Weekly Bulletin - Friday 25th March

The Juniors enjoyed a visit from PrepareRobo, building robots from Lego and programming them to move.

This week has been another packed and exciting week! In the Juniors there were Preparerobo workshops, in which the children designed and made programmable moving vehicles. Some said that it was the best day ever! Today, the sun shone on our run for the Ukraine. The Infants ran round and round the astroturf (they reported running for between 10 and 100 laps, although I suspect that a fair bit of exaggeration was involved). The Juniors ran up and down The Cut, with coloured flags. I was so touched by the generosity of families and the community - in total we raised an amazing £895!

Well done to our Y3/4 netball team who had great fun in the sun yesterday in the netball festival at Wimbledon RFC. They took part in 4 matches and won all of them! We are also thrilled that Mr Newman will be running a netball club in the summer term and we look forward to more successes.

TOMORROW Saturday 26th March from 2-4 p.m. (last hunt entry at 3.30 p.m.) Easter Egg Trail 

Join us at the Infant site to hunt for clues around the Groves and get an egg prize. We will also have Easter crafts, nature activities, refreshments and cake available to enjoy in the sunshine.

Soft Toys

The needs of some children mean that soft toys can be helpful in school. However, they can also be a distraction to other children. Therefore, please don’t send your child in with a soft toy unless you have been asked to by Mrs Roe, our Special Educational Needs Coordinator, or your child’s teacher.  

Thank You to our Gardening Parent Volunteers

We would like to thank Sasha and our super parent helpers who came in last Sunday to tidy up and plant some new climbers, ferns and primroses in our wilderness garden and pond area.  It looks so inviting and full of the early signs of spring for us all to enjoy!  THANK YOU all.
