Week Ending 9th March 2018

Please enjoy some photos from Otter's lovely trip to Wenzel's Bakery last week.


Normal service has been resumed at EBA this week, with no snow, freezing temperatures, or other weather related disruption.  Our postponed World Book Day dress-up day went ahead on Monday, and was a wonderful celebration of books and reading, with some really amazing costumes on display. 

Children from Hamsters right through to Deer Class dressed up as a character from a book, and took part in a costume parade in the hall.  Costumes included wizards, superheroes, queens and witches, Gangsta Grannies, Mary Poppins and Paddington!  And staff dressed up too - what a fun day.



On Thursday of this week, a team of Year 5 girls took part in an after school football tournament at All Saints Academy.  They faced some tough matches in rather cold conditions, losing two  and drawing two. 

Despite not coming near the top of leaderboard, Mr Whall was extremely pleased with their performance.  This is a group of girls who haven't had much opportunity to practice together, but the team morale shown was something to be very proud of.  The girls kept one another's spirits up with cheering and good humour, and no discontent or frustration shown when things didn't go their way.  A special well done to the Year 5 girls football team!

Next week we have Science Day to look forward to on Wednesday, and a further round of the EBA Bake Off.  The children will also be having some cricket taster sessions, so we hope it will be warm and dry enough to play on the field!
