Dear Parents, Carers and Governors

Three of our Year 1 pupils, Rowan Ingram, Isabelle Carpenter and Ellie Sissons enjoyed a wonderful trip to Blenheim Palace yesterday for a special prize giving following their trip to the park last summer. They were awarded a certificate and some books for the school and enjoyed afternoon tea at the palace. Photos will appear on the website.

World Book Day and Book Week
We are celebrating World Book Day with a special themed book week in the first week after the half term holiday, 19th February. On the Thursday children are invited to dress up as their favourite character from a book and if they can bring the book in to share too that would be great. Details of other activities that week will follow.

We are looking for some volunteers who have a particular interest in supporting children in integrated activities between our two schools. The activities are generally of a practical nature. If you are keen to get involved please do contact me.

Cadbury World Trip
Children in Lower Key Stage 2 are visiting Cadbury World on Monday. Their expected time back at school is 5.00pm. If there is any variation in this we will Parent Mail you before 4.30pm. Please note the bus is leaving school at 8.15am.
