Dear Parents / Carers
Learning this week Nursery children have been learning to be ‘firefighters’ by using water pumps and hoses, climbing ladders (with Mrs Knights very close by) and following the journeys of fire engines. A huge well done to everyone in years 1 to 6 for taking part in our election. After we counted the results this morning the winners were Team Toucan, in second place was The Gold Team and in third place The Twelve Musketeers. Therefore, Team Toucan will be able to put their ideas into action spending £300 to improve the school. Reception held their own election to decide what they wanted to make next week. – smoothies, biscuits or flapjacks – the winner was biscuits!

Sports Day Unfortunately Year 1, 2 and 3 Sports Days had to be postponed this week due to wet weather. Safety must come first and although it was not raining, on inspection the ground was wet and slippery. We will now wait for a break in the weather to have our Sports Day and give as much notice as possible to parents and carers. Thank you for your patience.
Book Fair School Hall, Monday 18 May – Thursday 21 May 3.30pm – 4.00pm. Today your child will have taken home a leaflet which shows a small selection of the titles available at our Book Fair. Please come along to the hall and browse and buy some books. Every book you buy helps us buy new books for school. You can also click and collect at www.travellingbooks.co.uk.
Free Apple or Pear Tree As part of Bristol Green Capital 2015 your child will bring home a leaflet inviting you to grow a small fruit tree in your garden, allotment or large plot. If you are interested please complete the form on the reverse side of the leaflet and return it to the school office. If you do not have space, we will have the opportunity to plant trees in the park, so your child can still plant a tree. So do request one!
