We are sure that you will all agree that the work in the grounds is amazing. We are now at the stage when we can return to normal drop off and pick up again.

This means that the children should go straight to the playground in the morning and do not need to come in through the front door anymore. It also means that you should now enter the building through the side door using your security tag again. At the end of the day and after clubs the children will be brought into the playground and so you should wait for them there. Thank you for your support with these procedures.

Class 7 were at an Art Exhibition on Monday to see what people think about Brussels. They found the visit inspiring as you can see in the entrance hall.

On Tuesday Class 3 were very excited to be going to find out all about how lettuces are grown. They visited some greenhouses and were amazed at what they saw. You can find out more about this too if you look at their display.

You may have spotted lots of new displays around the school reflecting what the children have been learning about, if not, please take the opportunity to come in and have a look at them. They will all be completed next week.

Class 5 shared their learning with the rest of the Upper School in assembly this afternoon. They informed us how to get and then stay fit and healthy and so we’re sure that your child(ren) will only be asking for healthy snacks in the future!

We then spent some time thinking about the situation in Nepal and ways in which we could do something to help this. As always the children were very keen to do whatever they could to help and we have decided the action we would like to take. As a result we will be holding a special Cake Sale on Wednesday (13th May). This will take a different format than in the past, as we would like the children to bring in donations of Cakes to sell at break time rather than bring in a snack on that day. The Upper School children will then sell the cakes at the three break times and any remaining ones will be sold at the end of school. Please help your children to bake some cakes or cookies for them to sell. We will be supporting a school in Nepal and will give you more information about this on Monday.

The PTA have started to meet to discuss the organisation of and to plan for the Summer Fair. As always, in order to make this event a great one for everybody they will be in need of your support. Information on ways that you can help will be coming very soon.

As you already know next week is a three day week as there isn’t school on Thursday or Friday. Other dates for your diary can also be found below.
