Week Ending 26th February 2010

This half term is going to be very busy and exciting, as there are a number of special occasions. We are having our World Book Day on Monday 1st March, when staff and pupils will dress as characters from favourite books. Each class has voted for their favourite author: Hamsters - Nick Sharratt; Hedgehogs - Pat Hutchings; Squirrles - Janet and Allan Ahlberg; Rabbits and Badgers: Roald Dahl. Look out for photographs in the newspapers!

Whilst the photographers are in School, they are also going to capture the formal opening of "Eaton Bray Station", when Mike the Engine will be officially christened. The station clock is now ticking away on the platform, until it reaches 10am on Monday, when our children will be able to board - probably the strangest mixture of passengers ever, as they will probably range from "Cops and Robbers" to "Oompa Loompas!"

There are also visiting specialists for piano/violin/tennis/soccer and tag rugby scheduled.

During the week beginning 8th March, there will be opportunities to purchase gifts for Mother's Day / a Sharing Assembly to celebrate achievements and a Science Invention competition, with a prize for the winning entry in each class.
