It was lovely to see the excitement of Reception Class going on their first trip on Monday. Thank you to the many parents who joined in to make it happen, Westonbirt sounded like great fun.
We continue to celebrate lots of children showing courage in their work and out of school. I love hearing about the different foods children are using courage to try before saying “I don’t like that”, I haven’t heard too many vegetable stories yet! Let’s see if I can hear at least five vegetable stories by end of next week, a special big well done to anyone who tackles Brussel Sprouts or cabbage!!
I am looking forward to seeing and sharing with you the Big Art courage medals that each class are making with their own motto or saying. My favourite quote from the research I have done is “Courage is the little step between not knowing or doing something and knowing and doing it”. Final note on courage, well done to Millie Judson, one, for creating her own illustrated stories and two for sharing them with Keystage 1 this week – awesome!
Everywhere I look at lunchtimes and afterschool there are clubs, clubs and more clubs. Well done to all of you who have attended and thank you to all those who have put on a club – especially the children who run clubs. I had a lovely surprise recently – I dropped into Year 2 at lunchtime to be greeted by a throng of children sewing quietly and intensely, going about their own business creating and making all sorts of things – fab stuff Mrs Amos and Mrs Griffin!
Well done to the hockey team and Sarah Edwards for risking ankle and shin injuries, valiant effort by all. From what I gather from Max and Connor, we scored lots of goals but didn’t win the tournament! Good luck to the Indoor Athletics team who complete in the County finals next Wednesday – remember take courage as everyone’s personal score contributes to the whole. Even if you are coming last in your event don’t give up because you might win the extra points needed for the team to come first!
The new climbing frame is now installed and children will be allowed to use it on Monday. Parents, please ensure that children don’t use it at the start and end of day when there are lots of cars coming and going – many thanks. A massive thank you to the PTFA for their £1000 contribution.
Finally, thank you for your patience with the car park and the work on the outside eating area. The special sand for the bank has frozen and is unusable until it the weather warms up – watch this space!
Have enjoyable weekend!
