Weekly Bulletin - Friday 11th March

Hedgehog Class enjoyed their trip to Shrek's Adventure on Wednesday.

The biggest excitement this week was the hatching of our ducklings. I am amazed that small individuals can have so much character and make so much noise. This morning, they even walked around the hall at the end of collective worship to the astonishment of the Infants. Hedgehog Class enjoyed their trip to Shrek’s Adventure on Wednesday. Fox are looking forward to their trip next week. Year 3 have been writing Kenning poems, which showed a very skilled use of words. Our Year 4 are taking on the challenge of both Wordle and Worldle and are in competition with myself as to how quickly we solve them. (Sadly, I do not have a clear lead!). Year 5 are working on their protest songs. Our Year 6 have also enjoyed themselves, recording the speed of cars, guided by the police. Today, we had a relaxing end to the week, as we dropped everything and read. Thank you so much for the birthday books that you have given to classes. I know that they have created lots of interest and there are even waiting lists as children queue to read them.

Easter Service - Musicians Invited

All parents are invited to our Easter service, which will be held at Christ Church at 9:45 a.m. on Friday 1st April.
