Dear Parents, Guardians and Carers
As February draws to a close, I am pleased to inform you of the success of our first Holiday Club at school during the holidays hosted by Atlas Camps. I heard many tales of what the children were doing and it has been agreed that the club will be available during the Easter holidays. We will be sending out booking forms nearer the time.
With the weather warning issued recently, it was with reluctance that I decided to postpone the Year 1 trip to Warwick Castle and the Year 3 trip to Bishop's Wood Centre. I made this decision to ensure that all the children were safe and also to ensure that staff not being able to come into school would not impact unduly on trips. As soon as we have arranged new dates for these trips, we will let you know.
We like to offer the children exciting experiences and I would like to thank parents for their contributions to these trips, as without this, the trips would not be able to go ahead.
We will be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 2nd March and I am sure there will be lots of interesting book characters on display!
Our library renovation is in full swing and the grand re-opening is scheduled for 4th May and we have an author visiting.
Our extra curricular activity clubs are in full swing and Year 4 are invited to try out gym club on a Monday. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
We have decided to offer children the opportunity to come into school after 15 minutes outside after lunch so that they can warm up as the weather is so cold.
Our Wrap Around Care, starting at 7.30am for breakfast club and extending after school until 6.00pm. Information is available on the website and bookings can be made directly with the school office or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With thanks for your ongoing support,

Year 2 have had a visit from the Wilson Gallery in Cheltenham. We have learnt all about the life of Edward Wilson, a local explorer who was one of the first English men to reach the South Pole in 1912!
Mathletics will be relaunched over the next few weeks and we will be exploring the new features together. It is a safe, challenging and fun way for children to continue their Mathematics learning whilst being guided and monitored by their class teacher. More information will be available soon…!
Some of the children in Key Stage 2 have been introduced to Times Tables Rockstars. This online Maths resource is an excellent way for the children to safely practise their times tables and compete against others. We are hoping to roll it out further across the school.
We would like to invite Year 4 parents to our Science Exhibition on Monday 26th March 2018 at 2.00pm. On display, will be a range of exhibits showing all the work the pupils have been doing this term.
We are pleased to invite Year 5 parents to our poetry recital on 13th March - hope to see you there!
Year 4 had a brilliant time at "We The Curious". The pupils had the opportunity to do lots of different hands-on experiments.
