Headteacher’s Comments

Thank you to the PTA who organised the Inflatable Day yesterday and for booking the sunshine!  Thank you to all the children and families who took part.  It was lovely to see so many families enjoying the sunshine and event.  All proceeds will be spent wisely by the PTA.


Well done to Raymond Bull (Mrs Westney/ Ms Cromwell’s Class) Archie Peck (Miss Gibbs’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.


Well done to Mrs Raddon’s class who had the best attendance last week.

First Aid Course (12 June)

A First Aid Course will run for 3 weeks starting 12 June between 10am and 12pm.  There is no cost to this course.  Please return the slip below, if you are able to attend.

Photograph Competition (14 June)

A lot of children took cameras with them to Colchester zoo, so it was decided that we would have a photographic competition.  There will be two categories, one for a picture with animals and one for pictures with people in.  If your child wants to take part, please print the picture and write their name on the back and send into school by Friday 14 June 2013.

Sports Day (24 June/ Reserve 1 July)

This is a reminder that we are planning our Sports Day for Monday 24 June starting at 9am.  Further details will be in next week’s newsletter.

WholeSchool Photograph

This year’s whole school photograph, taken at Colchester Zoo, is now on display in the main entrance.  To get a copy of the photograph, please return the slip at the bottom of the page by Friday 21 June.  Photographs cost £3.
