Hello again and welcome to the final newsletter of this term. What a busy term we have had with so much amazing learning having taken place and many diverse opportunities for our children to enjoy.
Last night I was so proud to be able to attend the West Wilts Dance Festival at the Forum in Bath. Once again the children had been expertly trained and choreographed by Karen Hobson, who had put together a breathtaking routine that told the most wonderful story. The children dominated the stage once again and the performance was inspirational, drawing an enormous cheer from the audience, which was so very well deserved, yet complete silence and awe during the song! My sincere thanks go to Karen for organising, resourcing and planning a spectacular routine that brought the house down and to the children for entertaining; showing such confidence and for representing our school so brilliantly. I was proud of every one of you. Such lovely comments were made about you all afterwards.
This term has been packed with excitement too – a hugely successful Story Day, FoWs disco, trip to BETT, drama workshop, Ocarina day and author visit from Joe Berger, which was so much fun and engaged the children so beautifully. Last week, of course, we recognised and celebrated Safer Internet Day with a fabulous assembly from our digital leaders. As a school we have been having many purposeful discussions around online safety and being kind to each other using the fantastic GoBubble resource, which the children love. It really has helped us to appreciate our online and digital footprint and how to be a good digital citizen.
Just a couple of housekeeping notes. Please can everyone ensure that they have the correct school uniform and shoes in school at all times and that it is named. It is always a bit of a challenge to play match the uniform to the child at the end of a PE session!
Can I wish you a wonderful half term together and I look forward to seeing you again in Term 4 when the fun, excitement and wealth of opportunity continues for us all!
