Dear Parents/Carers,


We have again been lucky with the weather this week and the children have been able to spend plenty of time outside in the sunshine. 


Thank you to the PTA for purchasing and organising their new storage container in place of the old shed that was at the front of the school.  It was delivered this week, to the great excitement of the children who saw it arrive.  Space is at a premium in school and we’re grateful that the PTA came up with this practical solution (and matched it to the school colour).


Year 5 Cycling Proficiency

Next week will be busier at school as Year 5 start their Cycling Proficiency training on Monday.  Look out for a lot more bikes arriving on Monday and leaving on Thursday. 


Chinese New Year

Also next week, in celebration of Chinese New Year on 1st February, Chinese Dance workshops will take place over the course of Wednesday and Thursday.  The New Year will be the Year of the Tiger!


Covid Update / After-School Football Club

From today, crowds are allowed to return to sporting events and there are no limits on those attending outdoor events.  This means that Football club on Tuesdays can revert to being for Years 5 and 6 – this will start on Tuesday next week (25th January).  Hopefully, the indoor clubs will return to mixed year groups soon.
