Cheerleading Club:  There will be a taster session for the cheerleading club on Monday 16th January for any children interested in joining - please meet in the main hall at 12:20 Monday lunchtime.  Charlotte from Dance Mania will then see how many children sign up before confirming if the club will continue.
Gardening Helpers:  We are looking for a few more parents to join our rota of gardening helpers for Monday afternoons.  If you would like to help the children with gardening we would love to hear from you.  We currently have enough helpers for children to garden every other week but it would be great if we could increase this to every week.  Gardening knowledge is not required as you will be given full instructions for the tasks each week.
Year 5 and 6 Parents:  Please take a moment to look at the Spring Term topic guide which has now been added to the class pages of the school website.  The Year 5 page is here and the Year 6 page of the school website here.
Orange Day:  On Friday 27th January the school will be supporting Muscular Dystrophy UK day.  Children may come into school wearing "something orange" for a suggested donation of £1.  More details about this charity can be found on their website -
