Newsletter 21 – 26th February 2021
Welcome to a new half term! With the exciting news that all children will be returning to school on the 8th March, we are busy preparing for our return.
If you didn’t see the letter that I sent out on Wednesday, please check the School page on Class Dojo or your emails. There is some important information that will help you and your child to make the transition as smooth as possible.
In the meantime – please keep going with the remote learning – just one more week to go!
Competition for any Budding Chefs out there…
Dear Sir/ Madam,
My name is Charis and I’m a Casting Researcher at Love Productions; the company behind The Great British Bake Off, The Great British Sewing Bee and The Great Pottery Throw Down.
We are delighted to say, that we have recently opened applications for the 7th series of Junior Bake Off; a Channel 4 programme that celebrates the culinary talent and ambition of the younger generation in Britain.
With this in mind, we are contacting schools in hope that they can help us spread the word regarding this exciting opportunity.
If you could share our casting flyer with the children, parents & staff at your school that would be really appreciated.
We are looking for young budding bakers between 9 -15 years old.
Filming would take place from July 2021, but our applications close on Sunday 28th March 2021.
Interested bakers can apply online at - WWW.APPLYFORJUNIORBAKEOFF.CO.UK.

Fairy Tale Fun!
This week Class 1 began their new topic, immersing themselves in the world of Fairy Tales, starting with ‘The Gingerbread Man’. I have been so impressed with all of the home learning that I have seen. You have designed a bridge to help the gingerbread man cross the river without the help of the sly fox; written instructions to help the gingerbread man build his own bridge; and lots of you enjoyed baking and decorating your own Gingerbread men (or shapes!). I wonder what story we will jump into next!
Keep up the hard work Class 1, and thank you to the parents for supporting your children with all the home learning since the beginning of term. You are all superstars!
Poppy’s Blue Peter Green Badge
Thank you Jessie and Faith for inspiring me to do the Blue Peter Green badge. I haven’t got the badge yet but this is what I have been doing. I made fat balls for the birds in Grandma’s garden and origami birds and foxes to display in the window at home. I have also done regular litter picking on the beach and outside my house and made a poster about pollution.
Brilliant work Poppy – well done!
World Book Day Thursday 4 March 2021 – Message from Miss J - Deadline reminder 4th March
This year we will not be in school for World Book Day, no dressing up, silly hair (unless you want to do that at home of course).
To celebrate this year we are running a ‘Book in a jar’ competition to celebrate World Book Day. You are invited to think about a how a favourite book, could be represented in a simple jar. There are some excellent examples online that you could have a look at to get inspiration. Any clear jar can be used, a coffee jar, jam jar or other. You can put carefully chosen items to represent your book into your jar, selected quotes from your book, perhaps even clues about its characters or setting.
Once you have completed your ‘Book in a jar’ take a clear photo of your entry and email it to the school office by Thursday 4th March. Winning entries will be announced in our Celebration Assembly on Friday 5th March 2021.
The jars can be brought into school (when we return) and will be displayed as part of our World Book Day celebrations.
Many thanks for your support and good luck! Miss J
