As I informed you last week I have been out of school quite a bit this week so I am looking forward to next week when I will be more school based. One of my meetings took me to a school in Tower Hamlet and although it was a lovely school as I sat in the head’s office looking out at cars and flats it made me appreciate the lovely grounds that our school is set in. I will now really appreciate the fact that my window looks out over greenery.
I just realised this week that I had not informed the parents which charity we had donated the money raised at the Harvest Festival to. The school council meeting to decide this was cancelled as the KS2 children were on a theatre trip but when the School Council did meet they decided to donate the £400 raised to Cancer Research as a lot of families have been affected by someone suffering from the disease.
Next week we have a real treat for all the children in KS1 and KS2. On Friday there will a ‘Junk Music Project’ attending the school and they will be holding workshops throughout the day for many of the classes. Unfortunately the organisers do not think that they are suitable for children in the foundation stage so they will not be able to take part. You may find that the rest of the school becomes so inspired by the workshops that they will be raiding your cupboards and bins next weekend to make musical instruments. I just hope that your neighbours will not mind the noise!
