Dear Parents / Carers
The School Improvement Adviser visited school this term and agreed with the self evaluation of the school. She was really pleased with the quality of the teaching and learning. She was also very pleased with the behaviour of the children. We continue to be a very good and improving school.
Learning this week Nursery children have been busy making chocolate nests and Easter cards. Reception children have had a visit from storyteller, Martin Maudsley. They have also been learning to say ‘hello’ in various languages. Children in year 1 have been measuring how far they can throw bean bags! Year 2 children have been performing poetry about Spring. Children in year 3 have been dividing with big numbers and have been watching year 5 children playing with the games that have they have designed. Year 4 children have been painting and drawing trees. Children in year 5 have been practising their poetry. And of course most of year 6 have been away at camp on the Isle of Wight having a great time!!

PTFA News: Thank you so much to the parents who helped with the Easter Egg Hunt yesterday and to all of you who brought your children along to take part. It was so lovely to see the playground full of parents and children dashing around, having a great time! We raised £150 to put towards school events and equipment and it didn't rain! Hooray!
Many thanks, Jo, Katy, Lisa, Hannah & Egle (PTFA Committee).
Thank you to the PTFA from us all!!
