We’ve had an exciting week in school. Reception have been very busy making fruit salad and seeing the “Little Red Hen” production with Nursery. Our duck eggs have hatched and we now have two ducklings in Reception! Year 5 had a great time watching tennis at the Edgbaston Priory club on Monday and our choir sang at Arc on Tuesday.
Y2 have almost finished their “Minibrum” project – look out for photos of the children’s designs on the blog shortly.

Do you know what your children are accessing online? We have had some issues in school and issues raised by parents where children are using social media outside school. School has a very clear policy on e-safety which is on the website and there is also a link to “CEOPS” which gives good advice on keeping safe online. Many social media sites require children to be 13 before they register. Please check and talk to your children so that they remain safe.
For everyone’s safety, please make sure that you don’t park on the pavement, double yellow lines, or hatched area outside school. There are parking spaces in nearby streets and just across the park.

Newsletters are put on the school website on Mondays, where you can use the Google translate facility for your home language.
