Laurel’s Update

It has been a pleasure to welcome back the children who appear to have spent the half term break growing! A highlight of the week was the delight on our nursery children’s faces while watching a performance of ‘I want my hat back’ delivered by The Little Angel Theatre.

Please check you have read this letter about the strike day school closure next Thursday 2nd March. We have moved our World Book Day celebrations to Friday 3rd March when all children can come dressed as their favourite book character. We will start our day with a Community Breakfast in the Infant playground, followed by a PTA meeting. We will have a special assembly from Patrick Kane, author of Human 2.0 and story telling sessions in class. A £1 book voucher will be given to each child to use at any book shop.

Let us know your thoughts on the new Digital Portfolios! Links were sent to parents and carers of each class in years 1-6 before the half term break. We hope these will provide a show case of the brilliant learning that takes place through our curriculum , particularly in Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Computing, Personal Social Health Education, Religious Education and French (years 3-6).

Lastly, do get your tickets for the QUIZ – it will be a fantastic evening (March 9th, teams of 8 people)
