Now (what has happened this week)

Welcome to our weekly newsletter!

A happy Friday from all of us at Balladen School!


Thank you for spending your time in reading our newsletter. We like to share all of the amazing things and learning that happens at Balladen during the week. Please do have a look all the way through to see the learning that our incredible children participate in.


We came back to school on Wednesday after a lovely half term and two inset days. It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces and children ready and eager to learn. Lots of our children must have had a great time outdoors as there was lots of sun-kissed faces in assembly on Wednesday!


This week we have the Life Education bus in school this week. Many of the classes have had the opportunity to spend a session in the bus and have learned about making healthy choices and living.


On Thursday we had some catch up swimming sessions. Our assembly focused on The Queen's birthday. The children listened attentively to the all of the information about The Queen.


On Friday we held our Celebration Assembly. It is always a privilege to have parents and carers come to school to take part in learning and experiences. |I think we all enjoyed singing 'Happy Birthday' to all of the children, as well as the Queen. The children had a special lunch on Friday to celebrate The Queen's birthday.


Thank you for reading. We have a very busy week next week with trips, sports days as well as England V Wales!


Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday!


Another week of learning and fun at Balladen!


With respect,


Mr. Neil Ringrose
