Spring 2 News Week 4 March 16th 2023

Good morning everyone,

We are open as normal today. Yesterday we enjoyed our Mother’s Day event.

Today the Eco Council will be collecting fruit waste as well as scraps from the kitchen. We will be looking around the site to check for litter and then sort any we find into different types for recycling.

Red Nose Day

Don’t forget our Mother’s Day event later on in the week and Red Nose day on Friday (donation of £1.00) School Council would also like to hold a cake sale so any donations gratefully received- thank you.

Thank you for your parent survey returns- below are the results.

Have a good day.

 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.
