Weekly Bulletin - Friday 14th January
Children can correctly complete a Sudoku Puzzle for census day on 20th January to be entered into a prize draw!
It has been lovely to be able to resume face to face assemblies and singing and also to reunite Connect on one site. Thank you so much for all your vigilance which has made this possible. It has also been lovely to hear how the children have started the year; teachers tell me of the children’s resilience and determination to achieve their best. I have also seen some wonderful handwriting, including in some Year 2 diaries, where the children imagined they were Samuel Pepys and were excited to tell me that Samuel Pepys buried his wine and cheese in his garden to keep it safe.
Last term, you will have received your child’s individual photo. We have had some initial feedback that families were disappointed with some of the photos, we are therefore reviewing whether the company that we use is the right one. You have been sent a form to complete with your views.
We are excited to share the news that Ms Mahoney has had a baby girl, Mila. Both mum and baby are doing well.
Year 1 and Year 2 were very pleased to receive a visit from Perform on Tuesday. The children had a wonderful time exploring the theme of The Jungle and using drama, dance and singing to help develop their confidence, concentration and social skills. To complement the workshop, there is a free educational app for iPhones and iPads based around the theme of The Jungle. It contains fun games, creative tasks and videos of the themed songs and dances. Click here to download it free or here to find out more about the The Jungle theme.

Please find attached the lunch menu for census day on Thursday 20th January which includes a Sudoku Puzzle that children are invited to complete correctly and take to the counter at lunchtime to be entered into a draw for a prize. The number of Infant children who have a meal that day determines how much money we get for school dinners for the year.
