Children and staff returned from the half term holidays ready for the seven weeks ahead leading into Christmas - we have much to look forward to.
We have had a busy week again - our Book Fair has been available to all after school throughout the week.
Together, we prepared 57 shoeboxes with Christmas gifts for children who are struggling with poverty in countries other than ours, generous donations from parents and staff have been deeply appreciated.
Our Year 6 children attended Crucial Crew yesterday - again, a super experience for them , led by a wealth of specialist practitioners who gave relevant information as to how our children can help themselves to keep safe.
We were fortunate to have Kath Duffy, our school nurse with us yesterday at our ALN Drop In clinic and she hopes to make this a regular event. I would remind all parents and carers that our drop in clinics remain popular and are there for your service, please feel free to use them.
The highlight of our week has been our Remembrance Service earlier today which was led by our Year 5 children, we were all treated with some fabulous images and words put together by the children themselves. Adults who were present, I am sure, couldn't help but be moved by the presentation and also the marvellous manner in which all children in the hall showed their utmost respect for the occasion. A big thank you to all our families who attended and also our Servicemen and "best friends " from the Day Centre.
Next week, we look forward to Science week at school with events running throughout the day every day - we have Techniquest, Darwin Science, Making Bubble workshops, investigations etc all running throughout the week and we hope to see parents during the year group open sessions.
Have a good weekend everyone and Happy Birthday Poppy for tomorrow - 92 years young, from all the staff and children at Prendergast C.P. School.
