Latest News and upcoming events

Welcome back to Term 4, we hope you had a lovely half term break.  We certainly were blessed with some spring weather! We might have only been back a week but we've already had a sporting event to attend.  Some of our Year 5/6 children attended a Hockey Festival at Malmesbury.  Both teams did extremely well; one finishing 2nd and the other finishing in 6th place.  Well done to all the children who took part and a big thank you to Mr Mead and Mr Slinn for accompanying them.  Our next sporting event is the Year 3/4 Football Festival on Tuesday 12th March - we wish them all good luck (and dry weather) for this.  

Last week we were lucky enough to be awarded a £200 Book Shop Spree from the Siobhan Dowd Trust.  We took 6 children to the Yellow Lighted Book Shop in Tetbury so they could choose books for our library.  The book store gave us a discount on the books, so the spree was even better than we expected.  Thank you to the book store, the children who helped picking books and to Jacqui and Kate Trubee who took the children to Tetbury.  There are a few pictures below of their outing. 

The Year 3's are back at swimming again this term.  We hope they all do well and earn lots of certificates and awards.  

Our next big event is on Thursday when we are celebrating World Book Day.  The children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite character from a book.  If they don't fancy dressing up they can bring their favourite book to school instead.  Each child will be given a book token which can be exchanged in all good book stores.  

Barn Owls are going to be holding their cake sale on Thursday 14th March and we would appreciate any donations of cake or biscuits you are able to make/buy.  All proceeds for the cake sale will go towards Barn Owls class to buy something of their choosing.  

Finally we will be participating in Comic Relief's Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March.  We are going to be selling the Red Noses from Friday 8th March in the school office at £1.25 each.  On the day we will be inviting children to come into school with crazy/wacky hair - wigs, hair dye, bunches etc.  They will still need to wear school uniform.  We are looking for a suggested donation of £1 per child which will be combined with the Red Nose money and sent off to Comic Relief.  

All our information, dates and news go out on SchoolPing so please ensure you log in each day to ensure you do not miss anything important.  If you need help with SchoolPing please pop in and see one of us in the office.  Thank you!
