Week Ending 11th July 2008

We had a fantastic Summer Fair! The weather, luckily, was on our side, and our fundraising total broke all previous records. Well done and many thanks to everyone who helped out.

We have released our colourful butterflies from Hedgehogs and Squirrels. They were reluctant to leave us and spent a long time on our fruit selection and body parts! Perhaps the attraction was the bright outfits and butterfly wings worn by many children.

On Saturday we participated in the Village Carnival. Our float was decorated in the theme of "Hansel and Gretel", and all the children in the School contributed by making cakes, chocolate chip cookies etc. Staff on board were gingerbread ladies, and the children all held "home made" lollipops - of course, being a Healthy School, we didn't even have a single nibble!!

Tuesday morning was very busy as Playgroup had an outing to visit their beautiful new Nursery where they had fun playing and eating a picnic. We also had the opportunity to welcome prospective children and their parents, who also had a guided tour of our School, organised by our very capable Year Fours.

Our last Sharing Assembly was on Tuesday, when many children shared their achievements.

Have a lovely Summer break. More news in September!
