Dear Parents/Carers,



It was due to the changeable weather this week that we decided to postpone the year three visit to the Hinckley Library which was a real shame and the children were disappointed. However, we are rescheduling this visit and will text parents and carers as soon as we have another date. The rest of the school have all been on their class visits and I accompanied 5LR on Monday. I have to say that I was very impressed by this class as they were so well-behaved and friendly towards each other. Whilst we were there, a Toddler Group were also in the library in the same area and I was proud of our children as they were able to stay focussed on Catherine’s storytelling and information about the library – there was a real racket going on behind them, but they were not fazed – well done to all!



I have been asked to remind all parents and carers that Westfield Junior School is a nut free school – this includes peanut butter kit-kats!  It is important to stick to this as children who have nut allergies can have very severe reactions even to the slightest hint of nuts.



Next Friday, 15th March, as it is Red Nose Day, we will have our traditional Talent Show in the school hall. Auditions for this extravaganza will be on Monday 11th March only. Mr Farrell and Mrs Adams will see years three and four auditions between 12:30 and 1:30 in the Studio. Mr Lambert and Mrs Greig will see year five and six for their auditions between 1pm and 2pm in the hall.

Any acts must have their own music for the auditions and must tell Mrs Cheney which music they need before Friday’s show so that we can add it to the playlist on our school device. The cost of performing is 50p per person and the cost to the audience is 20p per person. Performers need to bring their costumes (and props) into school – uniform must be worn on Friday by all pupils. As we had the Book Day dressing up last Friday, we will NOT be dressing up for Red Nose Day (Red Noses are, of course, allowed).



This assembly was very Rock n’ Roll which I love! The children (and Miss Haggie) had a blast rehearsing this and I had the pleasure of listening to brilliant music all week… another fabulous assembly - well done to all. Mrs Rowe is a real Rock n’ Roll fan in her spare time so she, also, had a great time!


Best wishes,

Margaret Greig
