Reception Trip to Forest School

February 29, 2016

Last Friday, our Reception class took part in a Forest School activity afternoon at the Highfield Oval. They had a fantastic time making ‘stick men’ by peeling away the bark using special tools.

They also got to have fun in the shelters and on the rope swings and stepping stone logs. They finished the afternoon with a warming hot chocolate each! The children were really well behaved throughout the whole session and thoroughly enjoyed their trip.

Thank you to our parent helpers; Mrs Gong-Smillie, Mrs Gudmundsdottir and Ms Pointer.


Running Wesleys Cafe

February 28, 2016

As a registered charity, we have again been given the opportunity to run Wesleys Cafe in the High Street Methodist Church on Saturday 5th March. This means that we serve the teas/coffees and take home a portion of the profits for our school for doing so. As an added bonus we retain 100% of the profits from any cakes that we sell on the day. To this end we are asking parents and carers to please bake some tasty treats for us to sell…

Any donated cakes / cupcakes would be hugely appreciated. Please can these be delivered to Wesleys Cafe in the High Street Methodist Church on Bowers Parade (between WH Smiths and the Library) between 9.15am and 10am on Saturday 5th March. If possible please include a label listing the ingredients, particularly highlighting the use of nuts, eggs and milk. We will ensure any named containers are returned to you.

Please also feel free to pop in for a coffee between 10am and 12.30pm and watch our volunteer baristas in action!

Snoopy Competition

February 26, 2016

Congratulations to Jessica Timmins in Year 6 who was highly commended by the judges in a recent countrywide competition held to produce a Snoopy cartoon strip in conjunction with the recent “Peanuts Movie” release. The judges were extremely impressed with her ideas and pictures and she only just missed out on an overall third place. Well done Jessica!



School Tea Towels

February 25, 2016

We have a new school tea towel for the 2015/16 year featuring a self-portrait of every pupil. These are being sold for £4 each to raise funds for the PTA.  They are a great keepsake for the year and also make fantastic Mothers Day / Easter presents.

If you would like to buy a tea towel please put payment in a sealed envelope marked with your child’s name, class and how many tea towels you’d like.  They cost £4 each and are blue on a white background.  Please leave this envelope in the school office marked for the attention of the PTA and we’ll get the tea towels to you as soon as possible.

NOTE: Numbers are limited and orders will be fulfilled on a first come first served basis. (If there are any left we will sell them at the Easter event on Wednesday, 23rd March.)
