Spring 2 News Week 3 March 8th 2023

Good morning everyone,

Yesterday the Eco Council visited Year 1 to talk to them about ways to protect our planet. Year 1 asked lots of great questions.

We have been researching where to place a water butt.

Year 1 have a non-uniform day for 100% attendance next Friday 10th March.

Final call– Parent Questionnaire- I have 13 returned so far.

Please help by returning your parent questionnaire- thank you. This will help me to plan for future developments.

Have a good day

Mrs Mason

 Remember if children read at least 3 times in the week (proposed 3 x to encourage more children )and have their reading diary signed they can earn stickers on their chart. These stickers earn the children a prize for each milestone they hit. We will also feature their photo in the school hall and in this news post. So please support your child to read as much as possible. Thank you.
