Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had another productive week and things are feeling back on-track after the break and really positive.
Yesterday, we organised a series of Drumba sessions for the pupils. These were great fun and really high impact, both in terms of enjoyment and physically. The pupils changed for PE, the hall was filled with drums and they were put through their paces in a wonderful combination of moving and rhythm. It was great to see and hear their laughter. We will be sharing some photos on Facebook later, but we really enjoyed having the instructors with us for the day. Please do like and share our Facebook posts if you can, it helps them to stay active and reach more people.
A further area of the website has been updated this week. It is now possible to click the ‘High Flyers’ link on the homepage of the website to view all of the High Flyer photos from this academic year.
If your child gets certificates or awards for things that they achieve out of school (horse riding rosette, judo belt, athletics medal, swimming certificate etc) please feel free to send them in on a Thursday and we will present them in front of the school on a Friday morning. It would be great to be able to share and celebrate their successes.
No Parking on Site
As previously communicated, we have been reviewing pedestrian and car movement at the start and end of the day. To ensure the safety of children and pedestrians, there is a need to change the permissions relating to vehicles entering the school grounds. In future, only vehicles belonging to people that are officially working in school will be allowed on site. There will be new signage in the area to reflect this change.
You may have seen on Facebook that Year 4 were given the opportunity to learn some first aid this week. They took part in a workshop that we had organised to learn basic first aid principles for dealing with everyday medical issues. This was a really valuable experience and life learning with the potential to be life saving,
