NEWSLETTER MARCH 2019

Principal’s Corner
Reception and the Infants are now full for September 2019. To think, when we started in 2011 with only 5 pupils in the infants and the Council were saying you will never produce a viable school. Well Mr Baird the answer is hard work and a very good teaching team.
March has been a busy month in the classrooms the Infants have been looking at the changes in spring and are now looking into canal boats & transport a favourite Mrs Kyles topic. In PE what a jump by Sophia. And fingers crossed the eggs are due to hatch on Monday 8th April.
The Lower Juniors have been studying deserts and poetry. So watch the May Dilwynner for some excellent poems from our enthusiastic poets.
The Upper Juniors have been studying the UKs coastal environment which includes map work, the changing coastline and how we can reduce erosion. The topic has been linked to their literacy, with report writing about coastal places to visit. Year 6 are also working hard towards their SATs
Red Nose Day/World book day raised £142 which is enough to educate four African children for a year. A fun day with a Christian message. Thanks Mums & Dads for the cakes.

Sport
The Juniors are continuing swimming until the Easter break. On the 24th March we entered a team into the Herefordshire AA championships. All finished in the top half of their age group and Ruben ran exceptionally well and finished 7th. Last Wednesday it was Luctonians Tagfest. The teams played hard and one team lost 4-5 in the semi finals. Many thanks to Mark for all his hard work and his free time to coach. Congratulations to all who took part.
