Winter definitely arrived this week in Little heath as we had our first significant snowfall of the year – about a centimetre and a half of snow fell very quickly over Potters Bar on Tuesday night but from the children’s reactions the next day you would have thought it was about half a metre. They were not allowed to make snowballs as there was so little snow but we did have a couple of children who attempted to do this and we soon stopped it from continuing –they were more ice balls than snowballs which are far too dangerous to be thrown.
Apart from the snow it has been pretty much business as usual in school. I have had builders in this week to talk about the window repairs/replacements that they are going to carry out in the school. This work is expected to be carried out in the old part of the school over the Easter break and then they expect to finish the rest of the windows in the school later in the year.
We are also in the process of transforming our additional classroom into a technical room for the school so the children can use it for lessons such as art, D & T and food technology. This will be a great addition to the school and we will upload pictures onto our website when it is completed. Funds from the PTA are being used to pay for this so I would like to thank them for all their hard work in raising this money to make it possible.
I hope you all have a great weekend – it is expected to get a little warmer so at least that is good news and for those who do not like the cold it is February next week so Spring is getting closer. I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.
