We are very excited about this and think parents and children will love it.

The football team had a tremendous result last night against last year’s champions when they thrashed South Wilford 1-0 ! What a tremendous achievement.

Next week….
We have pupil progress meetings for all teachers. This is the meeting where we set the targets for the class and different groups of children and make plans for ensuring children’s achievement is as good as it can be. We shall be holding our first check meeting at the beginning of November. So if teachers look stressed, you’ll know why!

On Monday we have a theatre group coming into school to perform Beauty and the Beast. They did wonder whether I’d like to play Beauty and then met me! Never mind, I know the children will love it.

Family Numeracy continues on Tuesday and the children continue to strum, bang and swim as normal. We are aiming to achieve some grade 1 guitarists.

Next week, you should receive a letter inviting you to parents evening. Please let us know which time slot suits you best and we will do what we can to accommodate you.

Finally, don’t forget school is closed on Friday 6th October for Staff training.

Have a good weekend.

Mr. C.
