There was great excitement as I came into school this morning because one of our ducklings had hatched. I am sure your children have been telling you about the batch of duck eggs that Mr Berridge has been ‘nurturing’ and yesterday, by the crack in one of the shells, we knew something was happening. This morning, when Mr Berridge came in, he was greeted by a little tweeting from the incubator. All the children have been to visit the duckling and although lots of names have been suggested the name Huey seems to be the name that is sticking.
The duckling has chosen a good time to arrive because next week in Little Heath is a very exciting one. Firstly it is science week and there will be lots of different activities going on including a visit from ‘Professor Brainstorm Science Shows, on Wednesday. If your child is also taking part in the science experiment competition they will need to get their entry into school by Thursday, 22nd March.
On Friday it is ‘Sports Relief’ and there will be various sports activities going on with the classes throughout the day. At 2.30pm the whole school will be walking a mile for Sports Relief and we hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us for this. I am also allowing the children to wear sports clothes in school on Friday and they will only have to pay a voluntary contribution of £1.50 if they have not already purchased a Sports Relief wrist band which they must wear on the day.
I will be out of school on Monday and Tuesday of next week so Mrs Zegallo will be in charge in my absence. If you do need to see me for any reason please make an appointment at the office for when I return.
