Dear Parents/Carers,

We have had a very busy but brilliant week this week! The children have had their end of term tests in maths, GPS and reading and have had their writing assessed by their class teachers. Everyone is looking forward to their Easter break!


This week all the children who did not have a detention had a brilliant Goodies’ Treat! Upper school, Years 5 and 6 went to the Hinckley Cinema on Tuesday to see Despicable Me 3 and yesterday lower school, Year 3 and 4 saw Moana. All children had a Munchbox with a drink, popcorn and chocolate/raisins and pupils were also given a free gift from Mr David Shreeve, the cinema manager, who used to be a pupil at our school (he was actually in my class when I taught here) – it’s not what you know but WHO you know that counts!! Many children said that they had a great experience and said thank you – again, our lovely, polite pupils who we are very proud of... Next term we have M and M productions coming in as the Goodies’ Treat near the end of term.


Today the whole school made their way down to Coventry Road to celebrate Easter in church. There are so many of us, we have had to split the school into lower and upper and have two services. Thank you to St John’s for hosting this for us.


Yesterday we held an information meeting for Year 4 parents and carers. The trip is going ahead on Wednesday 18th April to Friday 20th April. All parents/carers who attended took away the paperwork we need completing. Today all year 4 children will have that paperwork sent home so don’t worry if you have already completed it and given it to us. We need to send out to all parents/carers of pupils who are going to Condover Hall so we don’t miss anyone out.


A letter will be coming home today with a permission slip for the trip to PGL next year. Although it seems expensive at £450, we are away for five days and all the excursions plus the cost of the coach and the ferry as well as the activities at PGL and all meals and facilities are included. We still feel this is a good price.

Have a Happy Easter (and lots of chocolate...) Best wishes,
Margaret Greig
