Could I remind you all that from the start of this term (25 Feb) we are hosting a ‘Breakfast Club’ at school. This means that you can now drop your children at school at 8am from Mon – Fri for a small charge of £2.00 per child, per morning. We hope that this will be a useful service for working parents and we will provide children with a simple breakfast of toast/cereal.
Next Tuesday we will be hosting pancake races on the school playground (weather permitting) at 2.30pm. Please send your child into school with a frying pan and a pancake so that they can compete in this fun event.
This term we welcome Mrs Kim Ovens back to Class 2, after her maternity leave and we also say ‘goodbye’ to Mr Eric Keith-Smith who has been working part-time in Class 1 who will be leaving us at the end of term 4. We wish Mrs Ovens a warm welcome back to our school and we wish Mr Keith-Smith all the very best of luck in his future teaching career and offer him huge thanks for all the hard work he has undertaken at our school.
