Y1 PAIRED READING CANCELLED 07/03/18
Unfortunately Paired Reading will not take place on 7th March as the school hall will be in use that afternoon for the postponed Eisteddfod.

BOOK FAIR NOW STARTING THIS THURSDAY!
As a result of last week’s bad weather, the Book Fair containers have not yet been delivered. We have today been given a new date, and the book fair will now start at 3.20pm this Thursday afternoon, which is the day we will be belatedly celebrating World Book Day! The Book Fair will then be open twice daily from 8.45am in the morning and 3.20pm in the afternoon, with the last session being the afternoon of Wednesday 14th March.

We look forward to seeing you there.

ATTENDANCE FOR LAST WEEK
Our whole-school attendance figure for the three days of last week was an excellent 97.1%.

Individual class figures were as follows:

JE 98.7%
SH 94.0%
DJ 97.2%
CH 96.8%
AB/SR 97.8%

HB 98.0%
LS/AM 100.0%
CP 96.0%
CDW 100.0%
JBz 97.3%
MP 94.0%
KM 93.3%
CMM 98.7%

So last week’s star attenders are again Miss Eaton’s class in the Foundation Phase and a special mention to our KS2 winners – Mrs Sheldon and Mrs Morgan’s class and Mrs Williams’ Y4 class, both with 100% attendance. Well done to them all, they will get ten minutes extra play this week!

A REMINDER ABOUT BRING A PLANT TO SCHOOL DAY!
We are asking as many of you as possible to bring in one (or more!) of the following plants on or before Thursday 8th March: early heathers, bugle, crocus bulbs, rosemary, forget-me-nots, lavender, marjoram, aster, thyme, sedum, honeysuckle and late heather.

Maybe you have some of these in your garden that you could take a cutting of?

Please bring any plants to the area by the Snow Dog at the front of the school ready for planting on the 8th March. Thank you in advance, Miss Price.
