Friday 7th April 2017
Thank you to everyone who has supported our Easter activities this week. Congratulations to all the children who so wonderfully decorated an egg or bonnet. We all enjoyed the egg rolling challenge and the tombola and prizes organised by Friends of School.
Our Easter and end of term celebrations continue this morning as Classes 1 and 2 enjoy a giant Easter egg hunt while Classes 3 and 4 have an Easter cricket tournament.
We look forward to seeing you at our Easter service this afternoon at 2pm.
Thank you for supporting our Easter refreshments and cake stall
Thank you to everyone who baked cakes and provided refreshments following our Easter egg rolling yesterday. Thank you also to Friends of the School who organised our Easter tombola and prizes for our competition winners.
The children received new club booking forms last week. Many children have returned their booking forms, thank you. Confirmation slips go home today and clubs start as soon as we return to school. Clubs such as cricket are oversubscribed; children who did not get a turn in the first half term will have a place in the second half term.
School Swimming after Easter reminder
All children from Y1 upwards will swim with school and qualified instructors at Catterick Swimming baths for a 10 week series of lessons starting as soon as we return after Easter on Wednesday and Thursday. A reminder to return your consent forms.

School uniform and PE kit reminders for the summer term
A reminder to name all items of clothing for the summer term. As the weather improves girls may wear blue gingham checked summer dresses and children may wear grey or black shorts.
We will aim to do our PE lessons outside so all children need a full kit; black shorts and track suit trousers (separate from those used at playtime), plain white t shirt, trainers for outside PE. The children will still need a change of indoor shoes.
