The Tempest

Following on from last week’s workshop, Year 5&6 had the opportunity to visit Forest School and watch their production of The Tempest. The children enjoyed sitting in the Deacon Theatre and especially enjoyed watching an ex-pupil performing in one of the main roles.


Year 2 Shape Work

This week Year 2 have been looking at the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes. They explored this through creating them with straws and marshmallows.


PTFA Meeting

A reminder that the next PTFA meetings will be held on:

  • One morning next week to finalise Christmas fair. To be confirmed.
  • Wednesday 15th January – 4.00pm
Energy Saving Month

From 4th November until 4th December it is energy saving month. The Eco-committee are working hard to ensure that staff and pupils know ways that they can help us to save energy such as turning off lights and taps, ensuring computer screens are put on standby and closing any doors and windows. If we are able to save energy during this month there will be a special dress up day next term!

Christmas Fair

As you know many of the stalls and the fair itself relies on the generosity of YOU the parents.
Thank you for the bottles and all donations to date – please keep them coming.
The front office has kindly agreed to accept all donations which can be placed in the boxes provided.
International Dishes and Homemade Cakes - we would be extremely grateful for any kind donations for the kitchen or for 'Mrs Claus' kitchen.
Hamper Stall – due to the generosity of each class' hamper donation the hamper stall has been very successful for many years. The class PTFA representative has probably already been in touch to start the ball rolling. Please see list below for the classes. A very big thank you in advance as the hampers really do add the WOW factor to the fair.

  • Nursery: Chocolate and sweets
  • Reception: Cuddly toys and games
  • Year 1: spa/pamper hampers – 1 for ladies and 1 for gents
  • Year 2: cookery/baking equipment
  • Year 3: Christmas food/preserves and drinks
  • Year 4: stationery and craft and books
  • Year 5: sports and afternoon tea
  • Year 6: movie night and midnight snack
Please note that there will be NO After School Club on this date to enable everyone to attend the Christmas Fair.

Prize Day Trophies

Congratulations to all the children who won their class cup at prize day. A reminder to please have your child’s name engraved and return the cup to the school office as soon as possible. These will then be displayed in our trophy cabinet outside the main office. Thank you to those who have already returned them.

Lost Property

Please make sure that your children’s belongings are clearly labelled. There are a number of items already in lost property. The Year 6 pupils will be displaying lost property for collection each Friday morning before school. Please be advised that if there is no name and it has not been claimed, uniform items will be sent to the used uniform shop and non-uniform items will be given to the local charity shop.

Class Parent

The role of class parent is to help improve communication between home and school and also to increase parent involvement. Class parents are the coordinators of support for your child’s class. They help organise support for teachers and class room activities as needed and facilitate a sense of community among the children’s families. They strengthen communication between the school and the families. Thank you to those who have already volunteered. Please see the list below.
