Welcome back to this term and what a start it has been. Having the sun out has made such a difference to our health week as the children have been able to take part in so many of the planned outdoor activities. The year 5 and 6 visit to Hindleap Warren Outdoor Centre went really well, the children behaved well and had a great time. All in all, it has been a brilliant start to the new term. Our thanks to all the staff for making this another special week of learning
Some parents are still parking on the yellow lines or outside the gates on Briant Street and Kender Street, during drop off and collection times. Our children’s safety is paramount and incorrect parking is putting them at risk.
We ask for your cooperation with this to ensure our children are safe at all times.
Once again, we have had a really active Health Week. Across the school, the children have been taking part in activities including; cricket, circus skills, yoga and learning about healthy eating. On Monday we launched a poster competition for healthy pack lunches. Please ask your child about this and help them to create a poster. You could be helping to make the winning design.
Years 5 and 6 visited Hindleap Warren on Wednesday.
“Going on the trip was awesome. We got to do lots of things like; rock climbing, team-building and obstacle course. My favourite activity was the teambuilding because we had to work together to get across a pit of alligators (not real ones), it was fun”
“The best bit was the rock climbing, because I got to do something new and had to challenge myself to climb higher the second time” JO yr5
Year 5 will get to experience this again as part of their Year 6 residential next year, fingers crossed.

Medication in School
We are unable to give children medicines, including eye drops, if they have not been prescribed by a doctor. All medicines need to be in their original packaging and must be clearly labelled with the child’s name and dosage. Parents will be asked to complete a medicine administration form, before any medicines can be given. Thank you for your cooperation.
