Isn’t it great how sunshine can make you feel good! At last summer appears to have finally arrived although I am almost too frightened to discuss it just in case I scare it away. It is hard to believe that the ‘Oakmere Mini Marathon’ almost had to be cancelled just before half term because of the rain. We had some success in the mini marathon with 3 of our Year 4 boys finishing in the top ten for their age range. Charlie, James and Raphael finished 3rd, 8th and 9th respectively so our congratulations go to them although all the children deserve praise for completing the course. Let us hope the good weather lasts until the end of term so that all our sporting fixtures can happen without the endless cancellations that we had to endure last summer – just mentioning the word ‘cricket ‘ last year seemed to be a catalyst for rain.
We have had some disappointing news in school this week. As I informed you yesterday we have had to relocate our cockerel to a farm as it was becoming increasingly aggressive towards the children. Even though he was just trying to protect the hens he pecked at a couple of children with his beak and we could not take the risk of him causing serious injury to anybody. We still have the hens though who seem very happy in their abode.
Next week there will be great excitement in school as we have ’Talent Night ‘on Thursday. A lot of children are taking part and it is always an entertaining evening so I hope to see many of you there. If your child is involved and you have not returned the letter for the tickets remember the closing date is Monday. If there are any tickets left after that they will be on sale from the school office. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
