Week Commencing 25th March 2019

This week sees Prep 3 and Prep 4 undertaking an Educational Visit to West Midlands Safari Park and the EYFS and Pre-Prep leading our Mother’s Day celebrations.

It is lovely to be able to celebrate the role of Mothers and those who care for us at this time of year. It is good to reflect on how hard our mothers work, especially if we are fortunate enough to have self-sacrificing mothers. The job of a mother is not an easy one and as we reflect it is worth taking note of the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she cared for the Son of God.

I hope that all Mother’s and carers feel special and are spoilt as we celebrate Mother’s Day on 31st March.

On Monday Prep 3 and Prep 4 are going to West Midlands Safari Park.

On Tuesday Miss Biggs will be out undertaking Science training, Mrs Hutchinson will be covering her classes.
We will be sending out the words to be learnt for out Sponsored Spell.

Thursday is swimming as usual for Prep 5

We have Movie night on Thursday - children are welcome to bring ‘Home clothes’ to change into after school.

On Friday we will be marking ‘Earth Hour’ between 1-2pm. Earth Hour takes place on Saturday 30th March and is a world-wide challenge to switch off all appliances which use energy in an effort to show how we can ‘Save Our Planet’.
Friday also see the EYFS and Pre-Prep Mother’s Day assembly commencing at 2-30pm. This the EYFS and Pre-Prep only leading this special assembly. Mum’s, grandma’s and carers are most welcome to attend.

We look forward to welcoming you into school for this occasion.

May I remind you that every day is an Open Day and I am available to show visitors around our school.

Do not forget that the Clocks go forward one hour at 1am on Sunday 31st March!
