I do hope that you had an enjoyable half term break. It has been good to see the children back this week – they have all been full of stories and tales about their experiences over the half term and it has been lovely to hear from them. I was most enthralled with the efforts with the Polish tradition to celebrate ‘All Saints’ and ‘All Souls’ Day and thought you may wish to see how loved ones are remembered…


Half term has started and I know that you are all looking forward to spending time together with your families and enjoying social activities. As our children take a break from their classrooms, we encourage you to please pause for a moment and consider how you can all stay safe and healthy together.

Please read the attached letter from the Local Authority who are expecting a further surge in COVID cases in the coming months.


We have an exciting Book Week ahead with the performance of ‘Treasure Island’ today, cake sales and then dressing up for book day. Photos will be taken and posted on Twitter – so keep an eye out!

The staff and children have all had a very busy few weeks and it is hard to believe that this is the end of only the third week back at school for most of the children. The children have all settled really well into their classrooms, are obviously delighted to be back with their friends and teachers. The children should be congratulated on their resilience and strength – we are all very proud of them.
