking the Y6 netball team to the district finals.  There will be an addition hour available on Tuesday 8th March 3.30-4.30pm.
