World Book Day

On Friday 7 March we will be celebrating World Book Day by dressing up as a book character. You do not need to spend any money out on outfits for your children, as existing items of clothing can be adapted. Every child will receive a £1 voucher, which can be put towards a book of their choice. Please look out for these on the day.

Parents around back door

Please could parents stand away from the back door at the end of the day to give children a chance to leave the building safely and find their parents.

Cycling to School

This is a reminder that children who cycle to school must wear a cycling helmet and must dismount from their bike at the gates and walk their bikes across the school playground.  There have been a number of complaints from parents.

After School Club- 3:15- 6pm

The After School Club continues to run every night after school.  Each session costs £8 and includes a snack.  Payment will need to be made in advance.  Please ask the School Office for a registration pack.


Maths Challenge

Can you use your maths skills to solve Miss Wood’s tricky maths problem?  Have a go!

McDonalds sell chicken nuggets in packs of  6,  9  and 20.


Tricky:    How would you order 21 chicken nuggets?

Trickier:  How would you order 44 chicken nuggets?

Trickiest:  How would you order 43 chicken nuggets?

Are there other ways to make these totals?


When you have found an answer, write it down with your name and class.  Then put it in the envelope on the display board outside Mrs Sach’s room.  Answers will be announced in assembly shortly.
