Firstly, I wanted to say how well the children have returned to school after their Easter break. It has been lovely to have them back. Please don't forget that them doing so well in school sometimes means you will get the tired side of them at home! This can be completely normal whilst they get used to their daily routines. They have enjoyed our new animal topic this week so we will continue with it over the next couple of weeks.
Next week is Miss Steel's last week with us. She will be leaving us on Friday. She has been a brilliant addition to our staff team and I have no doubt she will make an excellent teacher. Thank you for all being so welcoming towards her. Im sure the children will really miss her (I know I will!).
With the warm weather lots of the children are taking their jumpers off (understandably). Can you please ensure they are all named as we are having lots left at the end of the day with no names on. Caps are great for this time of year as the children spend lots of time outside. It may be a good idea to apply sun cream in the mornings on particularly hot days. We allow sun cream in school but children must be able to apply this themselves.
Lastly, next week we wanted to take the children up to a private field up Fishpool Hill. They haven't been able to experience the trips that classes normally would have and whilst we have the weather and extra staff, we thought it would be nice for them to get out. I will be sending an email with further information so please look out for this.
As always if there are any questions please email, I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and is enjoying the sunshine!
