It has been a fairy tale fantastic day at Brighstone today. The Children in Bee Class were almost unrecognisable as they all arrived in their wonderful outfits. I even had to look twice as Grandma (Mrs Cousins) and little Red Riding Hood (Mrs Tate) arrived at school this morning. I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with the Reception children yesterday and they were all very excited and I know they have had a super day.
During this week I have also visited Year 2 during one of their Boomtastic writing sessions and was very impressed as they confidently spoke of where in their writing they would include alliteration, similes or onomatopoeia to name but a few! I cannot wait to read the finished pieces!
All of the staff are busy collating assessments and producing data on each of our children and reports will be coming out at the end of the first week back. We will be holding parents meetings during the following week and ask that you either pop in or contact Suzanne or Melissa from Monday 22nd to book your 10 minute appointment.
I know that Reverend Helen will have been in our thoughts and prayers of many yesterday as she was installed as the Chaplain of St Paul’s Cathedral, London. We ask God to bless her and all that she does in his name.
In the ongoing attempt to raise money for the new building, we will be a holding a competition between the classes called “Penny Wars”. Look out for more information on this after half-term.
Half Term awaits us. I hope that you all have a restful and fun filled week. We look forward to seeing you on Monday the 22nd of February.
