Thank you to the Friends, Year 6 pupils and all the parents who donated items for the Coffee Morning and especially those who helped out on the day.  Your support is very much appreciated, and I am pleased to report that £253 was raised. A superb effort from all involved.



Year 2/ Year 6 UVHS visit rearranged

The Year 2 & Year 6 visit to UVHS, which was cancelled due to the unpredictable weather, has been rearranged for next Thursday, 22nd March.  Year 2 pupils need to be transported to the High School for 8:50am where they will be met by staff and then they will return by coach at approximately 10:30am.  Year 6 pupils will be transported to UVHS by coach later in the morning and will return before lunch.  The children will not need anything for the day.



Fun With Food Club

Due to staff training at UVHS on Thursday after school, Fun with Food will take place on Wednesday evening instead of Thursday.  This will be the final session and will include all the children from both groups. 




Monday 19th March will be the last swimming session for Year 3 and Year 4.  The children will require either a pair of pyjamas (long pants & long sleeves) or a light pair of jogging pants and a long sleeved T-Shirt.



Parents’ Evening

Just a quick reminder that Year 2 and Year 6 parents should have already signed up for a Parents’ Evening appointment on Monday 26th March.  The appointment sheet for all other meetings will be available for parents from Monday next week.  These meetings will take place on Wednesday and Thursday of the first week back after Easter.



Easter Fayre

As mentioned last week, the Friends are organising an Easter Fayre for Wednesday 28th March.  To help raise donations for the fayre, we will be having a non-uniform day on Friday next week.  The children can come to school wearing anything they choose in exchange for the donation of a small item to do with their class theme.

Class 1 theme - Bottles

Class 2 theme – Chocolate

Class 3 theme – Toiletries

Class 4 theme – Food (Cake, biscuits, jars etc for hamper/tombola donations)

These are useful dates for your diary that will be added to each week.  More information about each event will be provided nearer the time.
