Maths Workshops for Parents - Wednesday 2 (EYFS) and Thursday 3 March (KS1)
We are hoping to see lots of you at our workshops next week. If you haven't already signed up to let us know you're coming, please click here and indicate which workshop you'll be attending.
VSA Mosaic Project
Sculptor Gina Martin was in school on Monday to help the children in the 'design' phase of the mosaic project. They have made an initial design as well as a paper mosaic. Their lovely ideas will be turned into a final plan and Gina will be back with us on three more Mondays in March to make the mosaic.
World Book Day - Thursday 3 March
A reminder that next Thursday is World Book Day when children are invited to wear pyjamas or onesies, with dressing gowns if the weather is cold, to school and bring their favourite bedtime story. They should wear trainers or school shoes, rather than slippers please.
We have reminded children about the Extreme Reading Challenge in assembly today. If your child hasn't already sent in a photo for this, there's still time. Click here to find out how to enter.
Parent Consultations - Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 March
This term's Parent Consultation meetings will be face to face and will take place in the week beginning 14 March. These meetings are an important part of our partnership with you; you will meet your child's teacher, hear how your child is progressing and have an opportunity to ask questions. You will also be able to look at your child's books. Appointments can be booked via ParentMail and the portal will notify you once it is open on Monday morning.
Gobstoppers Theatre/Arts Group - Free Taster Session
Our friends and neighbours Gobstoppers (Theatre/Arts Group working in Gable Hall, Prince Edward Street) are running a free taster session for children aged 3-6 on Saturday 26 February from 9:00-10:00am. For more information please click here.

We would like to expand our team of reading volunteers. If you can spare an hour (or more) a week to come into school and support children through 1:1 reading sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your availability, by Friday 4 March. Once we have a list of volunteers, we will invite you in for a short information and training session.
