Dear Parents

The end to another busy week- this time battling the fog!

Our Football Friday initiative has been so popular that each class will have to take it in turns, beginning today with Year 3. Year 4 will be next Friday. Tom, as a qualified coach, has stated that any child taking part must have proper football/rugby boots and shin pads.  Trainers are not permitted on safety grounds.

Dance Festival:  Y1 attended the Chipping Norton Schools’ Partnership Dance Festival this week.  They read ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ and created dances as sea creatures, led by Chipping Norton School’s Sports leaders from Year 10 and Year 12. This is one of an extensive timetable of events organised through the Chipping Norton Schools’ Sports Partnership, led by Jo Phillips and funded by our sports grant.

Reminders: Bag2School collection Friday 21/3/14 by 9am (No bedding, towels or curtains please).

Science Club is now finished.

RECEPTION and KS1 will be going to Church for Collective Worship on Thursday 20 March – please make sure children have a coat and suitable walking shoes.

Year 4 Class Assembly Wednesday 19/3/14, 9.10 a.m. Parents welcome.

Year 4 Football Friday 21 March.

Please remember to return your questionnaire on being a church school.

Well Done!  This week we have said Well Done to: Imogen Hutchinson, Zoe Milne, Elliott Miskin, Rosie Mae Straw, All Year 3, Lottie Denne, Callum Tarbitt, Imogen Taylor, Harry Mix, All the Y6 children who entered the Chipping Norton Poetry Competition on WW1. There were some extraordinarily powerful and moving poems.

Mrs Belgrove’s Stars of the week:

A new initiative where I choose two children each week who I have noticed being stars.  My very first stars are Scott Finlay for working so hard and so methodically in Science and Lily Stanton for her excellent reading and participation in the Year 3 class assembly.

Attendance: Well done to Year 6 for Full Attendance 3rd-7th March 2014.

Out of School Achievements:  Well done to Amelie Tarbitt, Wade Gymnastics Blue Award

Have a lovely weekend.  I shall be packing for Sweden!

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Belgrove
