I always start my blog after a holiday by saying how quickly everyone has settled back into the normal school routine and it has been exactly the same this term – you would think that we had never been away. However, I did have a lovely holiday and the wonderful weather that we had over the Easter weekend helped us have a great end to our break – I just hope that we have more weather like that this term because it does help to make everyone feel better.
You may have noticed that we have had some more work done to the school during the Easter break. The majority of the windows in the old part of the building have all been repaired and painted and the train in the infant playground has been removed and a new piece of equipment will be installed next week. Work on the windows in the rest of the school will start over the first bank holiday weekend and should be finished by June. I have been thinking that with all the work that we have had done to the school it would almost have been cheaper to knock it down and start again but the powers that be decided differently. When all the windows have been completed we will be doing some more internal decorating in the summer holiday and then hopefully, when we come back in September, we should not require any major alterations and we can have a school year free from disruptions.
Next week all the clubs start again which really adds a buzz to school life - there are many new clubs in the summer term so make sure you have signed your child up for the activities they wish to attend on the School Gateway. On Monday representatives from Thameslink and Great Northern will be talking to most of the children about how to stay staff when they are using the railway. We also have class photographs being taken on Tuesday – you may want to make sure that your child looks extra smart on that day. Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday morning.
