Dear Parents and Carers,
In a week where we have all had a bit of a shock with the change of weather, we have really enjoyed being able to run clubs before and after school. A positive step towards things opening up more.
5W have enjoyed Bikeability this week – thank you to all those parents who have taken the time to feedback their thanks and positive messages. It was lovely to get a knock on my door from Ava and Abi thanking the school for organising Bikeability and raving about how much they’d loved it! It’s your turn next week 5C…
The PTA are organising a Bubble Film Night on Tuesday 18th May. Please look out for further information.
Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend and we’ll see you on Tuesday.

Tuesday 4th May - Change to Menu
Please note that the menu on Tuesday 4th May will be Chicken Nuggets with a vegetarian option of Vegan Sausage Roll instead of the published option.
Clubs - PE Kit
We are delighted that extra curricular clubs have started up again this week. Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit if they have a sports club before or after school to avoid changing clothes in school.
Are you able to help?
We would like to buy some new equipment to support our DT curriculum which will be used to have Wacky Races! We would like to buy 15 BBC Microbit V2 Go Starter Kits. These are £16.50 each. Might you be able to contribute to buy a kit? If so please contact Mrs Poulter on firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks indeed for your consideration.
Forest School Update
Our Forest School is such an amazing resource and now the whole of KS1 and Reception Class attend each week and other year groups also enjoy time there too. However, the school does take some time to maintain it and keep it up to an excellent standard. Consequently, the pond has been rather neglected over the last couple of years, and now needs a re-vamp. One possibility is to take out the existing pond and put in a smaller more manageable pond, that would still maintain wild-life and allow pond dipping but would not require constant clearing of leaves.
This is a plea for pond advice. If there are any parents, grandparents or relatives with pond expertise who would like to help us manage this project please could they contact me. We could organise a working party to do the work, but someone with knowledge at the helm would be invaluable.

Year 4 Ravenous Readers
Here is this week's Ravenous Reader:
5C Emergency First Aid
5C have been learning the skills needed for basic emergency first aid, including how to make a 999 call and how to care for a casualty. We practised putting each other in the recovery position.
5C - DT Work
As part of our DT learning, we have tasted various supermarket soups, thinking about their taste, appearance, smell and texture. This will then help us to design and make our own vegetable soup!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, class 5W had Bikeability and got the chance to go on the road and ride their bikes. We were taught by Greg and Jenk. They taught us how to signal and look back before exiting and entering a junction. Unfortunately, one group had to ride in torrential rain but it didn’t stop them. We really enjoyed our bikeability and the best of luck to 5C next week. You’re going to love it!
Abi and William
The Ink Bin – don’t forget the Ink Bin located in the School Office. They collect and recycle all home-use ink cartridges and will give our School money back on certain HP and Canon cartridges.
