Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 11th January 2019

11 January 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school after what I hope was a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas break. It was lovely to see the children return to school this week with such big smiles on their faces.

There are lots of events and trips going on this term including a special Health and Wellbeing Week for all children, World Book Day at the beginning of March and National Storytelling Week at the end of this month.

This is the first time we have celebrated National Storytelling Week and, as well as inviting professional authors and storytellers to school, I would like to invite you to take part in our ‘Mystery Reader of the Day’ initiative. If you (or perhaps a grandparent or other willing family member) would like to volunteer to visit school for approximately 20 minutes at the end of the school day (w/b 28th January) to read or tell a story to your child’s class, or a different class in school, then please do respond to Miss Wilson’s invitation letter coming home today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs A Whistler

 Headteacher
