Dear Parents / Carers,

What a productive week we have had this week. The children have been engrossed in their learning as I have been into classes and the progress in their books is clear to see.

Year 3 led the Key stage 2 assembly this morning and enjoyed sharing their work in music, English and history with us and their parents. They spoke beautifully, sang with gusto and were clearly proud of their learning. Well done Year 3 Milligan. Thank you also to the parents who came to support their children, next week it is the turn of Year 6 Angelou.

You may have noticed some new faces around school as we currently have 3 teaching students training with us. They are Miss Kavanagh in Y1 Coehlo, Miss Wharmby in Year 4 Zephaniah and Miss Wilkins in Y5 Shakespeare. They will be with us until Easter.

Have a lovely weekend,

Karen Williams

Head Teacher

Message from Head Pupils

It has been a very busy week with brilliant school work.We have also had a fantastic worship in which Y3 (Milligan) shared their fabulous work from the past weeks. We are delighted that the sun has started to come out which means that soon we can get back on the field! Y4,5,6 are getting really excited to go to Sheffield Arena next Thursday. Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!

We are currently researching crisp packet recycling points and trying to find how to become a crisp packet recycling point. The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.
