I hope you have all recovered from the snow and many thanks to those of you who sent Miss Slade snow fun photos for our Twitter feed. Much fun was had; however we are all now pleased the snow has left us!
A week behind (due to the snow), we concluded Book Week on Friday with our sharing assembly where all classes read out their poems and spoke about their favourite books. Additionally, all children stopped work to read in another class. Dress Up day on Tuesday was fun as well – massive congrats to all those who turned into their favourite book character, everyone looked fantastic! There are photos on the Gallery (on our website) of this great day.
Class 4 put on their assembly demonstrating why reading is so important and I am sure that all of the parents/carers that attended were in awe of the books that the children were reading. Well done Class 4!

Teaching staff run boosters and clubs after school and office staff are working – they cannot continue to look after children until parents (etc) pick them up (sometimes not until 3:40pm). Of course, sometimes emergencies happen and this is understood, please do call the office if this is the case. The times of school closing are as above – please do be on time and many thanks to the many of you who are.
