Dear Parents, Carers and Governors

Children in Years R to 6 have brought home a half yearly report today. This will be used as the basis for Parent/Teacher meetings next week. If you wish to discuss anything in particular please return the slip on the letter prior to your appointment.

World Book Day
World Book this year is Thursday 2nd March. Children may dress up as their favourite book character if they wish.

Athletics
Congratulations to our athletics team who came third in the partnership event this week. They represented our school with their usual good sporting nature and attitude. Well done everyone.

School Nurse Newsletter
The School Nurse Team have sent through a useful newsletter this week. There is some helpful advice and guidance about different health matters for children including how to tackle head lice.

Creative Arts Week
This will take place in the week after half term and promises to be an exciting week. We have a number of visitors coming to do workshops with the children:

• Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 will take part in a UV Puppet Theatre and African Drumming;
• Lower KS2 will also enjoy the UV Puppet Theatre and a Bollywood Dancing Group;
• Upper KS2 will also take part in the Bollywood Dance Group
In addition we have someone doing Mehndi patterns, origami, sewing, Morris dancing, belly dancing, graphic design and a cello concert. The week will end with the Wood Green Orchestra followed by a (very loud apparently!) rock band. Both the orchestra and the rock band will include ex-Madley Brook pupils.

Thank you for your donations so far towards the cost of the week. If you have not made a donation and feel you are able to contribute, it would be very much appreciated.

And Finally….
Mrs Anna Robbins will be leaving us at half term. Mrs Robbins has been a teaching assistant at the school for a number of years and has helped and supported a large number of children as well as leading the class on occasions. She will be greatly missed. We thank her for everything she has done to support the work of our school and wish her well in her new ventures.

Have a great weekend.

Yours sincerely

Katherine Spencer
