News from the Head Teacher – 7/10/19

Last week, as I am sure you will all have heard, we had Paul Sturgess in school. At 7ft 7.15 in he is the tallest man in Britain and the tallest basketball player in the world. It was a super day and his main message to the children was that being different is good. He turned his difference into a positive and made his life what it is today. He talked to the children about being themselves and in life they could be whoever they want to be.

This week many of our Key Stage 2 children are going to the Cross Country event. Although the weather is due to be dry, the ground is likely to be muddy. Please could you ensure the children have some running shoes with studs ( such as football boots ) to help them slipping or falling over.

Tickets are now available for our inaugural ‘Gin Tasting Evening’.

The event will take place on Friday 8th November from 7.30pm. Tickets are £20 and it includes tasting of six different gins. Angela Metcalfe  will host the evening and Miss Moore will be making canapes. We are hoping to sell around 50 tickets. We have already had promises of approximately 20 tickets sold. We hope you will support us in this new venture and come along and enjoy the social event.

If you could let Mrs Beauchamp know how many tickets you would like to reserve it will help give us an indication of numbers. We are advertising the event in the village newsletter and hope people living in the village will also join us.

Thank you to those families who have donated to the food bank as part of our Harvest Festival. We have managed to collect 95 tins and an assortment of packets and boxes of all different kinds. Thank you to Mrs Kay who contacted Tesco asking for a donation, they have kindly donated some fresh fruit, which Mrs Kay has delivered direct to the food bank.

Attendance for last week was 100%
