Year 5 Trip to Drayton Manor

At the moment we have only had half of the payments for Drayton manor and the trip is NEXT Wednesday. Unless we have the remaining payments of £25 by Friday, the trip will need to be cancelled.

We do not have the budget to pay the remainder of the money from school fund.

Sorry to those of you who have already paid before the holidays when the letter came out.

Magic potions in 3C

During maths last week, we were learning about ml and l. We had so much fun making magic potions – the children had to measure out the correct about of ml and add it to their mixture to make each potion. Have a look at them in action…


Condover trip

The year 3s went home with a letter about an activity trip to Condover Hall yesterday.  This will be in March when they are in year 4. They were given a talk by the year 4s and they loved hearing about it. You have a letter early as it gives you the option to start paying it in instalments. Please ask your child about it and take a look for yourselves – it’s a beautiful place and really gives them a good opportunity to explore new things.

End of term

Your child should have brought a letter home yesterday which read:

Dear Parents and Carers,

On Friday 19th July (the last day of term) we are closing school at 1:20 pm to allow your family to get away early, perhaps get a cheaper holiday or even just to miss the traffic on that last afternoon.

If you would like to collect your child at 1:20pm you will just need to arrive at school reception at that time and the children can accompany you home.

Only Year 6 children will be allowed to walk home unaccompanied (they will not then be allowed to take younger siblings with them), in preparation for their secondary experience starting in September, and only if the slip below is signed and brought back showing that you give permission for them to come home early.

If your child is a Year 6 and does not have this slip brought back into school, they will stay in school until 3:20 pm as usual.

Have a lovely holiday and see most of you in September.


There is a slip to be brought back into school indicating what you would prefer and if you can’t find it, just copy this one and send it in on a piece of scrap paper.

Child’s name…………………………….…… Class ………………………………….

My child:


Can walk home at 1:20pm on Friday 19th July (Year 6 only) 

Will be collected by an adult at 1:20pm

Will stay until 3:20pm

Please tick to indicate your preference
