Mr Spanswick's Words Lent 8
So we finally succumbed to the snow! I hope as you read this bulletin there have been stories in your households of sledging, snowball fights, and snowman competitions!
With the fun and joy that a thin layer of very cold water can bring to the world, there are also a few disappointments - we are hopefully re-arranging football tournaments, cancelled matches, author visits etc. We did not have to cancel our Year 5 Charity morning yesterday, and along with Year 6 on Tuesday, close to £500 has already been raised in a short space of time. Well done to all the boys. Year 4 will have their charity event on Monday, and it promises to be lots of fun too!
Some pupil news - last term some of the boys in Mrs Vine’s Young Writers club took part in a writing competition - writing a short piece about a toy which ‘came alive.’ The boys were delighted to hear through the post that their pieces had been published in a book. They are still eagerly waiting to hear whether any of their pieces will be in the final selection as winning essays. More information to follow, and very well done boys.
A big thank you from me go to all of my staff. Last week I got struck down by the flu, and along with my deputy Head, Judy Nott, who has broken her leg, the Senior Leadership team has been a bit short over the last fortnight! All of the staff stepped up to the plate to oversee the smooth running of the school, never more so than yesterday when we were battling the elements as well as the time to get everyone home safely! Thank you to all of our parents as well for being so patient on the driveway.
I will leave you to enjoy slightly extended weekend. I hope you and your families enjoy the snow, travel safely and we hope to see you all on Monday.
