Dear Parents and Carers,
Well, it has certainly began to feel like Spring now, and our daffodils are blossoming in the school field. I have even spotted a few parents in flip flops, so things must be looking up. It has been such a long winter, but we thrilled to announce that we are hoping to go ahead with our Easter Bonnet Parade on the last day of term (see below). We are also hoping that we can re-introduce some traditional summer events next term and we will keep you fully informed.
We have had some more good news this week from Cllr. Richard Lewis. Drop kerbs will soon be installed from Heronsway Filling station to our primary school, including moving one crossing point near Malt Hall for reasons of safety. I am sure that all using this route will be safer and find it easier to use with prams or wheelchairs. A big thank you to Cllr. Richard Lewis as this has been fulfilled and paid for by his community budget at a cost of £13,455.00. Here are other headlines this week:
Easter Raffle April 5th - Please return your raffle tickets help to raise much needed funds for pod resources and Easter treats for the pupils. Please support us by selling as many raffle tickets as you can. We are also collecting Easter eggs, chocolates, wine, Easter toys etc to create pod hampers as prizes. As always, if you know any businesses who would be willing to donate, please ask them for us.
Easter Eggtravaganza Week - The final week of term will include arts and crafts, Easter linked literacy and numeracy, cross curricular work, and of course an "Easter Egg Hunt" and a "Traditional Easter Bonnet Parade". We hope to invite parents in to watch your child's "Pod Parade" at the end of the day on Friday 8th April. Approximate times are:-
Morning Nursery 11.15
Afternoon Nursery 2.15pm
Weather permitting this will be around the school field so we have plenty of room to socially distance. We will put a table of tea and coffee out for you to help yourself, but please bring a re-useable cup for both covid and sustainable reasons. We will not be charging, but will have a donation bucket to help raise monies for Ukraine.
Parents' Evening - We have now sent invitations for your parent meeting during the week of March 28th. (Monday to Thursday) Please help us stay safe by adhering to some covid safety precautions.
1. Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your time slot.
2. Wait outside the internal classroom door until invited in by the pod staff
3. Exit from the external classroom door
4. Respect the 10 minute time slot so that all parents can be seen and staff can spray down the table and chair between sessions.
5. Maintain social distancing at all times.
6. Wear a mask at all times.
Have a Super Weekend
