Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 18th January 2019

18 January 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

The children in Year 6 had a fantastic trip to Nissan this week. They took part in a variety of activities and learned about a wide range of topics including engineering, robotics and manufacturing. The staff and children would like to thank the staff at Nissan for such a wonderful visit.

We saw the return of some cold and wintry weather this week. The forecast for the next few weeks suggests this cold snap is set to continue. With that in mind, please make sure school has the correct contact details for you and any other contacts, just in case we need to contact you.

Thank you to everyone who has already volunteered to take part in our upcoming Storytelling Week (see below for details). We have lots of volunteers for our younger children but not very many for years 5 and 6. If you would like to volunteer, please let Miss Heron know by the end of Monday (21st).

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Mrs A Whistler

 Headteacher
