Junior - Weekly email (sent on Friday 22nd March)

Dear All
We hope that the children have enjoyed designing their Big Science experiments this week. There have been a lot of interesting explorations taking place during the week with children looking at why bubbles are round; which fruit keeps us feeling full the longest; what drinks make the best cleaning products and can exercise improve your brain function?
Tuesday saw a group of Year 4 children go to Davenies for a friendly football festival. The organisers feedback was: "Many thanks for helping to make this year’s Football Festival a success. I thought the standard of play was very high, but equally impressive were the referee’s anecdotal evidence of plenty of really good sportsmanship, teamwork and encouragement between players."

Poppies - the Parish Council have kindly donated knitted poppies for the children. These poppies were knitted by volunteers to commemorate the centenary of World War One and then displayed around the village pond.

Comic Relief  - the total raised across both sites was £719.83. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this worthwhile cause.

Bottle Top Art project - over the next few weeks, as part of an exciting art project, we will be collecting plastic bottle tops.  These need to be flat lids, for example from milk, water or squash bottles (not the raised lids from sports bottles etc.) Please hand your washed bottle tops into the school office as soon as possible.  Thank you for your support.
We are also launching the 2019 Gardening Competition in school - full details are on the website here
Egg Decorating competition - we will continue to sell the polystyrene eggs for decorating from the office next week
Year 4 - children will need to come to school in PE kit for the PE Festival on Tuesday
Year 5 - Churches visit - we now have enough helpers for this trip thank you. Mr Holmes is still looking for volunteers to take groups out for the Year 5 hike day in May.
Year 5 & Year 6 - details of Bikeability training have been sent home this week - see details on the website here


Year 6 will be watching the film Wonder on Friday , if you haven't yet given consent please do so here here- to allow your child to watch the film.
