Last week was an amazing week. Could it be the warm, bright weather that made us all feel energetic and enthusiastic or was it the entries in the Build-A-Bridge competition? Or was it all the exciting, challenging work, activities and sporting events we're enjoying. Whatever's putting the spring in our step we want more of it!
CREATE A HAT-ROYAL WEDDING COMPETITION
If creating a bridge didn't capture the imagination of your child how about our Most Outrageous Hat competition to celebrate the Royal Wedding on Friday 18th May? Be as outrageous as you can be but we would like the decoration to be made by the children rather than buying the complete hat. They can be ghoulish, glamorous or simply ridiculous-there's some fantastic ideas on Google images-one hat for gents is made using Lego, another a colander with wool creating spaghetti and so on. I can't wait to see your creations!
ROYAL WEDDING CELEBRATIONS
On Friday 18th May we're also having fancy dress. The theme is Royal Wedding Guest so get out your best outfits and don't forget that military uniforms all have a place. It's £1 a "guest" entry and, in keeping with the charity focus chosen by Meghan and Harry, we'll send our donations to The Great Northern Children's Hospital as one of our children is having treatment for cancer there. There may be treats to buy during the day, a raffle and Gillian is designing a special "Wedding " lunch. We'll keep you informed.
We have high hopes this year for our football team. Having won both matches this week, the team has to have only one more win to guarantee their place as league champions. We're all holding our breath as nothing is ever a given but could we have yet another trophy in our cabinet by May half term?
On Friday children in the lower junior classes represented the school in a skipping festival. This is an annual event and involved all Year 4 and a scattering of Year 3s. In the whole class skipping dance our team laced third and, in virtually every other category, individuals won medals. Well done to the whole team for the time and effort invested in this tournament-you did the school proud.
