Cricket Workshop gives everyone a little taste!

This week we have seen glimpses that the weather is becoming warmer and sunnier, but hopes were dashed Friday as the rain returned. Sadly, this dampened our planned Cricket workshop as it prevented the children participating with it outside. However, we were able to put a more compact session on in the school hall. The children loved taking part in this session and I was impressed by their accuracy in the bowling at the stumps, as well as their handling skills in the fielding activity.  

Our PTFA shared the winners of the Pet Photo Competition launched just before Easter and we were thrilled with the number of entries we had including a whole array of different animals. If you have not seen the collage video on our social media pages, please ensure you give it a look. There was a winner and runner-up from each school, who were given the prize of a hamper full of gifts and a printed mug with some sweets respectively. 

Keeping with the PTFA, they have been gearing up for sharing with you their plans for spending the monies raised. They are aiming, alongside the school, to have improved playground markings installed. It is evident that these spaces require a revamp. I have been busily liaising with companies to talk through designs, including the ideas from the children, and looking forward to receiving the quotes. I will make sure I am sitting down when they arrive.

It has been lovely to see the school learning about plants and growing living things recently and this culminated in children planting some strawberry plants near to our potato plants. I will soon have my lunches sorted for the coming weeks. Yum!

Next week is a Bank Holiday, so remember we are closed on Monday. Also, we have our class photos being taken on Tuesday, so I am sure the teeth will be given an extra brush and the hair will be smartly styled on that day. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
