Can you find the Coton cat?

Image result for cat cartoon

There are 6 cats hiding on our school website.  Simply click on any image or photo and see if a cat is hiding there.  Once you have found 5 of them, write down where you found them, put your name on it and hand it to the school office.  The children who have got the correct answers will be put into a hat for a chance of winning a prize on Friday during rewards assembly. Good luck!

Smile for the camera!

It’s coming around to that time again when we have group photographs taken at school.  We have two dates scheduled in the diary, these are as follows:

Class photograph:  Friday, 27th May 2016
Whole School photograph:  Monday, 20th June 2016

The photographs are always taken in the morning to ensure that the children don’t get chance to spill anything / mark their clothing.

Can you please make a note of these dates in your diary – thank you.

If you go down in the woods today…

Today our whole school took part in a sponsored walk around Coton Wood.  We were unsure whether it would actually go ahead as the weather has been so unpredictable lately.  Fortunately, the sun came out at just the right time.  We all walked a total of 2.3 miles, except for Class 1 who took a slightly shorter route, involving some den building.  Mrs Brace informs me that she did a total of just under 5800 steps!  A massive well done to everybody who took part and a big thank you to those parents who were able to join us.  May I also thank Mrs Harris who showed me a good route this morning when I went on a ‘practice run’.  With her help – we didn’t get lost!  Don’t forget to collect in your sponsor money and return to the school office – hopefully we will have raised a good amount for the school funds.

Happy Birthday Ma’am!

Take a look at the photos of our BIG LUNCH to celebrate the 90th Birthday of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.  The children wore crowns, sang the National Anthem and raised their glasses (or plastic cups of cloudy lemonade) to toast her majesty.  The hall was decorated with new displays and union flags!  It was a grand affair!

Preparations going well for Thursday!

Today we held an extended Collective Worship in school which tied in with our theme, ‘life journeys.’  The whole school got together to make and decorate crowns, to wear at our big lunch on Thursday when we celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday.  Mr Genders, our very own artist in residence, led the festivities with the support of all staff members.  It was amazing to see the older children working together with the younger children and everybody getting along so well!  A whole school affair! Take a look below!

Good as new!

 

During the Easter break a team of willing volunteers from Jaguar Land Rover came into school to carry out important maintenance work on the pirate ship in the Early Years outdoor area. Rotten wooden panels were replaced and the whole ship was given a new coat of paint! The shed had a new felt roof put onto it and a new fence was erected to replace the one which was falling down. Gardening work was undertaken to remove the weeds and nettles too. It now means that the children in Class 1 will be able to use it once again! Take a look at the pictures below!

An Eggstatic Evening at Easter Bingo!

Thank you to all those who came along to join in the fun of our Easter Bingo.  It was certainly a great evening and we managed to raise around £400 for FPTA funds, which is amazing.
Thank you also to those who generously donated Easter Eggs for the bingo prizes.  Our prize table was overflowing like a chocolate waterfall, it was lovely to see.  These events couldn’t happen without your generosity of prizes and time given, so once again – THANK YOU.
