Dear Parents/Carers,


This week it was the turn of Mrs Mayfield’s class to perform their class assembly. I was absolutely sure it would have a Science theme (Mrs Mayfield is the Science Leader in school). However, I was totally wrong – it was all about diversity in society and was really brilliant – great message to give to us all that everyone should have the same rights and freedoms.


Next week on Tuesday, the Watoto Ugandan Choir will be performing at Westfield Junior School with Year Two pupils from Westfield Infant School joining us in the audience. The choir has been touring the country and we are very much looking forward to hearing their wonderful singing. What a treat!


April Taylor, our school nurse, will be holding a drop-in session again on Friday 26th January from 8:30 -9:30. If you have anything you would like to talk to her about, then please come into school through reception. Consultations usually last 10 minutes.


On Wednesday next week after school we are having a PTA (Parent/Teacher Association) meeting in Mrs Foster’s room at 3:15. We usually finish by 4pm and you can bring your child with you. We are always looking for extra support as we like to organise fun events for families and fundraise for the school at the same time. If you have some spare time then we would love you to join us. Our next fundraising event will be the Valentine’s Disco on Thursday 8th February – years three and four from 3:30-4:0 and then years five and six from 5:00-6:30. Details will be coming your way soon.


Our first Coffee Stop of the year was today. It was fantastic to see so many families coming along to have tea/coffee and a cake (or two)! The next one will be Friday 2nd February.

Mrs Cheney will be adding her ‘Dates for the Diary’ to the website ASAP. Look out for Parents’ Evening, Family Breakfasts, Class Assemblies, Dance Performances, Exhibitions and Coffee Stops.

Best wishes,    

Margaret Greig
