CHINESE DAY- FRIDAY 23rd January

 

Thankyou to everyone who supported us during our book fair week. We were so pleased to see so many children taking part in Chinese Day. They looked absolutely fantastic in their Chinese costumes and dressed as pigs to celebrate the Chinese year of the pig! We had a fancy dress parade in the morning, and the following children won a prize for being the best dressed. They received a gift voucher to spend at the book fair:

Reception- Holly Lloyd Cowley, Year 1- George Brooks, Year 2- Tom Lewis, Year 3- Georgina Griffiths, Year 3/4- Amber Hirons,  Year 4-  Ed Lloyd Jones.

We also watched a mixture of reception and year 4 children perform their Chinese dance ready for the dance festival.

 

Please look on our web site and see some of the photographs we took on the day!

BOOK FAIR WEEK AND BOOK STAMPS

A great big thankyou to all of you who came to Book fair and made it such a success. We took a massive £ 616, which meant we could have £50 worth of books for each classroom.

 

We are finding that very few children are buying book stamps at the moment., which is a shame as this is a great way to save up stamps over the weeks and then spend them at our book fairs. We wondered if this is due to parents not being able to get into school on Thursday’s after school, when Sharon Young sells them alongside the uniform. 

 

Therefore we are now going to sell them in the library EVERY MORNING at 8.40 p.m. Mrs Sarah Smith has kindly  volunteered to sell the book stamps, so please come along any day and save up your stamps. She will be in the Nursery on Tuesdays. This will start  on Monday 5th March outside Reception class.

DANCE FESTIVAL – THURSDAY 1st MARCH

 

Well done to all the children who took part in the Dance Festival at Number 8 Theatre in Pershore. It was lovely to see some of our year 4 children dancing a beautiful Chinese dance with the younger children in the reception class.

There were other schools also performing dances which was a wonderful celebration of the work teachers and children are doing in dance and the arts.

 I thank Mrs Witts who works so hard with the children to produce dance of such a high standard.

DANCE PROJECT

 

In the Autumn term, we were very lucky to have worked with a talented dance teacher – Liz Crosswell, who has been working with Miss Hutchinson’s class on a dance project. The year 2 children will also be going to No. 8 Theatre on the 27th March, to perform their dance with many other schools. This will be a fantastic opportunity for our children to perform on a stage, with lots of other children in Pershore. Parents of year 2 children will be hearing more about this nearer the time.



HOT MEALS FROM PERSHORE HIGH SCHOOL

 

Over the last two weeks children have really been enjoying the packed lunches from Pershore High School. We are now very excited about the provision of hot meals from the High School starting on Monday 5th March. There are always a few teething problem with any new system, but we hope it to run very smoothly and the envelope system to work well.

 I feel sure that the children will really enjoy the variety of healthy and tasty meals. However, if you do have any queries please call Pershore High School on 552471.


WILLOW DAY !

As part of the Friends project we are having a Willow Day on Friday 2nd March! Six children from each class will work with Mr Bob Green from Bishop’s Wood to make a squirrel sculpture on the edge of the field. We hope to take photographs of the day and put them on our web site so you will have the chance to see them! Or you can always take a stroll onto the field to see them for your selves.

 

POND  UPDATE

As you know, a group of parents and children along with Bob Green, cleared and tidied up the pond and put in a new liner last term. During this process the slabs around the pond were taken up and disturbed. Well thanks to Cathy Davis and her husband, the slabs have now been laid neatly around the pond, and the area is beginning to look really good. I wish to thank Mr and Mrs Davis who gave up their Sunday to complete this work ready for the next stage of the pond.

RED NOSE DAY – FRIDAY 16th MARCH

We would like the children to wear something RED on the above day, and some of the Friends have volunteered to paint the children’s NOSES RED during the day at school. It will cost 20p to have their noses painted bright red! I hope you will be able to support this very worthwhile charity. We should have lots of fun too!
