NEWSLETTER JANUARY 2018

Principal’s Corner
Christmas was a fun time in school and the snow certainly made it a special time for the children. Carols on the Green, The Nativity and End of Term Service all enhanced the festive ambiance. Many thanks must go to the staff and also the friends who made Christmas 2017 a memorable time for all. I hope you all saw in the National Times Newspaper that our results put us fourth in Herefordshire out of approximately 90 primary schools. This and a very good OFSTED mean we expect to have 10 pupils in next years reception class. We have also had to close admissions to Years 5 & 6 except for children who have moved into the parIsh. So what does 2018 hold? In September our numbers should rise to 60. This is the highest number in the school history since the 1940s/1950s. Exciting trips are in the planning stages and the teachers are continuing to prepare stimulating learning experiences for all. This term’s topics include; Cold Places & Cas-tles in the Infants, Rainforests and the Vikings in the Lower Juniors and World War II in the Upper Juniors. In Music the Upper Juniors are continuing to make excellent progress on their flutes and we are hoping they will show off their skills at the End of Term Easter Assembly in the church. The Lower Juniors have also progressed from ukulele to tin whistle.
Finally a reminder that term finishes on Tuesday 27th March so that the floor can be replaced in the infant’s classroom.

Sport
Infant’s swimming will continue to half term and then it’s the Juniors turn. After half term on Thursdays it’s the turn of the Lower Juniors to go to the AS-PIRE Dance Studio on Thursday afternoons. Mikes Sports Club continues on Mondays after school. Congratulations also go to Maddy, Michal & Verity who have all achieved their red swimming badges.
