Our five little ducklings have doubled in size this week. The children have been enjoying visiting them and learning about them.
Letters have been sent home about our forthcoming theatre visit. This has become an annual event within school. It is a great opportunity for children to experience live theatre up close and to inspire a love of the arts. Please help us to continue to have exciting events such as these by returning the letter and payment as soon as possible. There are adult spaces also available.
"Don't forget the PRPSA Disco Party on Saturday 5th May! You should have received a flier and also an email with the form attached. Details on the PTA webpage http://www.princesrisboroughprimary.bucks.sch.uk/pta/
The deadline for bookings/payment is the end of Monday (30 April). If we don't get enough bookings, we will have to cancel. Don't miss out!"
The Disco is great fun- please book in order to support our PTA and the school.
Parking continues to be a concern. This week we have had a near miss involving a child and a car. This was a scary event for both parties and for the parents and children who witnessed it. It is vitally important that all visitors to the school think about the safety of our children when using and parking on Wellington Avenue. Some of the speeds witnessed are dangerously high. Many motorists are both breaking the law and risking the lives of children. We will again raise concerns with the local police and parish council.
On Monday we celebrated St George’s day with a special assembly-it is lovely to see the wide range of topics covered by both the staff and children. This was proceeded by a Year 1/2 teaching opportunity for their topic ‘Fire Fire’ centred around the Great Fire of London. The poetry that has been produced as a result of this session has been phenomenal- well done to everyone.
Mrs Howlett, Miss Bacon and Mrs Baughan all joined our Local Governing Board on Thursday evening for a training session. We were able to invite representatives from the other schools in the Trust. This was an informative session in which it was clear how important our Governors are. We would like to thank them for their continued hard work and commitment to our school.
This week we said farewell to Sam Spittles. Sam has been with us every Wednesday since September as part of his Year 11 work experience. He has been a huge help and part of the team. Good Luck with your exams Sam and with your plans for next academic year, you will be missed by all of us.
Today we have had meetings for our sports council, school council and parent forum. We will circulate key discussion points in due course.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
