Newsletter 26th May 2016

Dear Parents,

May Day

I am greatly looking forward to a dry May Day celebration tomorrow.  The children need to arrive at school between 10.30am and 10.45am ready to walk round the village.  The dancing will begin at around 11.30am and this will be followed by lunch at around 12.30pm.  There will be stalls and refreshments during the afternoon and the children are able to leave after the drawing of the raffle at 2.30pm.

The boys should wear smart shirt and trousers (school uniform trousers are fine, no jeans), and the girls should wear pretty dresses.  They also need to bring a small posy to present to the May Queen – wild or garden flowers are fine.  Please ensure that they wear sensible shoes for dancing.

The school (including Breakfast Club) will be open for those children that need to attend, but there will be no Italian Club.

Supper Concert

There will be a supper concert on the evening of Friday 24th June in the Lin Cooper Practical Skills Building.  Tickets cost £15, to include a three course meal, music and poetry and must be pre-booked through the office due to limited numbers.  Do come to support the event – last year’s was fantastic.


I know it is difficult to get sorted every morning, but we will be having a punctuality push after the holiday.  Please do everything you can to get here ready to line up at 8.50am (9.00am for Nursery children).


We finish tomorrow for our May break and I hope you have a very enjoyable holiday.  I look forward to seeing you back on Monday 6th June.

Our Christian value for the term has been Justice. Ask your child about the experience of the Jewish people in World War Two, Buddha and the swan, the shofar in a coffee cauldron and the work of Christian Aid.
