Dear Parents / Carers,

What a difference a week makes! As the weather has started to turn more springlike, EYFS and Year 1 had a visit from Farmer Carl who brought his lamb and Henrietta the hen with him. The children asked lots of interesting questions and were able to help with feeding the lamb.

I would like to thank those parents who have volunteered to take part in our parent council. The first meeting will be on Friday 8th March at 9 am and there are still some places available. If you would like to take part, please let me know on

Finally, a plea for help! Our very well used dishwasher in the staff room has died and looks irreparable. If anyone has an old but working dishwasher that they need a good home for, please do let us know.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher
