A message from The Head of School Mrs Emma Johns
I mentioned in my last newsletter that I had been enjoying carrying out some lovely playground duties in the winter sunshine – I think since sending that out, I have mostly experienced rain! Yet the children happily go outside in their coats and wellies, and continue to enjoy each other’s company as they play. As we approach the Easter holiday and the days are lengthening, I can only hope that the sunshine will soon make an appearance again.
The KS2 Performing Arts Festival at the Brewhouse was a roaring success and I am immensely proud of each and every one of the children. They were confident, happy to take part and, as I have told them, they are most definitely the most talented group of singers that I have worked with in my 31 years of teaching. They have asked that one of the enrichment clubs after Easter is a school choir and I will happily oblige.
This singing was possibly the highlight of our Easter church service – they showed what talented performers they were when the tech failed and they had to sing unaccompanied. Thank you to those parents who attended and supported their children and the school – itwas, I felt, a lovely service to share together.
On March 30 th the PFA arranged a ‘Break the Rules’ day which every child took part in – with varying amounts of rules being broken. We thank the PFA for organising this and all the other events – we are grateful for their support. Today, there are still quite a few children breaking rules, as temporary tattoos, it appears, are not quite as temporary as we all thought, but we raised an amazing £45.00, thank you all so much for your continuing support.
At the time of writing, tomorrow sees the PFA Easter Bake Sale and bonnet parade. The forecast isn’t looking particularly pleasant but I know the Winsham Spirit will shine through.
A reminder that we are still within the ‘listening exercise’ period regarding the Trust and to please feel able to approach or contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
We look forward to welcoming our two new members of staff after Easter– Mrs.Legg and Mrs. White and to a last term of continued learning, exploring and fun-having!
