Thank you to you all on behalf of myself and the staff for your support and kind messages and gifts this Christmas. It was lovely to see so many of you at performances at school and St Catherine's this week. The children were marvellous in their performances and thoroughly enjoyed their last day at school today with the pantomime and a party. We hope that you have a good Christmas holiday and look forward to seeing the children on January 7th for the start of the Spring term.
We hope you are enjoying your half term break and having a good rest. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 4th November where you'll be starting a new topic of 'Blackwell Bear Travels'. I wonder which exciting country or continent your class bear will be taking you to! Remember to bring back your P.E. kits and, especially after the recent drop in temperature, hats, scarves and gloves would be useful too (named please).
Thank you to all those who showed an interest in becoming a governor and to our three candidates. We are grateful for your interest and dedication. Claire Kirkby-Webb has been voted onto the Governing Body. Thank you all.
Mrs Hampton and Mrs Dudek will be returning to the classrooms at Blackwell after half term. This is because, sadly, Miss Turner will be relocating during the year and we are preparing for her unknown date of departure. Thank you.
Memory Cafe- The children are looking forward to the Memory Cafe on Friday morning. This event is for invited residents / family members who have already spoken with class teachers about being prepared to talk with the children about their memories or family members' memories of WW2. We are welcoming eight Burcot Grange residents. This morning is not a general event for everyone. Thank you.
Children in Red, Green, Purple, Yellow and Blue Classes will experience an autumn ramble on Monday morning. Please make sure that their wellies are in school along with a waterproof coat and spare bottoms/ socks in case of a downpour!
