Dear All,

What a start to the half term! Such a short half term already and then everything was thrown up into the air by the weather. Anyway, hopefully we can get back to normal now.

Kestrel’s Assembly will now be on Wednesday 14th March at just after 9am please join us if you can.

Wednesday 14th March is also the rearranged reading extravaganza when you are invited to come into school from 2.30 have a look at /join in some of the reading activities the children are doing. Pick your child up as normal and then there will be a book fair in the hall and a book swop, both child and adult. We will run a reduced café (reduced because of the Easter Tea on Friday) where drinks and biscuits can be purchased. We held World Book Day on World Book Day for those children who were able to be in school but I know some children had costumes ready and were not able to come in so if your child would like to get dressed up on the 14th they are very welcome to even if they have already got dressed up last week.

Friday 16th is our annual Easter Raffle and Tea. You have all had raffle tickets to sell,if you need more there are spares in the office. Please return ticket stubs and money to the office by Wednesday 14th. On the Friday afternoon from 2pm you and the children are invited to tea where drinks and cake will be available. At this event the raffle will be pulled. The children are asked to bring in £1 for their drink and cake. There will be no toast that Friday because the PTA are very busy getting the afternoon ready.

The Y3/4 production is on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th March. If your child is in Kites or Harriers you should have had a letter about tickets. Please return this as soon as possible so we can allocate them.

That week also sees Parents evenings again you should have received a letter inviting you to book an appointment. It is very helpful if you can tick more than one time slot as it is impossible to fit 30 parents into a half hour slot!

Last week we had a fabulous assembly by Maria Snowden who teaches the flute and Anna her pupil. She has some spaces available for children who might be interested in learning the flute. A letter inviting children to express an interest should be coming home.

Wow three quarters of a page and I haven’t even shared with you the snow fun we had, the amazing archery some of our children had the opportunity to participate in, the trip to St Philip Howard, the trip to Manchester University, the trip to listen to the Halle, the delicious menus created by Kites and Harriers, the wonderful House Verse Speaking (won by Willow House), High Peak Kid’s Council and some fabulous learning I have seen around school – I blame the snow.

This Friday 9th March is Peregrine’s Assembly as ever please join us.

Osprey’s Lunch is on Thursday 15th March and Peregrine’s on Thursday 22nd.

I have been asked to let you know Inside Out Forest School is running activities over Easter; you have had a flyer about these.

I have probably forgotten something if so sorry.
