The children were not in school today but the teachers were as it was an INSET Day. Unfortunately our consultant was not with us, as she had to cancel her visit due to unforeseen circumstances. However, we had a very productive day reflecting on our practice and planning for the future.

What we had planned to work on with her was following on from our last INSET Day, and it is important that we cover this before the Summer holiday. As a result there will be an additional INSET Day on Monday 20th April. This will mean that following the Easter holiday the children will not return to school until Tuesday 21st April .

Class 5 ran their Snack Shop this week and have shown their entrepreneurial skills by being able to repay the loan they were given to buy their initial stock and to donate 310€ to the Blue Turtle Centre in India. This is a fabulous result and we are sure that you would like to join with us in congratulating them on making a success of the shop and on learning so much.

Cap Science will be joining their class on Monday as they embark upon their new Unit of Work ‘Health and Fitness’. This will be an interactive workshop and will help them leap into their new learning.

On Friday the French team have organised a trip for Class 3 will to the Musical Instrument Museum. They are sure to learn lots and will hopefully have the chance to make some music too.

Please look out for your appointment times for your child(ren)’s Parent/Teacher Consultations next week. They should be in your child’s Blue Bag on Monday. If you do not receive a letter please check with your child’s class teacher.

Next Thursday (19th March) is the deadline for returning your Re-enrolment forms. Thank you to those of you that have already returned, and if you haven’t, please don’t forget to do so. Thank you.

Tuesday 24th March - Parent/Teacher Consultations.
