Dear Parents and Carers,

Never a dull moment! This week has been filled with energy and activity from start to finish.

On Monday we began our week with the children in Yr 1, Yr 3, Yr 4, and Yr 5 out on trips. From dinosaurs to primates, from the rainforest to the beach – everyone enjoyed applying their classroom learning to wider experiences.

Year 2 have immersed themselves in Medieval life as part of their Castles’ Day. The fun started with a Falconry display and was followed by an opportunity for the children to try out their archery skills. Thank you to PSSC for the loan of the archery equipment. As the day went on, spirits were not dampened by the weather. The class museum exhibited the range of learning that had taken place across this half-term. It was encouraging to be able to welcome so many parents, grandparents and friends into school to celebrate the children’s achievements.

Thank you to all of the parents who supported the year 2 children for their Castles’ Day and those of you who supported the school at the events we have held across the past week.

¨ The Chance to Shine (All Stars) cricket roadshow gave all of the children an opportunity to try out a variety of skills that gave them an insight into how much fun cricket is as a sport.

¨ Those of you who joined us in church had the opportunity to share in whole school worship and to meet Revd Clive. I am sure that you will agree with us that the service was enjoyable, engaging and uplifting. We have had some very positive feedback from children, parents and staff. I hope you will all join us in extending a very warm welcome to Revd Clive.

Our week has finished with year 5 having the opportunity to find out more about the importance of bees to our planet and ecosystem. Thank you to

Mr Hayden for arranging for his brother to come in to school to work with the children, he shared his experience and knowledge on bee keeping with the class. We would like to encourage the whole school to think about the needs of the environment and to join year 5 in their project. Friends Of The Earth are inviting people to join in the Great British Bee Count from 17th May – 30th June. There is also a link on the Newsround Website and the video has been shared with the children today. Please see the school website for the links. There are a number of useful resources on the Friends Of The Earth website and this is a very worthwhile project that we can all become involved with.
