Hugo’s Crown! Vote for Hugo
Hugo Harris-Jones (Y4) has entered a competition to design a crown for the King.
He needs all our votes to get him the win. Here’s a link to his entry on Facebook Please “like” the photo of his entry as your vote.
King’s Coronation Celebrations
We will be celebrating the King’s Coronation on Friday 5th May and will be holding a ‘Big lunch’ where classes can join together to share and celebrate. Children who have school dinners will all have a pre ordered packed lunch that day so we can picnic outside together if possible, so please let us know if your child would like a lunch that day via parent pay who would normally bring a packed lunch asap. Children will pre order their sandwich choice in school by Friday 28th April.
The children are also going to be busy behind the scenes over the next few weeks planning stalls for a special indoor market held in the afternoon, as a Prince’s Trust inspired enterprise. Individual class teachers will be in touch if they need anything for their stalls.
We will be raising money for the Prince’s Trust as well as fundraising to enable us to buy seven fruit trees for the school to mark the Coronation. Children can spend up to £2 each (suggested amount) at the market and all items will be designed to share with friends and families and priced 0.50p each. Children should bring their money (up to £2) with them to school. Families are welcome into classes from 2pm to share the selected purchases with their children (imagine books, lemonade, cake etc). We will collect their money and give them a card to use at the market.
Families can also access the market 2.00 – 2.30pm themselves (please bring 0.50p's as change will be limited) and there will be a schoolwide performance at 2.40pm of The Kings Song to enjoy.
You are welcome to take your children home early after their performance, from 2.45pm, to enjoy the long weekend and celebrations (normal Friday after school clubs will still run).
Children are welcome to wear red, white and blue for the day to mark the occasion and we have also bought a commemorative leather bookmark for each child as a special gift which they can take home.

Online Safety Newsletter
I thought it might be useful for parents to know what the NHS recommends regarding school attendance and illness. It can be a difficult decision to make, especially when you know how important school attendance is. Hopefully this guide will help.
We’ve got the bank holiday weekend coming up, so we will see you all back in school on Tuesday 2nd May.
