Sports Update

Well done to all the children who represented school at the FAVSP league ‘catch up’ days last week. The footballers played well as a team and Mr Khan praised their positive attitudes and dedication. The netballers also played very well. They won all of their games and are now well clear at the top of the league! Well done to everyone and to Miss Frommert and Mrs Porter!

Non-uniform Day

Thank you very much for your support with our non-uniform day on Friday. Mrs Bradberry is now making up the special hampers for the Easter bingo which is coming up on Friday 23rd March.

Beeston – Year 2

This Thursday sees Year 2 travel to Beeston for their 2-day residential. They will enjoy time at Bunbury Mill, spend time den-building in the forest, experience a camp-fire amongst a range of other activities. We hope they have a wonderful time.

London trip

The school council are going to London on Friday to visit the Houses of Parliament. We hope they enjoy their day and that they come back ready to share their experience with the rest of the children. This forms part of our work on important British values including democracy and the rule of law.
