Hello everyone,

Just room for me to say please read the newsletter carefully to make sure you don’t miss out on all the festivities next week.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Sue Simmons, Headteacher.

 

Tycoons

A massive well done to the Tycoons who made it onto the leader board this week in 2nd and 6th place nationally. This is a fantastic achievement.  Keep up the good work!

 

Christmas Music Concert

The Brass band, choir and recorder group would like to invite you to their Christmas Concert on Thursday 15th December. The concert will take place at 2.50pm in the Old School Hall.  We hope to see you there!

 

The Stick Man

On Tuesday 6th December, Lower Phase visited the Warwick Arts Centre for a delightful performance of the Stick Man, by Julia Donaldson, by the Scamp Theatre Company. The show was touching, funny and packed full of puppetry, live music and funky moves. We had such a fun afternoon and even got to enjoy an ice-cream before the performance.

Thank you to our parent helpers who helped support us on the day.

Maths Workshop

Thank you to Wise Owls parents for attending the Maths Workshop this week. It was a great success! We would like to share some of the fantastic responses:

“I can use things I already have at home to help my child with their timetables, e.g. paper plates and lentils.”

 

“Very well presented, clear instructions.”

 

“100% of the parents said they would rate the workshop as excellent.”
