Hi there
Well only a week and a bit until I have to get ready for my return and I can’t wait to see how much the children have come on. This week therefore will be used to consolidate the learning objectives from last weeks blog and assess the children’s learning ready for my return to ensure continuity and progression in their learning for the start of the Summer term.

Please refer back to the previous blogs from this half term and the last half term to see what the children will be assessed on.

Please also visit our school website and use the foundation stage tab on the left-hand tool bar to access weblinks linked to the children’s learning.

Many thanks for your response to the Go 4 Gold scheme. The closing date has now been extended to 7th April to allow you to ask friends and grandparents if they have any 'old gold.'

The Friends have now organised the Bag 2 School scheme. You will have received a blue plastic bag on Friday, which we would like you to fill with clothing, bedding, curtains, soft toys, shoes, belts, handbags etc. Please could we ask that the bag DOES NOT contain any BRIC-A-BRAC. The bags then need to be returned to school ON WEDNESDAY 29TH APRIL. As we have no storage space for these in school, please could we ask that they are not returned before this day. Many thanks for this.

This Friday, we will be having a stripes and spots day, arranged by Mrs Walker. We are asking all the children to dress in STRIPES or SPOTS and for this, to donate £1. Mrs Walker is currently 'in training' for The Great North Run in September and she is raising money for the Arthritis Research Campaign and hopes that we can all support her in this cause. Ooh, the children might even support her running training this week in our PE lessons!

Some advance notice...

You will have received a letter a few weeks ago, informing you of our Easter celebrations. Just as a reminder –

EASTER BONNETS – the children will be having their annual Easter bonnet parade in the last week, so start getting creative now! Prizes will go the bonnets which display both creativity and evidence of the children’s own work.

EGG ROLLING – this too will take place in the last week, but please try to do this just one day in advance – 120 children – one hall – 120 hard-boiled eggs...mmm...need I say more!!

Yellow Woods AppealThe school is still collecting front covers of your old yellow pages. The closing date will be Thursday 9th April.Sainsbury's Vouchers/Tesco VouchersThe school is collecting both Sainsbury's and Tesco vouchers to try and extend it's range of resources. The collection boxes are in the Key Stage 1 area.

That's it for this week. See you all very soon
