Dear Families

OUTCOME

It is our outcome for Lashings of Ginger beer next week starting at 2:15 on Thursday 17th May. In true Lashings of Ginger beer style we will be having a small picnic while your children will read you their Enid Blyton inspired stories, we will supply you all with plenty of spam sandwiches and lashings of ginger beer. We hope to see you all there.

MTP

The MTP for our next topic will be with you by the end of the week. We are looking forward to learning all about our local heathlands and becoming heathland hero’s!

HEATHLAND WALK

As you are aware, we will be walking to the Heath on Monday 14th May. I am hoping that the weather will stay dry! Please ensure your learners come to school equipped with trainers that they are able to walk for a long distance in and some trousers (tracksuit bottoms) as there may be stinging nettles on route!

VISITORS

We are very lucky this week, as our learners will be hearing from two experts! Sarah Allan from the Urban Heath Life project will be coming in to talk to us all about the wildlife on the heath. The children will be able to have hands on experience with some of the creatures that live there. We are also lucky enough to have Jon Sweet coming in to talk to us about fire safety. We may even get a visit from the fire brigade themselves!

ROYAL WEDDING

On Friday, we will be getting into our wonderful garden groups to celebrate the Royal Wedding. We will be learning all about the monarchy and will learn about the traditions and importance of Prince Harry and Megan’s big day! In the afternoon, we will be having a British picnic with jam tarts and squash! Please remember on this day children need to come to school wearing red white and blue.
