2017/18 Newsblog Term 4 Week 2

Hello All

Just a short update this week.  Hope you all managed to enjoy the snow and not just be inconvenienced by it J It did look very beautiful, though the slush that’s left is less so.  Our Y1 and 2 children were due to be at Bristol Zoo's Polar Experience on Thursday and Friday ... would have been more polar than expected... the trip has been rearranged see dates below and email already sent to Y1 and 2 parents.  World Book Day saw many colourful, creative costumes - thank you for supporting your children, they looked great.

Snow – thank you
Thank you for all the positive feedback about the snow communications and arrangements.  Shutting early is such a difficult decision but all the families and staff arrived home safely before the major snowfall and that is the most important thing.  I'd like to say a public thank you to all the staff - the team work last week and the care and concern shown for others was exactly what our school community is all about. 

Class Photographs
Just a quick note to say class photographs will be on Monday 23rd April, the second Monday after the Easter holidays.

Thank you to Hills Group
We put a shout out for compost for our gardening club and Hills have generously donated 10 x 30L bags - brilliant, thank you.  Thank you also to Andrea and Keith (Lily's parents) who have offered to collect it from Hills' depot. 
Gardening club are still needing seed trays, miniature green houses, gardening tools, child sized and any donations of seeds or plants - please drop in to office - thank you.
