This week in school, we talked about Martin Luther King. There is a national holiday in America each year to celebrate his life, which was on Monday. The date was chosen as it is the closest Monday to his actual Birthdate which is the 15th January.
When Reverend Childs was in school on Wednesday, he talked about Epiphany during the assembly. Our Reception children have recently celebrated this in class, making their own King crowns & having King cake.
This week has been a little hectic, from an email point of view. We may have sent a few too many emails to you, for this we do apologise. We do however, feel you need to have all the facts and details in a timely and concise way. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Blue Skies & Chilly mornings
The days have certainly turned a lot cooler, the ground is lovely and frosty each morning and the resident Robin has been singing his heart out!
Please do remember your child needs a coat in school, and a hat/scarf & gloves if they really feel the cold. We do spend lots of time outside when the weather allows.
If you are keen bird watchers, don't forget, the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch weekend is coming up soon. Have a look on their website for more details. RSPB Birdwatch
