Well, what a week it has been, full of learning for us all. On Monday the staff were in preparing the classrooms ready for the children starting the new year. On Tuesday the whole school staff attended training on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). It was a long day but lots of learning went on.
It was wonderful on Wednesday seeing all the children and families arriving at the school gates. There was lots of excitement as children shared their news and adventures from the summer holidays.
I have been spending time in Year 3 this week and I must say all the children have been fantastic. They have shown what fantastic, enthusiastic and creative learners they are.
The children in Years 4, 5 and 6 have also settled well and have been welcoming the Year 3 children to our school community.
I am very much looking forward to next week and seeing what exciting things are going to take place.
Wishing you all a great weekend.

There is a huge amount of competition, so we need to mobilise as much support as possible. Please ask friends and family as anyone can vote.
To vote go onto this website:
This statement from a shedder’s son sums up the work of the Shed “Before the shed, Dad was feeling isolated and low in spirits. It has given him a purpose his health has improved and his momentum for life has flourished. He now has something he can share with me and talk to me about.”
