Plant Sale

Those of you who follow us on Twitter, check the school website or are a member of the Friends of LAMPS Facebook page, will have seen pictures of the wonderful plants that Mrs Smith has been growing ready for tomorrow’s plant sale.  The children have also been very busy planning stalls and are very excited to be involved.  Can I also take this opportunity to thank those of you who have kindly offered donations of bottles and chocolate, it is very much appreciated.



SATs tests for Year 2 and 6 have now been completed and so have optional tests for years 3, 4 and 5.  Mrs Smtih and Mrs Hoekstra have been delighted with the effort the children have put in and the excellent results achieved.  I have been very happy to see all of our pupils relaxed and at ease with the whole assessment process because for us it is business as usual and just another day at school.  The results will be reported home before the end of the summer term as they need to externally moderated and verified.



Thank you very much for the generosity shown today fundraising for Nepal.  The children have raised a superb £136.30.  It may be a small contribution in relation to the funds needed to rebuild Nepal but every penny counts.
