Dear Parents/Carers,


On Wednesday, our lovely choir sang a medley of Mary Poppins songs, firstly to years three, four and five, then in the afternoon Westfield Infant School pupils (year two) came over to our school to hear them sing and join in with ‘Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious’ (hope that’s how it is spelt!). Mrs Osborne, together with Mrs Lewis, organised this event – Mrs Osborne’s party piece is saying the song name backwards very impressive! The children from the infant school were very well behaved and, we hope, enjoyed being entertained by our children. Thank you again to Mrs Osborne and Mrs Lewis for all their hard work with the choir.


Yesterday, the PTA held a Valentine’s Disco after school for our upper school pupils (years three and four had a Christmas Disco in December). We had over 100 children at this event and I would like to thank the PTA as well as years five and six staff, plus Mr Jones our IT technician, who supported this. It was a well organised event and Mrs Elwell, as always, was the brains behind it all thank you especially to her.


This week it was the turn of Mrs Richards-Jones’ class to perform their class assembly which is all about heroes and superheroes. I had seen some of the rehearsals beforehand, but the actual assembly was brilliant! It’s hard to believe that the children performing are only eight/nine years old. I love the theme of Superheroes and I think the children (and staff!) did a wonderful job. I am lucky that I have reserved seat for all school performances - one of the perks of my job!


Today we have Coffee Stop from 2:30 onwards. Last time we did this, ALL the cakes had been sold which was fantastic! We would not be able to so this without our catering staff plus all the other staff who ensure that this happens; both behind the scenes and front of house serving teas, coffees and cakes. Great team work...

I hope you have a restful half term break and we will see your children back in school on Monday 25th February ready to work hard for the rest of the term.

Best wishes,

Margaret Greig
