Pupil Voice
Pupils were asked if they had enjoyed Book Week and what their favourite part of the week was; this is what they said….
Billy said, “I have enjoyed dressing up today; I am dressed as the boy from the ‘Dirt Bike Boy’ book.  I enjoyed making the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs’ into a comic.  It was also really fun creating captions to funny animal pictures.  I copied some of the funny animal pictures and made the teachers laugh with my drawings.”
Lia said, “I have enjoyed celebrating ‘Spelling Bee’ and learning the spellings.  I really like learning to spell new words.  I enjoyed listening to the poet.  He told us poems about Dover Castle.  I have dressed up as Wonder Woman today.”
Jessica said, “I have really enjoyed my mum coming into school this morning to read with me; my dad was at work so he couldn’t come.  I won the ‘Caption’ competition.  I really enjoyed the poet telling us poems; we made a class poem called ‘What If’.”
 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school. 
 
After school sports clubs
After school clubs will be running from Tuesday 23 April 2019.  If you would like to your child to attend, please contact the school office.  
Monday - Multi-Sports for Years 1 - 6
Tuesday - Take Action for Years 2 - 6
Wednesday -  Gymnastics for Years 2 - 6
Thursday - Football for Years 2 - 6
Friday - Street Dance for Years 2 - 6  
All sports clubs finish at 4.15pm and all children must be collected by an adult.

Late arrival at school
When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson.
Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.
School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
