BOOKFEST AUTHOR VISITS

Bookfest author Petr Horacek will be visiting Class 1 on Monday 11th March.

Bookfest author Gareth P Jones will be visiting Classes 2 and 3 on Thursday 14th March.

The children have been busy reading their books and planning for this event. The children in Class 3 will be coming to school dressed up as the characters from ‘The Considine Curse’. As you may already be aware, all of the children are writing their own stories and making special story books as part of this year’s Bookfest. We will display these books before they are sent off to the competition.

RED NOSE DAY

Friday 15th March is Red Nose Day. We are asking children to come to school wearing red that day (or any other bright colour if you do not have anything red to wear) and to please bring in £1 to raise money for Comic Relief.

MOTHERS’ DAY AFTERNOON TEA

Date for your diary. On Thursday 28th March in the afternoon, we would like to invite all mothers to an afternoon tea in the school hall. The older children will be preparing food and serving refreshments.

CROSS COUNTRY SUCCESS

Well done to Edward, Macey and Abbie who took part in the Shropshire County Cross Country Championships in Shrewsbury. Congratulations to Edward who gained a superb 5th place and Macey and Abbie who did extremely well.

PARENTS’EVENING

Parents’ evening for all children, including Class 3 will be on Wednesday 3 April. In addition, Year 6 SATs information will be held on this evening. More information to follow.

COLLECTING BOTTLE TOPS

Miss Carter has asked if children can collect any bottle tops (plastic or metal) please and bring them into school for a bottle top design. Thank you to Isaac for bringing in a huge bag of bottle tops. Are there any tops left on the bottles in the Co-Op?

MESSAGE FROM THE ‘FRIENDS’

A total of £870 was raised from the Friend’s Family Ceilidh. This money will be put towards buying an electronic whiteboard for the school. The next Friend’s meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 20th at the school at 7pm. Please come along and join us as we would love to hear any new ideas for future fund-raising. Thank you

COLLECTION OF OLD STAMPS

Thank you to Macey’s family for the two large bags of used stamps to send to Hilbrae Dog Rescue Kennels. If you send stamps in to school would you please leave an edge of paper around the stamp. Thank you
