Dear All,

Thank you to the PTA for organising another great film night, the children really enjoyed it.

Congratulations to Mrs Clayton who has had her work to help the children understand democracy recognised with a Silver Parliament Champions award. We are all very proud of her.

Our character virtue for the last two weeks has been fairness which has brought up some interesting discussions around what is fair, and is what feels fair to one person the same as what feels fair to another. We have also been considering if equal and fair are the same thing and come to the conclusion that they aren’t. The level of discussion the children have engaged in has been fantastic.  Next week we move on to the virtue of friendliness.

Tonight there is a PTA meeting 7pm at the cricket club.

Tomorrow Eagles are leading our Friday assembly do join us if you can. The following Friday 25th Jan Harriers will be leading it.

Friday 26th January is the ever popular PTA quiz tickets £3 a person. You can come in a ready-made team but don’t need a team as teams will also be assembled on the night this is a great way to get to know other parents.  If you would like a chippy supper that can also be ordered.  Tickets go on sale on Friday 19th.

We are in need of some more relief Mid-days. If one of our Mid-day supervisors is off for any reason we need somebody to cover lunchtime.  If you are available at relatively short notice between 11.45 and 1.20 and fancy working the occasional lunchtime just let the office know.

Harriers have been making good progress with their brass lessons and would love to show you how well they are doing. They are going to put on a concert for you on Monday 29th January in the morning assembly. I do hope you will be able to come.

You may remember way, way back in the autumn the choir were filmed singing on Glossop station, this has been combined with the films of other schools to produce the Derbyshire Song ‘The Best That You Can Be’ The song and video is now available to download via priced at £1.49. It is a lovely video and it is great to play spot the children we all know. I am sure a number of you will want to buy the video.
