Looking ahead:


Mother’s Day – normally we would have a celebration for this on the Friday before Mother’s Day but unfortunately there is a Y3 Sports Fixture and some other commitments that can’t be moved. We are therefore celebrating Mother’s Day on Friday 15th March. This will be in school (not Church) at 9.00am and all classes will be performing a piece (F1 will be in as well). Straight after the celebration there will be a refreshments served and the children will again join us in the hall (they will leave for 5 minutes whilst we set the tables). It is also Red Nose Day on that Day and the SAS will be in touch with plans for fundraising.


End of term – The Great Egg Drop: On Thursday 28th March our end of term service in Church, refreshments in school and Egg Drop outside will take place from 9.00am – everyone is welcome – come along and join us – let’s hope the weather is better this year! See the attached information.


Have a lovely weekend.
