Weekly comment from our stage coordinators

Last year’s participants in the Premier’s Reading Challenge have now received their certificates, and a hearty congratulations to the parents and children who actually saw this through. The Challenge requires the children to read a certain number of books in a given time, from a list of good quality titles. This year’s Challenge is now underway, and our thanks to Mrs. Cherry Hopley who is the force behind the Challenge.

This year the Challenge will be for 2nd Class, 3rd Class and 4th Class, and parents of children in those classes should by now have received an email and link. We look forward to a large number of children reading a large number of books!

Another triumph – Crunch&SipÆ this has been very successfully and easily introduced and the playground is resonant with the sound of crunching! Once again, this initiative has received the full support of the parents. This is a very worthwhile move, helping children to strengthen their taste for fresh and healthy food. Many thanks to the parents and teachers.

Echoes of Shakespeare are beginning to whisper about the school Zoe Emanuel will begin her weekly drama classes with the Infants this week. Plays have been chosen and the children will be initially prepared with voice and movement training, before talent spotting and casting begins. The Infants Festival is early in Term 3.
