Weekly HT Blog
Dear Parents and Carers,
Y4/5 and Ready, steady, cook ...they had a great week !! They are busy in training to become the next Junior Master Chefs !! From Hunter Chicken to carrot cake !! They have been AMAZING and I have been blown away by the dishes they have made ! Please see a small selection below.
We can`t believe there are only 2 weeks left this term!
As the beautiful weather is set to continue this week, please make sure your child comes to school suitably dressed (sun hats etc) and with sun cream applied (minimum SP50 recommended). Please don`t forget a water bottle (no juice) which can be refilled in school.
Goodbye to Mr. Andrew and Ms. Kirk
At the end of term we will be sadly saying farewell to Mr. Andrew in Y6 and Ms. Kirk in Y3/4 , who have been with us over the past year. A big thank you to these fab Newly Qualified Teachers, who have worked hard during a very different year in school due to Covid-19. We wish them both the best of luck in their futures in Education. Keep in touch!
