This Week’s News and Dates March 16th 2012
Whole School Information
Science Week We have had some very exciting activities this week which will culminate with our mixed year group science challenge this afternoon. The school has been buzzing with science talk – I hope your children have been telling you all about it. I’m sure the excitement of holding a python and a giant millipede was discussed around many tea tables yesterday.
Health and Safety THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
- Please do not use the gate into the car park on your route to and from school. The safe access for pedestrians is via the footpath down to the green gate. It is not safe to walk through the car park – cars may be reversing and many children are too small to be seen in the mirror.
- Car drivers, please do not turn at the bottom of the drive. It is a danger to pedestrians. Drive on and turn beyond school. There is a turning circle atSilverdale Avenue.
I nearly collided with a child on a scooter using the side gate earlier this week. We need to stop children getting into the habit of using that gate.
Flowers for the bank Dawn, our caretaker, is keen to plant flowers on the bank facing the road to commemorate the Queen’s jubilee. It will create a long lasting feature that can be enjoyed by the whole village. She would appreciate donations of snowdrops in the green, primroses, cowslips or violets. She will be starting planting on Saturday and would be glad of help if anyone is interested – just bring a trowel. Phone Dawn on 01954 210061 to check the time.
Classes 1 and 2 I have agreed to allow a research student from the university to carry out some research in school. Parents of children 6 years and under will have received a letter explaining the research and asking for permission. There is no obligation to say yes.
