News from the school

April 2019

This month we celebrated World Book Day at school, with a bedtime story theme. All the children (and some of the teachers!) came to school in their pyjamas, and read and listened to stories.

We had a collection for “Recycle for Michael”, which is the Salvation Army’s clothing collection scheme. We collected 53 bags in total, and the money raised will be shared between the school and the Salvation Army. It was a great way to clear out old clothes and turn them into something useful.

The school also had a visit from an athlete – Meghan Beesley – who was a member of the British team in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, doing the 400m hurdles. The children completed a fitness circuit with her, and she told them all about her experiences as an award-winning athlete.

We had a fantastic display from Kinder Falconry, who showed the children various birds of prey, and told them all about the different birds. The children we able to watch the birds, and ask lots of questions. We are really looking forward to welcoming Kinder Falconry again to our May Fair in a few weeks.

Years 5 and 6 took part in the Bikeability training offered by Leicestershire County Council. They learned lots of skills and knowledge to enable them to cycle safely on the road.

On Red Nose day the children wore red noses, told jokes, danced, and had a treasure hunt. We raised a total of £190.67!

In the week before Mothering Sunday, there was a service in the church, during which the children sang songs and read poems to celebrate having such lovely mums!
