An event now becoming a regular feature on the PTA calendar is the Crazy Hair Day, see the full article and Photos HERE.
There's No Place Like Home…
Or in fact for some lucky children there was no place like the Majestic Theatre, Retford. On Saturday 9th April, 15 very excited children took to the stage as the Munchkins from the Land of Oz.
Of course, we were unable to video the performance due to copyright but do have a look HERE to read the article and see photographs and video of the children in rehearsals at the theatre.
Wizarding Wonders and Digital Ducks
This term we are able to offer two courses of Family Learning with a difference.
For families with children in KS2, activities such as potion making and spell writing provide opportunities for adults and children to enjoy time together whilst exploring the magical world of Harry Potter. This course runs on a Wednesdays from 1.15pm – 3.15pm.
For families with children in KS1 and full-time foundation we have a series of sessions based upon a children’s storybook telling the story of Digiduck and his friends. The story is written to help children understand how to be a good friend to others, using the internet and being online safely. This runs on Tuesdays from 3.30pm-5.00pm.
Both of these courses are FREE and there are still a few spaces available. Come along and enjoy these fun activities with your child. For more information please contact Mrs Vanessa Smith via the school office.
Pictured are the children who won last half term’s reading lottery. They had been doing lots of reading at home and their enthusiasm and hard work paid off! The children’s prize was a brand new book which they were able to choose themselves.
