NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2019

Principal’s Corner
November is here and our thoughts turn to Remembrance. It was pleasing to see many villagers joining us at the memorial this year. The children read a WW1 poem and John Gerrish read the closing prayer. Every year we remember one of the fallen in particular and this year it was Trooper Henry Griffiths, whose great grand nephew started school in September. He, like many others on the memorial, attended our School.
It was Children in Need on the 15th November and a cake stall, poster competition, dress competition and the Betsy Blue coin challenge raised an impressive ¬£244. Playgroup also raised ¬£28 which will all go to help children who are disadvantaged or suffering hardship. A Christian message that sits well with our ‚ÄėLiving & Loving‚ÄĚ message.
In the classroom the children are working hard the Infants are looking at polar bears and penguins, while the Lower Juniors continue to be plundered by the Vikings and the Upper Juniors are studying natural disasters.

Sports News
Mike’s Sports Club continues on Mondays & Thursdays till the end of term. The Juniors will be taking part on 1st December in a Tag Fest at Worcester Rugby Club.
