Year 2 Learning in Action 

Thank you to Miss Gordon, who stepped in to deliver the Rowan Learning in Action event this week. Thanks also to those who attended; we hope you enjoyed it.

End of Term Service at St Peter's Church

We will still be going to church next Thursday for our end of term Easter Service. However, in light of the recent outbreaks of Covid-19 in Years 1 and 2 and the number of positive cases across the school, we will not be inviting parents to attend the service in person. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause; we are keen to protect our school community from the virus, especially as we all prepare for a two-week holiday. We will be live-streaming the event on Teams and will send out the link via Arbor next week.  

Ukrainian Folk Art Exhibition - Tuesday 29 March 2:30-3:00pm/Wednesday 30 March 8:30-9:00am

This week all classes have learned about Ukrainian 'Pysansky Eggs'. These are decorative eggs, using a traditional technique involving wax and paints. All the children have made their own artwork inspired by the Ukrainian folk style and we will have an exhibition of these in school on Tuesday (before pick-up) and Wednesday (after drop-off). The exhibition will be in our two corridors, which will be well-ventilated, and visitors will be asked to enter from the front entrance, following a one-way system through the school. Do come along and, if you can, please bring a donation to our chosen charity, War Child. 

Parent Governor Election
Voting for two new parent governors is open until Thursday 31 March at 3:00pm. An email inviting parents to vote online in the election was sent out on Thursday via Arbor. If you have not received an email it means that we do not have a current email address held on record for you. You can either ask for a paper copy of the covering letter and ballot paper and collect these from the school office, or provide us with an up to date email address so we can email the information to you.
New Lunch Menu
The lunch choices will be changing after Easter. You can view the new menu here; please look through it and discuss it with your child so they know what the options are. You may like to print a copy so you have the choices to hand.
