PTA dog show

We are really excited that the PTA are holding their first dog show on the village green tomorrow! Please see the attached flyer for more details and we would love to see as many people there as possible. On behalf of the school, we would like to offer our thanks and gratitude to all the PTA members who are giving so much of their time to put on these fun events for our school community in order to raise much needed funds to enhance our educational offer to our children. Our thanks go to Bex Vardy for co-ordinating this particular event and for everyone who has offered to help out. Your support is very much appreciated.


PE kits

As the children are spending all day in their PE kits on PE days, please be mindful that they are coming to school wearing shorts which are comfortable and not too short. The weather is set to become very warm next week so please make sure your child has their water bottle with them as well as a sunhat. We recommend that suncream is applied before school on sunny days to keep the children safe in the sunshine. 


Y5 and Y6 Mount Cook residential

Miss Davison and Mrs Dowding are looking forward to taking Y5 and Y6 to Mount Cook from Wednesday-Friday next week for their residential visit. The children will be on zip wires, driving land Karts, completing a high ropes course, navigating the climbing wall as well as participating in many other activities during their stay. The children will need to be collected at 12.45pm from Mount Cook on Friday afternoon. We hope they all have a brilliant time and can't wait to hear all about it!  


Wishing you a happy and sunny weekend,


Mrs E Bond
