It has been another very busy half term with so much going on in school.  KS2 children returned from the residential tired but full of enthusiasm for the action packed three days they had.  Mrs Smith and Mrs Hoekstra reported that their behaviour was outstanding and they were very proud of how well they conducted themselves and also how they approached any challenges.


Parent Council

I would like to set up a group of parents who would be interested in meeting once each term to discuss school development.  Ideally this would run similar to the school council where members would share their perspectives on specific aspects of school life and also be instrumental in gaining the views of the wider parent community, which could then be communicated back.  Topics could include school dinners, uniform and school trips etc.  If you are interested in being part of such a group then please drop in and see me or send an email.


Plants Sale

As you may have seen from the Friends of LAMPS facebook page, the Plant Sale raised a staggering £652.68 for the school which is a tremendous effort.  I would just like to say a huge thank you to all that were involved but especially to Mrs Smith who has put her beautiful greenhouse to very good use and worked very hard to produce such quality plants to sell. 


Next term

We have so much planned for the final half term.  I have listed all the events in the dates section to give you as much notice as possible if you need to book time off work to attend any.  More details will be available for each nearer the time.  Mrs Smith is busy planning the Summer Sports Fun Day but I can already tell you that one of the activities will be archery which we are all very excited about.


Extra-curricular Clubs

Please look at the timetable for information about the clubs and take note of who they are provided for and the start and finish times as they do differ.  Individual club letters and permission slips will be sent out as soon as we return after the break.  The club timetable will also be available on the school website; a more readable version!
