Huey, our little duckling, who arrived last week, continues to thrive. He has grown a lot and is a great favourite with all the children. Unfortunately, none of the other eggs managed to hatch out so poor Huey has no siblings to keep him company but at the end of next week Mr Berridge will be taking him to his pond where he will have other ducks for companions.

Science week has been a huge success in school. All the children appeared to love Professor Brainstorm’s sessions and I have seen some great science experiments that the children have completed for home learning. Each class chose one winner and when we judged who should be the overall winner, although it was hard, we decided on George from Year 3 for his experiment on ‘Does an Orange Smartie really taste of Orange’. Congratulations to him.

As you know today is Sports Relief. Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the cause and I hope that those who attended the mile walk did not find it too strenuous. There was a great atmosphere and everyone appeared to be having a good time so I just hope that appearances are not deceptive.

Next week is the last week of term and we are having our annual Easter egg decorating competition. Letters have gone out to explain the rules so I hope the children will have fun creating them at home. There will be an Easter egg prize for the winner of each class. We also have ‘Wind in the Willows’ to look forward to. All the staff and pupils in Years 3, 4 and 5 have been working very hard on their production and I am sure that you will all agree that their efforts have been worthwhile when you see it next week. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
